Tiny, but also quite limited in terms of recording, was Insta360&s first actioncam alternative, the GO, which was released in 2019 and only recorded clips for a maximum of 30 seconds. Today, the GO 2 is introduced -- it&s insignificantly larger, measuring 52.9 x 23.6 x 20.7mm with a weight of just under 27g, and can now record for up to 30 minutes, but only in an unspecified FPV mode. With the efficient FlowState stabilization, clips up to 10 minutes long can be recorded (in 30fps), with a Basic stabilization up to 15min (50fps).
Insta360 GO 2
The Go 2 features a 1/2.3" image sensor and 35mm equivalent focal length optics of 11.24mm. Filming is possible in a maximum resolution of 2560x1440. In FullHD, 4x slow-motion can be created (via app export), and hyperlapses at up to 6x speed are also possible. (also in 1440p). The accompanying Insta360 app is also used for previewing via Wi-Fi, as well as to make changes to the settings. In addition, the app offers an editor to edit the clips.
The Go 2&s built-in memory includes 32GB (about 28GB of which is usable). The camera is waterproof to a depth of 4m (IPX8) and has a scratch-resistant tempered glass lens protector. It can be replaced with another lens protector or an ND filter by simply unscrewing it.

Included with the GO 2 is a charging cradle that either charges the camera in 30 minutes or can be used as an extra power source when the camera is operated in the cradle. Additionally, the GO 2&s charging cradle also functions as a remote control, tripod and handle for selfie shots. It has a ¼" threaded hole to attach a selfie stick or tripod, for example. The GO 2 can be remotely controlled from up to 10 meters via the charging cradle&s integrated Bluetooth function.
The small Insta360 GO 2 is available now for 319.99 euros (so it&s also more expensive than its predecessor) including a charging cradle, magnetic pendant, an Easy Clip, a rotating mount and a lens protector.
