DJI Launches an Incredible Insta360’s Gimbal Webcam

Insta360 is a popular trademark for 360 cameras and action cams, and it will be surprised us when it is launched as a dedicated webcam product today. The Insta360 Link is a 4K webcam with a 3-axis gimbal, and this basic model is from a DJI Pocket 2 without its body. There’s a 1/2-inch sensor inside that is larger than other brands. For example, the Logitech Brio only has a 1/4-inch sensor, and the more recent OBSBOT Tiny 4K has a 1/2.8-inch sensor, so the Link can offer much better accuracy and dynamic range. There are two noise-canceling microphones.

The Link can be hung on a monitor by using a built-in screen clip, or you can fit it to any stand with a standard 1/4-inch mount. The company added an AI algorithm to track your face, so the camera can pan around and up to 4x digital zoom to keep you centered in the frame. The AI supports gesture control for zooming in and out. For example, you can enable a whiteboard board, a bit like auto keystone correction on projectors, but for displaying your whiteboard instead. When users stop using the Link, this camera will be downwards within 10 seconds of inactivity for the sake of privacy.

The Link Controller offers some adjustments, including brightness, exposure, white balance, and more. Users can switch some resolutions as well, including 1080p and 720p go all the way to 60fps, instead of just 30fps at 4K. There are various shooting modes; the DeskView Mode allows you quickly toggle between your face and your tabletop, which should make your usual show-and-tell a bit more convenient. There are also Whiteboard Mode to help you track the whiteboard area, Portrait Mode helps you make a live stream in portrait orientation, and Overhead Mode can point your Link downwards to show your subject on the tablet.

The HDR supported the color range in case of strong backlight, though this is only available at 1080p or 720p resolution and capped at 30fps. The Insta360 Link is a great device that will support for your online meeting that can be used in macOS and Windows. This gimbal camera costs $300 and is available today via the company’s website.
