    Brilliant Product - DJI does it again

    Posted

    I have been following DJI for sometime. Seeing the DJI Ronin and some of the early products, the company seemed to show potential. They really outdid themselves when they launched the Mavic Pro drone, a week after the launch of GoPro Karma, and totally killed a seemigly good product by stretching the limits of drone and camera technology. They then went one step further by making the DJI Spark drone. This is brilliant innovation from a less known Chinese company. The DJI Osmo Pocket is a smart product that basically combines DJI's existing technologies in an extremely attractive package. I got this camera the day it was released (purchased on Best Buy - wanted it immediately lol!) and it continues to impress me by the power it packs in such a tiny package. Apart from shooting true to life 4K videos you can take great pictures, effortless Pano shots (finally someone made taking a Pano seamless), Super wide angle 3x3 shots, Timelapse and most unique - Motionlapse. I sold my Sony FDR X3000 and GoPro Hero to get this camera and I don't miss them at all. This is not an action camera (may be if you really want to use it, you can) so if you are about mountain biking etc. a GoPro may still be better. But for everything else, this is THE BEST. Pros: -Unbelievably stable Videos in 4K -Motionlapse (no other camera of this size does that) -Seamless Pano wit 3x3 mode -Face Tracking and Object Tracking -Amazing App that makes uploading to social media a breeze -Recent updates with thoughtful touches like turning the gimbal in resting position for ease of keeping in case Cons: -Pictures look grainy in low light, still better than other cameras of this size -Facetrack does not turn on sometimes, needs switching off and on again -If a Panorama shot includes extremes of lighting on either side, pano shots appear with gradient lighting - looks stitched Edit (Adding below section after 20 days of use during an international travel trip): I would say now I have used the camera for a decent amount of time to know it well. It continues to impress me. In addition to pros mentioned above, I am blown away by the Mimo App and its video editor. I am a Premiere Pro user and this app makes video editing such an ease. I was able to quickly make a decent 10 min video of my 15 day trip using the DJI Mimo app within the 3 hours of my return flight to Los Angeles. The same job would take more than 12-15 hours on Premiere Pro (of course you get lot more options to use in Premiere Pro) but this is the best video editing phone app. I would recommend people use DJI Mimo app for video editing even if they don't have the Osmo Pocket. This is a brilliant device. Reading some of the reviews, I think most of users have bought this without having a USB C or Lightning connector - when product page clearly mentions that it does not work with micro USB (which in my opinion is a smart move since micro USB is a standard that is slowly being phased out) . Other reviews mention that app does not work - yes, it is a video processing app, it won't work with slower processor phones - upgrade your phone before you buy a $400 camera. DJI, being a company from China has outdone our American GoPro. We need more innovations like these - no matter where it is coming from.

    I decided to supplement my photography with video. Initially, I looked at the DJI Gimbal for my smartphone. However, the Osmo Pocket got my attention and after some consideration and reading reviews, I decided to spend the extra money and buy the Pocket. It turned out to be the right choice. The Pocket offers many of the benefits of a gimbal, but without the size and weight. There's a lot to learn about this device. You must register and activate it with DJI through the smartphone app before you can use it. That turned out to be a bit of a challenge. (It would be nice to have a Windows app for firmware upgrades and registration. You can download video from the Pocket to your PC with a USB-C cable.) The Lightning or USB-C connection is such that only the thinnest phone cases will allow it to make a connection. Once registered, you don't have to connect it to your phone, but it's the only way to do firmware upgrades. You can access the Pocket's controls via the tiny screen, but if you have fat fingers it will be a challenge. Better to use your phone. To do that you really need to purchase a device that can hold your phone and the Pocket at the same time to maintain the connection for maximum control. While you're at it, you should buy a handle or mini-tripod to hold the entire package. Yes, it's more money (less than $50, total), but it's the only way you can realistically and safely use the Pocket with your phone. You can use the Pocket alone if you prefer, of course. It's so small you can easily use it with one hand. The Pocket's video is quite good. Sound quality is just OK. DJI has been slow to release a microphone adapter for the USB-C port (which is also used to charge it.) I have an external mike, but the adapter won't be widely available until May 2019, which is annoying. It should have come out at the same time as the device. There are other accessories; I haven't felt the need to purchase any so far. It takes some practice to get the most out of the Pocket, so I recommend spending some time on YouTube. There are some very helpful videos there. As you can imagine, video takes a lot of memory space so I recommend a fast 128GB micro-SD card (and a fast one--it's video).

    I have been a fan of DJI from a long time and have owned a phantom 3 and spark.. my expectation was very high with this device. I picked up the device before leaving for my 3 weeks trip to Qatar and India in december 2018. I am not a pro videographer but enjoy taking and making films of my family vacations. Having said that here are the points I enjoyed vs. the ones I didn't. And finally deciding to return the device because at times I faced some issues which I don't think can be fixed by firmware only updates. Enjoyed the - -- Size - The size of this device is amazing. Very easy to carry and charge on the go. -- Various Video Modes - Tried all the video modes and enjoyed the 4k and motionlapse the most. Thumbs up to DJI for the motionlapse. -- presence of small screen in the device. Helps a lot when you are almost out of battery in your mobile phone. -- Stability. Which is why this device is primarily built and has capabilities to let people use this device over the mobile phone camera. -- panorama modes for pictures Didn't enjoy the - -- Inability to access pro mode without cell phone.This is a pain. Why? Think about a tourist visiting 10 different places in a day and vlogging in different light conditions in each of the place. It is time consuming and painful to change the settings each time by connecting the phone to the device. It sacrifices the "ease of use" tag attached to this device. -- Focus hunting or whatever terminology you use to define it is a BIG bug. My lot of videos of my Son were spoiled because of the inability of the device to keep the object in focus while tracking. -- Still pictures. The pictures taken with this device are not better than latest iphones which have varous portrait modes and depth sense.I know this is for video only but having the capability to take better pictures will be a plus. -- lack of tripod mount. This again can be solved with an attachment but buying attachment removes the sense of ease that comes with carrying this small integrated product. -- Low light vidoes. It is comparable to iphone 6 plus. not much information captured in low light. -- memory card slot. I have to carry a small pin to push the memory card in and out at times when needed. If you have nails big enough it might not be an issue. -- Inability to connect to a iphone with case. While traveling it becomes a pain. SO I ultimately decided to travel without iphone case.but design wise, this I think can be improved atleast for cases which are small in size. I think overall DJI did a good job as a first version of this device but I would rather wait till the next version with a better sensor comes out.

    I just picked this little guy up today (earlier than expected) after pre-ordering it back on the 7th. I've watched many of the review videos online from those that were lucky enough to get them before launch and I was intrigued. I own several DJI drones (Phantom 3 Professional, Mavic 2 Zoom and Spark) and an Osmo Mobile 2 so am very familiar with their consumer products and love all of them. Now we can add this to my 'love' list too! It didn't take long to activate/register it and set-up was a breeze (even with a firmware update). I'm using it with an iPhone 8 Plus. Regarding size, you can look at pictures and video all day long online, but you can't truly get a sense of it's size until you see it in person and actually hold it in your hand...simply amazing. I've been using it a little already and the gimbal is incredible! It comes with a wrist strap, the two adapters to plug it into your mini USB or Lightening port on your cell phone, a little (kind of) slip case and a charging cord (no power brick). Now anyone thinking about getting this should keep in mind I see there are a few things that a future firmware will most likely fix or improve, but remember this is the first of it's kind (for it's size) and we're all still learning. Some may rate this a 4 or even 3 star, but I don't think they're giving this thing the respect it deserves for what it is. I appreciate those online reviewers that pointed out that this has its own place in the market...it's not a full size DSLR and it's not a GoPro...those have their place and purpose too, but remember this is something special. If you're looking for something for those quick pics or videos that you would normally shoot with your phone...give this a try!

    This camera is pretty pricey but I honestly love it. It does exactly what it says, which is records stunning stabilized pictures/video and fits snuggly into your pocket. I honestly prefer to film things with this over my phone now as well. Once you get the hang of it, you can easily pull it out as fast as you could your phone. The picture quality if probably better as well, depending on the phone. The software on the Osmo Pocket is great too. ActiveTrack, Hyperlapses, FPV, etc. You'll get a feel for them all once you start using it. The camera itself feels really nice in ones hands. It doesn't feel cheap. It comes with a hard plastic case with a rubber strap over it to keep it from falling out. You just sorta plop it in the case and it sits nicely. Everything about it is really well made. My only gripe would be the amount of money you'll probably end up spending on accessories. The little wheel-thing feels like a must have and honestly should've been included with the camera. But alas, its not. The wheel/bluetooth stand is a quality of life thing. The camera works perfectly without them. There are a ton of third-party accessories out there as well, like bike mounts, care mounts (making the Osmo function as an expensive, yet stabilized dashcam), tripods, and a lot more. Mostly on Amazon and Ebay. All in all, this thing is versatile, and extremely intuitive to use. With the accessories, you can do a lot with the thing, and by itself its a great camera. If you do get it, buy a big microsd card for it, the last thing you want to do is worry about space on it.

    Compact, excellent stability, 4k60p, but not perfe

    Pros: 3-axis mechanical stability in a small slim format. If you own any of the DJi drones with integrated mechanically stabilized cameras you will feel right at home and notice the videos are extremely stable and look/feel like you are flying a drone (wide movements are smoothed out significantly). Small format: it fits in your pocket easily. I have a Sony 4k camcorder that is now large and bulky compared to this action cam and it only records 4k30p. This little Osmo shoots at 4k60p! Awesome. Linking it to my Note 8 for a large viewing screen is awesome also. Now the downside.... Cons: At 4k60p I got only about 40 minutes of record time before it shut off out of power. The sound record quality is about as good as you would expect from an action camera (low and muffled a little at any distance). Face tracking does not work at 4k60p (only 4k30p and lesser resolutions, should be stated clearly but let it be known that is the case). Hooking up to my phone I have to remove the protective case (USB-C connector is too short for a case over your phone). Small touch screen is too small for my vision so if you have a hard time reading close up you'll have a hard time effectively using the small screen to shoot great videos if you rely on clearly seeing details as you shoot. Photos in low light do not come out clear if any of the subjects move at all. I have only shot at 4k60p so I don't know how any of the other resolutions perform but know that 4k60p looks great. Besides all my cons I still recommend this camera for its stability, great 4k60p video shooting, and compactness.

    Too small for its own good

    I know, what you are thinking. While there are obvious benefits of this device to be small and pocketable, there was a lot of sacrifices made to go along with this. Being small, and light, it is difficult to keep your hand steady and you can see it in the footage. Specs are laughable for this camera, my Samsung note 9 is way better. There is a focus issue on this camera, even after the firmware update. With a small screen like this, you WILL miss some shots. Since this device is small, the battery is weak and short-lived. No wifi or other connectivity- the screen is small and can easily be bumped by your fingers and change the settings inadvertently. It is so small, it's not even ergonomical to hold, feels weird, occupying only half of your hand, and I have a small hand. Lastly, this thing gets hot. It's not going to burn your hand hot, but you'll know right away you are holding a very warn device in just a matter of a few seconds. Here some advice for DJI: I think you can make this a little bigger (and still pocketable) but add a bigger screen- better camera specs and firmware. Wireless and sharing capability is a must and most importantly better battery life. The focus needs to be fixed. Also, put a gimbal lock so the head does not flop when walking around while the device is off. Sorry, I am returning mine today- It does not beat my cell phone as a "walk-around" camera.

    If you're making videos and you don't want to lug a huge camera or a huge gimbal around, this is the perfect item for you. You have the ability to have high quality video and premium stability in such a small size. There are differences from using this and using a larger classic gimbal. If you're not targeting any thing in particular and you're up close to an item, there will be some shaky looking video, but once you're figured the target lock and using that for most of the video, the stability is very good. The scrolling on the screen can also be troublesome also. If it is too small to use for, you're basically forced to buy the extension, which really is the perfect extension. That being said, after you buy this item, this isn't the only item you need. I do recommend the expansion set that include the scroll wheel, and wireless connection to your phone. Battery is about 2-3 total hours of record time, if not more. It's noticeably short but charging is really a none issue. Space is great, but you have to be sure you're getting the right SD card to be able to record 4k if you need it. I got the SANDISK EXTREME PLUS word for word. I've grabbed 30gb of video on one day at my max. I kept it safe just incase i don't reload it, with a 128 gb.

    Great Idea, Poor Execution

    This is my 2nd time buying this camera, as the first time i bought it it had a-lot of issues and no real accessories (around Christmas 2018). Its stabilization is fantastic for the most part (you still get a slight bounce with each step) but getting it to focus on such a tiny screen or any change in light, totally throws off the sensor so i returned it. Few months go buy, and some acessories come out for it like the scroll wheel and wireless adaptor, and everyone insists the firmware updates fixed alot of issues, but even on the latest firmware, it just runs poorly to me. I still get a lot of pulse focusing and any change in light throws it off, it runs really hot when shooting in 4k to the point where its uncomfortable to hold it, no matter what i do it breaks up footage into 5 min sections, and the acessories dont always work with all the adaptor cases and mounts. Overall its a ok camera that has a great idea, but poor execution. The Wifi and scroll wheel should have been built in from the beginning not sold as accessories... The field of view should be wider especially for blogging, and it should have a removable battery. My advice, wait for the 2nd gen!

    Just picked mine up yesterday after preordering. I watched as Many youtube videos I could. This thing is so small but powerful. I think the greatest thing is that there was a firmware release available that listened to beta testers. I love the fact now that you can hit the function button next to the record button and if you hit it once it changes from video to photo, if you quick tap twice it centers the gimbal and if you quick tap 3 times it turns the camera to selfie mode. The 120fps 1080 shooting mode is so cool too which was also part of the new firmware release. The only negative I have noticed so far is that the device can get very warm but it could be because I was testing all of the functionality back to back to back. Just for the compact size, carrying case, ability to use while charging, I would recommend. Gone are my days of chasing my kids around taking video with my phone and getting motion sickness watching the replays of the video. This is a game changer!!!

    There are already many video youtube reviews out there. So i won't go into details of the features and everything. I will just speak to the practicality of these features vs. everyday life of a vlog and non-vlog person. If you vlog, this little pocket gimbal will make your life so much easier. Perfect smoothness and small size. Great 4k video quality, good microphone. For those who dont do vlogs and wanna use to capture every day life like your kids, etc. This is a great little addition to your cell phone to smooth our the shakiness which you would otherwise have if you only use a cell phone. This osmo pocket can also replace your camcorder as it videos in 4k and 30/60fps. One problem with this camera, there's no zoom! and its only 80 degrees FOV. so its not wide screen like go pro. and you are limited to just that view as you can zoom and you can widen or narrow your view. So for me, its not replacing my GoPro Hero 7 black in anyway. I need the wide view. But for those who wants their cell phone footage to be smoother, this is a good addition.

    Ok so the video quality is amazing but that's where it stops. It is very small so it is hard to use if your hands are mid to large. The screen is to small so controlling the gimbal is very difficult. The charge port is on the bottom so you can’t stand it up if plugged in. Oh and the active tracking only works in 1080p and not 4K video quality. It also works just ok if what you are tracking is moving slowish. Ski it keep following the trees and lifts when the ski go more than 10ft away. If u upgrade to the wheel, it only adjust the up down of camera gimble w a very very very small switch the changes it to left right movement?!? Why not make it control all movement like the really small screen does. Also the Bluetooth is very laggy. Takes a good 20sec to connect and disconnects very easy. It also take for ever to transfer the videos you take to the phone you have connected during which it times out and you have to open it back up over and over. All in all it is great video but I would wait for a Gen 2 to come out w hopefully all this addressed.

    Camera specs are about as good as a Iphone/s9 camera. Low light is around there. I have a s9+. In low light, they're similiar. S9+ appears brighter but loses detail because of noise reduction. I like the stabilizer because you can hold it upside down and in flash light mode (holding like a flash light with camera pointed forward). Alot of gymbals like zhiyun smooth Q cant do that. Tracking is pretty awesome but only usable at 30fps or lower. I do want to mention, as one of the reviewers said, you DO need usb-C to activate it. Out of the box it is "unactivated" and is useless until you download the mimo app and connect it with your phone. After it's been activated, you do no need a phone unless you want to use pro mode. At least this was how it was on 12/13/18. all in all... a very awesome device. My only real gripe would be that it is going to get quite expensive. it's 350$ + each accessories is 50$+. I feel they should have included the scroll wheel accessory... since there's no way to manually move the camera without connection to the phone. most stabilizers has a joystick.

    I bought this DJI osmo having gotten already the Osmo mobile gimbal, and I knew after, i wanted this item, because it's everything I wanted in reference to video recording at anytime and anywhere without having to bring in any bulky camera, or even a gopro camera that used to be the standard in small cameras. You're able to record in 4k and it stabilizes. For such a powerfully packed camera, you're paying for the technology to be able to bring the high quality camera in such a small package. There are many caveats for this camera. Being able to control the camera directions is not the easiest with the small screen to move it up and down. I recommend two things. 1. Buying the expansion set with the roller to control the direction better. 2. attach your osmo pocket to your phone where you can use the app to control. I highly recommend the expansion set as it gives you wifi to go the app wirelessly and the expansion controls. It's not perfect by itself, but having add ons makes this item truly amazing.

    This thing is incredible. I’ve owned GoPros before. I’ve always had the latest smartphone. I bought the Osmo Mobile 2 and even moment lenses for my phone. There’s always been something that’s kept me from using all of these though. I didn’t want to have to carry around the Osmo, or get accessories on the GoPro, or setup the Moment lenses with a case, so I ended up using the built in camera on my phone as is. It’s fine. It’s good for most things. But this really takes it to the next level. A 3 axis gimbal with a stunning 4K sensor on it in your POCKET?! It’s a game changer. I’ve been carrying it with me since I got it and it’s so easy to just film some cool slow-mo or a few fun moments with friends. I’m not a pro videographer. But this camera does what those other things don’t, give you an accessible camera that takes quality video. It’s a bit pricey, but it’s we’ll worth it in my opinion.

    When I first saw this item being hyped by YouTubers I thought it was amazing. Then after people had it for a few weeks, reviews weren't as glowing. But then there was a wave of other people saying...hey...its tiny and it does a pretty decent job. Well, I was sold on the item after the first reviews came in and didn't worry about any minute points that wouldn't matter to me. So I plunked down my dough at Best Buy and bought one. I have had it about a month or so now and I love it. Even just in the past month DJI has come out with a couple of firmware updates that have improved the experience even more. For example, it used to be you had to pair it with your smart phone in order to make a lot of the "pro" adjustments. Now all of those can be handled right on the touch screen. I have been very impressed with the footage and with the user experience. The quality if great. I'm loving mine. It was a good purchase and I look forward to including this camera as part of my everyday life.

    Design of the product is really good. Seems high quality in materials and build. Tracking works well it appears. The stabilization is really good (as it should be from a gimbal). The screen is too small to really see well during a bright outside day. I'm using this for quasi-vlogging, would love to see myself more clearly for framing. The focus just keeps hunting, I can't get it to work right no matter how much I tap on the screen (and I'm on the latest firmware). The camera lens seems a bit narrow in field of view for what I want to use it for (vlogging). I find myself having to extend my arm quite far to avoid cropping my head/face. Lastly for me is a weird one. This has no wireless, so I have to always plug into my phone to transfer footage. But 4K footage can only be transferred through a PC it seems. The wireless module is $49 which seems high to me. I still have to test how it will do in high vibration and high wind as that is where gimbals tend to start to hit their limits as well.

    The DJI Osmo Pocket is an amazing product considering the size and built in capability. I have owned many DJI products including several drones and cameras. As is my experience with DJI products, new products tend to be buggy initially on release. This is where the patience is needed. Those issues are usually resolved through the first few firmware releases. Pros: Amazing detail on pictures and videos, ok battery life (keep a USB battery pack handy for heavy usage). Small, easy to handle. Cons: Aforementioned bugs (my first camera bricked immediately after firmware update, wouldn't work at all). I do worry about how the unit would come out if an accidental drop. The unit has a 1" screen. I mean a 1" screen.......if your vision isn't 20/20, make sure you have your glasses. Overall, I find the product cutting edge. The gimble works very well. The gimble absorbs most movement, so even when walking or moving, the video appears very stable.

    This is a great idea and a fun peak into the future, however it’s just not worth the purchase yet in my opinion. There are still way to many software bugs. The auto focus is way to slow and the FOV is way to tight. Most of the video I captured over the holidays turned out blurry and out of focus. The audio is very scratchy due to the small size and your hand rubs near the mics, even when being cautious. The tiny screen is borderline useless, but I am glad it was included. I did update the firmware and optimize the settings before using it also. It needs to be attached to your phone to use 80% of its features, which at that point you might as well just shot the video with your iPhone XS or Galaxy S9. The only image quality you will lose is the better stabilization. Hopefully firmware updates fix most of these issues and then OSMO pocket 2 could be a real winner.

    I really thought I would love this product, but so far I have had an unpleasant experience. If I cannot get things resolved through DJI Product support, I will return the camera. Because I have a Samsung S7, I had to borrow my wife's Iphone to activate and download the update. She was not thrilled to add an app to her phone. Eventually, I got through the process. At one point I accidentally RESET the unit. It defaulted to Chinese language. A fairly quick trip on-line showed me how to get the language back to English. However, it appears that it also put the operating system back to the previous version, so the unit does not snap to the "storage position" when the camera is turned off and the firmware info in the camera shows a 1.something version. After buying the necessary adapter for my phone, I have tried to download and install the update again, but am not prompted that an update is available. I thought I would love this camera, but at this point, I do not.

      Hi GsmX2,

      We are sorry that you are not having a good experience with the Osmo Pocket. The unit is designed to work with newer phones that use either USB-C or Lightning plugs. We are working on a way to activate it using the DJI Assistant, but for now it needs a compatible phone. DJISupport
