Reply bonzology December 8, 2018 Blurry background SUCKS for vlogging Reply bonzology December 8, 2018 Non committal pussy! The Osmo pocket was exceedingly better than the rest of them, it was obvious. Quit trying to be all things to all people, it’s weak sauce. Reply tclarke971 December 8, 2018 Only going by online reviews, I hope dji can fix some of the focus and audio issues via firmware upgrades. Reply VD III December 8, 2018 Does other type C dongle work on osmo pocket like the ones xiami phones have? Reply gast December 8, 2018 The GoPro has the best audio, nice video and pretty nice stabilization, all in a rugged tiny package.

It's like 90% of the way there, but that last 10% is kils it. WTF were they thinking?

Reply Filip K. December 8, 2018 I'm gonna sit out the focus issue on the Osmo pocket. Untill then my Hero5 with G6 is staying. Reply Ayda Walsh December 8, 2018 Awesome review!! I was wondering about the Audio … This is perfect! Thank you so much! Reply Lawrence Beck December 8, 2018 In that first segment where you're walking with each camera the GoPro blows the highlights (white clouds on the horizon) and exaggerates the sky color to the point where it looks posterized. The DJ has by far the best color and dynamic range. Very revealing test. Thanks! Reply DANIEL Rogness December 8, 2018 Give me Osmo Pocket to convince me it's as good, or better, than GoPro HERO7 Black, because so far, I'm really not seeing it. Reply ZAKK_MENざっきメン December 8, 2018 各カメラの画角の違いが良くわかります、osmo pocket は少し標準画角に近いですね！使いやすそうでわかりやすかったです。 Reply Kasper Christensen December 8, 2018 What a camera. Just entered the competition. Going to the US for the trip of my life, Route 66. That would be perfect. Reply Eric Golden December 8, 2018 Sick I actually was wondering this myself..

Reply Jam Zhou December 9, 2018 vlog user/filmmaking amateur/beginner: pick osmo. extreme sports user: pick gopro. done Reply Reino Yu December 9, 2018 So, you didn’t even mention what iphone xs would be best for as if you didnt put it in this video. Iphone xs; best video quality and audio quality. Too bad its not stable on its own and requires a gimbal. Seeing it best for vlogging and cinematic videography.Dji osmo pocket: the white balance is cool, it does give reality to its footages. But dynamic range and highlights can be blown out. Problem with focus. And not the best audio. Good for vlogging and cinematic videography. Biggest plus is the pocket size and stabilisation on its own. Still needs a lot of work.Hero 7: great video and audio quality. Great stabilisation, and dynamic range isn’t too bad, although not the best. Cool for extreme sports and even just for vlogging. But the fish eye effect probably isnt the best for vlogging footages. Insta360: great for extreme sports and vlogging meant to be shared in social media. Reply Jacques de Waal December 9, 2018 Mind Blown!!! and I was saving up for the osmo plus! Looks like a game changer for a run gunner video minion 🙂 Reply Michael Andersen December 10, 2018 Do you have a Gopro 7 microphone adapter, and if so, will it work with the DJI Pocket?

Wind noise will probably blow out the Osmo audio. With an external Mic you can put a "dead cat" wind filter over the mic and the audio sounds excellent in wind. Reply Radian327 December 11, 2018 Who's up for reviewing GoPro vs Osmo through the "drop" test. Drop them on tile floor about 5 times and see how well the work afterwards…. The Osmo looks flimsy to me. If it drops and lands on the camera head. It's probably broken.

Reply Joel Navarro December 12, 2018 Awesome! I was wondering about the Osmo Pocket vs the Insta360 One X. I personally have the Insta360 and I love it! This is my first video with it…snowboarding set on 3K 100fps and edited with some hyperlapse and a Teal & Orange mLut in FCPX. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fYvEUk8ihhw&t=18s Reply Arghya XD December 12, 2018 It's Awesome…. I love it…. The footage is the proof… Reply Mature Adventure December 12, 2018 I woundering how they compare for panning? Reply always VLOGAN December 13, 2018 I’d be interested in low light film and the ability to make it more rugged, waterproof for swimming. Ps what’s the meaning behind your thin blue line wedding band? Reply OPツgamer BS December 13, 2018 Hey jeven dovey I love your vids and hard work keep it up Reply Lymeng December 13, 2018 Does it better than Hero7? Reply Wudang Academy December 15, 2018 Both the iPhone x and the GoPro 7 are not realistic looking. The 360 is close but the Osmo pocket has tighter metering – means it looks more realistic depending on the point of view. It looks like the Osmo pocket does something similar to spot metering in modern mirrorless. There are third party cpl filters which might help with the sky. Osmo pocket wins in terms of non-hdr realistic look. I can see that winning especially in indoors or good polarized scenes. For all that noobs who think the GoPro or iPhone is better: you need to use the proper light for the scene if you are shooting with professional equipment – the Osmo pocket might not be professional looking, but because it does not correct the scene it makes it look much more natural and in the hands of filmmakers who pay attention to light its a game changer. I do think the Osmo pocket is often misunderstood – it does not try to be the perfect vlog camera – it's more like an ultra-compact cinematic video maker – imagine: you can easily get multiple Osmo pockets and set up a scene – you got different angles and person tracking – which can reduce camera equipment and personal greatly. Reply Ptrck Caresosa December 16, 2018 Osmo pocket just attach it to your phone and attach your phone on your handheld tripod Reply IKNFLY666 December 19, 2018 The osmo pocket FOV looks tiny Reply Valerio Boccaccini December 21, 2018 I prefer insta 360… the video quality is NOT the best but i like the video features present Reply DRONE review man of all drones December 22, 2018 Great post man!!! I loved it!! Thanks 4 the giveaway 👍😁👍 Reply ToNeSpOT December 22, 2018 What does that attachment on the Osmo ? What used for? Reply Tom Nguyen December 27, 2018 my dji mimo is not pop up when I plug dji osmo pocket to the phone (with lightning connector provided) ? Reply MonBerry December 27, 2018 For its size osmo pocket is just awesome. Reply Meer Obaidulbarie December 27, 2018 Osmo Pocket has really bad focus. Hopefully that will be fixed with firmware updates before release…The size is very appealing to me for my minimalist style of travel and I think it works best for short cinematic footage. Just have to wait and see. Reply Mohammad Amaan Desai December 28, 2018 Hope to win this giveaway. Thanks broDJI osmo pocket is a ULTIMATE beast Reply red CORAL December 30, 2018 Give me one 🙂 Reply DAN SALAS AKLANON VLOG January 1, 2019 After 400 recharge your DJI pocket is no more. Reply Jabid Hasib January 2, 2019 Muy buena reseña. Reply Violet Henning January 4, 2019 Awesome video and thank you for sharing these valued tips with us Reply Phil Roos January 4, 2019 Jeven – thanks for this review. I had the OSMO Pocket but then returned and exchanged for the GoPro 7. What bugged me most is that microphone hole under the screen. That meant that if I was filming my wife doing her vlog, the mic would be facing the wrong direction. So, really interesting tech, but at the end of the day, yep, GoPro 7 wins out. Thanks again! Reply ssclone_714 January 6, 2019 What’s the name of the of the song at 1:50 ? Reply Jøn William January 8, 2019 It's really wow Reply Electric Dreams January 9, 2019 I don't know but imo Osmo looks like not a good product: has a terrible glitchy focusing (which is already a deal breaker), so so quality, not good dynamic diapason… Reply Dayang Diana January 11, 2019 Osemmm!! Reply Daniel Mills January 11, 2019 Great video, but why would you include the iPhone which is using a 3rd party gimble for a stabilization test? Reply Carmen and Brian January 11, 2019 Thanks for the honest review. Since my Osmo Pocket died after 15 days of use and I had to return it I'm looking for other options. I need something reliable. The GoPro 7 looks like a better option at this point for me. Reply Brooker Films January 14, 2019 I still can’t get over the size of the Osmo pocket! Insannneeee 🔥🔥 Reply Aldren Joy Banal January 15, 2019 I want to have one of DJI but I am poor and has no budget!!😭😭So sad.. Reply emul8us January 18, 2019 Would nice to know what frame rate your filming in. Reply Guiltygear008 January 29, 2019 When i pressed at the gear link i was hoping to find out what bracelets you where wearing. No seriously what brands are those 🙂 Reply David Blanton February 2, 2019 Have done some work with focal sensor research – you might want to try the osmo pocket without the sunglasses on. Should be an issue, I know – but might be worth a test. Thx for another great video. Reply The Dreampackers February 3, 2019 best for creation is insta360best for quality are gopro and osmothe winner is gopro.. wide angle instead of dji (but not like insta360)… quality like dji osmo (100% better than osmo) Reply Lord Aizen February 7, 2019 Question what gimbal you use for Xs max? Look pretty good Reply Colin Mcnab February 7, 2019 I do find these comparisons of the pocket with an IPhone stupid and pointless. One is an over priced phone and the other a well priced camera gimbal with 4K 60fps video that you can only get in high end expensive cameras. Reply THE DAF FAMILY February 13, 2019 I'm coming back to blogging and I want to upgrade my camera. I think I'm going towards the osmo. Reply Marco Fioretti February 14, 2019 iphone xs max's dynamic range so much better than other cams, that all have blown out sky Reply Rion Johnson February 16, 2019 Do all of you guys just have your own YouTube channels and take turns recording the same videos? 😛 That other dude just did almost the same comparison video. lol Reply Juru Ketik February 16, 2019 For Quality iPhone is The WinnerFor Price DJI Osmo Pocket is The Winner Reply WhatEver405 February 17, 2019 gopro for the go, bro he… he… he… Reply Mehmet Alexandru February 20, 2019 After thousands of review watched, I decided to have a Osmo Pocket ‘cause it’s just awesome and a GoPro 7 Black for the time when I do water sports. Both are very good but created to do different things in the end. So in my opinion, the best is the combination mentioned above. Reply Yoga4life February 25, 2019 Best seems to be GoPro and iPhone, the ista sucks and the osmo looks and sounds really disappointing. Reply MonBerry March 2, 2019 i dont think people should compare the osmo to the go pro hero. I dont think its purpose is for high action footage. its was made for mostly vlogging and amateur users I think its perfect for it. Reply Saav Magician March 3, 2019 I think they're all brilliant of course all designed for different things. GoPro is designed for hostile environments Osmo pocket for cinematic footage on the fly360 Footage is almost like a super version of the GoPro Reply UNBOXER BOY March 5, 2019 Hero 7 is the best because it has its official attachment Reply Mr.Sunshine March 6, 2019 I have been working on vlogs with my Samsung S8 and a boom mic. I was considering the DJ Osmo pocket, but after this review I feel like getting a gimble would be better. Great review, Thanks!

Next time make "bicycle vs elephant vs chair vs barbra streisand", same point ;]… Reply Video Gigs March 17, 2019 i just bought a go pro hero 7 today….and i am just loving it… Reply Dacci Pucci March 25, 2019 I don't get why the One X is so hyped, the image quality looks horrible in every video I saw so far. Reply Chris Parayno March 26, 2019 I have to say the 360 is the best route if you have the time to play in post. Straight out from camera though, i'd have to give it to the osmo pocket. great job. Reply Andrés Maldonado March 30, 2019 What a bad review.. Reply J G April 4, 2019 I find it particularly interesting how videos like this one contain somewhat subtle yet noticeable edits seaming together commentary content. I fully comprehend and appreciate the amount of work and degree of effort that is required to produce quality content on YouTube these days but If you want to be taken seriously, record your commentary in one take, unless you are switching camera angles. I don't endorse nor recommend any of the devices reviewed here – just my $.02 worth. Reply Hickory Namlet April 5, 2019 The iPhone video is trash, way too much over processing, artifacts and without the gimbel it would be all over the place… at least $1200. Reply Dirk Whitebreast April 22, 2019 What model gimbal for iPhone did you use? Osmo Mobile 2? Very solid review. Thanks! Reply Silverfox May 1, 2019 +iphone costs 3x more than the osmo, with the gimbal more like 3.5 x – then the physical size of the phone and gimbal, not to mention having to balance the f**king gimbal every time you turn it on. Whats's the point? I mean for simple vlogging it's a bulky, heavy, over priced set-up and for something more advanced than simple vlogging. NO pro user is going to go that way. So, surely it comes down to the other three. I've had a phone on a gimbal, hated every dam time I used it. I've had the Hero 7 Black (gave it away), love, love, love my Osmo, although I will admit I use it 90% of the time attached to a lightweight selfie stick. Great value for money and so easy to use. Reply Pedal Leve May 25, 2019 Ficou legal a comparação mas ficaram como imagens muito diferentes umas das outras. A GoPro se destacou com facilidade. VALEU! Reply palankaizs June 15, 2019 Hi There. I want to put a camera on my rc plane and hesitate between 2 cameras. Insta360 One x and Gopro Hero 7 black. My expectation is to get a stabilized image. 1440p resolution is enough, but it should be perfect. I don't have any cameras right now. I know Gopro is a better quality, Insta looks 360 degrees, but these two qualities I can't compare when I choose. That's why I expect up to 1440p.What do you think which would be the right choice? Reply Joshua Black July 31, 2019 iPhone had the best picture Reply Where’s Wayne August 20, 2019 So these are currently the only real competitors to the pocket? Reply fivezeroniner August 28, 2019 I have GoPro, 1x and pocket.I use pocket more than gp and 1x.. Only because you don't need anything but pocket.. gp and 1x needs a stick or other gears most of the time. My 1x is like my shoot and forget gear, just find a scenic place with a lot of interesting happening and pair it with some good camera movements. I use gp for the more daring or dangerous shots.. Reply UPPER ROOM RELOADED September 7, 2019 Pleaseeeeez someone tie this mans hands down!Ranger(: Reply m77ast December 27, 2019 Why have I seen negative reviews of the osmo pocket in the past about distortions and bumps etc. These -ve reviews literarily stopped me from buying one. This thing looks awesome. I wish they would put that hassleblad lens on drone on this little thing. Reply Add a Comment Cancel reply Your email address will not be published.
