The Pocket 2 has a major Face and Object tracking issue. Yes, I have the latest firmware upgrade.
I just made a YouTube video about the Tracking issue and compared it to the Osmo Pocket (1). Watch also the conclusions at the end.
Check it out and I hope you guys have a fix for it  as I LOVE Pocket 1 and there is a lot of good things going for Pocket 2.

that's a known issue.
I bet DJI is working hard on making it better.

I wonder if your hat and dark glassed are confusing the P2 especially as the lens is wider.

I foound that when using high quality recording it is always better on OP.  Hopefully, I'm betting DJI could tweak some software settings and fix this on Pocket 2.

Should be easier to keep the tracking as the lens has a wider fov (for my own experience at school, i had project involving face tracking few years ago).
The problem of hats and glasses is long gone. There are techniques to find partially hidden faces. There are no excuses to not be able to make it work.
I can also see that the camera movements are crazy and not smooth.

I don't know about whether it's easy to implement well or not, but it's odd DJI didn't get it right on this device - so far - given that they seem to have been the world leader in face and object tracking in drones.  Maybe someone vital left the company.

Maybe, but then in lower video quality it is much better, and on other DJI devices that is not an issue. I think has to do with data processing... something that could be fixed via firmware update.

I agree. Yep, P2 moves around like crazy, trying to find the subject again. Looks very much like data processing issues.

Yep, if you look at some of their other products, like the Mavic line or even the Osmo Pocket, it seems they know what they are doing.... I just hope the processor is fast enough to process the data and a firmware update is all that is needed..... and that is on the way according to DJI Gamora
