DJI sets a new standard today with its most powerful and portable stabilized mini camera – DJI Pocket 2. The second iteration of the highly popular Osmo Pocket, now called DJI Pocket 2, brings creative design and performance upgrades so that creators of all skillsets can easily capture and create amazing stories.
The DJI Pocket 2 packs full-scale performance in a highly portable and lightweight body, making it the perfect everyday camera to have in your pocket, bag, or purse. The Pocket 2 weighs just 117 grams and packs a larger and powerful 1/1.7” image sensor that captures images with improved quality. The sweeping 20mm f/1.8 lens provides a bright and wide cinematic look, perfect for all sorts of scenery or vlogging. Photographs can be captured in 16MP or 64MP images using a high-resolution mode, while a maximum video resolution of 4K/60fps at 100Mbps records in stunning details. HDR video has been added to make your videos pop with vivid colors, while its 3-axis gimbal makes footage smooth and appealing. The DJI Pocket 2 also offers up to 8x zoom using the 64-megapixel mode or 4x lossless zoom in 1080p or 16-megapixel mode so you can get closer to your subject without actually moving towards it. Autofocus has been redeveloped using a Hybrid 2.0 AF blend of phase and contrast detection to increase speed and accuracy. With an upgraded focus system, lock onto and track moving subjects faster and more accurately than ever before.
Just as image quality has been drastically improved, a complete rework of the audio system ensures footage sounds as great as it looks. The newly added DJI Matrix Stereo system consists of four microphones, strategically placed clear of a hand holding DJI Pocket 2, capturing an immersive audio experience that brings you back to the moment.
Directional Audio enhances sound recording from those microphones to pick up as much detail as possible, with SoundTrack adjusting the audio based on where the camera is facing, while Audio Zoom narrows the sound field when zooming the camera in. To further filter out unwanted background sounds, an optional wind noise reduction helps keep the audio clean in outdoor settings.
The DJI Pocket 2 is simple to use and easy to understand. A suite of upgraded modes makes getting up and filming those special moments seamless and quick. Design and user experience upgrades include Fast Wake to power Pocket 2 on instantly, Drop Aware to take preventative measures when it senses the gimbal falling, and Pause Recording to quickly pause video recording during operation. Intelligent pre-programmed modes include:
- Pro Mode
- ActiveTrack 3.0
- Slow Motion
- Timelapse, Hyperlapse, Motionlapse
- Story Mode
New accessories were created to ensure more creators can get the most out of the DJI Pocket 2. These accessories include a sleek charging case, wireless microphone set, waterproof housing, a smaller control wheel, extension rod, wide-angle lens, wireless module, and smartphone support system. A new modular design lets you remove the bottom portion of the handle and attach several accessories that expand the ways you can put the DJI Pocket to use, including a base to attach the Micro Tripod, and a Do-It-All Handle with a tripod base, Wi-Fi and Bluetooth module, speaker, 3.5mm audio jack, and wireless microphone receiver.
The DJI Pocket 2 with the Mini Control Stick and tripod mount will have a retail price of $349.00 while the DJI Pocket 2 Creator Combo which includes the Mini Control Stick, tripod mount, wide-angle lens, wireless microphone + windscreen, do-it-all handle, and Micro Tripod will retail for $499.
