A game-changer for on-the-go creatives

In general, videos or photos captured by the Osmo Pocket are not going to look as great as footage captured by the best smartphones (let alone DSLRs), but they're more than good enough for social media, and in my opinion can even be used in a professional setting in limited doses.

In general, videos or photos captured by the Osmo Pocket are not going to look as great as footage captured by the best smartphones (let alone DSLRs), but they're more than good enough for social media, and in my opinion can even be used in a professional setting in limited doses. I'm confident many YouTube channels or Instagram influencers -- even the big ones with millions of followers -- can use the Osmo Pocket footage for B-roll footage with no qualms.

If you like making videos, you should consider this gadget. The Osmo Pocket is remarkably versatile and easy to use. It’s also so damned small; you could put it in your pocket. While $350 might seem like a lot of money to get a better version of the video camera that’s already on your smartphone, be honest with yourself. Your smartphone video camera isn’t great. You might want to invest in the camcorder of the future.

A pocket-sized, lightweight, all-in-one 4K stabilised video camera that's worth every penny

For content creators and influencers the Osmo Pocket represents a cheaper, more sophisticated alternative to expensive equipment that can mean easily remaining a one person production unit. 

It’s tiny, lightweight and extremely good at what it’s been designed to do, but to allow the Pocket to truly shine you’ll definitely be investing in some of its accessories.

Silky smooth shooting in a pint-sized package

In truth, the biggest problem facing the Osmo Pocket is necessity. It’s fun, intuitive and impressively capable, delivering footage so stable it makes tripods jealous. But who is it for? Videographers won’t be tempted away from the quality and versatility of pro kit; thrillseekers will want something more durable; vloggers will bemoan the lack of livestreaming; and, while the smartphone crowd might like the idea of smoother shooting, the £329 price tag makes the Pocket far from a pocket-money purchase. So it’s a niche thing, neither accessory nor standalone camera, priced like a proper compact but best used with your mobile.

The DJI Osmo Pocket isn't exactly a must-have gadget in most shooters' professional kits, but it does a surprisingly good job of capturing quality, stabilized video footage for its tiny size. The Osmo Pocket feels like a good option for capturing supplementary BTS footage on a big shoot or POV video stories for vloggers and influencers. Its simple operation won't intimidate people just getting into content creation. It also seems like it could be a great starter camera for kids who have shown an interest in video production. The built-in stabilization in the Osmo Pocket is ultimately what makes this gadget so appealing.

A tiny camera that doesn't skimp on the stabilization

from The Verge

The DJI Osmo Pocket is a great example of a gadget that’s designed to fit a particular form factor. It really is tiny for the job that it does, and if that’s the overriding priority for you, then there’s little else out there like it. But if you don’t need the ergonomics and pocketability...More

The DJI Osmo Pocket is a great example of a gadget that’s designed to fit a particular form factor. It really is tiny for the job that it does, and if that’s the overriding priority for you, then there’s little else out there like it. But if you don’t need the ergonomics and pocketability, then you might be better served by a more general purpose alternative.

Stabilized, drone-style camera

from Wired

The Osmo Pocket is really occupying a niche space between smartphones and GoPros and much bigger professional cameras—and thanks to software, image stabilization is getting quite good on those devices too. It’s hard to say if the Pocket will take the world by storm beyond the vloggers who have already embraced it.

The real ‘hero’ of stabilized video

The DJI Osmo Pocket puts video stabilization in the palm of your hand, with a small camera that smooths out your footage thanks to a 3-axis gimbal.

The DJI Osmo Pocket puts video stabilization in the palm of your hand, with a small camera that smooths out your footage thanks to a 3-axis gimbal. It's pocketable, like the name suggests, and doesn't hog your smartphone, like the larger DJI Osmo Mobile 2. The fluid 4K resolution is ideal for anyone who uploads to YouTube, yet hates the idea of being shackled to professional-sized camera stabilization equipment. It’s not as durable as a GoPro and its microphone isn’t the best, but our testing proved that it’s the real ‘hero’ of smooth video and video transfer speeds.
