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.

It seems like no other DJI product has received this many product updates in such a short time frame. Today, DJI releases yet another new Osmo Pocket firmware update. Version v01.06.00.30. This latest firmware update solves an issue that has to do with incorrect timestamps on photos and videos. It is a relatively small update but a necessary one.

The previous firmware update was released less than two weeks ago. In that update, DJI improved face tracking, focus pulsing and added an icon when you add an external microphone to the device.

While the DJI Osmo Pocket may not deliver the video quality professional videographers and filmmakers are after, especially in low light conditions, I still really like the gimbal-stabilized camera for its ease-of-use and pocketability. The Osmo Pocket is so easy to take with you and in the right conditions provides both good video quality and sound quality, that I always bring it with me.

Tiffen filter kits for DJI Osmo Pocket. Not too long ago, Chris published this massive 54-filter test for the DJI Mavic 2 Pro and Zoom drones. Among the various filters tested, were filters from the well-known company Tiffen and their filters performed very well. They have now released a filter set for the DJI Osmo Pocket. This should really appeal to anybody, who is using the Osmo Pocket for more serious video recording. The filter kit consists either of a three-filter kit of neutral density polarizer filters and a six-filter kit of neutral density and neutral density polarizers.
