Pros and Cons of DJI Osmo Pocket: my honest review
Let’s talk first about the pros and cons of DJI Osmo Pocket, so later, we can focus on who is this camera made for. Let’s start with the Pros of DJI Osmo Pocket.
Pros of DJI Osmo Pocket – what’s so great about the camera
The first thing that comes to my mind when I think of Osmo Pocket is its size. It’s so small, that it fits in my smallest clutch, which is absolutely amazing, considering how full this clutch already is. You can carry it will you every day – and not notice that you have it with you. That’s super useful for spontaneous filming, for example.
DJI Osmo Pocket is pretty fast – once you turn it on, it takes a couple of seconds to unfold and voila, you can start filming. All you need to do is to press the on button.
c) Video quality
I was actually pleasantly surprised by the video quality. Of course it’s not comparable to even mirrorless DSLR like Sony A7 III (I own this camera, so I often compare the footage), however, it’s comparable with my iPhone 8+, which video quality I absolutely love. I stopped filming on iPhone 8+ because of many reasons, so I’m happy to have DJI Osmo Pocket for filming now.
I filmed my Seychelles video entirely on DJI Osmo Pocket.
d) Easy transfer files to smartphone / via microSD stick
If you edit your videos on your phone, you will be ecstatic – you can simply attach a plug (that comes with Osmo Pocket) to the device and start syncing your videos. If you edit everything on your laptop, well, it’s fast too – just take the microSD card out of the gimbal and plug it into the SD reader.
e) Many different filming modes + photo mode
Osmo pocket has quite a few different filming modes including slow motion, time-lapse and it even allows you to take photos. It’s also very easy to switch between modes.
f) Touch screen
The tiny touch screen is actually very useful – you can delete unnecessary media and it makes device navigation simple and intuitive.
Okay, as you can see, the pros of DJI Osmo Pocket are quite a few. However, there are also cons and let’s proceed to them.
Do you feel like buying DJI Osmo Pocket? Well, I can’t blame you, I’m also happy I bought it!
