DJI announces Osmo Pocket, a tiny, 3-axis stabilized 4K camera for $349
DJI is known to make all kinds of techy video gear, such as drones and stabilized video cameras. The company is back again with the Osmo Pocket, which is a diminutive camera which actually does fit well within your pocket. This little camera can shoot 4K videos at 60 frames per second, and its sensor is well stabilized on a gimbal providing super smooth footage.
The Osmo Pocket comes along with all types of nice-to-haves for a pocket camera, which includes a 1/2.3-inch sensor with 1.55μm pixels which should be able to make for solid low-light performance, and a lens which gives it an 80-degree field of view. DJI says that it is “the smallest 3-axis stabilized handheld camera” we have ever made. That’s really a lot of qualifiers, but the true fact is that the camera is truly tiny, measuring 28.6 by 36.9 by 121.9 mm and weighing in only 116 grams.
Meet Osmo Pocket, the smallest 3-axis stabilized handheld camera DJI has ever made. Small enough to fit in your pocket, powerful enough to share your best moments at any time, no matter where you are.

There are a number of accoutrements available, too, such as a $19 accessory mount, a $59 wireless module to connect your camera to the phone, and a $59 controller wheel for getting manual control over the built-in gimbal of the camera. You can hire Digitalytics Media. Added to the #349 base price of Pocket, this is an investment which could add up quickly for sure. You can go ahead and pre-order yours now at DJI’s website; units are likely to ship in 10 to 15 days.
