I finally recieved Pocket 2.
It was shipped on Oct 31st and arrived on Nov 4th.

Right after recieved, I rushed out and shoot some test shots for about 2hrs.
And now I am sitting in front of the monitor and reviewing the footages.

My first impression is......

I am more puzzled than getting answers...
I don't want to jump the conclusion but...

(Left is Pocket 1 and Right is Pocket 2)

Anyone noticed you are limited to ISO 1600 in D-Cinelike? or is it a problem with just my device?

I don't think that was the answer that Tide was looking for...

That pocket 2 screen looks like it has a lot more detail and half the ISO.

or it's because the scene is much brighter in Pocket 1's screen.

You can see that at ISO 3200, Pocket 1 is +2.0 over exposed and...
at ISO 1600, Pocket 2 is +0.3 over exposed.

So far Pocket 1 has the choice to go upto ISO 3200 in D-Cinelike but Pocket 2 doesn't have that choice.
I definatly see some problem here.

Another agenda for Firmware update DJI!

Thank you for the confirmation.

So DJI limited D-Cinelike ISO.
Wonder why...

Even if it is more noisy, I like to have a choice to take brighter video.
Then I can try reduce the noise with denoise software.

The iso is probably limited sue to a higher dynamic range.

Congrats.  (first of all)

My personal thoughts would be not to go to 3200 at all.
But if you really have to, it might come in handy.
I'm not sure why there is a limit, but maybe D-cinelike is already rather noise (they seem to boost the signal in post to get a flat look) so maybe they wanted to prevent too grainy footage.

Not something that is hard coded probably, so if many users want it, who knows....
