Insta360 announced a new accessory for the Insta360 Go 2, One RS, One R, One X2 or other cameras.   It’s a flexible pole called Monkey Tail Mount ($19) that can wrap around objects. Here’s the promo video.

The Monkey Tail can bend to almost any position and so far doesn’t seem to suffer from bending fatigue (when repeated bending can eventually break the metal).  The exterior is a thick rubber jacket with good friction against many surfaces.

It has a 1/4-20 male connector at one end and a 1/4-20 tripod hole at the other, which means you can combine more than one Monkey Tail to get a longer monkey tail if you need it.

With its flexibility, the Monkey Tail can mount your Insta360 Go 2 or action cam on a variety of surfaces for creative shots.  The downside is that the Go 2 doesn’t have a 1/4-20 tripod hole for the Monkey Tail.  Instead, you’ll need to use the Go 2 the charger case, which is not waterproof.  Alternatively, you can get a 1/4-20 to GoPro Mount to use one of the included Go 2 holders.

The Monkey Tail is around $19 and is available only direct from Insta360 at the moment.
