TIMES SQUARE Revisit: DJI Pocket 2!

Happy NRP Phase 4 Kuala Lumpur! 

This is it! We made up our minds to invest in the DJI Pocket 2, which we hope to replace the hefty set-up that we have right now. The Lumix GX85 mounted atop the Zhiyun Crane M2 sitting on the Manfrotto PIXI Mini Tripod has product some awesome footage but is not practical especially when on holidays. 

The recent trip to Ipoh has amplified our need to scale down our equipment so that we can have a more enjoyable holiday not hampered by cumbersome gear.

We made several enquiries with several camera shops and Altech Camera came up trumps. They ultimately offered a "super combo", which basically is the DJI Pocket 2 Creator Combo plus a host of other innumerable accessories including third party power bank, chest trap, car windscreen holder and a host of other goodies too plentiful to list here. All for an additional RM200 on top of the price of the Creator Combo package.

With the acquisition of the DJI Pocket 2 we hope to continue producing content without the burden of lugging around heavy and cumbersome gear. If all goes well (weather permitting) we hope to make a trip soon to the East Coast of Malaysia where we hail from and showcase the many attractions and cuisine. Please stay tuned!

We then headed down to the lower ground floor and had lunch at Taste of Asia Food Court. It was here that I realised the Pocket 2 did not have a memory card inserted and therefore we could not immediately begin testing it.

After lunch we headed back up to Altech Camera to see if we could purchase the cheapest memory card, and Eric was more than happy to oblige.

We were soon testing our little pocket dynamite and were blown away at how smooth the footages were. We walked around Berjaya Times Square and soon found ourselves taking away fried chicken from 4Fingers, a firm favourite of our son

We then hailed a Grab car home, and marvelled at the steady shots taken from within a moving vehicle, something that we struggled constantly with our old setup.

Here's to better content in the future!

We do what we can to support local businesses, and it's always good to know that everyone here observes all related SOPs, it helps make us feel safer and reassured.

With the latest acquisition, our line-up has changed: 
• DJI Pocket 2 (primary walkabout camera)
• Panasonic Lumix DMC-GX85 (B-roll; mostly stills)
