The best part of traveling is making memories and capturing them. However, lugging around a big camera takes up space, adds weight, and places limits on capturing fun action shots. As of right now, travel buff Nick Yiu likes throwing in his tiny but mighty GoPro to take versatile footage, but has his eye on the Insta360 X3 action camera. As the name suggests, the camera films at every angle, and assures you won't miss a shot -- even if you're skydiving.
ZDNET's June Wan did have the chance to go hands-on with the Insta360 X3 in September, and his experience confirmed that it's worth a spot on Nick's wishlist and our best travel tech list.
"Whether you're a professional or a beginner, the X3 brings a lot to the table for all to play," said Wan.
This third-generation action cam is the Insta360's most compact, refined design yet and, according to Wan, "the exterior is gilded with a rugged blend of rubber and texturized ridges which assures you that the X3 can hang in the toughest outings and/or within the slipperiest of fingers."
Perfect for long adventures, the camera is also capable of lasting two to three days on one charge, limiting yet another device you have to charge on your trip. Additionally, Insta360 puts "art" in artificial intelligence, as June Wan puts it, packing a suite of photo editing AI features on the back and front end.
