Simon Skinner - 2 years ago

It weighs in at just 27g. It’s about the size of your thumb and boasts incredible stabilisation. The all-new Insta360 GO 2 arrives as the smallest action camera in the world.

The Insta360 GO 2’s super-light frame allows the user to shoot high-res, hands-free content. It’s waterproof and you’ll find replaceable protective lenses in the box to ensure it’s poised for any kind of action. Its tiny frame and feature-rich capabilities promise to achieve what other action cameras struggle with; capture its footage without getting in the way. 

The Insta360 GO 2 offers users a range of accessories in-the-box. You can attach it to yourself, your dog or even your car. It has strong magnets built-in magnet, which pairs with the Magnet Pendant so you can put the GO 2 onto your clothing. There’s an ‘Easy Clip’ that can attach the GO 2 to a hat or headband so you can get an easy POV shot. Just hit the front of the camera once and you’re off!

Go 2 App & Editor

The GO 2’s partner app will allow users to preview footage in real-time using WiFi. It’s also possible to modify settings on the go. The app also comes with a full editor to sharpen up content simply and quickly. You can even edit directly over WiFi without downloading the footage. Neat!

FlashCut 2.0. auto-edits your footage into a story, showcasing the ‘best’ moments, editing them in time to your chosen music. Users can pick from a selection of preset editing templates, which includes themes like sports, travel or pets, or just select your favourite shots and let FlashCut take care of the rest. Either way, you get a slick edit that’s ready to share instantly.

Wide Angle Shots

Although the GO 2’s lens is tiny, it will shoot super-wide. Yes, wide but not in 360 degrees. That’s perhaps the one thing that’s slightly misleading about the GO 2; unlike Insta360’s flagship devices, like the Insta360 ONE X2, it’s not a 360/VR camera. Not a crime, but worth clarifying.


Price and Availability

The all-new and very small Insta360 GO 2 is available now via Insta360’s website and comes in at £294.99 with a Charge Case, Magnet Pendant, Easy Clip, Pivot Stand and Lens Guard as standard.
