DJI Osmo Pocket 3 Key Features
The compact Osmo Pocket 3 employs a 1-inch CMOS sensor to perform even in challenging lighting. Moreover, it shoots in 4K at up to120 frames per sec. Additionally, via specialized image quality optimization, the device’s night shots can capture low-light scenes with more clarity and authentic color. What’s more, the camera will fine-tune the exposure for different skin tones to help deliver a clear, healthy complexion.
For professional-level creations, the Osmo Pocket 3 offers 10-bit D-Log M and 10-bit HLG color modes. Consequently, it can record landscapes with detail, presenting more accurate colors and vivid highlights. Furthermore, with 10-bit D-Log M, you benefit from one billion colors. Plus, 10-bit HLG (Hybrid Log Gamma) HDR provides a higher dynamic range, viewable on HDR-enabled equipment.
The device also introduces intelligent features. Its 2-inch, rotatable, color OLED touchscreen provides fingertip control. Moreover, DJI says that with the device’s full-pixel fast focusing, you “are ensured sharp focus even with quick-moving subjects.” Further, the camera introduces a product showcase mode for livestreaming and product showcasing. And with a three-axis mechanical stabilization, it helps ensure steady images during dynamic camera movements.
In addition, DJI’s ActiveTrack 6.0 offers multiple follow modes. For example, it offers face auto-detect and dynamic framing, for cinematic footage. Moreover, a built-in three-mic array reduces wind noise and captures omnidirectional stereo sound. DJI Mic 2 compatibility also enables dual-person recording for vlogs, interviews and livestreams.
Further, Glamour Effects 2.0 adds personalized beauty options, while the device’s automatic axis locks the gimbal in its storage position. Plus, specs state you can charge its built-in 1300mAh battery to 80% in 16 minutes. When fully charged, it will record up to 116 minutes of 4K/60-fps footage or up to 166 minutes of 1080p/24-fps footage.
The Osmo Pocket 3 livestreams in high definition as well as functions as a webcam for online meetings and video chats. Its built-in timecode function streamlines postproduction, so footage syncs between different cameras.
