A vlogging camera in 2020 must film 4K, preferably in HDR, have impeccable image stabilization and be easy to manipulate. The new DJI Pocket 2 ticks all these features.
After they came to make the law in the field of drones, DJI created a series of stabilizers for cameras of any kind and type. The Pocket series is an extension of that type of gadget. In addition to a high-performance stabilizer or gimbal, you also enjoy a high-performance camera.
Brought to the second edition, the new DJI Osmo Pocket 2 uses a design very similar to the original version. Next, you have a high-resolution camera mounted on a gimbal, and that mechanism is attached to a handle with a small screen, but large enough to form a clear view of the immortalized content.
Inside, the camera uses a 1 / 1.7 inch and 64 megapixel sensor. Depending on what you want to do with the camera, you can use it for 16 or 64 megapixel photos with 4 or 8x zoom. The autofocus function also enjoyed a major upgrade.
DJI Pocket 2 can shoot 4K videos at 60 frames per second. As a confirmation of quality, you have a bitrate for filming of 100Mbps, for clean images, without compression artifacts, even at very high speed. You can shoot HDR, and again, the improved autofocus system will help you look good.
Progress has also been made on sound. Pocket 2 has four microphones for better stereo sound. If you zoom in, the microphones will focus on the same content you magnified. As a bonus, there are also slowmotion, timelapse, hyperlapse, motionlapse and panorama functions.
In addition, you can stream live on Facebook, YouTube or RTMP directly from the camera. The purchase price is $ 350, but there is also a $ 500 version with a thick set of accessories.
