Insta360 launch two new action cameras with Leica lenses, and they're literally Ace!

You might think the end of November isn't the best time to announce a new product with so much attention on the Black Friday camera deals, but that hasn't deterred Insta360 from proudly planting its feet in the action camera space. Twice, in fact, if you count the similar-looking, but differently specified, Insta360 Ace and Ace Pro cameras as separate.

Firstly, though, what keeps them the same: the unique shell with a 2.4-inch horizontally folding touchscreen, which seems to owe its inspiration to Insta360's own popular Go 2, but is a first in an action camera. It isn't just for vlogging – it means that, for example, when clipped onto the handlebars the monitor can be pointed up to the rider.
