Sample recordings on the DJI Pocket 2 using several external microphones -lapel, handheld, directional (both wired and via the DJI Transmitter). What works and what doesn’t. High output / sensitivity mics are required for best results. Detailed examples and sound graphs.


SEE ALSO PART 1 : how to connect external mics which are not otherwise recognised by the DJI Do-it-all handle.


ALL WIRING CONNECTIONS AND USE OF ADAPTER CABLES AT YOUR OWN RISK. THIS VIDEO IS BASED ON MY EXERIENCE WITH MY POCKET 2 – THERE IS ALWAYS THE POSSIBILITY THAT MY UNIT IS FAULTY. IT IS STRANGE THAT A TRS MIC ONLY RECORDS ON ONE CHANNEL WHEN PLUGGED IN TO THE HANDLE.

Useful mics that work well
Rode VideoMic Pro+ (no hiss and plenty of output for Pocket2) Primo 172 (now 272 capsule) and available
as Clippy 272 (TRS) Mic from micbooster.com


NOTE : The Rode Wireless Go will also work with its transmitter plugged in to the Do-it-all handle since the Rode receiver has higher output level switching. All 2.4 GHz systems are susceptible to interference.
