DJI have just released its smallest ever handheld gimbal. Named the Osmo Pocket, it’s the smallest 3-axis stabilized handheld camera that DJI has ever designed, weighing in at just 166g and with the capability to shoot 4K footage at 60fps.
Turn any video into a movie scene with the Osmo Pocket. Packed with numerous features, DJI’s smallest handheld gimbal snaps photos in stunning detail, thanks to a 1/2.3-inch sensor, 80° FOV, and f/2.0 aperture. It can also shoot 4K/60fps video at 100 Mbps and photos at 12 MP with a pixel size of 1.55 μm. So it’s serious.
Given its size, you’d be forgiven for thinking the Osmo Pocket would be complex to use. But thanks to its simple button configuration and a built-in touchscreen (ideal for single handed-operation), switching between modes and settings couldn’t be easier. The sandstone handle is also non-slip and sweat-proof.
As well as a ‘Universal Port’ which allows for additional accessories and future upgrades, there’s also a new DJI Mimo app. Connecting to the device via Bluetooth, the app offers features like ActiveTrack (for automatically following subjects) and Timelapse.
While we would have liked a one-inch sensor, it’s easy to forgive given the size of the device. That said, we do think a lack of a tripod mount and output for an external microphone is fairly unforgivable. Though, we should say you can get both with accessories.
The DJI Osmo Pocket gimbal is available now over at the DJI Website for £329.
