Insta360 GO 2 action camera’s magic trick is to be invisible

Action cameras are a dime a dozen these days but almost all of them share the same blocky and conspicuous designs of the very first generation of action cams. They do their job of recording critical footage, be it for sports, enjoyment, or even evidence, but they can also sometimes get in the way because of their bulk and heft. Insta360 made a name for itself with its discreet 360-degree cameras and, later on, its own line of action cameras.
