Steve, Having used a similar camera to yours (samsung gear360 ver 1) I can tell you there is a huge night and day difference to the insta360.

While there are some limitations to what the camera can do, the desktop software is really really good for editing and making video. It automatically stitches each camera and has an outstanding leveling program that stabilizes any and all movement. You would be surprised at how much fun it is to use. you just turn the camera on and record.

I see that the insta360 go 2 is on sale for $270. Is it worth it?

I hate to always qualify my answers, but over yes if the following criteria is important to you.



It falls under the same category as justifying getting a gopro it is just a lot smaller.

The Insta360 Go 2 is a really tiny camera that you can mount to almost anything, and yet still manages to capture high-quality 1440p stabilized video.

The Flowstate horizion leveling is outstanding. But for the best stabilization you still have to pass the clips through Insta360’s software. Its top FlowState stabilization doesn’t happen in-camera, but in the phone app or the Insta360 Studio app on your computer. based on my experience with the insta360 one x2 it is great. it would be a great choice to mount to your drone to get jello free video.

Don't buy it if...
You want to actively compose your shots
The Insta360 Go 2’s screen is a simple monochrome display. To actually see what you’re shooting before you capture it you need to use the phone app, which can act as a wireless display. This doesn’t offer the feel of a built-in screen. And it’s easy to shoot lop-sided footage without the preview when using the default video mode.

You want 4K video
The Insta360 Go 2’s maximum capture resolution is 1440p, a step below 4K. Real detail capture gets to a decent 4K action cam, but it gives you less scope for cropping.
