Introduction
DJI Osmo Pocket is the easiest way to record stabilized 4K video and fluidly moving time lapses without having to carry around a full-sized DSLR gimbal and bulky camera gear.

The design
The DJI Osmo Pocket is the camera gimbal you’ll be able to take anywhere and actually want to take anywhere thanks to its tiny size and superb video quality. Its 4K 60fps-capable camera and wand-shaped gimbal handle is no bigger than a ‘fun size’ candy bar.

Operation
The Osmo Pocket only has two buttons making stand alone operation very straightforward. The button on the right turns the Osmo Pocket on, touchscreen controls allow you to select different shooting modes (photo, video, slow-mo, timelapse, pano), recording resolution (4K or 1080p), access settings like fast follow, slow follow, FPV, or to recenter the camera, and review files. The button on the left with the red dot is how you start recording footage or shooting photos.
There is an option to connect a smartphone to the Osmo Pocket via a small adapter and shoot through the DJI Mimo app. In theory, shooting with the app gives users more control over the Osmo Pocket’s features; you get a larger view of what you are filming, can see a histogram, and get alerts if your footage is overexposed.

Video
The biggest draw of the Osmo Pocket is its ability to shoot stabilized 4K video footage at 30 or 60 fps. It can also shoot slow-motion 1080p at 120 fps. It’s similar to the quality of footage that you will get from one of DJI’s drones and the most recent smartphones.
The camera has an ISO range of 100-3200 and a lens with an aperture of F2, and for best results you are going to want to use the Osmo Pocket in sunny conditions.

Software
While most of the Osmo’s features are available without your phone, there are some that absolutely require you to connect the two. The companion app, DJI Mimo, is available for Android and iOS devices, and adds Story Mode to the Pocket.

Hardware and connectivity
It supports media up to 256GB in capacity (no card is included). There’s a USB-C port on the bottom for charging and data transfer to a computer.

Battery
The battery is internal and non-removable. It’s strong, though, managing a little bit better than two hours of 4K recording on a full charge. You can expect to fully charge it in about 75 minutes using a 10W adapter, and of course you can top it off on the go using a USB power bank.

Pros
Miniaturized gimbal stabilization
Records 4K video up to 60fps
Easy smartphone attachment
Amazing motion time lapses
Cons
Audio isn’t great in all situations
Not nearly as durable as a GoPro
Accessories are separate purchases

Conclusion
The DJI Osmo Pocket puts video stabilization in the palm of your hand, with a small camera that smooths out your footage thanks to a 3-axis gimbal. Visit Banggood.com to purchase one of this small but powerful device.
