DJI unveils OSMO Pocket, action camera with 3-axis stabilizing

Chinese maker DJI, specializing in recreational drones, has introduced the OSMO Pocket, a compact variant of its stabilized OSMO three-axis camera. The design was completely revised, however, the concept is still the same – a holding handle overhung by a camera. However, it is a lot more discreet with just 12 cm in height, contrary to 26 cm at the previous edition. The handle now contains a 1-inch touch screen which permits you to navigate the interface and preview pictures. OSMO Pocket should supply around two hours autonomous working with a single charge.

On the video side, the camera has a of 1/2.3 inches sensor (12 mPix) for shooting 60fps with 4K resolution. The rendering will to be similar to the one in Mavic Air. It can be operated independently, but may also be linked with a smartphone through the USB-C/Lightning port.

The OSMO Pocket contains many features, like the ActiveTrack which lets you concentrate on a subject and follow it, and FaceTrack that applies the identical principle, but focusing on a face. Timelapse or Panorama will also be present. Live streaming isn’t yet available, but it is expected to be provided soon via an update.

Small disappointment is that OSMO Pocket does not have a WiFi link, therefore a paid attachment has to be purchased to provide this feature.

The OSMO Pocket is available for pre-order 349 euro. Delivery is scheduled for early December.
