The DJI Osmo Pocket is one of the smallest 3-axis stabilised handheld cameras on the market. The light weight Osmo Pocket fits perfectly into one’s pocket and offers high performance technology that can be held comfortably. Using smallest 3-axis mechanical handheld gimbal gives real time precise adjusts for your movements, turning your handheld video experience into a dream. The Osmo Pocket breaks the mould by boldly embodying DJI modern technology.
The candy bar-sized device is as convenient as your smartphone.
Single-Handed Design provided by a non-slip and sweat proof handle offers comfortable grip, and the built-in touchscreen, and buttons let you choose modes and adjust settings easily.
Universal Port allows for the multifunctional expansion interface to connect your smartphone and accessories to the Osmo Pocket.
The micro-scale manufacturing process creates the smallest 3-axis gimbal,fine-tuned accuracy is delivered by the mechanical stabilization platform and brushless motor.
Noiseless Cooling System provided by the passive cooling solution that dissipates heat evenly prolonging its life and provides consistent performance.
The FPV mode follows the gimbal's orientation to film action shots with smooth results.Use Active-Track or Face-Track to follow the subject keeping it the centre of the picture.
The 3×3 Panorama captures breath-taking vistas and landscapes. Motion lapse and Time-lapse turns hours into seconds or gives smooth camera movement for dramatic effect.Night shoot automatically detects and illuminates low-lit scenes.
Not a device that will suit everyone but works well for people that need a dedicated device for video and photos but already have a camera or high end phone that lack stabilization.

What we like
DJI Osmo Pocket allows for total customization by enhances the photography experience with the intuitive functions. Pro mode lets you manually adjust camera parameters like exposure, ISO, and shutter speed. Capture RAW format photos and D-Cinelike videos, retaining rich detail and allowing more room for post-processing. The Story mode uses a combination of present shooting patterns and camera motions, filters and soundtracks give a unique finished video with easy editing.
What we don’t like
The durability of the Osmo Pocket is not the same as other action cameras, as it is not waterproof, you will have to use a separate housing. The screen is pretty small making it hard to see what is in focus, but this can be solved by attaching your smartphone. Having a built-in camera does not allow for lens or focal length change. Therefore, only giving a focal length of 26-28mm. If you plan on using this as a vlogging setup, you might want a wider frame to capture the surroundings behind you.
Should you buy it?
Yes, if you enjoy vlogging and need stable video this is the device for you. The OSMO Pocket offershigh performance pictures and lets you shoot smooth, cinematic footage from a small handheldgimbal. With access to several intelligent functions like Active Track, Motion lapse, and 3x3 Panorama, allow creativity with impressive effects that are impossible with smartphones.
