    UPDATE:Firmware bug causes 4k60 footage to revert to 1080P… HALF MY GRANDD CANYON FOOTAGE WAS SWITCHED TO 1080PREAD THE DJI FORUMS… IT IS JUNKI HATE THIS PRODUCT NOWI bought this camera for a trip to the Grand Canyon. Two years ago, I used my Note 4 on a gimbal and got good results, but it was overly cumbersome to hit the trail with this large gear… so I used the combo less than I thought I would.Fast forward to this years 30 mile hike, now I have an Osmo Pocket. I literally did NOT have enough time to play around with the OP, before the trip, so I had to rely on pc-less QA of my videos. I forced myself to use the OP in stand-alone mode without connecting my Note8. Luckily I had the latest firmware at the time that allowed PRO mode switching without tethering a phone. The results were mostly good! This camera is pretty easy to use. There is a walking bump like many show on social media… it is avoidable to an extent by “ninja walking” or using perhaps a selfie stick… hey, I’m on a 30 mile trek… I’m not ninja walking with a multi-day pack on!Personally, tethering a phone to the USB-C (or lightning) connector is a bit of a pain for “run-and-gun” shooting. Might as well just use an Osmo and your cell phone. I chose stand-alone mode for most of the trip.So, I set out to see the world through a postage-stamp sized screen, and at times, it disappointed, at others, it shined. I purchased a set of ND filters, fearing the colors would be all washed out during the day, but color issues only happened using in D-Cinelike in PRO mode. In fact, the cinelike colors are OK, not over-saturated, maybe a bit un-saturated to my taste.The ND filters are a waste IMHO. One of mine fell off within 4 hours of testing. I simply didn’t use another.The PRO mode might be best used while tethering. You can set WB and exposure (including auto for both) as well as manual shutter speed, but there’s something wrong with the colors if you don’t set PRO mode up correctly, and in changing light, you have to re-adjust it (That is normal with any manual mode, BTW). The tiny screen is almost useless in this regard, so stick to standard mode if un-tethered. PRO mode really helped at night, allowing me to set ISO to 1600 (grainy, but watchable)Standard mode gave me surprisingly good results in all day-lighting conditions, with or without ND filter attached. At night, it was kind of a miss, so switch to PRO mode for night time. I think the OP is supposed to detect night somehow, maybe this feature isn’t ready yet.I tried one Motionlapse. You need the phone tethered for set up only, you may disconnect and let the camera do it’s thing, which is a good thing. I used a 2m USB-C M-F extension cable for this. I was able to “jack in” occasionally to check up on the status. There are many things lacking in motionlapse, like variable shutter, more precise timing controls, and maybe a “preview sweep” before you commit… I found out that in the app, there is a “save original frames” feature in Motionlapse “pro-mode”, you can use something like Virtualdub on your PC to load the frames in for editing. Also, Pro mode frame recording gives you UHD-size, not the 1080P output of Motionlapse… Excellent option, DJI!Hand-Held timelapse does not work, always use a tripod.The panorama function is cool, just make sure to use the app to stitch before copying your SD to your workflow. It sounds like a pain, maybe it is, but I did not mind that extra step. The two panorama modes are fine. in no way is this a 360 degree camera, so, don’t expect a spherical panorama on this. Use a 360 camera for that.I wish this thing built in a joystick for pan and tilt. The screen kind of has a tilt control, it’s awful, and consistently, I got “you cannot perform this function while recording” errors came up when attempting to tilt, ruining my shot entirely. For this… you guessed it… add a cumbersome and expensive add on. Now the pan/tilt add on might be nice… there is no way to tuck the OP into it’s protective case with it on… WTF DJI? I won’t buy that.Focal distance is not as wide as a GoPro. I actually see it as a trade-off. Selfie mode seems a little tight, but is OK, while landscapes wish to be zoomed in a bit more! I like the choice here. I don’t remember the equivalent distance in mm off-hand, but I see it as more of a 35-40mm full-frame. Definitely a little wider than a 50mm portait. A small optical zoom of maybe 3x would be absolutely stunning, but make the device larger, and that’s OK with me! I suppose the F stop would be slower with zoom than the current bright F2.0 however…WIFI/BT… need an attachment… WTF again DJI. I won’t buy it.I did buy a 3rd party USB-C tripod adapter that works great for motionlapse on tripod and handheld slo-mo on selfie sticks. It also has the ability to charge the OP with a battery bank if desired. If you use a tripod, you can connect the OP to your phone via extension cable for remote control. Pretty neat.Video Qaulity: So, UHD at 100mbps sounds great, right? wrong. I compared the shots to my Panasonic ZS-100 (1″ sensor compact camera with zoom). The Panny crushes the OP in image quality at same resolution and bitrate, no comparing the two. However, the OP crushes the Panny in rolling shutter artifacts and image stabilization. It seems like a trade-off. Honestly, my Note8 has better video quality then the OP, but again, my phone lacks mechanical stabilization, and that is a deal-breaker. OP wins!Battery life: It’s OK. I shot an entire day with it and only connected a battery bank for my motionlapse, just in case. Android has this reverse-charging thing with USB, so I blame the OS, and not DJI for the Android issue. I can’t comment if Apple has this issue or not. It’s no big deal to me, but I do see how it would irritate some. Again, I put blame on Android for the charging issue that drains the OP battery. Use Wifi, and it solves the problem, unless you need to transfer files. You cannot remove the battery. This is a product for 1 year and then hack it, I suppose.Speaking of file transfer… I wish this thing incorporated a thumbnail cache. If you reconnect your phone with a hundred files on it, the app just sits there blank… no “loading” banner, nothing. You might think your connection is lost or something until magically, 4 minutes later, your media apears. If you lose connection for a split second (happens when directly tethered for me anyway) you have to re-cache the thumbnails. ARRGH what a PITA. File transfer is quick, at about 10 megabytes per second when tethered via USB-C.Story Mode… OK, this could be a great feature if you could use a laptop. You can’t. So… you better have a 512GB cell phone capacity to load a multi-day shoot into your phone to make a quick video for family and friends. There is a way to do a story mode as you capture, I’m confused either way, I just don’t know what I am doing here. I don’t think Story Mode is for me. I fell like my workflow should go into my i7 laptop with 1TB storage and let the laptop app do up a quick recap story for me, not shuffle files to my phone, where storage is more precious. I think shooting in story mode effectively takes the burden off your external device, but I see it infringing on manual video settings and other issues… I’ll leave this one to the Story Mode pro’s, I am just confused hahaha!The button taps for centering (2) and selfie (3) are intuitive and clever. I love that feature.I wish you could simply hold the record button to snap a photo, while tap to start/stop record. For now, you have to change modes, which while hiking, can be a little annoying, especially the tiny screen and big fingers, causing you to set the wrong mode.SLO-MO: This feature really shines on the OP. My biggest gripe is the auto-focus really sucks for a shot ranging from close to far and vice-versa. You can’t do a macro to wide pan for instance. In general terms, the slo-mo is neat, and i WISH it was in UHD! Why not? I bet the SOC could do it. Perhaps V2.0… Anyway, slow mo is fun and easy to do with great results in 1080P.60FPS UHD: This is niiiice. I used 30fps for some footage and it looked choppy on my 60Hz PC monitor. A lot of video seems to look jittery to me, but the 60FPS stuff all looks smooth. You definitely see compression artifacts, however. A larger sensor and possibly higher bitrate would alleviate this to a degree.V2.0: OK, my wish-list…1. PTZ Joystick and not a virtual screen control (yes, 3x optical zoom would be awesome, like the Osmo+)2. Larger screen and larger device (DJI could still make this pocket-able)3. Built in WiFi/BT4. Larger image sensor (not looking for 1″, but something larger will help)5. AI to soften the “walking bump” (If DJI included a 5k sensor, they could use portions to smooth the bumps, and still make it UHD)6. UHD Slow-Mo and Time/Motionlapse7. Built-in tripod screw mount!8. Waterproof housing accessory (not available yet)9. One switchable ND filter built-in? Yes please :)10. GEOTAGGING – Yes Please!Overall, I am pleased with this device. I say BRAVO to DJI for putting out a revolutionary product! I hope future firmware updates improve this little guy while DJI works on a bigger and better model. I will say that it is easily pocketable, and almost un-noticable to carry around a long day in a city. I really like it.

    The DJI Osmo Pocket is a really good camera and I do recommend it. It can shoot 4K60 and 1080p120 so it is high quality and has the ability to be slowed down in post. It also has its own flat/log profile which is really good for colour grading but the normal colours are good too. The menu is a bit complicated at first and the gimbal works a lot better with your phone attached. I got it with the extendable stick and that is great however I cannot connect it to my phone so I have ordered the wireless connector which will make it a lot better.The gimbal works well however there are still so bumps probably because it is so small. It also cannot do the “vortex” feature like most other gimbals can do which is a shame but not the most important feature you need.When I brought this I also considered getting a GoPro Hero 7 Black as they are around the same price. But after watching some reviews on each on YouTube I realized the Osmo was the camera for me as I already had a Go Pro Hero 5 Session which could do almost everything the Hero 7 could but the Hero 7 would have been smoother footage.The quality is much closer to a DSLR on the Osmo whereas GoPros quality is lost as the lens is so wide. The Osmo Pocket cannot replace the GoPro in anyway though (but the DJI Osmo Action can) as it is too delicate to be used when doing extreme sports. Also both the Osmo and the GoPros have really bad audio quality although you can get a mic jack for both cameras if you want to rig up a better mic.The reason I got the Osmo is because it is such a good b-camera to my Canon DSLR and as I am a Film student it is really useful to put in more unusual places without it looking too different to the main camera (a DSLR). The only thing I wish the Osmo could do better is having a shallow depth of field as you cannot get any bokeh like you could with DSLR. My friend did get a gimbal for our DSLRs and that can do the features that to Osmo cannot however you need a DSLR to use it and a good DSLR for video are £500+ and with a gimbal thats around £300/£400 so for the price the DJI Osmo Pocket is an outstanding camera.

    For the price and size I expected much, much less! The footage is great and seamlessly intercuts with footage shot with a much more expensive Lumix GX9. Functionality is great and the size and portability makes this an easy and convenient camera to carry everywhere. So far battery life is good and charging in reasonably swift.Drawbacks are the tiny touchscreen on the osmo is hard to operate accurately with large fingers (but is useable with care) and connecting to the MIMO app via the (separate) wifi base resolves this and offers much easier composition of the frame. (I have found that the MIMO app does drop connection quite often but that may be the smart phone side of things.)The main ‘drawback’ for me is that now need to use my GX9 & Ronin SC gimbal less often (after spending quite a bit on them)…Overall I’d would highly recommend this product as lightweight, portable, easy to use and producing great quality footage for the price.

    The media could not be loaded.  I like DJI products and was surprised by how disappointing the Pocket camera was. This low rating is based on the usefulness of the Pocket camera for my application. Since the gimbal will not roll past 45 degrees while maintaining orientation and stability, the camera will not work for me. I never got to the point of reviewing any other features, so the camera may be good for you but the limited Roll range eliminates it for my use. See that attached video.– ROLL LIMITED TO 45 DEGREES: My requirement for a gimbal is to Roll at least to 90 degrees and preferably to 180 degrees. See the attached graphic. The Pocket will only roll to 45 degrees then flip the orientation of the camera to portrait mode. What’s interesting is there is no mechanical stop at 45 degrees but there is at 90 degrees so why not allow the Roll to progress closer to the mechanical stop and even better put the stop at 270 degrees to achieve a full 180 degree Roll.Other issues: — NO MICRO USB: Why? DJI provides a USB C but no micro USB so all my phones will not attach. They should provide a micro USB interface adapter too! — WILL NOT WORK WITH TABLETS: The size of the tablet interferes with the gimbal. So only a standard size phone can be used when you want something attached to the pocket. — WON’T WORK WITH PHONE COVER/CASE: The adapter will not properly engage if a cover or case is on the phone. The case prevents the adapter from engaging completely. — INTRUSIVE ACTIVATION: You HAVE to log into their website and register the unit before it will activate. Why can’t I just use the camera out of the box?CONCLUSION: The Pocket would have been a wonderful solution for me if the stabilization operated out to 180 degrees but it only operates to 45 degrees so is unusable.

    First off the quality and footage this camera is capable of is fantastic. It also works better in low light in auto mode than most mid size cameras I’ve used let alone one this small. Overall though, after using it for a few months, I found it a little disappointing as a product.It has the capacity to do a lot, but using it can be a frustrating experience and if you want to get the very best footage out of the camera then you have to work at it each and every time, its not a grab it and go camera if you want the ‘cinematic footage’ promised in all the blurb.I knew when I bought it that it didn’t have Wi-Fi connectivity built in and that it didn’t have any way to mount it on a tripod. What I didn’t know was that the phone app is much better to use that the cameras menu system and that it allows the camera to do things that it can only do when connected to your phone and the app. If you have a case on your phone then you have to take it off to connect the camera – if only it had built in Wi-Fi.I also like to shoot time lapses and found the battery time really quite poor for this, you basically have to plug it into a power source if you want to shoot a time lapse over an hour.Using the camera on auto mode it does tend to wash out highlights sometimes, it also can be frustrating when you want to reposition the camera and you have to change modes to do so. Sound recording quality is okay, not great but as good as you’d get with a GoPro.I think if they had made this camera so it came with all the things they sell as after market add ons, the wi-fi connectivity, a tripod mount and a wheel/joystick to let you reposition the camera easily built into it then it would have been a much much better product. Even if it made it slightly larger.As it is the more I used the camera the more the limitations started to get annoying, that and having a very small camera but having to carry around an extra bag full of accessories for it. Its a good product at its base but it just feels as if it was either rushed to market or not fully thought through.Now its coming down in price its perhaps better value and if you just want a good quality, very small, video camera with good stabilisation to shoot short clips on then maybe this is a decent option.

    I got this camera cor taking with me on holidays. It is light, and literally fits in my pocket or bag and is easy to use. After watching a video on YouTube showing the settings I knew exactly what to do. The camera makes great videos and the photo setting is easy to use to. The stabiliser part could be better, but it is still great.

    The camera itself is worth to buy. But seems like you have to be aware of experiencing unwanted things being stuck behind the lens. I am not sure if it was a fault of the manufacturer or I have received a refurbished item without knowing that.Next day I went to Amazon Fresh to confirm the issue with a customer service assistant in person. They have accepted my return/refund request straight away. Be careful people!

    It’s an amazing device for what it is, but would be superb if it could hook in to USB as a media device. Even a capture card doesn’t help it. You need a lot of DYI steps/hardware to get it to stream as a webcam.

    The Positive: – The video quality on the OSMO is great – Its lightweight and easily portable – Has a strong case – Easy to useThe Negative: – The sound keeps on cutting out, so the audio is blank when we playback. This could be due to the device being faulty, because it works sometimes and not others, but I have no idea when it works and when it does not.I would be happy for a fully working replacement to be provided, but the return date has now passed and been less than 1 year since having the device.

    I really wanted to give this a 5 star rating. This camera is truly a remarkable bit of technology and will play a huge part in my video recording on travels. The 4K video and 3 axis stabilisation is just amazing. The other day we tried using this along side GoPro Hero 6 and there was just no comparison. I don’t doubt that the newer action cameras have good stabilisation now but i really don’t think you can match a mechanical gimbal like this. The beauty of this is that it also fits in your pocket like an action camera. I use this with the extension rod and its a great accessory for getting different angles and for controlling the camera angles etc.

    So the reason I marked this down a star is because DJI failed to include the wireless functions into the device meaning you have to pay and extortionate amount of money on add-ons which add bulk to your camera and extra things to carry. The scroll wheel accessory is also a lot of money for what it does. The mic adaptor, again should have just been included as part of the device. The camera struggles a bit with low light conditions because of the aperture.
    In summary:-
    Pros:
    – Silky smooth video footage
    – super detailed day video and pictures.
    – the automated panoramic pictures do a good job
    – lightweight and compact

    Cons:
    -Poor in low light
    -Expensive accessories

    I use this thing for all my immediate filming needs. Great for small content creators and it connects to the phone for adjustments as well as offloading footage. Only downside is the app for it is a little glitchy so I just pop out the SD card and put it into my computer and go with it or to the phone for quick work ideas.
