Yes, it's easy to shoot video these days. Everyone has a smartphone, and even entry-level smartphones can record in at least Full HD 1080p. But if you're even semi-serious about kickstarting your YouTube and vlogging career, then you're most likely hunting for a proper camera setup. And I'm here to tell you that unless you're already a professional with very high-end technical needs for your videos, then the DJI Pocket 2 Creator Combo is almost impossible to beat.
The Pocket 2 camera itself is a major upgrade to the original Osmo Pocket. It still shoots up to 4K/60fps video, but it's got a larger image sensor (1/1.7-inch vs 1/2.3-inch), brighter lens (F1.8 vs F2.0), wider field-of-view (93° vs 80°) improved Hybrid 2.0 AF, HDR video, and 64MP photo support. It also has more mics (4 vs 2), higher zoom (up to 8x photo and 4x video) and better slow-mo (8x vs 4x).
But as Zach finds out, it's the Creator Combo bundle that truly steals the show. You get a wireless mic, a mini tripod, an ultra-wide angle lens (15mm equivalent, 110° fov) , a nifty joystick controller, and the Do-It-All Handle, which itself adds speaker, mic/headphone jack and Wi-Fi/BT capabilities to the Pocket 2.
