DJI releases its Pocket 2 gimbal camera in a new color

DJI has released its Pocket 2 camera in a new color.

Meet DJI Pocket 2: Sunset White

The company launched its diminutive gimbal camera in 2019 before rolling out an updated version, the Pocket 2, last October.

This week, DJI announced the Pocket 2 Sunset White, offering an alternative color to the current black design and touting it as the perfect match for the brighter days of summer.

The black and white versions of the Pocket 2 are exactly the same, except when it comes to price.

The new Pocket 2 Sunset White cannot be bought as a stand-alone device. Instead, if you really want the camera in the new color, you’ll have to fork out $439 for the “Exclusive Combo” kit, which includes a bunch of accessories — all in white, of course. That’s $90 more than the black DJI Pocket 2, which for $349 gets you the same accessories except for a sling strap. With that in mind, the black Pocket 2 is clearly better value.

There’s also the Pocket 2 “Creator Combo” in black, which costs $499 and offers several more accessories than the white kit, such as a microphone windscreen and wide-angle lens converter.

DJI launched the 117-gram Pocket as a tiny, easy-to-carry video and stills camera, which, thanks to its three-axis gimbal, guarantees super-steady footage.

Able to capture up to 140 minutes of footage at 1080p (less when shooting 4K) on a single charge, the Pocket 2 boasts a larger sensor and vastly improved audio over its predecessor. It also offers a 93-degree field of view, wider than the 80 degrees of the original Pocket, which many selfie-shooting vloggers complained was too narrow.

Since the launch of the Pocket 2 last fall, DJI has rolled out various firmware updates to boost the device’s autofocus, HDR video, and subject-tracking capabilities.

The Pocket 2 Sunset White is available now via DJI’s website, though the company says that due to limited availability, each customer can only purchase one unit.

Despite various leaks already revealing a fair bit about DJI's incoming first-person-view drone — one of them comprising an unboxing of what appears to be the new flying machine — the company is proceeding as if no one knows anything yet.

A new video teaser, posted ahead of the drone's big (or not so big) reveal at 9 a.m. ET on Tuesday, March 2, confirms earlier reports that the device will offer 4K/60 frames-per-second video recording. The teaser also includes a few seconds of action footage, which we'd like to believe was captured by the camera on DJI's latest quadcopter. Watch it below.

When DJI announced the Mavic Mini last year, many people were astounded by the drone's ability to fly under the radar without Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) registration, thanks to its 249-gram weight. While it was praised for that, one of the biggest critiques from consumers was that it lacked 4K video recording -- topping out instead at 2.7K recording. Well, those concerns have been addressed by its successor, the DJI Mini 2, which packs that capability and many more while continuing to be able to fly under the radar at the same light weight.

This announcement is a bit of a surprise, given that DJI rarely comes out with successive drones this quickly. Take the DJI Spark, for example, which was released in 2017 and was the lightest drone in the company's portfolio -- until the release of the Mavic Mini last year. The standout feature with the Mini 2 is 4K video recording, a useful option for those who want a bit more elbow room when editing clips in post. Not only has the resolution been increased, but the bit rate also went from 40 Mbps previously to 100 Mbps with the Mini 2. However, its frame rate at 4K peaks at 30 frames per second (FPS).
