DJI has just launched a new portable camera named the ‘Osmo Pocket’ at their ‘Because Life Is Big’ event in New York.

Launched during a small event at the ‘Good Morning America’ Studios in Midtown Manhattan, DJI has just added a new model to their Osmo range.

This impressive micro-scale vlogging and action-camera incorporates a 3-axis mechanical gimbal, full colour touch-screen and a comprehensive selection of modes which may allow it to become a serious contender for the recently launched GoPro Hero 7 series.

The DJI Osmo Pocket boasts a top video specification of 4K @60fps with a bitrate of 100mbps, in addition its 1/2.3″ sensor is coupled with a mechanical focus enabling sharp near/distant object shots.

The new model also brings with it a new DJI app called ‘DJI Mimo’, this ‘creation suite’ allows quick and easy production of visual mixes from captured footage.

Two weeks ago, DJI kindly sent DroningON this exclusive new product for early test and review. We are therefore proud to present our full early review below.

The latest ultra-portable mechanically stabilized platform from DJI also offers the following features:

  • Panorama 180 degree + 3×3
  • 12mb/px photos
  • Slow Motion mode
  • Face Tracking
  • Active Track

The DJI Osmo Pocket can be coupled with a smart phone to provide a ‘camcorder’ experience courtesy of the feature-packed app ‘DJI Mimo’ but this little device can also be used entirely stand-alone thanks to its full colour, touch-screen display.

Weighing in at a mere 116g, the DJI Osmo Pocket is on-par with the GoPro Hero 7 Black at precisely the same weight, but the form-factor of the DJI competitor is far more convenient for vloggers and those on the move, in addition the mechanical gimbal provides a far more fluid video experience.

The new DJI Osmo Pocket is available direct from the DJI Store for delivery worldwide, take a look here.
