Two-minute review

The DJI Pocket 2 clearly wants to be the steady-cam option for vloggers and casual filmmakers. It’s never going to win over hardcore videographers; after all, its all-seeing eye is a 64MP camera with a smartphone-style sensor – how much quality can you realistically expect? That said, when you combine that sensor with DJI’s mastery of stabilization and object tracking, something very special ends up happening.

If you’re familiar with the brand’s recent launches, you’ll know that DJI has dropped ‘Osmo’ from its consumer-grade products like the DJI OM Mobile 4 smartphone gimbal. So, the DJI Pocket 2 is the direct follow-up to the DJI Osmo Pocket, and the general idea across both is the same: a gimbal-stabilized camera sat on top of a hand-holdable stick thing.

What’s new this time around? First off, there’s that 64MP sensor, bumped up from 12MP on the DJI Osmo Pocket. The Osmo Pocket’s 1/2.3-inch sensor has also been overshadowed by a much larger 1/1.7-inch sensor on the new DJI Pocket 2. Bigger sensors generally mean better performance, as evidenced by the recent high-end consumer drone, the excellent DJI Air 2S. 

Then there’s the field of view. The latest Pocket packs a 93-degree field of view (FOV), versus the 80 degrees of the original. In traditional focal length terms, that means 26mm (f/2.0) to 20mm (f/1.8). Wider framing means more reliable vlogging, and vlogging is a word that’ll be cropping up a fair bit when talking about the Pocket 2.

Think we’re done? Think again; there’s HDR video, a wider ISO range, improved audio capture, slow-motion capture at Full HD – and then there are the accessories. 

Pick up the Creator Combo, and an external wireless mic, complete with windshield, is the most valuable inclusion. The combo also packs an ultra-wide-angle lens, tripod legs, the Do-It-All Handle – which sports a mic-in jack for third-party audio options – as well as a holster. It’s also worth noting that the included wireless microphone has a mic jack, so options for wireless audio are extensive.  

As wonderful as everything looks so far, when it comes to image quality, DJI stumbles where most smartphones do – dynamic range and low light performance. Additionally, the small touchscreen can be fiddly, however, it does offer up a welcome preview of what you’re shooting.

This all makes the DJI Pocket 2 a best-in-class product, albeit one with clear areas for improvement. A DJI Pocket 3 with a 1-inch sensor? Sign us up.

DJI Pocket 2 release date and price

You can pick up the DJI Pocket 2 in two flavors. There’s a basic bundle, costing $349 / £339 / AU$599, which includes the Mini Control Stick and 1/4-inch tripod mount. Then there's also a DJI Pocket 2 Creator Combo, available for $499 / £469 / AU$799, which includes the basic bundle's accessories plus a Do-It-All Handle, Micro Tripod, Wide-Angle Lens, Windscreen (dead cat/wind guard) and a Wireless Microphone.

This is by no means low-cost, given the sensor in your smartphone may well be better quality than that in the DJI Pocket 2. But what your smartphone can’t do is mechanically stabilize your shot, follow you around, and benefit from external wireless recording (out of the box). How much those features matter to you will dictate how attractive the Pocket 2 is as a package.

Design and durability

  • Light and comfortable to hold
  • On-screen preview and joystick control
  • Compatible with tripods

The super-compact DJI Pocket 2 features a 3-axis gimbal at the helm, atop a stick which houses all its brains, battery and that very welcome screen. Hold the base, frame your shot on its 1-inch display and shoot for as long as the battery will let you on the very light, comfortable-to-hold, 117g gadget – there's no danger of hand fatigue here. Alternatively, you can prop it up on a tripod, included in the Creator Combo pack.

The mode and record buttons are under the DJI Pocket 2’s screen, and there's a new power button around the side. While you can still turn the gimbal on via the mode button, only the side-mounted power button can turn it off – handy for avoiding accidental shut-offs when cycling through modes.

There's a USB-C port on the bottom of the Pocket 2, though when mounted on a tripod, you’ll want to connect the gimbal to a phone via a universal port adapter that slides in between the screen and buttons. Included in the Pocket 2 box are small Lightning and USB-C adapters that fit into this slot for easy phone attachment and video export. 

Having a physical connection means it's faster and more reliable when transferring 4K video versus having to do it wirelessly – like we experience on so many action cameras. However, the adapters are extremely easy to lose.

If you see yourself simultaneously shooting on and charging up the Pocket 2 while it’s on a tripod, opt for the Creator Combo. The tripod mount base included in the standard pack covers up the USB-C port. Whack on the Do-It-All handle, however, and you bag yourself an extra USB-C port around the back.

The hard plastic holster that comes with the DJI Pocket 2 is a tight, secure fit. When not in the case, you can also rest a bit easier if you sense an impending drop, thanks to Drop Aware. This is DJI's preventative measure that senses a fall and locks up the gimbal to minimize damage. It’s still not quite an action cam like the GoPro Hero 9 Black, but is a great addition for anyone who's after mechanically stabilized video.

Specs and features

  • Excellent face-tracking
  • Handy wireless sound recording
  • Android and iOS smartphone app support

You can think of the DJI Pocket 2 as two cameras in one. The first is a stabilized out-and-about vlogging camera. The second is a camera operator, fixed in position, following you around as you chat away, walk around your kitchen, vlogging your day, cooking up a storm, or doing whatever it is vloggers do these days. 

First thing’s first – as a gimbal system, the three-axis DJI Pocket 2 handles walks and wobbles like a champion. Sure, you could pick up an action camera, but there’s this micro-judder that comes through when shake is being smoothed out. The Pocket 2 is free of those. Alternatively, why not get a smartphone gimbal? That would occupy your phone, and performance varies from mobile to mobile. In turn, there’s definitely a place for this funky little camera on a stick.

There are three main modes: Follow (camera remains horizontal), Tilt locked (up/down rotation disabled), and FPV mode (full range of movement). The differences aren’t immediately obvious, so we’d recommend an afternoon with a few cups of coffee, jumping around your garden or living room before actually taking it on a shoot. 

Fire up the app, and the DJI Pocket 2’s object tracking is unleashed as well as easier control over mode switching, panoramas and manual shooting. And if you fancy picking up the Creator Combo, you’ll have even more stuff to play with, specifically when it comes to ultra-wide capture thanks to the clip-on lens – propping the Pocket 2 up on the mini-pod – and external audio recording.

Video and image quality

  • 64MP 1/1.7-inch sensor shoots up to 4K/60fps
  • A clear improvement over the Osmo Pocket
  • Mediocre low-light and stills performance

The DJI Pocket 2 sports a 1/1.7-inch smartphone-grade sensor and 20mm f/1.8 lens. It still records 4K 60fps video at 100Mbps, as well as HDR video.

Despite us referencing the DJI Pocket 2’s camera as having a ‘smartphone sensor’, don’t let that throw you off; smartphones have come a long way. The gadget can capture wonderfully shallow depth of field at close range for such a small camera, and its autofocus has been boosted which makes it even sweeter.

The utility of object tracking can’t be overstated (which is why we’re bringing it up again). Place the Pocket on a tripod (standard thread fitting) and you’ll be able to walk around or move from side to side while the head follows you, and so long as you’ve got the app fired up, it keeps you center-frame throughout. With heavy backlighting, the DJI Pocket 2 dropped focus a couple of times, but it never lost a tracked face. 

Thanks to the sensor’s additional size, it can capture 4K video even when zoomed in slightly. Punch in four times lossless at 16MP for stills and 1080p video; three times for 2.7k video; and two times at 4K. This means, provided you’re shooting in a well-lit scene, you can frame your shot nice and tightly with a digital crop, and track your face without your pajama bottoms being in view, while retaining 4K resolution. It isn’t the crispest 4K we’ve seen – not by a long stretch – however, with decent sound matched with a respectable picture, this should suffice for most vloggers.

We mention well-lit scenes a fair bit, largely because where the Pocket 2 falls down is noise handling and dealing with high-contrast environments. In the dark, or even when capturing dark objects, you’ll see some grain, and when there are heavy highlights, focus can struggle. If you need A-grade video quality in all environments, then, that isn’t what this camera is about – but then again, nothing in its price/size bracket really is. 

Pro controls are also fully accessible from the Pocket 2, so you can tinker with the shutter speed, EV, focus mode and ISO of 100 to 6400, though the app makes for a less fiddly experience. Also new is the ability to adjust the follow focus speed and pause recordings, making this even more of a creator's one-stop-shop for video. TikTok dream? Actually, it’s a bit of a faff to shoot portrait mode content on the Pocket 2, so maybe stick with your smartphone for Reels.

Even more useful for shooting modes is how much you can squeeze in frame. The wide 93-degree field of view will delight vloggers who want to capture more of what's behind them, bettering the 80-degree Osmo Pocket by an ultra-wide margin.

If you are a videographer, or shoot with more top-end hardware, there are ways you can elevate the Pocket 2’s footage. When creating a Full HD project, you can shoot in 4K, downsample the footage, and apply some noise reduction, for example. 

Additionally, flattening the look with the cinematic D-Cinelike color profile makes sure your output is as editable as possible. With less electronic stabilization (processing) needed than other pocketable video options, thanks to that gimbal system, any processing applied to footage is also minimal, leaving more room for edits in post. 

The Pocket 2 captures skin tones with flattering color balance, and the level of stabilization it delivers when shooting handheld is unparalleled, so talking scenes to camera look wonderful. Slowed down footage shot at 60fps also makes for luxurious pans that look like they were captured on a slider – there’s plenty of clarity to the Pocket 2’s videos, and DJI’s color profiles add a bit of flexibility.

Sound quality also impresses, with the wireless mic and on-body mic both delivering the goods. We didn’t feel the wireless option was needed when shooting hand-held video, though if you’re worried about covering the mic holes, it might be a smart move to switch to wireless. 

When using the Pocket 2’s tracking feature, the wireless mic is essential. It let us go about our business without having to think about staying in-frame or speaking louder the further away we got from the camera. 

If you’re picking up the DJI Pocket 2 for photos, maybe don’t? There’s a very good chance if you’re using a 2020/21 flagship phone, it can do a much better job, and will be easier to handle with its larger screen. That said, if you’ve got the app fired up, Pro mode and the gimbal-grade stabilization will enable longer shutter speeds for anyone looking to get creative. Still, think of the DJI Pocket 2 as video recorder first, quick voiceover tool second, and stills camera a distant third. 

Battery life and additional specs

  • 875mAh battery
  • Charges via USB-C
  • Can get hot when shooting 4K video

The 875mAh non-removable battery in the DJI Pocket 2 is pretty tiny, though so too is the gimbal’s screen. When you shoot a lot of 4K footage at high quality, the Pocket 2 can get hot, shutting down before the battery drains. 

This happened after about an hour of capture, with the battery draining by just over 70 percent. That said, provided you’re shooting at 4K standard quality or 1080p resolution, the DJI Pocket 2 can keep going for longer – around two hours at Full HD. It can also record while connected to a power source.



Use DJI's Mimo app and your iOS or Android smartphone to polish your footage with preset shooting patterns, camera motions, filters, and soundtracks. Connect the Osmo Pocket via the included USB Type-C or Lightning adapters to use your smartphone as a larger viewfinder with the Mimo app. Add the separately available Wireless Module for remote control and transmission. A Pro mode enables you to adjust the camera's ISO and exposure settings for maximum creativity.

Unlike a similarly sized smartphone, the candy bar-sized Osmo Pocket offers intelligent functions like Active Track, FaceTrack, and Motionlapse to create compelling, creative effects. Choose between 180° and 3 x 3 panoramic shots to capture wide landscape vistas. The FPV mode provides a selfie perspective, and NightShot can be used to capture moonlit or low-light scenes.

The Osmo Pocket's passive cooling system quietly dissipates heat, and a rechargeable battery enables the camera to record up to 140 minutes of 1080p video. Accessories like ND filters, a retractable extension stick, a waterproof case, and an accessory mount are available separately to round out your Osmo Pocket experience.

Review: DJI Osmo Pocket

DJI Osmo Pocket
$350 |

The Osmo Pocket is an all-in-one camera with a built-in stabilizer that is, as the name suggests, pocket sized and incredibly easy to use. The camera is similar to what is found on DJI's drones and can shoot 4K video and still images in a variety of shooting modes. The Osmo Pocket is aimed primarily at vloggers, and the product's specs seem to reflect that. The camera is housed inside a three-axis gimbal which keeps footage steady even as you're doing the walk and talk.

Although the tech inside the camera and the gimbal aren't particularly revolutionary, the Osmo Pocket is unique because it combines these two products into one, creating a single pocket-sized product that produces quality footage quickly.

Key specifications

  • 25.7mm (equiv) F2 lens (80 degrees FOV)
  • 1/2.3" CMOS sensor
  • 12MP resolution
  • 4K Ultra HD video: 3840 x 2160 24/25/30/48/50/60p,
  • FHD: 1920x1080 24/25/30/48/50/60/120p
  • ISO 100-3200
  • Built-in gimbal
  • Weight: 116g / 4oz
  • Dimensions: 121.9 x 36.9 x 28.6 mm
  • MicroSD slot up to 256GB
  • LiPo 875 mAH 6.738 Wh battery, 140 mins operating time when shooting 1080p/30 fps video
  • 48 KHz AAC audio output


The Osmo Pocket only has two buttons making stand alone operation very straightforward. The button on the right turns the Osmo Pocket on, touchscreen controls allow you to select different shooting modes (photo, video, slow-mo, timelapse, pano), recording resolution (4K or 1080p), access settings like fast follow, slow follow, FPV, or to recenter the camera, and review files. The button on the left with the red dot is how you start recording footage or shooting photos.

ISO 100 | 1/50 sec | F2

There is an option to connect a smartphone to the Osmo Pocket via a small adapter and shoot through the DJI Mimo app. In theory, shooting with the app gives users more control over the Osmo Pocket's features; you get a larger view of what you are filming, can see a histogram, and get alerts if your footage is overexposed. Although the idea is a nice one, in practice attaching a phone to the Osmo Pocket defeats its best feature: its simplicity.

For starters, the smartphone attachment is tiny – during my time shooting with the Osmo Pocket I misplaced this accessory and the plastic cover that slides off a number of times. To ensure that the connection between the Osmo Pocket and my phone was tight I had to remove my iPhone X from its protective case, which is a setup that I didn't find ideal. Although attaching a phone and using the app gives you a better idea of what you might be shooting, once the phone is attached the setup feels really unbalanced. I found it difficult to shoot, walk, use my phone as a touchscreen to control the camera, and also make sure I wasn't about to drop my phone and end up with a dreaded spider web screen.

With an optional attachement it's possible to operate the Osmo Pocket from your smartphone using the DJI Mimo app.

There is an additional Bluetooth accessory that you can attach to the bottom of the Osmo Pocket, which in theory would let you monitor the footage you are shooting without having the phone attached to the Osmo Pocket, but I didn't test this and can't speak to its usability. It would have been amazing if the Osmo Pocket just had built in WiFi or Bluetooth connectivity. More often than not I chose to use the Osmo Pocket without the DJI Mimo app. For me, shooting with the tiny screen as my monitor and trusting that the camera would do its job ended up being the ideal way to use the Osmo Pocket.


The biggest draw of the Osmo Pocket is its ability to shoot stabilized 4K video footage at 30 or 60 fps. It can also shoot slow-motion 1080p at 120 fps. It's similar to the quality of footage that you will get from one of DJI's drones and the most recent smartphones.

The camera has an ISO range of 100-3200 and a lens with an aperture of F2, and for best results you are going to want to use the Osmo Pocket in sunny conditions.

Where the Osmo Pocket really excels is in-camera stabilization as a result of the integrated gimbal. It managed to keep this video fairly smooth despite running after a dog through New York City.

The camera stabilization of the Osmo Pocket is really its most impressive feature. It's easier to use than larger stabilizers and seems to be just as reliable, likely because the stabilization tech inside was initially created for keeping the cameras attached to drones stable. The moment you turn the Osmo Pocket on the camera rotates into place to begin tracking whatever might be in front of it. As you move the gimbal moves with you to create impressively smooth footage.

Although the pre-amps inside the Osmo Pocket aren't the best, the camera did do a decent job picking up sound. You will notice that the clips from a very loud live show have an audio quality similar to what you might get when recording with a smartphone.

The Osmo Pocket delivers sound quality similar to what you would get with a smartphone. Likewise, due to its small sensor, low light video is on par with a smartphone as well.

Still images

If you are looking to shoot stills with the Osmo Pocket you should expect files that look similar to what you will get from your smartphone. Files top out at 12MP and the camera performs best when shooting in bright conditions. The 1/2.3" CMOS sensor and the F2 lens are very similar to those found on standard smartphones and you can expect the images to look about the same.

Unfortunately, the Osmo Pocket seems to have trouble keeping up with fast moving subjects when shooting stills. I noticed a lot of unintentional image blur while using it. One thing worth noting is the ease with which you can swap between photo and video modes on that touchscreen – which isn't always a good thing. On more than one occasion I found that I'd unintentionally switched the Osmo Pocket into photo mode when I meant to be in video mode.

ISO 100 | 1/2000 sec | F2


The DJI Osmo Pocket isn't exactly a must-have gadget in most shooters' professional kits, but it does a surprisingly good job of capturing quality, stabilized video footage for its tiny size.

The Osmo Pocket feels like a good option for capturing supplementary BTS footage on a big shoot or POV video stories for vloggers and influencers. Its simple operation won't intimidate people just getting into content creation. It also seems like it could be a great starter camera for kids who have shown an interest in video production.

The built-in stabilization in the Osmo Pocket is ultimately what makes this gadget so appealing. Although the quality of footage is similar to what you will get from a standard smartphone, the Osmo Pocket provides something that a smartphone simply can't do on its own: seamlessly smooth footage.

What we like:

  • Lightweight and easy to use as a standalone device
  • 4K video capabilities
  • In-camera stabilization
  • Decent audio quality
  • Touch screen controls

What we'd like to see improved:

  • Feels unbalanced when shooting with smartphone attached, which makes the Mimo app of limited use
  • Lack of built-in WiFi or Bluetooth to connect to app
  • Removable cover for smartphone adapter is so small that it's easy to misplace

DJI - Meet Osmo Pocket

DJI Osmo Pocket review: a tiny camera that doesn’t skimp on the stabilization

The promise of DJI’s Osmo Pocket handheld video camera isn’t about giving you the same raw video or audio quality that you would get when recording with a DSLR and an external mic. Instead, this is a camera that prioritizes a simple, compact form factor to help you look much more skillful with a camera than you actually are.

Modern vlogs, with their tight editing and many establishing shots, take a lot of precision and patience to shoot, and that’s where a camera like the Osmo Pocket comes in. Over the past decade, YouTube vlogging has developed its own style of cinematography, with beautifully framed time-lapses serving as frequent scene transitions between succinct monologues. Although this is designed to create an impression of effortlessness, its execution is anything but. DJI’s new camera is packed with features that are designed to close this gap.

At its core, the Osmo Pocket has a three-axis stabilized gimbal that ensures your footage is smooth and appears professional even when you’re operating without the help of a tripod. It’s also got more advanced functionality like support for time-lapses and motion-lapses that make the other staples of the vlogging genre far easier to capture.

DJI’s $349 Osmo Pocket shoots in HD or 4K resolution, and once you’ve captured your footage, you can offload it via a USB-C cable to your PC or export it directly to your phone via the DJI Mimo app. It’s a very capable camera, but it falls short of being the all-in-one vlogging powerhouse that it aspires to be.

The centerpiece of the DJI Osmo Pocket is its three-axis stabilizer. It’s a compact and proficient mechanism, and the Osmo Pocket is keen to remind you of this. Every time you turn the camera on, the gimbal rotates one way and then the other with a satisfying click, like it’s doing a morning stretch after getting out of bed.

As a whole, the camera feels solidly built, but the gimbal mechanism seems delicate. You’re not going to take the Osmo Pocket to many of the locations where you’d use a GoPro Hero 7. DJI’s camera isn’t waterproof, and I worry about dropping it onto concrete, let alone using it to capture myself skiing down a mountain.

DJI’s handheld camera is much better suited for vlogging. Its long handle is designed to be held rather than strapped to the side of a helmet, and its gimbal won’t even be able to move properly if you don’t give the camera enough space.

Beneath the camera, there are a pair of buttons — one multifunctional and one for recording video and taking photos — and a small one-inch touchscreen. The camera also comes with a small, removable pair of connectors (one USB-C and one Lightning), which you attach to the camera. These then allow the Osmo Pocket to be fixed to the bottom of a phone and held horizontally to allow you to control the camera using your phone’s touchscreen or transfer your footage. When not in use, the connector can be flipped around so it doesn’t protrude.

The one-inch screen is tiny, so it’s got a basic user interface that’s designed around four menus that each swipe in from a different side. You can use these to change settings like the resolution you’re using or putting the camera in selfie mode. As you’d expect from a touchscreen of this size, attempting to use it directly is a bit of a pain. The menu options are small and hard to tap accurately, and swiping the bottom menu upward can be a challenge when you’ve got the phone connector accessory inserted beneath it.

Thankfully, unless you’re constantly switching between resolutions or frame rates, most of the functions you’ll want to use can be accessed from the multifunction button, leaving the screen for simpler tweaks like setting the part of the frame where you want the image exposed or picking an object for the camera to automatically keep in focus.

Holding the camera’s multifunction button turns the Osmo Pocket on and off, pressing it once toggles between video and stills mode, two presses recenters the camera, and three will flip the camera into selfie mode. There will almost certainly be people who need more immediate access to the camera’s advanced features, but for me, the quick-access selection adequately covered the things I needed immediate access to while using the camera.

If you want more immediate access to the camera’s advanced functionality, attaching it to a smartphone is a great way to achieve that. The only problem is that this turns the Osmo Pocket from a device that can comfortably be used with one hand into something that feels like it needs two hands to operate properly. For me, this trade-off doesn’t make sense.

Without a phone attached, you can shoot within 10 seconds; using a phone adds a couple of seconds of setup. With the Android device I was using (a Pixel 3), the phone was clever enough to open the companion DJI Mimo app automatically every time I plugged the camera in. It was never as quick as opening the camera app on my phone, but it was fast enough that I rarely missed something that I was intending to capture.

Although there are a fair amount of additional features like time-lapses, panoramas, and motion-lapses for those who want them, the Osmo Pocket is at its best when you’re just walking, shooting, and letting the three-axis gimbal do its work.

The video above should give you a better idea of the quality of the footage that the DJI Osmo Pocket is capable of.

I was almost ready to believe that I was going to effortlessly create Kubrick-esque steady-cam shots before I started using the Osmo Pocket for myself, but the reality was a lot more modest. Yes, you can try to steady your shots so they glide through a space, but in my experience, you’ll always be able to see the camera bob slightly with each step you take, no matter how careful you are. If you take less effort, then your footage starts to look like a scene from a first-person shooting game, and that’s especially true if you try running with the camera.

The quality of the footage I captured with the Osmo Pocket was also good. Colors are vibrant (if a touch oversaturated). There’s a little bit of noise when you’re shooting in 4K, but the detail was generally good. Unfortunately, the camera’s low-light performance wasn’t quite as strong. I recorded a fair amount of footage on city streets late at night, and there was plenty of noise visible in the resulting shots.

For the most part, you can get away with pointing the camera at whatever you want to shoot and pressing the record button, but you’ll still need to be prepared to manually adjust settings in order to make sure your shot isn’t overexposed or underexposed. At one point, I tried to capture a building against a bright afternoon sky, and the detail of the building was almost entirely lost in shadow because I didn’t tap the building to tell the Osmo Pocket to expose for it.

Along with supporting multiple resolutions, the Osmo Pocket can also be switched between 30 fps and 60 fps. I spent some time playing around with the different options before settling on 30 fps as the one that offered me the best mix of video quality and file sizes.

The aforementioned time-lapse feature is one of the real highlights of the Osmo Pocket. It can either do a static time-lapse or it can pan between two points. Setting up the latter is surprisingly simple to do; you place the Osmo Pocket on a stable surface and then physically rotate its gimbal to indicate the time-lapse’s start and end points. The only problem here is that the Osmo Pocket isn’t exactly designed to be stood up like this, and I was constantly worried that the wind was going to blow it over whenever I tried capturing a time-lapse outside. A wireless module gives the camera a wider, more stable base, and it also lets you wirelessly control the Osmo Pocket from your phone, but it’s an optional accessory that costs around $100.

The Osmo Pocket is also capable of shooting in slow motion, where you’ll be able to capture at 120 fps to create a 30 fps video. Unfortunately, when I tried the mode, the footage came out looking very noisy and grainy, and it was a definite step down from the camera’s normal quality. In the end, this was the mode with which I spent the least amount of time, which is a shame since it could have been such a useful feature.

Qualms about the quality of its slow-motion recording aside, overall, I liked the quality of the video footage that the DJI Osmo Pocket produced. However, audio was more of a letdown. Part of it is an ergonomic oversight. The Osmo Pocket has two microphones, one just above the recording button and another on the bottom of the device, and if you’re not careful, you’ll rub your hand all over both of them as you change grip positions. I got better at not holding the camera “wrong” with some practice, but ultimately, the Osmo Pocket’s audio always sounded like it was recorded from a small built-in microphone — because it was.

Considering how geared the Osmo Pocket is toward the vlogging genre, it’s fair to expect better sound quality from it than a typical tiny video camera. DJI sells a small USB-C to microphone jack converter for the camera, and there are also mics available that connect directly over USB-C. You’ll want to verify that third-party accessories work before buying one for yourself. If you intend to do any serious vlogging with the Osmo Pocket, I’d seriously think about picking up an external mic to use with the camera.

You can also use the DJI Osmo Pocket to take photographs. You can switch to this mode quickly by tapping the multifunction button once. I was surprised by how much I enjoyed this mode, given that shooting photos is almost an afterthought with a camera of this kind. It’s not that the photographs are especially good — I’d say they’re about on par with an average smartphone camera — but quickly taking them is very easy to do. Whenever I take a photo with a smartphone or standalone camera, I always have to pause momentarily before I take the first shot to avoid blur from the motion of me raising the camera. With the Osmo Pocket, this wasn’t nearly as much of an issue. I could move the camera around, snap shots, and worry far less about making sure it was steady before pressing the shutter button. That’s the magic of the gimbal at work.

If you’re a more considered photographer, then you’ll likely do better with a proper camera. In particular, I often found it hard to frame subjects properly with the Osmo Pocket. Not only is the camera’s screen really small, but the stabilization meant that it could be hard to tilt the camera to make sure the scene was level. I’d try to tilt the camera, and it would work to cancel out the movement. It was often a frustrating experience.

DJI’s Osmo Pocket does a great job of delivering on the capabilities of its form factor. It’s compact, easy to use, and I liked the quality of the video footage it produced (even if its audio falls short of its aspirations as a vlogging camera). But it’s a harder camera to recommend than other portable solutions for shooting video because of its price and lack of versatility. It’s not as rugged as an action cam, and it’s not as cheap as a standalone gimbal for your existing smartphone.

The DJI Osmo Pocket is a great example of a gadget that’s designed to fit a particular form factor. It really is tiny for the job that it does, and if that’s the overriding priority for you, then there’s little else out there like it. But if you don’t need the ergonomics and pocketability, then you might be better served by a more general purpose alternative.
