From portrait mode to time lapse, the iPhone camera can surely hold its own, especially compared to its flip-phone predecessors and their potato-quality pics. Really, it’s no wonder no one’s buying digital cameras anymore. Why spend extra cash on a gadget that only takes pictures when your current phone can already do so, and just as well?

Still, there’s one feature Apple has yet to add to its smartphones’ cameras, and that’s the ability to take quality 360-degree footage. As for filling that void, you have two options:
1. You can drop a couple hundred dollars on a handheld VR camera, or
2. You can pick up the Insta360 Nano S iPhone VR Camera.
In the interests of convenience and your wallet, let’s go with the latter, shall we?
The Insta360 is a lightweight gadget that makes creating VR content a piece of cake. It connects right into your iPhone’s lightning port to turn it into a 360-degree 4K camera so you can live-stream, video chat, and take incredible panoramic footage without any extra equipment.
Simply tap a button to capture a shot of everything around you using the FreeCapture feature, then piece together the good shots in one frame. Once you’ve settled on the best shots, you can share them instantly on your social media accounts with a single touch.
