Retailpartnership.net – The camera is now a thing, especially for you who are video makers. It is not only about the quality of the camera, but also its flexibility to bring everywhere. So, we think we need to thank the DJI for releasing the newest camera that is said pocketable, yet with better quality. So, let’s look further in the review DJI Osmo Pocket.
Quick Review of DJI Osmo Pocket
The Osmo Pocket sounds promising for providing camera and its mini gimbal stabilizer. Or we can say it as the mini version of DJI Osmo that offers a competitive result on recording and capturing pictures. With its 4-inch size and only comes in 116 gr, everyone seems to love for its flexibility. It is so handy pocketable.
Here, everyone agrees that the camera series is similar to the DJI Mavic Air drone for having a f/20 aperture. This means this camera can perform well in the low light. Besides, what makes this camera unique is its the 3-axis gimbal that enables the user to create a nice cinematic video effect which is now still impossible to do it with the smartphone. The gimbal technology will reduce the vibration when capturing pictures or making a video.
The recording comes with various controls and types. The user now can use the motion lapse, time-lapse video until the motion video. It is interestingly useful.
However, There is a downside we don’t like much after we found this camera isn’t waterproof, in case you use the optional case. Overall, every potential thing in the device needs the accessories and also the smartphone to unlock it.
Even though this series comes with the mini look, this Osmo Pocket still features the 1-inch touchscreen for helping the user adjust the camera; framing, setting modes and so on. However, it is still can be connected to the smartphone using USB-C.
Talking about the touchscreen performance, the user needs to use gestures on an inch display to set many settings and navigate it. The real treat is when we use the gesture because it is clunky. But when it is connected to the smartphone, the device is much easier to navigate. Even it is more intuitive.
There is the interesting thing we found in the device. We found the microSD card (up to 256GB), but the user still can record a video without inserting the card as long as it is connected with the smartphone. All of the records will be saved automatically in the smartphone’s internal memory. However, it is not applied when the user captures a pic. A microSD card needs to be inserted there.
