This is so much fun. Ive taken this on a couple of vacations and looking forward to using more. It can be used solo or with and iphone. If you use the iphone you get more options but you will have to remove any case your phone has because this thing is made to fit exactly. Also if you want to do some editing from your phone you will have to go to the app store and download the insta360 nano app. The only bad part is you may want to use a selfie stick because on how the camera catches your hand holding it.
