DJI will almost certainly launch the DJI Osmo Pocket on November 28th during their “Because Life is Big” event at the Good Morning America Studios in New York City.
The DJI Osmo Pocket is a handheld gimbal camera with a 1/2.3 sensor that shoots 12MP stills and 4K @60fps video. DJI introduces the DJI Osmo Pocket as follows:
“The DJI OSMO Pocket is a handheld gimbal camera that combines mobility and stability in one device. It shoots sharp 12 MP still photos and stable video up to 4Kp60. the onboard touch screen displays a live feed from the camera and can control camera and gimbal movements. A mobile device connects to the DJI Mimo app where professional-quality videos can be created in Story Mode. Intelligent Modes such as ActiveTrack, Panorama, and Timelapse give you everything you need for the perfect shot.”
DroneDJ’s take on the DJI Osmo Pocket
It seems that DJI is heavily targetting the YouTube and selfie generation with the launch of the new DJI Osmo Pocket. The handheld camera gimbal will be released right before Christmas and the Holiday Shopping season. It is rumored to be priced at $399 and will compete head-on with the GoPro Hero 7, which is also priced at $399. There are some major differences between the two cameras that can be found in this article soon.
Most likely, orders can be placed at the DJI online store tomorrow starting at 4 pm EST.
