Supported by a 4K camera, a larger sensor, and a wider lens, Pocket 2 delivers improved image quality in both photo and video modes compared to its predecessor. Creators can get up close with their subject using a brand new zoom feature. With an upgraded focus system, lock onto and track moving subjects faster and more accurately than ever before. The DJI Matrix Stereo, a new and improved audio system, provides crisp and clear sound recording, while pre-programmed shooting modes allow anyone to create visually appealing content with just a few taps.

The new camera also benefits from a modular design allowing to you attach lots of different accessories. It can be used as a stand-alone camera, connected to a phone, or remotely.

It also offers up to 8x zoom in 64MP mode and 4x lossless zoom in 1080p or 16MP. It also features four microphones for recording audio through DJI's Matrix Stereo system.

Other features include Pro Mode, Active Track 3.0, slow motion, timelapse, hyper-lapse, motion lapse, panoramas, live streaming, and story mode.
