4K web camera 'Insta360 Link' appearance review that can move and track the subject

There are many opportunities for live distribution of video using a web camera, such as video conferences and online seminars. However, webcams installed in notebook PCs and inexpensive external webcams tend to have problems such as ``the image is too coarse'' and ``the angle of view is narrow and it is difficult to shoot whiteboards.'' With ' Insta360 Link ', which appeared in August 2022, you can use 4K shooting and automatic framing functions using AI. Since such Insta360 Link arrived at the editorial department, I first checked the appearance thoroughly.

The package of Insta360 Link looks like this.

The package contains the Insta360 Link main unit, USB Type-C cable, USB Type-C to USB Type-A conversion connector, 4 recognition markers, and explanatory documents.

The Insta360 Link is equipped with a gimbal-integrated 4K camera on the box-shaped base, and can track the subject without changing the position of the main unit.

The back of the base is equipped with a USB Type-C port.

Nothing is mounted on the left side.

Nothing on the right side.

There is a screw hole on the bottom for attaching a tripod or the like.

In addition, the bottom is equipped with a clip that opens up to 180 degrees and can be fixed by pinching it on the top of the PC monitor.

The dimensions are 63 mm × 35 mm × 45 mm, which is a small size that can be pinched with your fingers.

The actual weight is 105g.

It looks like this when attached to '

iMac with M1 '. The opening of the clip can be adjusted steplessly, so it can be attached to a variety of monitors.

I also tried it on my laptop, and the weight of the Insta360 Link didn't shake the screen.

The shooting performance of Insta360 Link is examined in detail in the following article.
