DJI’s Pocket 2 is the company’s latest handheld stabilized camera, delivering a 3-axis gimbal with 4K camera to your pocket, able to capture buttery smooth video or photos while on the move. With an upgraded sensor that takes 64MP pictures and 4K video with a 20mm f/1.8 lens, this high-quality camera is ready to capture anything you aim it at. There are four built-in microphones and it’s compatible with most smartphones, allowing for easy editing of shots before sharing on social media. Plus, since it’s pocket-sized and only weighs 116 grams, you can take it anywhere. The built-in battery lasts up to 140 minutes on a single charge, as well, letting you enjoy over two hours of recording before it needs to be plugged back in. Rated 4.6/5 stars.
