DJI’s newest product, Osmo Pocket, is the smallest handheld stabilizer that the drone / camera company has made. It takes a lot of things that the Chinese company has done really well and puts them in an impressive little form factor. It is supposed to offer drunken-like materials in a size comparable to a GoPro (although it can not take the same kind of wear). The Osmo pocket costs $ 349 and is shipped on December 15th.
The Osmo pocket is only four inches long. When you turn off, the gimbale releases the camera at the end so that the entire system can fit into a small case, which easily slips into the pocket ̵
1; hence the name.
Instead of using the big Zenmuse camera found on the original Osmo or a smartphone like the camera like Osmo Mobile, the pocket lends more from the camera and gymnastics to the company’s smaller drones , like Mavic Air.
The camera that sits on the three-axes gimbal uses a 1 / 2.3-inch sensor and can capture 4K images at up to 60 frames per second at 100 Mbps. DJI says that the Osmo pocket lasts up to two hours in 4K at a slightly lower frame rate of 30 frames / sec. The Osmo pocket also features 12 megapixel proton and it has dual microphones for recording audio.
There is a small one-inch touch screen on the Osmo pocket where users can frame their shots or switch through settings. It’s a bit difficult to take care of the arm length, but users can also connect their iPhone or Android phone (provided it has a USB-C port) to a modular port on the side of the Osmo pocket for a larger display and more granular controls through the company’s new app. While it may be smaller than previous DJI stabilizers, Osmo Pocket still offers some of the company’s advanced shooting modes, such as object tracking, face tracking, time lag and auto panorama.
DJI is also planning to sell a number of accessories for the Osmo pocket. There is a mount that allows users to attach things to GoPro style, as well as a Wi-Fi controller, a set of ND filters, a waterproof case, an extension bar and a 3.5mm adapter for external microphones. Also soon comes a bag with a battery that can charge the Osmo pocket when stored.
