Insta360 today launched GO 2, a stabilized action camera that weighs in at just 27 grams — that’s less than an ounce.
Insta360 GO 2’s ultra-light body enables high-res, hands-free recording and lets creators effortlessly capture their perspectives — with none of the bulky, inconvenient accessories of a traditional action cam. Waterproofing and a replaceable protective lens ensure that it’s ready for every type of action.
GO 2’s unrivaled combination of size, stabilization and performance allow it to do what no other action camera can: Capture the action without ever getting in the way of it. It’s a cinematic sidekick that creators and athletes won’t even know is there.
Insta360 GO 2, complete with a multi-purpose Charge Case and a selection of mounting accessories, is available to order today via Insta360.com and select retailers worldwide.
Introducing Insta360 GO 2:
Wear it, clip it, mount it.
Insta360 GO 2 is the Spider-Man of cameras — it sticks to anything. Thanks to its tiny form factor and a host of in-the-box accessories, GO 2 can go where other action cams can’t, whether that be on you, your dog or your car.
Its powerful built-in magnet pairs with the Magnet Pendant so you can pop GO 2 right on your shirt. The Easy Clip attaches GO 2 to your hat or headband so you can get an effortless POV shot. Once GO 2 is in position, shooting a video is as easy as pressing the front of the camera once.
A mighty sensor.
Despite its size, GO 2 doesn’t skimp on power. GO 2 packs in the same high-performance hardware as other flagship action cams, while weighing 6x lighter.
A 1/2.3” image sensor, the standard for flagship action cams, enables GO 2 to capture crisp, clear and detailed ultra-wide angle shots. The resulting 1440p videos are guaranteed to stand out on your social feed.
No matter where you mount GO 2, Insta360’s signature FlowState stabilization and horizon leveling algorithms eliminate every shake, bump and roll.
With your hands freed up and FlowState stabilization keeping your shot steady, you can run, jump or ride with no holds barred. With FlowState, you can go out with nothing but a thumb-size camera, and come back with footage that looks like it was shot with a high-end gimbal.
Charge on the go.
GO 2’s Charge Case is a sidekick for your sidekick. Just snap GO 2 into the case and you’ll be charged up in half an hour. With the case, GO 2 can keep going for up to 150 minutes before needing a recharge at home. That's double the length of most action cams, at a fraction of the size.
Far more than a charger, GO 2’s case doubles as a remote, a tripod and a handheld grip for shooting selfies. It even has a ¼” mounting point ready to attach to a selfie stick.
Using the Charge Case’s onboard Bluetooth connection, you can control GO 2 from up to 10 meters (33ft) away. Just mount the camera wherever you like and then use the case to capture from a distance.
Ready for adventure.
Surfing, going for a dip or sunbathing seaside? Dunk GO 2 down to 4 meters (13ft) underwater without a worry. GO 2 is IPX8 waterproof straight out of the box.
Meanwhile, the scratch-proof, hardened-glass Lens Guard keeps GO 2’s lens protected from wipeouts. Pop it off and screw on a replacement at any time. Or swap it out for an ND filter to get balanced colors and contrast even on the brightest days.
An app that does it all.
GO 2’s companion app lets you preview your shot in real time over WiFi and adjust settings on the fly. Once you’re done shooting, the app offers a full-featured editor to perfect your clips.
If you’re in a rush, you don’t even need to download your footage to your phone before starting your edit—just connect and edit directly over WiFi. No cables needed.
Let AI edit for you.
Not up for a manual edit? Let AI edit for you with FlashCut 2.0. FlashCut 2.0 auto-edits your clips into a story, highlighting the best moments and editing them together on beat to music.
Choose from preset editing templates for themes like sports, travel or pets, or just select your favorite shots and let FlashCut take care of the rest. Either way, you get a slick edit that’s ready to share instantly.
Skinny camera. Wide angle.
GO 2’s lens might look small, but its ultra-wide field of view means you never have to worry about getting all of your surroundings in the shot.
Choose from four fields of view to get the perfect framing. Shooting an expansive landscape? Try the 120-degree “Ultra Wide” field of view. Hitting the trails on your bike? Try the 110-degree “ActionView” field of view, perfect for first-person perspectives.
Speed it up or slow it down.
Condense the action with a dynamic hyperlapse or highlight key moments in super slow-mo. It’s all as easy as a tap with GO 2. Shoot hyperlapses at up to 6x speed or slow things down to 4x slow-mo when you shoot at 120fps.
Setting up a stationary timelapse shot can be done in seconds too. Pop GO 2 into the Charge Case, fold out the tripod legs and record from any angle. Shooting at night? Use Nightlapse mode to get the interval and exposure time just right.
GO 2 comes standard with an included Charge Case, Magnet Pendant, Easy Clip, Pivot Stand and Lens Guard.

*Devices that do not meet the above requirements can still use the app to control GO 2, however, performance of some processor-intensive, AI-powered features may be sub-optimal. Phones equipped with Qualcomm SDM765 5G chips have poor hardware decoding capabilities and are not supported for use. The installation of the app requires a mobile phone with a 64-bit system.
As of now I have had to try 3 different mounts to get rid of the jello. Even after all the updates and what not, I was still getting jello. I have one mount still to try. Over all, the phone app is great, easy to use although most of it is an advertisement for their other products.
love the size, with fith most micros, cinewhoops and you dont evern feel mounted in 5inch hower it lacks of size and battery doesnt last to long, but hey!!! ots only 30 gr!!!
Insta360 Go2 Sport Camera
I really really really want to use this camera instead of GP8. But, given the current firmware, its not good for flip flops.
super small and light
(all the things the reviewers say)
short battery life (I can get about three packs with mobile phone review before I have to charge - I'm missing being able to throw in another battery)
must remove from drone to transfer files to another device (who would have thought that I missed SD cards)
must remove from drone to charge in case
the gyro randomly decides its orientation (meaning sometimes it thinks the ground is in in 9:16 format, and sometimes it thinks the ground is in 16:9) - you can keyframe in the mobile app, but the stabilization options don't allow you to pick a non-horizon "FPV Mode" (like in the desktop app). And, if you have a file that has this issue, you can't simply turn off stabilization in the desktop app, forcing you to make your exported file in a mobile device, then transfer to you video editing machine. That's a clunky workflow. (and yes, I've contacted Insta360 support, and no answer. I've also oriented the camera both vertical, upside down, and horizontal on the drone. I can't be sure to lock the orientation.) - This could potentially be fixed with a firmware update
This little camera is perfect for FPV. Just get a proper tpu mount and SEND IT! You won’t regret it.
