DJI Osmo Pocket Six Weeks Later – The Issues, Design Challenges & Negatives

The DJI Osmo Pocket was launched a month ago and we were lucky to have received a unit two weeks before launch as an early reviewer. This has given us lots of time to put together the ultimate list of improvements which could make this device even better.

This article must be prefaced with making clear that we absolutely lovely the Osmo Pocket, but as with any first-generation device, there are always irritations which are open for improvement.

As the smallest device currently available boasting 4K video resolution, half-inch camera sensor, 3-axis mechanical gimbal, mini touch-screen, two hours of battery time and a variety of impressive features and accessories, the DJI Osmo Pocket has impressed so far, but a few tweaks could make it even better.

Having now had the DJI Osmo Pocket for over six weeks, we have prepared a list of the key issues to be addressed either in this model via firmware/software updates, or in the DJI Osmo Pocket 2.

Despite the issues raised in this video, we still admire the DJI Osmo Pocket and carry it with us regardless of where we are going as we have found it to be a suitable replacement for our SLR camera for filming content for our YouTube channel.
