Action Cameras vs Z6-II - Family Vacation

A family trip is tentatively coming up in a few months... in the past, I / we have used our cell phones to record video.

I'm thinking about getting an "action" camera, like a GoPro (9 or 10), but also looking at the DJI Pocket 2. And then also thinking about just using the Nikon Z6-II for the video. This is not the main camera for image making, and I tend to take along the Z6-II (last two trips since I got the Z6-II) as a spare / emergency camera. And then there's the phone camera itself, which does a decent job of record, however, there is no to smooth out the video while walking, driving, etc... I do not see using a phone gimbal, as it's relatively bulky and an extra item to pack. I do not want to go this route.

Anyone have any advice on any of the action cameras vs Z6-II?

Cheers
