THE HEADLINES: Over the past few weeks, I\u2019ve been testing out the\u00a0Nano S 360-degree camera\u00a0from Insta360. It\u2019s a cute little camera that clicks into your iPhone\u2019s Lightning port and takes 360-degree photos and videos. The camera itself is very compact and can easily be held in the palm of your hand or slipped into your pocket. I\u2019m fairly new to 360 cameras. I generally shoot using my Canon 7D DSLR or Fujifilm X-T10, and this is an entirely new experience altogether. Instead of concentrating on framing a particular shot, you can just click the shutter button and worry about framing later, so it\u2019s good if you\u2019re on the go and don\u2019t want to think too much. The most engaging experience the camera offers is that it places you in the center of your environment: it captures where you are and what a particular place looked like at a particular moment in time. Looking back at the photos I took, what really stands out are the pieces that perhaps you didn\u2019t notice or intend to capture. There are many small details that stand out \u2014 from the mundane receipts on the table to ground coffee beans and the patterns on wooden panels at the markets. It\u2019s special in its own way, because memories fog up over time, and having something like this while you\u2019re on holiday could literally bring you back to\u00a0that moment\u00a0when you were, for example, feeding pigeons in\u00a0Piazza San Marco. The camera also does a decent job of capturing your whole body, though it does have a fish-eye like distortion. The camera is simple to use \u2014 you just click it in and open the Insta360 Nano S app, which takes a couple of seconds to load. The app opens to the camera screen, where you can use your finger to move the viewfinder around in any direction to see what the 360 capture will look like.

Daytime shots came out fine, though the camera does struggle in low light conditions, especially when I took it out for a jaunt at night.
