A built-in stabilizer and a three-axis stabilizer are included in the second-generation DJI Pocket 2 all-in-one camera. The Osmo Pocket 2 is the successor to the original Osmo Pocket. The camera has a bigger sensor and a wider lens, as well as an improved autofocus system, more microphones, and the ability to take higher-quality photos and videos.
It’s simple to use and ideal for content creators and vloggers who don’t want to carry around a lot of gear.

At the helm of the DJI Pocket 2, a 3-axis gimbal sits atop a stick that houses the drone’s brains, battery, and that very welcome screen. Hold the base, frame your shot on the 1-inch display, and shoot for as long as the battery will allow on the 117g, very light, comfortable-to-hold device – no risk of hand fatigue here. Alternatively, you can use the tripod that comes with the Creator Combo pack to support it.
The DJI Pocket 2’s screen houses the mode and record buttons, as well as a new power button on the side. While the mode button can still turn the gimbal on, only the side-mounted power button can turn it off, which is useful for avoiding accidental shut-offs while cycling through modes.
Despite its 64MP sensor, the DJI Pocket 2 uses four-in-one pixel binning to capture photos with a resolution of 16MP. It can also capture 4K, 2.7K, and 1080p video at up to 60 frames per second, with support for 24, 25, 30, 48, and 50 frames per second.
These framerates, combined with the fact that DJI has included a Pro Mode with a flat color profile, indicate that the Pocket 2 is designed specifically for videographers. Slow-motion video is captured at FullHD resolution at up to 240p.
Facebookers and YouTubers who require wireless broadcasts will benefit from the new live streaming support. Other services, such as Twitch, can be streamed to thanks to RTMP support.
Timelapse, Motionlapse, and Hyperlapse, as well as panorama for photos and countdown, are some of the other modes we’ve seen before. A new story mode feature, as well as an HDR video capture feature promised in a future software update, stitches together clips into a montage video.
When it comes to combining stable video with pocketability, the DJI Pocket 2 is a best-in-class tool. As a result, it’s an obvious choice for anyone looking for a small pull-out camera for handheld video work.
Adding external audio to the mix is a breeze with the Creator Combo, and there’s also a handy ultrawide lens attachment that reduces quality but increases field of view.
