Insta360 Announces The Insta360 GO 3S

June 18, 2024

Insta360 has announced the Insta360 GO 3S, enhancing the amazing handsfree experience of the GO 3 with a powerful 4K camera. Everything users loved about GO 3 is now even better with higher image quality and better usability.

What exactly does the GO 3S bring to the table? Let’s start with 4K video resolution.

  1. 4K Resolution:

4K video from a camera that is the size of your thumb is a remarkable feat. Paired with the different mounting options available it becomes a tool for unbridled creativity. Unorthodox POVs and crystal clear resolution? Who wouldn’t be up for that?

  1. Easy Switch:

Switch between portrait and landscape orientations between shooting, perfect for including missing objects, or excluding unwanted objects, from the camera’s FOV, without needing to cancel and restart the recording. 

  1. Interval Video 

You can now set the Insta360 GO 3S to automatically come on, start recording, and go off at intervals. This has a variety of applications. From allowing you to prepare your scene beforehand, to allowing you anticipate moments and capture them without having to fiddle with your camera

  1. Megaview

Courtesy of the new 4K resolution, the Insta360 GO 3’s Ultrawide FOV has been replaced by the Megaview FOV of the Insta360 GO 3S. A wider resolution with sharper edges and straighter lines; all the distortions found in the Ultrawide FOV are now a thing of the past

  1. Locate with Apple “Find My”

Its small size means the Insta360 GO 3S can easily be misplaced. However, with the addition of the Apple “Find My” feature, you can use your iPhone or any device connected to your Apple ID to locate your GO 3S if it goes missing.

  1. Waterproof up to 10m (33ft)

A boost from the 5m depth IPX6 rating of the GO 3. That said, the new lens guard designed for the GO 3S must be fixed on the camera before submerging the camera to such depths. 

  1. Gesture control

Perfect for scenarios where you want to record hands free and are either unable or unwilling to use voice control to operate the camera. 

  1. Cancel Recording

Instantly cancel and delete the current recording and start again. Keep your storage in check and only leave the best shots to go through.

  1. Kids Mode

Stops their little fingers from making accidental presses, silences prompt sounds and dims the indicator lights.


The GO 3S is truly an upgrade on the original Insta360 GO 3. GO 3 users that want to upgrade can purchase the camera as a standalone seeing as the GO 3 action pod can also work with the GO 3S once the required software updates have been made. 

If you’ve never used a GO 3 camera however, and are looking for a camera that allows a hands free shooting experience, offers the chance to get shots from unheard of POVs, and offers 4K resolution, you should definitely try the GO 3S. It’s an experience you can’t find anywhere else.
