DJI is probably most famous for their drones but they also make handheld gimbals. Their latest gimbal is the DJI Osmo Pocket and it has been leaked ahead of its official reveal. The DJI Osmo Pocket certainly lives up to its name. As you can see in the images above, the device is small enough to fit in the palm of your hand. So tucking this little guy into a pocket isn’t hard to imagine.
The DJI Osmo Pocket is a combination camera and gimbal and speculation is that it will be marketed to compete against GoPro’s latest Hero 7 action camera. We’re sure both cameras will be fantastic but DJI does have a leg up given that their camera comes mounted to a gimbal already. The gimbal will give better stability to action shots and provide better video footage.
The Osmo Pocket supposedly sports a 1/2.3-inch sensor and shoots 12-megapixel still photos and records video in 4K at 60 fps. The Osmo Pocket also has a touchscreen for controlling the unit but will also pair with a smartphone app which Engadget says is called the DJI Mimo app.
According to a purloined manual, “Intelligent Modes such as ActiveTrack, Panorama, and Timelapse give you everything you need for the perfect shot.” Other specs are unknown, but the device will supposedly cost $399. It bears a strong resemblance to the camera on DJI’s Mavic 2 Zoom, so it might also pack a zoom lens. We’ll know all later today (November 28th) at DJI’s “Because Life is Big” event in New York starting at 2PM ET.
The DJI Osmo Pocket is an interesting little device. The price tag is hefty at $399USD but we think there will be a market for this.Source: Engadget
