So, pocket 1 had 140-minute battery life & this one has 2 hours and 20 minutes of battery life. DJI Osmo pocket 2 battery life is basically the same, so there is no battery life improvement. If DJI Osmo pocket 2 gives a little more battery life, then it would be fantastic.

A tiny speaker that allows you to listen back to your videos, and then it has a headphone/ microphone input, and the quarter-inch tripod mount is actually very useful. DJI Osmo pocket 2 feels better in the user’s hands, and it doesn’t stick out like the previous wireless module and stuff like that.
DJI Osmo pocket 2 focusing feature
First of all, DJI Osmo pocket 2 still doesn’t have manual focus; we have continuous auto focus, and we have single auto focus. But we need a manual focus control whenever we want to focus on the closest distance, just set it to infinity.
DJI Osmo Pocket white balance feature
When it comes to white balance, we only have all the custom white balance is kelvin (K) in pocket 2., but in the older, we have white balance, we don’t have the presets like sunny weather, cloudy weather & tungsten in DJI Osmo pocket 2. The interesting thing is we have those on pocket 1, and still in some resolutions and frame rates, some features get turned off, so if you want a high-quality video with tracking, you must pick pocket 1 or the other.

DJI Osmo pocket 2 conclusion
DJI Osmo Pocket 2 has 4k – 24fps. You can have a high-quality video with tracking, which works great, but you have to sacrifice one or the other for anything above. As a user, I feel like the active tracking needs a little improvement, but other than that, you can find DJI’s genius on everything else. DJI Osmo pocket 2 launches and shuts down a lot faster than its predecessor, but at the same time, when it turns off, the lens hides into its 3-axis gimbal; however, if you have a lens attached, pocket2 understands this and turns off accordingly. You can literally attach every accessory that comes in the combo kit to pocket two’s cover, and when it comes to low light performance, pretty impressive. As a user, I didn’t get the chance to test out the HDR video. A smart gimbal that fits into your pocket also memo app has AI editor when you want to edit your footage.
