Using The Pocket 2 for TikTok & Instagram Reels

Is your phone getting too bulky and inefficient to use for recording on the go? It’s time to look towards something new and compact but does not comprise in quality. The savior you've been looking for is the Pocket 2! Packing a range of quality features in the size of your palm, this little pocket rocket will redefine the way you capture content for your TikTok and reels forever.

What is the Pocket 2?

To be brief, the DJI Pocket 2 is a pocket-sized action camera that redefines the way you capture content. It is designed for versatile creativity with its 3-axis stabilisation while also featuring a powerful 1/1.7” sensor capable of capturing stunning 4K footage and pixel-dense 64MP photos. Unique to the Action 2, it also incorporates the DJI Matrix Stereo for enhanced sound capture and visual detail capture with 8X digital zoom. While this camera is designed to be more compact than ever it does not compromise in quality with an abundance of advanced settings putting the camera in a category of its own.

Using the DJI Pocket 2 for Social Media Content Creation

Perfect for versatile shooting and on-the-go recording, the DJI Pocket 2 is the device you’d want for social media content creation. Let's run through all the features of the Pocket 2 so we can show you how it can be used for TikTok or reel creations.

Compact form  

The build of this device is so small it is perfect for carrying anywhere without taking up valuable bag space. In its name, the Pocket 2, if you haven't figured out already, even fits in the confined spaces of your pocket - how convenient! This feature gives you the possibility to bring it anywhere you’d like, giving you endless opportunities to capture any moment you want . To add on, the ‘fast wake’ feature further enhances your opportunities by enabling the camera to switch on in a single second. I would say that’s almost instantly. The compact design also fits snug in one hand, freeing up the other for capturing content in first person view.

Intelligent Shooting Modes  

If you struggle to come up with creative ways to film your next Tiktok or reel, worry not as the Pocket 2 also embeds Intelligent Shooting Modes which allows you to capture different styles of content with ease.

ActiveTrack 4.0

One of the awesome shooting modes I would highly recommend utilising is the ActiveTrack 3.0. Using this mode takes away the stress of having to manually focus and follow what your recording as the device automatically tracks your subject, keeps them in focus and in frame with the click of a button so they remain the star of the show the whole time. This mode works well for a lot of video types people would create for Tiktok or reels that involve recording themselves or moving objects or even animals.


The Pocket 2 features a Timelapse mode, with two extra sub modes, Motionlapse and Hyperlapse. These modes enable you to capture the passage of time in various ways. Whether you decide to stand in one position or move around, create the illusion of travelling through time and stand out from your fellow Tiktokers and reelers.

HD Panorama

For instances where your scenery expands your field of view and you’re left turning your head left and right to capture the moment, HD Panorama will do the work for you and capture the entirety of your view in one sweep. With a 180 degree of span this means you not only can capture extensive views but it can also be used for other purposes like to group selfies.

Matrix Stereo Recording   

Okay, now let's talk about audio. Unless you’ve already planned on putting a pre-made soundtrack over the top of your reel or TikTok, this one is a good one to be aware of. The Pocket 2 has four built-in microphones that are located in key positions on the device to improve audio capturing. This specific microphone placement along with the SoundTrack feature ensures your hand placement won’t block the mics and audio recording isn’t compromised with increased camera movement. As a content creator, this means you can freely use the device to your comfort without the added anxiety of hindering the quality of sound. Not to keep bragging, but if you’re using the Pocket 2 to vlog in a busy environment, the device is also capable of fading peripheral noise into the background and highlighting dialogue. Cool right?

Accessories to make recording easier  

The Pocket 2 furthermore comes compatible with a range of different accessories. But first, all users of the Pocket 2 should invest in the Care Refresh package offering damage repair and replacement in the situation that recording beautiful and fun moments take a turn for the worse. Then depending on what type of TikTok or reel you plan to construct, I would then recommend getting the other nifty accessories available to pair with your Pocket 2. From waterproof casing for underwater adventures to lens enhancers and attachment clips, there's bound to be something to maximise the full potential of utilising the Pocket 2 for content creation.

Edit and share  

Compatible with the DJI Mimo app, capturing, editing and sharing moments of your adventure has never been easier. By simply connecting your Pocket 2 to the app you can utilise the AI Editor to combine your clips with transitions and music to post straight to your socials. This is amazing for those who still can’t wrap their heads around how to edit on TikTok or Instagram. This quick and easy function additionally enables content creators to upload on the go which is perfect for most content creators.
