Osmo Pocket – Miniature, Technology, Powerful Snapper, and More

Osmo Pocket

DJI is one of the world’s most innovative companies when it comes to cameras and Osmo pocket. From your drone’s near-magical object tracking.

What is Miniature 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 been making 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.

From top to bottom, the Pocket is much shorter than a typical smartphone in terms of size. It’s a good centimeter or so more concise than the Google Pixel 3, for example, which itself 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 along with 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 to 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, that 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, all of 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). A double-tap of the right button re-centers, and a triple tap flips the camera 180 degrees to face the other direction.

To choose which mode you want to shoot in, swipe left on the touchscreen. And then scroll up and down to select from the list of options.

For configuration, a new swipe to the left will access the mode; for video, for example, this allows you to select the resolution and frame rate.

Powerful snapper:

  • 4K video up to 60fps
  • 1 / 2.3-inch sensor
  • 12MP frames

I’d guess there was a compromise somewhere in video resolution and frame rate with such 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.

First impressions

  • 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 so 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, and a larger screen on the back, plus a sturdier / less complicated connector system for connecting accessories.
