DJI has introduced a new mini version of its Gimbal Actioncam Osmo. The DJI Osmo Pocket is a new model that stabilizes the video recordings of its camera by means of the integrated gimbal, just like the previous models of the Osmo series. The new one is the smallest model so far - it weighs only 116g and with 12×3,7×2,8cm it is quite small - and fits in (almost) every bag.
The 1/2.3" sensor records at up to UltraHD 4K/60fps in H.264 and a data rate of 100 Mbit/s - the lens has a viewing angle of 80° and an F2.0 aperture. Photos are taken with 12 megapixels. A microSD card (with a maximum of 256 GB) is used as the recording medium. In the handle there is a small touch screen for preview and operation as well as two buttons for recording control. The DJI Osmo Pocket features intelligent recording modes such as ActiveTrack, moving time-lapse and 3x3 panoramas.

The rechargeable battery integrated in the handle provides 140 minutes of recording power.
The DJI Osmo Pocket can use a smartphone as a preview monitor and control intelligent recording modes with the new Mimo App. As the Osmo has no wireless Bluettoth or WLAN connections without special accessories, smartphones can be connected via USB-C. The new Mimo App also allows you to control the intelligent recording modes. The Nightshot function automatically increases the exposure time to take brighter pictures.
The Pro mode allows full manual control over the following camera settings: aperture, ISO and exposure time. In Pro mode, photos can also be taken in RAW format and videos in D-Cinelike - and stable shots with 2-3 seconds exposure time can be taken without a tripod using the gimbal.
The DJI Osmo Pocket costs 359 Euro and is available in 2-3 weeks. DJI also offers matching accessories such as a waterproof housing up to 60 meters deep, an extension rod, an ND filter set and a wireless module for Wifi and Bluetooth connectivity to smartphones for the Osmo Pocket.
DJI Mimo App
DJI&s new Mimo App for smartphones provides better control of the Osmo Pocket, as well as video editing and sharing of recordings with the community. The recording of the DJI Osmo Pocket can also be controlled more specifically and better images can be taken using overexposure warnings and histograms.
The new Story mode (which is not yet available) is supposed to help to create nice social media clips of less than one minute. A combination of preset recording patterns and camera movements is used as well as specially designed filters and soundtracks. Recordings can be edited and edited using the Mimo App - including templates, special filters, music, watermarks and stickers.
