Just a few days after the RS 2 and RSC 2 announcement, DJI are now rolling out the second-generation of the Osmo Pocket. The Pocket 2 features an upgraded 1.1/7″ 64 MP sensor capable of recording 4K UHD video up to 60fps at 100Mbps via a 20mm f1.8 lens. The camera also has advanced time-lapse functions that include selections for time-lapse, motion-lapse, and hyper-lapse.
Additionally, the newcomer offers a brand new zoom feature, an upgraded focus system as well as better audio capabilities. Just like its predecessor, the Pocket 2 can be used as a stand-alone stabilized device connected to your mobile device with a dedicated phone connector or operated remotely with wireless accessories.
The DJI Pocket 2 weighs just over 117g (4 ounces) and has an integrated battery that can be fully charged in less than 75 minutes while giving you a 2-hour runtime. The unit records media to SD cards with up to 256GB capacity.
It also has an improved Hybrid AF system along with ActiveTrack 3.0, which recognizes adults, children, and pets with greater accuracy, allowing the camera to follow automatically and keep them in frame as they move.
On the audio side, the Pocket 2 sports four microphones for better sound while incorporating a few enticing audio features. Directional Audio, for instance, will allow you to pick up sound from specific microphones, whereas SoundTrack will adjust the audio based on where the camera is facing. By using Audio Zoom, the device can narrow the sound field as you zoom in. DJI also added a wind noise reduction option.
Furthermore, the Pocket 2 comes with a protective cover, mini control stick, ¼”-20 tripod mount accessory, wrist strap, power cable, smartphone adapters (lightning and USB), and DJI sticker set.
The new modular design of the device lets you remove the bottom portion of the handle and attach several accessories such as a Micro Tripod, or a Wi-Fi module to connect to your smartphone remotely. Additionally, you can opt for Do-It-All Handle with a tripod base, Wi-Fi and Bluetooth module, speaker, 3.5mm audio jack, and wireless microphone receiver.
The Mimo app that gives you remote control over the Pocket 2 is also updated with an AI Editor that can recognize the highlights of your footage and combine them into a shareable video. There’s also a Batch Select function that enables you to select, delete, or download multiple items at once.
The Osmo Pocket 2 is expected to hit the market on November 1st while being offered in two kits. The basic one will set you back $349, whereas the Creator Combo that includes the mini control stick, tripod mount, wide-angle lens, wireless microphone, handle, and tripod is priced at $499.
