DJI Announces the Osmo Pocket: A 3-Axis Stabilized Handheld 4K Camera

Dave LeClair 29-11-2018

DJI, the company best known for its solid line of drones, has just released a really solid looking gimbal-stabilized camera called the Osmo Pocket.


The tiny camera is available for pre-order right now, and it’s scheduled to ship in December, so you won’t have to wait too long to get your hands on one.

DJI Osmo Pocket Features

The Osmo Pocket’s main selling point is its size. It barely tips the scale at only 116g, so you can carry it around extremely comfortably. It’s only 121.9mm tall, 28.6mm wide, and 36.9mm deep.

In spite of the tiny size, the camera is literally packed with features. First and foremost, it’s equipped with a 3-axis gimbal, which means it’ll create incredibly stable footage regardless of how much you or the subject is moving around.

The sensor on the camera is 1/2.3″.

One of the most impressive things about this camera is its ability to capture 4K footage at 60fps. If you want silky smooth videos at high resolution, the Osmo Pocket will most certainly handle it.


As for battery life, the Osmo Pocket promises to last about 140 minutes, but of course, your mileage may vary when it comes to how long it’ll last.

Here are some other important things to point out about the new camera:

  • Noiseless cooling system
  • Universal Port supports lots of accessories
  • ActiveTrack automatically stays with subject in motion
  • Panorama mode
  • Timelapse mode
  • Ability to shoot in the dark
  • Connects to smartphone for additional options
