Insta360 Go 2 is a mobile-first action cam that weighs only 27g

The Insta360 Go 2.

Insta360 just unveiled the world's smallest action camera, the Go 2. 

Weighing at just 27g, the Insta360 Go 2 comes with a new charging case (1,100mAh) which you can snap on for a recharge in 30 minutes. The case also allows the Go 2 to be used up to 150 minutes. In addition, the case doubles as a remote, a tripod, a handheld grip for shooting selfies, and a 1/4 mounting point to attach a selfie stick. 

The tiny form factor allows you to wear, clip or mount it almost anywhere. The Go 2 has a built-in magnet that pairs with the Magnet Pendant to wear it on your shirt. You also can clip it to your cap or headband with the Easy Clip.

In terms of image quality, the Go 2 has a 1/2.3” f/2.2 image sensor that can shoot 1440p videos. Coupled with its FlowState stabilisation and horizon-leveling algorithms, videos shot with the Go 2 will have minimal shake, bump and roll. The Go 2 has an ultra-wide field of view; you can choose to go up to 120-dgree for the "Ultra Wide" view or 110-degree "ActionView" for first-person perspectives.

Its IPX8 waterproof rating enables you to use the Go 2 down to 4 meters underwater. The scratch-proof, hardened glass Lens Guard also helps to keep the lens protected against wipeouts. Other specs include BLE 5.0, Wi-Fi 802.11a/b/g/n/ac, 32GB internal storage space, a 210mAh battery, and USB Type-C port.

The Go 2's companion app allows you to preview shots in real time over Wi-Fi and adjust settings on the go. There is also a full-featured editor for you to customise your footage. 

It is available today via Insta360.com worldwide for US$299.99. The retail package comes with the Go 2, Charge Case, Magnet Pendant, Easy Clip, Pivot Stand, and Lens Guard.
