Insta360’s tiny new action cam is perfect for amateur thrillseekers


If you are thinking of becoming a content creator – be it on TikTok, YouTube, or elsewhere – you should know that it is extremely difficult to do it well. This is not to dissuade you from diving, but rather to say that you will need all the help you can get to make your job easier.

To that end, Insta360’s new Go 2 action camera is a great starting point for hobbyists. It’s a tiny little thing, about the size of your thumb, that goes anywhere, fits a variety of mounts and grips, and captures high-quality video in a bunch of modes. I tried it out for a few weeks and came away in awe of what one can do with this tiny camera.

Why would I choose this over a GoPro?

You should take this into account if you’re capturing short clips of your adventures and don’t want to deal with a ton of settings every time you shoot. The GoPro lineup is more complex, offering more features and capabilities for experienced creators – things like an audio jack for an external mic, support for 5K video on the latest model, and more.
