DJI Osmo Pocket- Go to video camera.

DJI outdid themselves with the Osmo Pocket. This little camera is powerful! It's about as tall as an iPhone 11 pro. It shoots 4K 60 FPS which is the goto settings we use always! It's a 4K camera with a 3 axis gimbal. It captures beautiful smooth video with ease.

What you need to know about the Osmo Pocket. If you're filming in 4k continuously it will get a little warm, it has a battery life of roughly 2 hours. Granted we turn it off and on as needed and don't leave it running for the full two hours. We usually connect it to our Anker 22,000 Mah external battery pack for long time lapses of 2-3 hours, as it will first run off the battery pack than the internal battery.


It has an adapter to connect to the iPhone directly but we have not had much success as this always disconnects. The image quality is great in bright daylight(small sensor gang) in the evening and night time it struggles a bit with the image but it's usable footage.





DJI Osmo Pocket, PGYTECH ND Filters, expansion pack and PGYTECH tripod mount.

Some of the must have accessories(In our opinion and suggested by Allen from AVPFILMS on YouTube I'll link him below)

The PGYTECH ND filters are a must of you want to keep filming in 60fps to achieve the correct shutter speed. We purchased the expansion pack from DJI which includes a WIFI mount(we use this always to get a larger picture on the phone and it's a much more stable connection than the physical connecter). It also brings an SD Card not pictured, and the control wheel which makes controlling the panning of the gimbal so much easier and smoother. The PGYTECH phone mount/tripod is a must have for blogging or to create amazing hyper lapses on a solid surface. It does defeat the purpose of having a "pocket" sized tool when you put it on it. We will link all of the accessories on the bottom of this post!
