Video Quality and Specs

DJI is winning the war in here. A pocket-size camera with a battery life of 140 minutes that can shot 64MP photos and 4K video, think about it!

It has also a 3-axis gimble stabilization for photos and videos. Works stunningly great in low light condition and in a long-range shot. The gimble keeps the camera steady when you or the object you are shooting is moving fast.

Active Track 3.0 lets the user focus on a moving object or person. No matter where they will move the track will follow, keeping the focused object in the middle. Just tap on the screen and select the subject DJI Pocket 2 will do the rest.

There are 4 built-in microphones. The DJI Matrix Stereo can enhance the sound in different directions. Wherever you focus or face the camera in a direction, the sound will be enhanced in that direction, it’s a cool feature.

Editing and Sharing Videos like a pro

Most people can shoot video with this easy to follow DJI Pocket 2, but what about editing? It’s a big thing before you share the video with social media and YouTube.

You can connect the DJI Pocket 2 with the DJI Mimo app on your phone. The DJI Mimo App Requires iOS 10.0 and Android 7.0 or above. After that, all the videos can be edited or clipped, cropped, and enhanced by the built-in AI editor.

You do not need to be a moviemaker to create pro videos with this DJI Pocket 2. The super story mode is ready to do all the tasks. Even for time-lapse videos the super slim DJI Pocket 2 is a great choice.

Travelers Choice:

Most travelers or Vloggers who love to share their journey with the world need a compact light camera device that can shoot video and still picture in high quality. DJI Pocket 2 is just perfect for them.

I love the idea that you can keep it in your pocket and turn on within a second to capture the world in 4K. DJI Pocket 2 has improved the image sensor and with a larger sensor and wider lens from its OSMO predecessors. 

No matter where you go, you do not need to worry about the battery charge or complicated instrumental setup for photography or video shoot. Keep one DJI Pocket 2 in your pocket and you are ready to roll.
