by Duey Guison  March 10, 2021

Insta360 wants to have a competitive edge in the action camera category with the Go 2, which is touted as the smallest stabilized action camera in the market.

Weighing just 27 grams, the Go 2 is so small that you can mount it practically anywhere with its included accessories. Inside the Go 2 is a 1/2.3-inch sensor that has a maximum resolution of 2560×1440 or 2000×2000. The Go 2 can shoot Full HD at up to 120FPS, and has a timelapse mode with intervals of 0.5, 1, 2, 5, 10, 30, 60, and 120 seconds. For file formats, the Go 2 uses INSP for 360-degree images, MP4 for videos, and DNG for photos.

While you don’t get 4K recording, Insta360 makes up for it by adding a 6-axis stabilizer inside the Go 2 to deliver stabilized footage. For the lens, you get a 11.24mm (35mm equivalent) f/2.2 lens with a 120-degree FoV that transforms into a 110-degree FoV in Action View. Hardened glass protects the front element from any damage and is replaceable. The Go 2 has an IPX8 rating, making it waterproof for up to 4 meters underwater.

Despiteits dimunitive size, the Go 2 is rated to shoot videos for up to 30 minutes and up to 150 minutes with the charging case. The latter has other functions: it also acts as a remote control, can be used as a handheld grip or pocket tripod, and even has a 1/4? socket for mounting it in a tripod or selfie stick.

Instead of a viewfinder, the Go 2’s companion app lets you preview your shots in real-time over WiFi, letting you adjust shooting settings on the fly. The app also comes with editing tools if you want to prep your footage for your social media channels.
