Analysis: Insta360 Nano, the camera to capture images and 360 video with your iPhone

Videos and 360-degree photos have started to reach the general public in droves recently, but they have quickly caught on with how eye-catching the format is. In a moment where everything revolves around multimedia content, Being able to observe in an image not only what is right in front of the lens, but also everything that is located around it, is a characteristic to take into account.

For generating this type of content to become commonplace, however, it is necessary that the very action of taking photos or videos ceases to be an uncomfortable and expensive process. Today there are not many cameras capable of ccapture 360-degree images and that they do not have any commitment in relation to their price or their dimensions, the two main assets that they can play against. During the last weeks I have been trying one of those that, more or less, gets rid of these ballast, and this is what I have been able to experience.

Portable, compact, that does not make you want to forget at home "by mistake"

Insta360-Nano Camera

The name of this model is Insta360 Nano. No, I am not from Valencia, nor have I forgotten to put any punctuation mark in the previous sentence nor, of course, have I escaped from any Telecinco program. The word "Nano" refers on this occasion to its size, which is really reduced if put in perspective with some of the cameras that can be found today in the market. This allows it to be comfortable to carry in your trouser pocket and not be too uncomfortable when using it.

Its main characteristic, however, is not this. What really makes the camera special is its connection to iPhone using Lightning, transforming the device into one capable of capturing 360-degree images in just a few seconds (it can also be used independently without being connected to the iPhone). Its dedicated application serves both to show what the camera is capturing and to view and manage the images and videos once they are taken.

Going into slightly more technical details, it is surprising to find a resolution 3040 × 1520 in such a small device. The result is not as perfect as the photos that can be taken with the iPhone directly, but it is certainly not bad. It has an 800mAh battery inside that, although it may fall short with intensive use, it should not be a problem in most cases.

Aim, shoot, share

Social networks are today the life of the party, the queens of the mambo. Everything that happens has to be published, shared, commented there. With 360º images it shouldn't be any different if it weren't for the fact that many of these networks, as well as instant messaging applications and the like, do not have native support to display this type of format the way it is supposed to be seen. The result? On many occasions, it is not directly shared.

With Insta360 nano it is different - and this point has very pleasantly surprised me - because it has some options that will allow the receiver to experience that enveloping sensation no matter where it is shared. In addition to being able to upload it to the platform provided by the company and thus be accessible through a link, at the time of sharing the image you can create an animation that automatically shows a particular visualization in the form of a rotation as a video. This interest in making the content created more 'social' actually makes an interesting and positive difference in everyday camera use.

A pocas palabras

A camera of this type, today, is not intended to be used constantly on a daily basis, but rather as an original way to capture memories and experiences. Within this definition, the Insta360 Nano defends itself with ease, being ideal to take anywhere and take a photo or video quickly and without any added complications compared to a normal photo beyond having to connect the device to the iPhone. .

You can find it in The Amazon for € 239, and if you use the discount code L7P42U85 the price will be reduced to € 167 until July 31.
