What's going on guys aldrin estacio here With flightpath.com now here i have the Dji action too and there's been a couple Things that have come out recently one Update on the camera itself and then I've also been changing some settings as I've been out there shooting a lot with This camera and i figured i'd just share With you guys a couple things i've been Noticing in the app that i've been Changing around a little bit more just To kind of maximize the usage of the Camera itself now if you do own the dji Action 2 you might notice that if you do Record for longer periods of time Especially at higher frame rates the Camera on the camera body will Definitely pick up some heat it'll be Pretty hot to the touch if you're Shooting for a longer period of time for Me this camera actually sits in a Different category i kind of call this Camera more of like a lifestyle Documentation camera versus a Traditional action camera and the main Reason why i say that is because when i Think of action cameras i normally think Of this even the action one is Probably still one of my favorite Cameras when you think about gopros These can really take a beating i will Normally leave this out somewhere where You know it's going to get dirt it'll be Near water and you don't really mind too

Much because you know that these things Can Pretty much get beat up or something Like this that doesn't have like a Detachable screen on it i will normally Just kind of keep this as my all-purpose Behind the scenes document a bunch of Things that i'm doing document different Povs and you know i'll normally just Shoot for 30 seconds a minute up to a Few minutes at a time so even though it Does get hot if you shoot for longer Periods there's definitely a couple Things you can do to help that on the Action too all right so one thing you Could do to extend your recording time Is you go into the settings so you do Swipe down and click on the settings Icon and when you swipe up you will get To An icon that says auto stop record Temperature now by default it's set to Standard but if you want to be able to Record a little bit longer you're Letting the camera know like hey i know It's going to be hotter Than normal but it's okay go ahead and Record a little bit longer even if it's Uh the temperature threshold is higher So if you click high it'll say this Operation will increase your camera unit Temperature and recording duration limit Switch to high threshold so hit confirm And then exit out of that that way you

Are able to record a little bit longer But just know that the temperature of The camera will get hotter the next Thing we'll talk about is this right Here the magnetic protection case from Dji so this actually serves as two Purposes one to protect the camera Itself and not even just to add Protection to it it's actually made of a Heat resistant polymer that when Installed on your camera is going to Increase your shooting time now to Install it is pretty simple it comes in Two pieces one for the bottom so if you Have the battery or the one with the Screen all you do is take the case drop It on the bottom first and then click it In just like that and then for the top Pretty self-explanatory make sure those Connection points are lined up at the Bottom push that in from the back And there you go now when you first sent This to me i was like how is like a case Gonna increase You know the the shooting time because i Would think that You putting a case on it would actually Make it hotter so right when i got it i Threw the case on the camera and i did Some side-by-side tests and i'm like Nothing's happening i'm getting the same Similar times sometimes it's more Sometimes it's less by a few seconds and I'm like this thing really isn't doing

Anything then i found out you have to do A firmware update on the camera itself For it to read that you have the Magnetic case on once you do the update You install it turn it on it'll then say Magnetic protective case installed once You have that installed and the heat Threshold turned to high it then Activates this heat solution on the case Then after i did that i was like is this Really going to work again by putting on A case but to be honest with you i did Another test and i was able to get a Couple more minutes of shooting time With the case on compared to with the Case off i did three different tests one Here in my studio and two outside one in The sun one in the shade what was Interesting is that when i did do these Tests in the studio i was able to get a Little under two minutes more shooting Time with the case on when i did it in The sun i was able to get about two Minutes more with the case on compared To with the case off it's kind of tricky On how the test results are because it's Not really like a battery it's not You're not testing a battery you're Testing a heat dispersion case which is Kind of tricky but honestly i didn't Think it would actually do anything but After installing it doing the firmware Update which is the key Then i was able to get a little bit more

Time shooting with the case on what's Nice that dji does offer this case now For free if you do purchase a dji action 2 and if you recently have purchased it On their website on best buy or an Amazon retailers i'll leave that Information as far as redeeming your Free case but i know that if you do Purchase one Any new one now you'll get the case Automatically and with this update You're now able to long press if you Wanted just to turn the camera on or Short press to get into the snapshot so Right now my snapshot is set to video so If i just press it once it'll Automatically start recording just like That i'm shooting video and i hit stop It'll automatically turn off now if i Just want to turn the camera on just to Go through the menus and i don't i don't Want to record i don't want to use Snapshot that you can now do a long Press just press and hold And there you go now the camera is on And it doesn't go automatically into Snapshot now the one tip i'll talk about Is just something i've experienced when Shooting with both modules hooked Together as well as an sd card i highly Recommend shooting to the sd card first And keeping your internal open as you're Shooting throughout the day and the Reason why i say that is because there

Was one time when i went out there Shooting and i would shoot everything to The internal memory on the camera itself First as the day went on i filled up the Internal and i'm like fine let me just Start shooting to the sd card now what i Might sound pretty normal there's a few Times where i wanted to disconnect this And just carry this around by itself as Well as put it on my chest put it on my Head on my head strap but then i wasn't Really able to do anything because the Internal was filled up already so my Suggestion if you do have the both units Try to shoot your sd card first because There's gonna be times where you wanna Shoot with this by itself and you need Battery and you also need storage on it To do so now next we'll talk about is Audio i like to vlog with these cameras A lot but the one thing is you might Know is that this only has one Microphone on the camera itself if you Want to have the best audio experience You're going to want to hook up your Bass to it because of the fact that There's three extra microphones on here Now if you want an even better audio Experience you can also hook up a Microphone just like this with a usbc Adapter simply plug it in to the side Turn it on and if it does properly read The microphone you'll see a little Microphone icon at the very top and if

You want an even better experience using A mic you can get something like the dji Mic system it comes with that usbc Adapter this is the receiver right there Just plugged it into the side power on The camera power on the receiver and Then of course turn on your microphone And now you're able to record directly To your wireless microphone and it'll go Right into the action too the one that's Great about these dji mics that they Come in a two pack so if you have two Talons two people that you want on Camera hook up both mics to it it'll Automatically get transmitted through Here and now you're able to get two Separate mics going into the your one Footage on your camera if you guys want A full in-depth video on the dji mic I'll leave that information above as Well as down below in the video Description also i just went on the dji Website it looks like they lowered their Price on the action 2 to 339 from 3.99 But of course i'll leave that Information down below in the video Description if you guys are interested In this camera as always if you guys got Some value from this video a big like be Much appreciated and if you guys want to See an in-depth video on the action 2 I'll leave the links down below in the Video description this is aldrin estacio With flightpath.com i'll see you guys in
