Video sequences with a camera seeming to fly through tiny spaces isn’t a new idea. Certainly not when Laowa’s been using them to market its 24mm f/14 probe lens for the last several years. But do you really need to buy a $1,500 lens to get this type of shot? Well, it turns out that no, you don’t, not if you can shrink the camera itself down to the size you need, as Luke Edwin proves in this video.
Luke takes the recently released Insta360 GO 2 (review here) and attaches it to a 10ft long selfie stick, making a form of DIY slider, powered by a cordless drill (don’t worry, it all makes sense when you watch the video). The whole setup works simply because of the GO 2’s tiny size and the fact that it contains the same image sensor found in many flagship action cameras.
