You can change how the front screen behaves when you power it off. In settings, choose “rotate screen to power off.” Set it to “now” for an immediate power-off when you rotate the screen. This is handy for filming in portrait mode. Change the direction the camera faces on startup. In settings, find “gimbal startup direction.” Set it to “backward” for vlogging, and the camera will face you when powered on. For vlogging, enable “face tracking selfie” in settings. Now, when you rotate the camera, it automatically starts face tracking, keeping you centered.
If you have the DJI Mic 2, use the link button to start and stop recording. Handy for tripod-mounted shots. The microphone can be used as a standalone field recorder. Power it on, press record, and later sync the audio with your video. When connected to the Pocket 3, the microphone has an audio meter. The visual indicator helps monitor audio levels.
Use the record button to power the unit on and off. Quick press when off powers on, press and hold when on powers off. Enable “screen rotate and capture” for quick capture. Rotate the screen to power on and start recording; rotate to power off and stop recording.
Double-tap on the screen to start active tracking. Double-tap on the subject, like the DJI Mic, and press the joystick to stop tracking. In Pro Mode, swipe from the right and choose “Focus Mode.” Try the product showcase mode for a soft focus effect, perfect for cinematic shots.
