    Insta360 Air reviews

    Air Camera for Android Devices (Micro-USB) is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 7.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Low price, High Fun! The camera works perfect, it's a good gear for starting in the world of 360 content. Things you have to take in count for your needs it's that the camera have no battery, no memory, it's just an extensin of your smarthphone, like a plug-in and will depends of the battery and memory of your phone. The quality of the video it's good enough for fun and sharing purposes, nothing professional. The pictures are great to use in social networks and digital uses. It's a excellent gear for save and sharing your moments, your travels or special events, absolutely recommended and the best thing is the price. I'm very happy with this purchase and everybody where I go ask me amazed, What's that!?

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best photo gadget you should not be without. When I received the introductory notice from B&H I was hooked after seeing the pics, but I couldn't understand how the person taking the pic was in them. So I called tech support to find out if my interpretation was correct. Yep it was, so then and there I placed my order. When I started using the camera, it was just amazing. I'm taking it on my vacation trip, just to think of all the places I visit I'll get a 360 degree pic of them, my friends and me included which is shareable. You won't regret this small investment. I worked right away on my Samsung 7 edge.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Fun little camera as long as you're aware of the limitations Note: I bought the USB C version, but this is the same aside from the plug, so I'm adding my review here as well since these have separate listings and there are, as of now, no other reviews. ------------------- I own this, the LG 360, the Gear 360, and the Theta S. All have their pros and cons, and (spoiler alert) my favorite overall, especially when taking price into account, remains the LG 360. That being said, this adds some very cool functionality and comes at a reasonable price. As you can see in my pictures, this is small - even on its stand/holder, it's dwarfed by the Samsung Gear 360. You actually can put it in your pocket (in the holder), although it's not super comfortable... but at least you *can*, unlike the Gear 360. The holder (silicone) is actually well designed and protective. This is much easier to handle without touching the lenses than the Gear 360 (which Im using for comparison since its of the same form factor), although the Theta S and LG 360 remain the easiest to use without accidental lens touching. Resolution and image quality are... adequate. Even on my Pixel XL, I was only getting2560 x 1280 video, so the partial support for3008x1504 must be for a very select set of phones. Quality is good in terms of color, but the images and video tend to get really blown out by bright lights, more so that other 360s, and the lens quality isn't as good as that of the others I own. Then again, you're not buying this for quality (which, again, is fine, just not exceptional) - you're buying it for quick (even live) access to video. That's where this shines - quick/live video access. Because it's mounted on your phone, transfer between the app and your main storage (e.g., Google Photos) is very fast. Photo transfer on any of the lower-end 360s is fine, but videos tend to take *forever*. Not on this. It's not instant, but it's a small fraction of the video time, unlike a multiple of it as with all the others. As a result, you can take and then share video almost immediately without first needing the long, tedious, disconnection-prone process youd have with other cameras. Likewise, you can share to Instagram, Facebook, YouTube, etc very quickly. The real winner here is live streaming, and its arguably the only truly legitimate reason to get this. Ive tested it with YouTube and it works. 1280p/6mbit video livestreams without issue as long as your network allows it. I did it over WiFi and LTE - both worked. You can lower the resolution and bitrate to suit your connection. Its very very cool, assuming you have some reason to livestream 360 video. I dont, not really, but I wanted to try out this camera anyway. This comes with an extension cable thats semi-rigid and is meant for computer use (Windows app now, Mac one coming soon), but I found that, with an adapter, it works in my Pixel XL and allows me to use the camera when the case is on my phone, but I fear the cable-induced movement isnt good for the phones USB C port. There are some notable cons: * image/video resolution and quality will be beaten by the other 360s, including the LG 360 which is of similar cost. * you cannot charge your phone while using this without some complex setup; it uses the only port your phone has * you're limited to your phone's storage (except when livestreaming), and because of how this works, it first stores in one format, then can be shared to a standard one, so everything takes up twice the space until you clean up * you cant use this without it attached to your phone, so using it on, say, amusement park rides ups the ante for possible loss * it wont plug into your phone if its in most types of phone cases, so consider that * the software works but can be a bit flaky; you might need to stop it, then plug the camera back in That being said, this does the job and is fun to use. It has limitations, but the livestreaming is a killer feature, and it works.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great 360 camera Works like a champ! The app even allows you to have it automatically work upside down if your USB is on the bottom of your phone (which most are). Really good quality pics and video, uses the phone for audio which is great and makes it super (seriously!) easy to upload to Youtube, FB, etc along with live-streaming.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Fun Time First 360 camera for me and I can see some fun times ahead at a cheap price. Works well on my Droid Turbo. Tried to put an extension cord on it to have camera separated from phone but it did not work. I will take it snow skiing to see if it can handle low temps.
