Dji Pocket 2 is the must-have equipment for anyone who loves excursions. Versatile, lightweight and completely portable. Travel for many is equivalent to carrying a DSLR, its lenses, a tripod, maybe an action camera and more. Usually all of the above are accompanied by the corresponding carrying cases and many accessories. However, carrying the DSLR and all the extra accessories isn’t so convenient, especially during air travel, where extra space costs.
In this article we will refer to the new proposal of DJI that solves the above problems. The Dji Pocket 2 is an evolution of the Osmo Pocket model. But the Pocket 2 has capabilities for better video and photo quality and offers more features.
Below we will analyze the features and functions of the DJI Pocket 2 and how it can become the best travel companion and more.
Dji Pocket 2 Specs
The first and most important feature for those who travel and do not want to carry large and heavy gadgets is the dimensions and how light it is. More specifically it is 117 grams and its dimensions are 124.7 × 38.1 × 30 mm. In other words, it does not take up any space and is slightly smaller than a palm. Whether you have it in your hand, or in a pocket of your bag or your coat, it is ready to record your favourite moments.
It has a 1 / 1.7 inch sensor with the ability to take photos up to 64 megapixels and the ability to download RAW files. It also records videos in 4K, Ultra HD: 3840 × 2160 @ 24/25/30/48/50 / 60fps at 100 Mbps and slow motion Full HD videos at 120fps and 240 fps, while it also has an option for HDR video. Focal length and aperture have been increased from 26 mm and f / 2.0 to 20 mm and f / 1.8. An important feature is you can enjoy better image quality during the day and at night. Ideal for movie vlogs, videos and selfies.
The DJI Pocket 2 has a 3-axis gimbal, which ensures incredibly smooth shots. Whether you are running on a beach or taking a ride while driving over a potholed road, the shooting result will be smooth and stable. The motorized gimbal provides cinematic stabilization, which means you can get as creative as you want with your shots.

Favourite features for all creators. With timelapse you can convert hours to just a few seconds with intervals from 0.5 sec to 60 sec. Motionlapse is a moving timelapse from left to right or upside down with a smooth rotation of the camera. Finally there is the possibility of receiving hyperlapse in resolution from 1080 up to 4k.
In addition to the well-known 180-degree panorama, the Pocket 2 has the ability to capture a 3×3 panorama. In the 180º panorama it takes four consecutive photos from left to right and then sticks them together to get the result. In the 3×3 panorama, however, it takes 9 images, from left to right and from top to bottom, and sticks them together in a 5×7 image. This process is easy and fast and is done through the DJI Mimo application. You will not believe that such a small camera can take such a large shot. We also recommend the tripod for the 3×3 panorama for a more stable result.
The most beautiful moments in travel are the spontaneous ones. The last thing you want at that moment is to try to open your camera while wasting time. DJI Pocket 2 completely solves this problem with the Fast Wake function. Fast Wake allows you to start shooting immediately after turning on the device, with a deviation of only one second.
You no longer have to worry about the moving of the object you shot. With the active track function, the dji pocket 2 always makes sure to have the object in the frame and to follow its movements. This possibility also exists during the operation of the hyperlapse.
