DJI has officially announced its newest iteration of the DJI Osmo Pocket camera gimbal. Not surprisingly, it’s called the DJI Pocket 2 (they’ve dropped the “Osmo”, seeming inline with dropping the “Onin” on their other new gimbals) and on the outside, it looks almost identical to its predecessor, save for a couple of extra buttons below the LCD. On the inside, though, it’s had quite the overhaul.
Feiyutech has announced a new camera that looks somewhat familiar. It’s the new Feiyu Pocket Handheld Gimbal – a tiny 4K 60fps 3-axis stabilised camera that can be held easily in your hand. Yeah, it does resemble the DJI Osmo Pocket a little bit huh? Except, this one’s about 2/3rds the price of the DJI, priced at only $249
DJI has recently entered the action camera market with the Osmo Action. But not long before that, the company had launched Osmo Pocket, a tiny 3-axis gimbal that shoots 4K 60fps video. But which one is better? Which one should you get? MAURO’S FILMS has made an in-depth comparison and it could help you make a decision.
From the moment it was announced, the DJI Osmo Pocket became an instant hit with vloggers. But with great quality video and a tiny form factor that easily fits into your pocket while housing a full 3-axis gimbal, that eventuality was not much of a surprise.
One big issue for vloggers, though, is audio. Many choose to use external microphones. There haven’t really been any options for the Osmo Pocket to get external audio. There are various Type-C to microphone adapters out there, but none of them actually worked with the Osmo Pocket. Now, though, DJI has their own official adapter.
When the GoPro Hero 7 Black was announced it was lauded as the “Gimbal killer” with some pretty amazing built-in image stabilisation. It’s even convinced a few people to finally upgrade from their GoPro Hero 4. But has DJI just announced a “GoPro killer”?
DJI recently announced the new DJI Osmo Pocket. A teeny tiny gimbal that seems to easily match the Hero 7 on specs, but features a true mechanical built-in gimbal rather than electronic image stabilisation. Dave Altizer at Kinotika took the two out for a spin to see how they compare.
You might think that it looks like DJI just announced what is essentially their Mavic gimbal on a stick. And you’d be right, it does look a bit like that. But there’s a bit more to it than that. Yes, it’s a tiny 3-axis motorised gimbal, but this is no ordinary stick. This is the new DJI Osmo Pocket. A teeny tiny handheld 3-axis gimbal that shoots 4K 60fps video.
