The DJI Osmo Pocket is an impressively small camera on a three-axis gimbal to stabilize your video and photos. Below the camera is a 1-inch touchscreen to preview what you shoot and a Lightning or USB-C connector to tether to your phone.
A hidden connector below the screen lets you attach an iPhone or Android phone to the grip for a bigger preview, playback and editing and full control over settings via a new DJI Mimo app. That'll give you access to its Intelligent Modes so you can have it automatically track moving subjects, create panoramas and shoot time-lapse and hyper-lapse videos, too. Plus, the Mimo app has a Pro Mode for manual controls.
The camera uses a 1/2.3-inch sensor with 1.55 micron pixels, which is the same size found in GoPro cameras, point-and-shoots and higher-end phones. That's significantly smaller than the 1-inch sensor found in DJI's Mavic 2 Pro drone, but it's the same as the Mavic 2 Zoom.
Shooting options include 12-megapixel photos and 4K-resolution video up to 60 frames per second (at a 100Mbps bit rate) and full HD at up to 120fps for slow motion. It incorporates dual noise-canceling microphones, and the battery is rated for 140 minutes -- DJI claims you can get up to 2 hours in 4K/30fps.
And at a little more than 4 inches, it really is pocket-size. It will have a host of accessories, including a controller wheel for the gimbal, set of neutral density filters, a waterproof case, charging case and a 31-inch extension rod.
The DJI Osmo Pocket is available to preorder now for $349 (£329, AUD $599) and is expected to ship Dec. 15.
