Best Family Camera: Insta360 GO 3 is a Wearable Cam for Kids and Parents

It’s easier than ever to record millions of clips of your kids with the tap of a button. But how do you pick the best family camera for you and your kids?

How many times have you as a parent wished you could just put your phone away and live in the moment with your kids? With a wearable camera for kids like Insta360 GO 3, you can enjoy your time together without worrying about filming.

You or your kid can put the camera on, tap to record and go! The camera instantly captures the POV of whoever is wearing it. Imagine seeing your child’s first steps, first trip, first game—all from their own perspective. 

Insta360 GO 3 is a wearable camera for kids

Most family videos are taken from the parent’s perspective. How many dads never appear in their family videos because they are always behind the camera or phone? 

With Insta360 GO 3, your kid can become the cameraman instead. As a wearable camera, it effortlessly captures everything from the wearer’s point of view. 

So how exactly does this wearable camera for kids work? GO 3 comes with two wearable accessories: a Magnet Pendant and an Easy Clip. With the Easy Clip, just clip the camera to your child's hat and adjust the angle as needed.

With the Magnet Pendant, just put the pendant around your child’s neck, place it under their shirt and then stick GO 3 on top. The camera is now safely secured for any of your kid’s adventures.

You can simply tap GO 3 to start recording or control the camera from the Action Pod or the Insta360 app. Watch the camera’s feed while your kid plays, then start recording when you’re ready.

Parents can keep their hands free

Of course, you as a parent can wear GO 3 too! All of the accessories come in a universal size, so GO 3 can be a wearable camera for kids and adults both.

Insta360 GO 3 also comes with a Pivot Stand, which you can use to mount the camera on your child’s stroller, tricycle, baby bottle, or favorite toy. The stand also unscrews to reveal a 1/4” mounting point for attaching to a selfie stick or tripod. All these accessories come free with your purchase of GO 3.

By wearing or mounting GO 3, you now have two free hands to do whatever you want! You can capture moments of yourself playing together with your kids, tossing them in the air, or pushing their stroller without your phone getting in the way. That means more quality time with your kids and better-quality shots.

Families can take GO 3 anywhere

The next reason GO 3 is the best family camera is its small size. GO 3 weighs just 35 grams (1.2oz), and it's smaller than your thumb! You can slip GO 3 in your pocket or diaper bag and take it out when you need it.

You can also carry GO 3 with the Action Pod to keep it charged in between adventures. With the Action Pod, you can shoot up to 170 minutes. Phew, then it’s probably nap time!

Recording while you’re running after your kids can often result in shaky or blurry footage. Not with Insta360 GO 3. FlowState stabilization keeps the footage smooth, wherever you or your kid go with GO 3. Tumbles, falls or jumps are no match for its stabilization algorithms.

Coupling all of this with an IPX4 water-resistant design for the Pod and IPX8 waterproofing to 16ft (5m) for the camera, GO 3 is perfect for capturing memories anywhere. A few spilled drinks or rain puddles? No problem. For summer fun, take it to the beach or into the pool!

The best family camera for editing clips quickly

The worst part of coming home from a family trip is having to go through all your videos and edit them to share with friends and family. How many hours have you wasted carefully selecting the best clips and fiddling with the footage? Sometimes it’s easier to just not share your videos at all.

The best family camera is one that allows you to edit its clips quickly and conveniently. The Insta360 app does parents one better—it edits your clips for you. GO 3’s FlashCut auto editor uses AI image recognition technology to select the best shots for you and combines them together into a stylized edit.

AI Editing with Auto Edit in the Insta360 app

Just download your footage to your phone with the app to start editing. Pop GO 3 in the Action Pod and connect to your phone over WiFi.

Then choose from themes like “Cute Kids”, “Smiles” and “Theme Parks” and let FlashCut take over. FlashCut will sort your clips based on theme and shot composition. You can add music or text to the video as you’d like, then export and share to your social media channels. You’re done in minutes!

If you do have time to spare, the Insta360 app is equipped with a range of manual editing tools. Adjust your video's aspect ratio, playback speed, color palette, and more. You can also combine photos and clips from your smartphone with GO 3’s clips to make sure you get all the best shots of your family together.
