5My new favorite travel companion!!
By Bill Tsai
I have more cameras than I can count (5D2, 7D, M, M2, S100, GoPro4S, to name a few), yet I decided to purchase a Insta360 Nano for my business trip to London this summer. I even paid extra to purchase from a 3rd party just so I could have it in time. After spending a week in London with it, my verdict is this - this is probably the best $240 for camera equipment I've spent!

Insta360 Nano is so easy to use - basically one button operation. Easier than GoPro. Once you put in MicroSD card (I use a 64GB), you can shoot without it being attached to your iPhone. It uses 2x 210-degree lenses to stick together a 360-degree image, almost magic-like. I could not imagine it worked better. When I walked around London with it taking photos and video, I was stopped several times with people asking me what this is. When I showed them the 360 images, I can see their jaws drop!

Once Insta360 is connected to my iPhone 6 Plus, it automatically downloads the images to your phone. You can then export / post the 360 picture to Facebook. Facebook automatically detects this being a 360-degree image, and activates the 360 viewer where your friends can turn their phones and see your environment. It's just like they are there with me! (well almost). Many friends asked me how I did it. Between Facebook and ad-hoc demos in London, I think I sold more than 10 Insta360s to my friends and random people.

After coming home I attached the phone to my VR goggle (basically a plastic Google Cardboard) and here I am, in my kitchen, reliving London in all its 360-degree glory!!! I was amazing how much I would have missed taking a picture from just one angle, even though I also have my EOS M2 with a 11mm lens on it. However, I did still take many hundreds of pics on the M2 (great camera btw) just because the Insta360 image quality just isn't as good as M2 with its APS-C sensor. But for what it does, it does so well.

I'm so glad I purchased it for the trip because now I have memories of London - Big Ben, Westminster Abbey, Trafalgar Square, British Museum, Buckingham Palace - all in 360.

I can't remember the last time I spent about $200 for a lens or an accessory and had as much fun with it. Get it as soon as you can!!

(My sample images doesn't do the 360 pictures justice, but trust me, when posted onto FB it takes on a whole new dimension.)

4Fun toy, but not as fun as it could be, and the sharing functionality is garbage.
By J. Sommers
Overall, this is a very cool product and a fun toy. As a photographer who has been shooting equirectangular panoramas manually for a decade, I can certainly appreciate the value of being able to take one with a single click of a button. In that regard, this is a great camera. However, I call it a toy because it doesn't produce high quality printable output.

However, there are some things that are a little disappointing.
* The resolution on the images this produces is not great. Decent for sharing on social media but not high enough quality that you'd be able to print.
* When attached to an iPhone, both the camera and the phone get very hot, very quickly. This is disconcerting.
* The app you need to use to use this camera is basic, not super user friendly, and runs upside down, whether the camera is attached or not.
* Edit: This is no longer entirely true: The only way to share the photos/videos you take with this is to use the Insta360 Cloud, which hosts the image and allows you to share it on social media as a link. That is the lamest part- who knows who gets to see your work on this nebulous Insta360 cloud? Social Media users would rather see it within the context of the social media app you posted to and not have to click a link to go to an external site. If you do share it through their cloud, the presentation of your photo looks like one giant advertisement for Insta360, which is also pretty lame.
* The Insta360 support seems non-existent. I tried reaching out to them through facebook as well as through links provided within the app and have gotten zero acknowledgement or response to my questions and/or feedback.

Edit 2: In the end, this has turned into a waste of money. It's inconvenient to use, can't connect a tripod mount, and very low quality images. So it just sits on my desk, and I'm still taking equirectangular panoramas the old fashioned way.

5Very nice!
By Eddie
I've had mine for a week, and after playing with it I have to say it works great for us! Just a little background, I have had the Gear 360, and the Theta S. The Gear360 and the Theta S both had different problems so we had to return these (Gear360 was out of focus when using it on a hot day) and the ThetaS was never able to connect via wifi even after resetting, and doingeverything we could.) The Insta360 has not had any trouble with taking photos or video and the stitch is very good. Photos seem pretty sharp for our needs, and the video is slightly better than the Theta, but not as sharp as the 4k Gear360 (when it worked).

The only major gripe I have is there is about a 1 second delay from pressing the shutter to a photo taken and there's no audible feedback. I'm sure these can be addressed with a firmware update. Would dock off a half star if I could for this, but will give the benefit of the doubt.

The software itself is very good overall with just a few quirks that I think will get ironed out with firmware/software updates.. surprisingly decent for a 1.0 product.

Wishlist:
1) accessories (selfie stick, or mini tripod, or something...)
2) ability to do a 330 degree mode (sometimes the photographer doesn't want to be in the shot ;)
3) using the device horizontally, the review of the photo behavior is strange to navigate
4) Adjustments to the photo/video (color, contrast, bright, etc)
5) Export video/photo as seen in the viewer (eg. I want a little planet export view but people not to change it when they view)
