DJI’s Osmo Pocket has the unique honour of being the smallest 4K camera with a three-axis mechanical gimbal currently on the market.
Designed for vloggers and YouTubers, it measures in at 12cm-long and weighs just 116g. The Osmo Pocket’s camera is a f/2.0 aperture affair with a 25.7mm focal length which can shoot shoot 4K/60fps video at 100 Mbps, slow motion video at 1080p/120fps 4x, and photos at 12 MP with a pixel size of 1.55 μm.
Many consumers would ask why buy one of these if an iPhone X or a Google Pixel can shoot video just fine. Well, the Osmo Pocket’s three-axis gimbal and software-assisted object tracking help the user create cinematic video effects which are just not possible on your trusty smartphone.
Osmo Pocket uses DJI’s smallest 3-axis mechanical handheld gimbal. In real time, it precisely adjusts for your movements, turning your handheld video of a golden sunset or your child’s first steps into a smooth, cinematic movie-like scene. A built-in touchscreen and buttons provide a quick, single-handed user experience.
DJI has made bold claims for the device; “The candy bar-sized device was made to be as convenient as your smartphone, wallet, and other daily essentials to offer everything you need for shake-free footage in any situation.”
“Our engineers developed a micro-scale manufacturing process to achieve the smallest 3-axis gimbal in DJI history. This miniaturized mechanical stabilization platform and brushless motor always deliver fine-tuned gimbal control accuracy.”
For quiet performance, the Osmo Pocket is equipped with a fanless design thanks to its passive cooling solution that dissipates heat evenly. The sandstone handle is non-slip and sweat-proof, offering comfortable grip.
Priced at an RRP of $349, the DJI Osmo Pocket will be available at iONE stores in the coming weeks. Customers can enquire at; www.ioneservice.com
