It seems that DJI is less focused on drones this year, likely because of all the suspicion around unmanned aircraft to be used as spying devices. Some of the latest products, the Chinese drone maker released have nothing to do with flying at all. They are the DJI RoboMaster S1, the DJI Osmo Action, and the DJI Osmo Pocket, for which DJI released new firmware today.

The DJI Osmo Action is off to a very good start. Many people seemed to doubt if DJI’s action camera could stand up to competition from GoPro’s Hero 7 black. However, many of the initial reviews show that the DJI Osmo Action is actually quite an amazing little action camera. The electronic image stabilization, RockSteady does an amazing job and, of course, having two display does make recording a lot easier. If you bought a DJI Osmo Action over the weekend, be sure to update it to DJI’s latest firmware before using. The new update brings some final touches and improvements to things such as the sound system, RockSteady, the WiFi connection, and improved Timelapse and HDR video quality.

DJI just released a firmware update for the DJI Osmo Pocket, version v01.07.00.20. The file size is about 99MB and brings improvements for the focus speed, reduced focus pulsing, added the Hyperlapse feature and volume adjustment for an external microphone. Sounds like a small update? Not really. We use the DJI Osmo Pocket for a lot of recordings and these improvements make a big difference. Yeah, a full frame DSLR will outperform the DJI Osmo Pocket in resolution and low light performance, but it will never outperform the Osmo Pocket when it comes to portability. This little guy goes anywhere!

After updating your drone with the new firmware you will also be able to the new Terrain Awareness Mode operation type.
