DJI’s new Pocket 2 brings big updates to a little camera

Published

on

DJI today announced the Pocket 2, an update to the Osmo Pocket. For those not familiar, it’s an adorable little handheld vlogging camera that features an impressive stabilization gimbal. This time around, DJI is increasing the sensor size and adding a wide range of functionality through a removable base plate.

The most notable spec upgrade is a larger sensor, going from 1/2.3 inches to 1/1.7. Moreover, the new lens has both a wider field of view — equivalent to 20mm on a full-frame sensor — and a brighter F1.8 lens. Combined, these should make for a significant improvement in low light imaging.

The camera will also support HDR video to better improve dynamic range, and offers up to 8x zoom thanks to the 64-megapixel sensor — up to 4x of that is ‘lossless’ when filming in 1080p. Likewise, autofocus has improved with both contrast detection and phase detection, which should hopefully be able to better track subjects.

As before, there are a variet of shooting modes, including a timelapses, hyperlapses, and panoramas for stills. You can also stream directly to Facebook or YouTube.

Video aside,he other big spec improvement is in the new “Matrix Stereo” microphones, which DJI claims is a “complete rework of the audio system” using four microphones placed to avoid being covered by your hands. There’s also an “audio zoom” feature that uses the multiple microphones to allow you to zone in on on specific region in your field of view. Audio quality was one of the complaints levied at the original, and it seems DJI took those comments to heart.

The aforementioned removable base plate allows you to attach a variety of accessories, including a handle with a wi-fi and Bluetooth module, a 3.5mm audio jack, a speaker, and a wireless microphone reciever.

The Osmo Pocket 2 will retail starting at $349, and goes on sale November 1.

Apple will replace AirPods Pro for free with faulty noise cancellation, static or crackling

Published

on

Today, exactly one year after Apple first launched the AirPods Pro — and thus the same day the very first AirPods Pro owners will see their one-year warranties expire — Apple has launched a repair program that offers free repairs or replacements for another whole year if your AirPods Pro experience issues with noise cancellation or static.

Specifically, Apple will fix:

Crackling or static sounds that increase in loud environments, with exercise or while talking on the phone

Active Noise Cancellation not working as expected, such as a loss of bass sound, or an increase in background sounds, such as street or airplane noise

Apple says only a “small percentage of AirPods Pro” are affected by the issues, but it apparently wasn’t just an early batch — Apple says affected units were manufactured “before October 2020,” meaning every AirPods Pro ever made might be eligible. That’s quite a recall if so. Apple says it will repair faulty AirPods Pro for two years after you first buy them.

We’ve heard complaints about degraded noise cancellation before, and at least one Verge editor has replaced their AirPods Pro under warranty. It’s nice to hear that Apple isn’t just cutting buyers off as soon as that warranty expires.
