    Insta360 Air Reviews

    Air Camera for Android Devices (USB Type-C) is rated 4.2 out of 5 by 11.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Fantastic as long as you're aware of the limitations 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 Definitely worth the buy! I am pretty content with my purchase of the Insta360 Air for Android. Although resolution isn't the greatest, it's perfectly understandable due to it being so portable and just so flexible to work with. However, it's a lot better than I expected! It's not a battery killer either, which in my opinion is very important if you plan on broadcasting live on facebook! Which is another super cool perk about having this gadget! I mean, how cool is it to be able to let your friends see the world through your eyes in 360?? and in real time? It's awesome!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great little 360 cam The camera is really nice and convenient to carry around. The quality is surprisingly amazing for such a little camera at this price point (I have a vuze cam as well and the insta360 takes FAR better photos - kinda ridiculous considering the difference in prices). The auto animation features built into the app are fun. The only con I can think of is that it's not as easy to upload directly to social media - they want to do so through their insta360 cloud service rather than just directly exporting to social media like other photo apps.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very useful to learn about 360 photo+video I bought it to learn about 360 photo+video. The camera requires an app running on Android to capture/take photo or video. Then you need to export it, if you want to post it somewhere. Also for video on YouTube I had to run it on my computer through Spatial Media Metadata Injector. Otherwise YT doesn't know it's a 360 video. I wish app already did it for me (maybe it's a special export option I didn't know). Videos, when I view on YT from my Google's Daydream View from this appear to be SD quality. However it is expected from this inexpensive device (the captured data is used for all dimensions instead of a selected view). What I've learned: (i) avoid being in the photo/video i.e. raise the camera, or use a tripod and timer, ... (ii) when taking video DO NOT MOVE the camera, otherwise your viewers through VR goggles will get sick

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great gadget for pictures and amazing videos I have a Lenovo Moto Z, so I bought the USB Type-C model. Although it has several bugs, I could take amazing pictures and videos, and post it on Facebook. Instagram is not able to complete view 360 pictures and videos, but Facebook is able, and my smartphone also can open the videos and pictures.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from If you have more money,I recommend looking for another model Considering the price and compared to competitors is a good way to get started with the 360 cameras. Her hardware is a bit bad and continually crashes when connected to the phone, causing you to take it out and put it back on the cell phone constantly. The quality of the pictures could be a little better and this leaves something to be desired. If you have more money, I recommend looking for another model.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from A must have if you are a 360 enthusiast Took awhile to understand how to use it. Found email to request beta program. Beta works pretty good so far. Viewers said it looks good, but I still don't know what site it's going to. Working on that
