DJI has announced Osmo Pocket, a compact three-axis stabilised camera that hosts several intelligent features to help you capture videos and images in a portable factor. At just over 4 inches tall, Osmo Pocket is DJI’s smallest three-axis stabilised camera. It has a 1/2.3-inch sensor that records 12 MP photographs and 4K video up to 60 fps at 100 Mbps.
Osmo Pocket uses built-in dual microphones and advanced noise-cancelling algorithms to ensure you capture high-quality audio to match your footage. Furthermore, it has a battery life of up to 2 hours when shooting video in 4K, 30 fps, so you won’t miss out on capturing your story in high-quality no matter where you are.
Building on DJI’s experience in creating gimbal technology, Osmo Pocket helps capture stable videos. The three-axis mechanical gimbal compensates for movements and smooths these motions so you can focus on composition and subject matter. The gimbal camera uses a 1-inch integrated touchscreen that provides a high-quality live view as well as the ability to toggle through various shooting modes, adjust settings and review footage.
The camera’s touchscreen also allows you to gain access to a full suite of creative features offered by DJI, including ActiveTrack that allows the camera to recognise and follow subjects, FaceTrack that automatically recognises a human face and locks the subject in the centre of the frame at all times, Timelapse and Motionlapse that allow you to capture movement over a period of time, FPV Mode that allows you to shoot dynamic footage and two Panorama modes.
Located below the touchscreen of the camera is a universal port for connecting mobile devices that use iOS Lightning or USB-C. The Osmo Pocket retails for USD 349 and is available for pre-orders, which start shipping on 15 December.
