DJI Osmo Pocket gets new firmware! The very popular gimbal-stabilized pocket camera gets a new firmware update today. DJI just released their latest version of the firmware this morning. Among other things, it promises improved optimized face detection which should help with keeping your face in focus during vlogging for instance. DJI also added a tip prompt and display icon when connecting an external microphone. I will be updating my DJI Osmo Pocket later today and test the new features. I will update this post if I find any significant improvement.
