The DJI Pocket has to me one of the most innovative cameras to be launched in the last 10 years. Originally released as a DJI Osmo Pocket (opens in new tab), and updated more recently as the DJI Pocket 2 (opens in new tab) - this camera combines an action camera and a handheld gimbal into one device; and as it name suggests it fits in your pocket. The result is a device that is designed so it can be used to take super-smooth video for vlogging or for holiday videos without the need to buy selfie sticks (opens in new tab) or a separate gimbal.
Now DJI has announced that you can have a choice of color when you buy the Pocket 2. A new white version of the device is available immediately, which will sell alongside the original black version. Called Sunset White, the color "combines hues of pink and purple with crystal white just in time for the upcoming season", DJI announces. The device weights just 117g, and promises up to 140 minutes of footage from a single charge of the battery.(opens in new tab)
The Pocket 2 can shoot 4K footage, and the 20mm wide-angle lens is stabilized with a 3-axis motorized gimbal, which is attached to a grip that provides the controls and a touchscreen LCD (you can also attach your smartphone to get a bigger monitor if you prefer). It offers a frame rate of up to 60fps in 4K, but if you want to capture slomo you get the option of 240fps capture in 1080P high-def resolution. The sensor is a 64 megapixel affair, which uses pixel binning (opens in new tab) to create 16 megapixel stills.
Sold as a kit DJI Pocket 2 Sunset White Combo includes the Pocket 2, Mini Control Stick, Cover, Do-It-All Handle, Smartphone Adapters, Power Cable, Wrist Strap and a Sling Strap for accessibility for the price of $439 / £399 / AU$699.
