The Insta360 AcePro has had its second major firmware update this year, v1.0.51, and the new update has brought with it some significant improvements, not least to the Horizon Lock feature which now works on camera, and in terms of device connectivity.

I reviewed the AcePro at launch and found it to be a very useful device, albeit a bit different to the core contenders from DJI and GoPro for a slot on the best action cameras list. What makes it special is that it seems to put the needs of walk-and-talk vloggers and others ahead of going for sheer compactness, and so it's good to see that the firmware improvements further these goals.
