Ian Barton on Insta360 Go2
I have been trying to convince myself I don’t need one of these but caved in over Christmas.
I am now a convert.
It’s only got 32GB memory and video resolution maxes-out at 1440.
Results look as good as my 4K GoPro.
Image stabilization isn’t as good as GoPro, but in most cases it’s OK.
The app is versatile, but it takes some learning to get the best from it.
The camera is waterproof.
There are various accessories in the box…
Charging case (which also acts like a micro-tripod).
Magnet with a cord (so you can attach the camera on something like a shirt).
Easy Clip mount (you could attach to a peaked hat).
A pivot stand (you can attach to almost anything).
I have an embarrassing number of action cameras but the USP with the Go2 is I can carry it all the time in a pocket.
It’s much better than my phone’s camera.
…at last, Ted has a Nintendo Switch Lite coming, second-hand but very good. Sadly in yellow (eeek)! But we shall see how much I use it and what well-priced games I can find that I’ll be interested in playing. Kind of retro games – but not as retro as the Evercade! No doubt I’ll start with Mario!
Hardline on the hardware:
Flap your trap about an App:
Microsoft is buying troubled publisher Activision Blizzard for nearly $70 billion – But Call of Duty stays on PlayStation – Microsoft now own Sierra titles.
Chrome 100 Arrived! (Chrome Canary on Android, not Dev Channel on Chromebooks)
The latest Google service to bite the dust is the celebrity-focused Cameos – to be charitable, maybe it was best suited to lockdowns!
But there is this … https://www.cameo.com/
