Hi,


I do a lot of videos with the Pocket 2, but I am now on my FIFTH wide angle lens for the Pocket 2!  The wide angle lens falls off whenever the Pocket 2 gets bumped, and because it is all black I typically can’t find it in the grass/dirt/etc.  I continue to have to buy new ones, which is getting expensive.



So, I would like to make a recommendation.  Please, please, please - either strengthen the magnets in the lens so it doesn’t fall off OR paint it bright yellow so I can find it when it is in the ground.



I hope you can feel my pain

Hello there john. I am sorry for the trouble this has caused and thank you for reaching out. This is not the experience we want you to have with your DJI Pocket 2. I will cascade these information to the designated DJI department for further attention. Again, I am sorry and thank you.

I use small bits of gaffers tape to secure the wide angle lens. After buying my second one, I was determined not to lose it again.

I’m on my third lens. Lost my first in less than a week. I now use a small piece of cord which attaches well to a third party lens (which is actually way better and cheaper than the original) so that if it falls it won’t go anywhere. Really bad design by Dji - need to do better unless this is a way to sell more lenses.

Aside from weak magnets, the adhesives that stick the magnet to the wide angle lens are also weak. the two magnets popped off when I decided to use it and I have only tested it at home.

Doesn't it add to the weight?
