Insta360 has just 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.

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.

Always steady.

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 1⁄4” 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.

Available now.

*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.
