Beyond the novelty of being a petite stabilized video camera, the DJI Osmo Pocket offers a string of surprisingly nifty functions. DJI makes the most of the Osmo’s three-axis stabilizer with features like Active Track that follows the subject of your choice, Face Track to keep a face in the center of the frame as you shoot, and FPV mode, which uses the gimbal’s position to follow your point of view.
Other creative options: Shoot 3x3 or 180-degree panoramas, make timelapse and motionlapse video, and use your mobile device as a monitor and to edit video in Story mode.
The camera has a 1/2.3-inch sensor that captures 12-megapixel photographs and 4K video up to 60fps. Built-in dual microphones with noise-cancelling algorithms record high-quality audio. Optional accessories include a mount for action camera accessories, wireless module for Wi-Fi and Bluetooth transmission, and a controller wheel. $349
