DJI has put out its most pocketable Osmo ever, given a suitable name as Osmo Pocket. This tiny three-axis gimbal measures just slightly over four inches tall and 116g weight, surprisingly having a color touchscreen and being able to capture 12-megapixel still images and 4K video at up to 60 frames per second at 100Mbps. When you turn it off, the gimbal tilts the camera on end so that it can easily slides into a pocket.
Thank DJI, Youtubers and other video influencers’ productivity can be highly improved. DJI says the Osmo Pocket will last for up to two hours shooting in 4K at a slightly lower frame rate of 30 fps. It also has dual microphones for recording audio, which make your video more vivid and attractive. With a size like a GoPro, can it replace your GoPro? It highly depends on whether it is waterproof and its water-resist level.
Is DJI Osmo Pocket waterproof?
Sorry to let you know, the Osmo Pocket isn’t waterproof in any way. However, DJI puts out a waterproof housing for it, which will allow the use of Osmo Pocket at depths of up to 60m for smooth underwater shots, detailed close-ups, and clear low-light detail. If you need, you can buy the waterproof housing separately.
Actually, it’s improper to consider DJI Osmo Pocket as a replacement to GoPro. It’s hard to imagine propping it up on your helmet or wearing it as part of a chest harness while you’re crushing it on the slopes. GoPro still has its advantage in some circumstances. Osmo Pocket, as a stabilized video camera, can track your face and follows you around. It’s definitely one of your best choices.
