DJI have released a new gimbal camera, and this time it is pocket sized, aimed presumably at those that tote around GoPro and similar camcorders.
To quote DJI, “As the smallest 3-axis stabilized handheld camera DJI has ever designed, the compact and intelligent Osmo Pocket turns any moment into a cinematic memory.”
It will sell for AUD$599 so when compared to say a GoPro (or similar) on a gimbal, it is a bargain, especially if the quality is as good as DJI claim it to be.
DJI claim an accuracy of +/- 0.005% which is bloody impressive I have to say, plus a control speed of 120 degrees / second. Other tech specs include a 1 2/3″ sensor, 4K 60fps at 100Mbps video and 12Mp stills with an f/2.0 aperture video and a battery life of 140 minutes.
Functions include Nighshot, ActiveTrack, MotionLapse and 3 x 3 Panorama. A First Person view mode follows the gimbal’s orientation when filming, akin to GoPro’s Overcapture mode one presumes.
The Osmo Pocket also supports DJI Mimo, a dedicated app with editing tools allowing communal sharing of videos and stills. There are templates, filters, music and watermarks all on tap using DJI Mimo.
Accessories for the DJI Osmo pocket include a charging case, wireless module, extension rod (selfie stick for the uninitiated), waterproof case usable up to 60 metres, mounts filters, controller wheel, audio adaptor, cover and quick release base.
As it has only just been announced, we haven’t seen one as yet, but we have staked our claim for a review unit so hope to have one soon and we’ll fill in any blanks – so to speak.
It looks good though.
