DJI Osmo Pocket: The Most Innovative, Smartest Camera EVER Invented!

OK. Here is the thing. As avid photo and camera experts, we have never seen anything more innovative than the new brand extension to the top-selling drones by DJI. They repurposed their gimbal and camera technology for the smartest teeny-tiny vertical ever seen.




This is the smallest 3-axis stabilized handheld camera DJI has ever designed, the compact and intelligent Osmo Pocket turns any moment into a cinematic memory. Measuring in at just under five inches long, this tiny stabilized vlogging camera is certainly an impressive piece of kit, boasting the smallest three-axis gimbal in DJI history.

The DJI Osmo Pocket is so compact it fits inside your pocket. At 4.8″ tall and weighing 0.25 lb, the Pocket is the smallest 3-axis stabilized handheld camera from DJI.  It may also be the smallest mechanical gimbal available on the market. Can you imagine if back in the 1800s George Eastman saw it, or even Steve Jobs in the 1970s? Despite its pocket portability and small stature, the Pocket packs innovations the likes of which nobody has ever seen before. Not even James Bond (his crazy-cool back-in-the-day camera was a Minox).


The Osmo Pocket has a 3-axis gimbal atop a tiny little rectangular piece – the whole unit is about the size of a large fork or one-third the size of a smartphone. It’s crazy small.

Prior to the DJI Osmo Pocket Camera, and next to smartphone camera technology, we have to look way back to the Minox A/IIIs camera–was used by George Lazenby in the movie On Her Majesty’s Secret Service (1969).


The original Minox subminiature camera was invented by Walter Zapp in 1936. He wanted to create a portable camera that would fit easily into the palm of the hand and yet take high quality, spontaneous pictures. The Minox subminiature camera, in its various models, was for years the world’s most widely used spy camera. The ultralight aluminum shell Minox A/IIIs was produced from 1955 until 1969. Because of its small size (82 x 28 x 16 mm!), it was easy to conceal and operate in one hand. It could take excellent photographs of documents at close range and was a natural for clandestine photography. [Source: http://www.jamesbondlifestyle.com]
