DJI Matrix Stereo – Pocket 2 uses a 4-way array of microphones to capture beautiful surround sound audio
Four Array Microphone – DJI Pocket picks up beautiful stereo sound.
Audio Zoom – If you zoom in on a subject Pocket 2 automatically increases pickup from the mic facing that direction.
SoundTrack – DJI Pocket 2 can adjust the direction of audio enhancement based on the direction the camera is facing.
Directional Microphone Switching – puts you in control of what is being recorded. Maybe you’re filming away from you but want to provide narration of what the camera is recording. No problem. Just chose the microphone facing you and you’ll have perfect audio.
64MP Stills – 4K60fps Video – The larger camera sensor of the Pocket 2 means more beautiful images and video regardless of the time of day and you can toggle between 64MP and 16MP stills.
Active Track 3.0 – DJI keeps refining subject tracking, and ActiveTrack 3.0 can better detect adults, children, even pets and it’s smart programming means it can anticipate motion continuity when your subject moves behind an object.
Joystick Control – The multi-use Mini Control Stick lets you tilt, pan and zoom all with one thumb control.
Built-in Wireless Connectivity – No need to purchase a separate wireless module. Connect your smartphone or other wireless accessories (like the Wireless Mic) and access all of the features of the Pocket remotely.
8x Slow Motion – Our beta version of the original Osmo Pocket had 8x Slow Motion, but DJI never rolled it out to the masses. It’s back and fully available in the Pocket 2 at 1080p!
Hybrid AutoFocus 2.0 – This feature lets you autofocus more quickly and accurately on a subject. It makes a world of difference when you’re tracking and want clear footage between transitions.
