DJI Osmo Pocket

 

The concept of gimbal stabilization is a simple one. Instead of using electronic methods (the means GoPro uses in its action cameras) or optical stabilization (the tech found in SLR lenses), a gimbal uses silent, brushless motors and gyroscopes to keep...

Easily portable. Crisp, stable 4K video at up to 60fps. Time-lapse and panoramic stitching options. Strong battery life.

Autofocus issues. So-so low-light performance. Requires phone or add-on control wheel for best experience. Promised accessories not yet on sale.

The DJI Osmo Pocket is an intriguing travel camera for vloggers and social media personalities, but some issues keep it from reaching its full potential.

DJI OSMO POCKET REVIEW: A TINY CAMERA THAT DOESN’T SKIMP ON THE STABILIZATION

 

DJI's handheld camera is much better suited for vlogging. Its long handle is designed to be held rather than strapped to the side of a helmet, and its gimbal won't even be able to move properly if you don't give the camera enough space. The camera...

4K video capture at 60 fps Easy to start shooting Motion-lapse is intuitive to use Clever controls for such a small device

Audio doesn’t match video quality Not rugged at all One-inch screen is really tiny

DJI’s Osmo Pocket does a great job of delivering on the capabilities of its form factor. It’s compact, easy to use, and I liked the quality of the video footage it produced (even if its audio falls short of its aspirations as a vlogging camera). But...

Review: DJI Osmo Pocket

 

That's the essence of the Osmo Pocket. It's the latest gadget in DJI's Osmo line of handheld gimbals—tri-axis devices that tilt and pan and pitch along with the person who is shooting video, which helps keep the captured footage relatively stable and...

Captures buttery smooth, 4K video on device, and also supports smartphone shooting. Amazingly pocketable. Face-tracking features are fun.

DJI Mimo app is buggy. No live-streaming capabilities. Plan on buying accessories if you really want to maximize the Pocket

The Osmo Pocket is really occupying a niche space between smartphones and GoPros and much bigger professional cameras—and thanks to software, image stabilization is getting quite good on those devices too. It’s hard to say if the Pocket will take the...

DJI Osmo Pocket is a supersmart, fully stabilized point-and-shoot camera

 

And yes, it's actually pocket-size.

DJI Osmo Pocket Camera Review: Supersmall, Superstable

 

The Osmo Pocket isn't the first all-in-one camera-and-gimbal device, but its small size and wealth of features make it a very intriguing product. It works incredibly well and has a great set of features that will make it an essential part of any...

Good-quality video and photos ; Gimbal lets you take very steady video ; Robust controls and features

Moving gimbal can get damaged

The DJI Osmo Pocket is a tiny camera that can fit in your pocket and take really smooth video, but it's not for everyone.

The DJI Osmo Pocket Feels Like the Camcorder of the Future

 

We didn't know what to think about the Osmo Pocket when DJI announced the device earlier this month. It's basically a tiny drone camera and three-axis gimbal on a stick. There's a little screen so you can see what you're filming and some smart features...

Fantastic image stabilization and neat shooting modes

DJI Osmo Pocket review: A pocket-sized powerhouse

 

Whether you're a pro or an amateur, the DJI Osmo Pocket could easily convince you to ditch your prosumer video equipment since it does so much so well – with no gear bag needed. It has some limitations, but its price and features make it a solid buy.

Literally pocket-sized ; Starts up fast ; Easy to use ; Lots of fun video/photo modes ; Works well with or without a smartphone

No tripod mount ; Usage limited without buying accessories ; Android app missing features ; Still photography features very limited

DJI Osmo Pocket Review: our verdict on whether or not DJI's tiny, gimbal-stabilised camera is a big upgrade on your smartphone or GoPro for shooting video.

Shoots smooth, stabilised video in all lighting conditions ; Incredibly compact and genuinely pocketable ; App offers lots of depth and versatility ; Great vlogging mode ; Good battery life for its size

Needs accessories to unlock its full potential ; Autofocus can occasionally be sluggish ; Audio quality is only average ; Not waterproof without a case ; No livestreaming

A charming, unique little camera that mostly overcomes the limitations of its tiny size to produce impressive, cinematic video

DJI Osmo Pocket review

 

Can this dinky drone cam beat your phone cam?

Super-smooth and ever-steady ; 4K footage looks delicious at 60fps ; Shooting modes make Hollywood shots a cinch

Fiddly to control without accessories ; Things gets toasty on the highest settings ; App can be pretty glitchy

Silky smooth shooting in a pint-sized package, the Osmo Pocket takes a novel niche and fills it well – if expensively

DJI Osmo Pocket review: Sensational stabilisation in the palm of your hand

 

Looking for a palm-sized stabilised camera? This pocket-friendly gimbal and camera combination from DJI is without compare for both video and stills.

Super smooth footage without the scale ; Portable design ; Easy to use ; Stabilised slow-mo is awesome ; Powerful and versatile tracking modes ; Battery life is great considering its size

Modular connectors are small and potentially easy to lose ; Phone physical connection not sturdy ; 1-inch screen is small and difficult to see clearly

The DJI Osmo Pocket is a very capable and versatile tool for shooting stabilised video and photos when on the go. Its tiny size and awesome three-axis gimbal make it so convenient to capture smooth footage, while its battery lasts a good amount of time...
