DJI releases the tiny 4K Osmo Pocket camera

Postby sidd finch » Sat Dec 01, 2018 2:19 pm

Wow pretty small form factor and $50 less than the GoPro 7.



The DJI Osmo Pocket’s camera has a 1/2.3- inch sensor that’s capable of shooting 4K video at up to 60 fps. As for shooting stills, the camera is said to shoot 12-megapixel pictures at 100 Mbps. The camera is attached to a three-axis gimbal and can last through up to two hours of 4K shooting — however you will have to shoot at a frame rate of 30 fps. DJI’s Osmo Pocket shoots 12-megapixel pictures at 100 Mbps On its back, there’s a one-inch touchscreen that controls that camera and monitors the live feed. Additionally, the stabilizer has smartphone support with a new app called DJI Mimo. Plus, there are dual microphones for recording audio.

I agree Bob.

From what I have read, the pocket is designed to compete with the GoPro 7. Both have the same chip but each camera has a few tweaks to make life interesting. The 3 axis gimbal is a pretty cool idea and I like that it can do timelapse pans. The GoPro seems to have pretty radical electronic image stabilization but I have read that low light is a shortcoming for the EIS on the GoPro. Also the underwater approach to having a case vs ready to go in the water.

Looking forward to seeing more actual user reviews.

That is very nice, although someone on Amazon asked if it was waterproof, and the answer from the seller was no, that there will be a waterproof case available in the near future.

In one of the promo clips DJI shows the camera underwater with a case on it.

I don't like the fact that the control wheel is another $59.00. Some of the accessories I saw on DJI's website are kind of $$. You could easily spend another $200 to get the basic stuff.

On the Plus side I like that it can do Panoramic time lapses and the the FOV does not have that fish-eye look. On the downside I do not like the audio quality and the fact that there is no connector for a stand because the mic input is on the bottom of the unit. From what I have seen online I think that the GoPro 7 has better color.
