DJI’s ‘Pocket 2’ Is A 4K Handheld Gimbal Camera That Shoots 64MP Stills

DJI’s compact OSMO gimbal/camera system was somewhat innovative when it was released, giving aspiring shooters a way to carry a capable, mid-range camera for quick run-and-gun documentation. However, the niche was quickly filled by smartphones and devices that promised more intuitive interfacing. Fast forward a couple of years, and the brand has dropped the OSMO monicker for its newest “Pocket” variant.

After releasing the popular handheld platform, DJI saw promise in the adaptation (and evolution) of its Pocket line. As such, the Pocket 2 has usurped its predecessor in a variety of ways, including sensor size, improved audio recording, and HDR video capabilities, providing a moderately-specced platform for creative capture. At its heart, an enhanced 16-megapixel sensor pairs with the device’s motorized, three-axis stabilization system, ActiveTrack 3.0, and hybrid autofocus, ensuring that your subject remains in-frame at all times. In terms of resolution, it’s not half bad, either, boasting 4K/60 video capabilities and 64-megapixel stills that promise clear and sharp images, straight from the camera. Once everything is said and done, you can rely on the device’s in-suite AI Editor to piece your footage together, incorporating transitions and music to provide a post-worthy piece, without putting in any of the work. Head over to DJI’s website to pick up one of your own for $350.
