DJI has been busy this week with all their firmware updates. Today the Chinese drone manufacturer released their latest firmware update for the popular DJI Osmo Pocket. The previous firmware update was only three weeks ago and improved sound quality, ActiveTrack, focus and white balance. This latest update promises to improve face detection, reduce focus pulsing, increase autofocus speed, add pro settings to the Osmo Pocket without the use of the DJI Mimo app, added Cine-Like color more to video mode and added an option to switch between AFC and AFS when using the Osmo Pocket without the Mimo app.

DJI Osmo Pocket Stories January 9

The DJI Osmo Pocket is a very nifty little camera that features a 3-axis gimbal that allows you to take great photos and 4K video. However, the super small form factor of the DJI Osmo Pocket means that certain features are missing and have to be added in the form of accessories. For instance, you can mount an external microphone to get better quality sound, but that requires a special accessory. Same for taking underwater photos, you need a special casing for that. While most of the ‘crucial’ accessories are still not available. DJI has started to offer some accessories in their online store.
