DJI announces Osmo Pocket, tiny handheld gimbal can shoots 4K footage

DJI new product, the Osmo pocket is the smallest handheld stabilizer the camera company has made. It takes a bunch of things the chinese company has done really well and puts them in to an impressively small form factor.  It’s meant to offer drone-like footage in a size that is comparable to a GoPro (even if it can’t take the same kinds of wear and tear). The Osmo Pocket costs $349 and ships December 15th.

The Osmo Pocket comes with all kinds of nice-to-haves for a pocket camera, including a 1/2.3-inch sensor with 1.55μm pixels that should make for solid low-light performance, and a lens that affords it an 80-degree field of view. DJI says it's "the smallest 3-axis stabilized handheld camera" the company has ever made. That's a lot of qualifiers, but the thing truly is tiny, measuring 28.6 by 36.9 by 121.9 millimeters and weighing in at 116 grams.

DJI also plans to sell a number of accessories for the Osmo Pocket. There’s a mount that will let users attach it to things, GoPro-style, as well as a Wi-Fi controller, a set of ND filters, a waterproof case, an extension rod, and a 3.5mm adapter for external microphones. Also coming soon is a carrying case with a battery that can charge the Osmo Pocket while stored. \

There are tons of accoutrements available, too, like a $19 accessory mount, a $59 wireless module for connecting the camera to your phone, and a $59 controller wheel for manual control over the camera's built-in gimbal. Added to the Pocket's base price of $349, this is an investment that could add up quickly. You can pre-order yours now at DJI's website; units are expected to ship in 10 to 15 days.
