DJI Osmo Pocket – Miniature, Technology, Powerful Snapper, and More
DJI Osmo Pocket – DJI is one of the world’s most innovative companies regarding cameras and Osmo pockets. From your drone’s near-magical object tracking and obstacle avoidance to Osmo handhelds for capturing super smooth stabilized video.
What is Miniature DJI Osmo?
- 121.9 × 36.9 × 28.6 mm; 116g
- 1-inch touch screen viewfinder
- Modular connector
- Type C port
One of DJI’s most significant developments in recent years, on the drone side, has been its mechanical gimbal system, which stabilizes cameras for smooth shooting. DJI has made this system smaller and smaller to fit products like the Mavic Air. The camera installed on top of the Osmo Pocket looks like something you’d find on the front of one of DJI’s smaller drones, as does the sturdy mechanical gimbal that holds it in place. This component is attached to the main body of the Osmo Pocket.
However, from top to bottom, the Pocket is much shorter than an average smartphone in terms of size. It’s a good centimetre or more concise than the Google Pixel 3, for example, which isn’t the largest of devices.
It’s too less than half the width, making it incredibly portable and deserving of its “Pocket” name. We could comfortably put it in a jeans pocket and a smartphone without any problem. The entire handle, or case, is constructed of plastic with a textured, almost sand-like finish that makes it grippy and comfortable to hold while ensuring that it is lightweight and portable.
A small gift full of technology:
- ActiveTrack Object Tracking
- Automatic face tracking
- FPV mode
Besides having some of the best mechanical gimbals and drone hardware in its portfolio. Part of what has made DJI so successful is its advancements in auto-tracking features and various firing modes, all controlled by algorithms:
- With Osmo Pocket, some of them (along with a few newer ones) have been placed on the company’s smallest device yet.
- With face tracking, the camera can automatically lock a person’s face without any user intervention and automatically adjusts and moves the camera to keep the frame’s look.
- As long as there are good light and the subject in the frame, and the camera is not moving too fast, it will perform consistently.
- Joint with the automatic mechanical gimbal means you not only get smooth video, but the subject never leaves the shot.
- But it’s not as flawless in low-light situations – sometimes, this will make the feature have a hard time finding a face or accidentally pick up the folds of a T-shirt instead.
Is it easy to use?
- Simple two-button system.
- Touch screen gestures
- Smartphone app
Here are several ways to control the DJI Osmo Pocket, which are easy to master. A long press of the right button turns it on. To imprisonment a photo or start recording, press the left button (with the red dot). However, a double-tap of the right button re-centres and a triple tap flip the camera 180 degrees to face the other direction. Select which style you want to shoot in, and swipe left on the touchscreen. In addition, then scroll up and down to select from the list of options. A new swipe to the left will access the mode; for video, this allows you to choose the resolution and frame rate.
- 4K video up to 60fps
- 1 / 2.3-inch sensor
- 12MP frames
There was a compromise anywhere in video resolution and frame rate with a small camera. But this little video camera packs a punch and can shoot 4K video at up to 60 frames per second. You can record the following frame rates in 1080p and 4K resolutions:
- 24, 25, 30, 48, 50, 60 fps. If you want finer control over exposure, white balance, and other items, there’s a Pro mode available.
The DJI Osmo Pocket is a competent and versatile tool for recording stabilized videos and photos on the go.
- Its small size and impressive three-axis gimbal make it convenient to capture smooth images, while its battery lasts a reasonable amount of time between charges.
- However, it is not entirely perfect. We’d love to see optical zoom, better low-light performance, a larger screen on the back, and a sturdier / less complicated connector system for connecting accessories.
