    The description of DJI Osmo Pocket may cause some problems since although we've already discussed many gimbals and sports cameras, we've never dealt with these two devices being permanently connected. That's why we're entering the unknown territory and it remains a mystery whether DJI's idea will find its regular place on the market and whether we will find similar devices from other producers.


    DJI Osmo Pocket is a small (12cm) 3-axis gimbal with a fixed sports camera, which is equipped with the 1/2.3'' 12MP sensor. With the use of it, we will be able to record films in 4K with the speed of 60f/s (100Mbps). Slow motion films will be recorded with the speed of 120f/s in Full HD. The camera is equipped with two microphones – one at the bottom of the device and one at the back. Recording sound is supported by the vibration and disruption reduction system.

    On the gimbal, we will find a 1'' screen with the use of which we can control the device. Still, full control over the device can be achieved thanks to a smartphone with the DJI Mimo application, connected to the USB-C port.


    The most interesting film modes of Osmo Pocket include Active Track (the mode of tracking an object which is moving within a frame) and Face Track (the mode of maintaining the sharpness of the filmed face). This is, of course, not everything – we also have Timelapse, Motionlapse, FPV Mode and Panorama modes. The Osmo Pocket users will be able to use additional Story Mode and Pro Mode functions on the smartphone's screen. The Story Mode consists of 10 templates with pre-programmed camera movement. When the recording ends, the mode autonomously creates a ready video sequence of the templates. The Pro Mode gives the user full control over the film settings.

    DJI Osmo Pocket has an in-built rechargeable battery which, according to the producer, should last for 2 hours of continuous recording in 4K.


    Osmo Pocket, as the very name suggests, may be put in a pocket since its dimensions are 121.9 × 28.6 × 36.9mm and it weighs 116g. The device is already available on sale and it costs $350. DJI has also presented a series of accessories which expand the possibilities of the device. They can be found on the website: dji.com.

      DJI is not giving a break to its rivals since two new drones: Mavic 2 Pro and Mavic 2 Zoom have just appeared on the market. A characteristic property of the "Pro" version is a 1" sensor and the "Zoom" model is equipped with the zoom lens with the range of 24-48mm.

      1). DJI Mavic 2 Pro
      Mavic 2 Pro is equipped with the 20MP camera, with the 28mm lens and the light of f/2.8, prepared in cooperation with Hasselblad. The camera's aperture can be shut up to the value of f/11. We will also have a 1" CMOS sensor with the ISO ranges of 100 - 6400 or 100 - 12800 in the photography mode. Mavic 2 Pro camera will register films in 4K HDR with the speed of 30f/s, the bit rate of 100Mb/s and it will save them in the 10-bit Dlog-M profile. The films will be saved with the use of HEVC / H.256 codec.

      2). DJI Mavic 2 Pro
      Mavic 2 Zoom falls slightly behind when it comes to the camera's parameters but, as the very name suggests, its use is a bit different. The "Zoom" model is equipped in a classic way, with the 1/2.3" sensor with the resolution of 12MP. But it's not the sensor that is the most important thing - the camera's lens has 24-48mm zoom with the light of f/2.8 - 3.8. Thanks to this, we will obtain a much more film-like perspective compression but also, for instance, the dolly zoom effect. The "Zoom" will record films in 4k with the speed of 30f/s and the bit rate of 100Mb/s, but without HDR and 10 bits. A possibility of taking 48MP photographs is a curiosity - the camera will achieve them thanks to 'gluing' together 9 photographs.

      3). DJI Mavic 2 Zoom
      New DJI drones fly with the speed of 72km/s and they can remain in air for 31 minutes, making significantly less noise. They are equipped with the most modern omni-directional obstacle-detection system and a modernized tracking system thanks to which the drones will be better at maintaining sharpness of the filmed shots. The drones can now expect in what place and when the filmed object is going to appear from behind an obstacle and maintain it in the center of the frame.

      4). DJI Mavic 2 Zoom
      The drones are equipped with a wide range of filming modes and pre-programmed camera shots. The producer assures that the live image in Full HD will reach us without interruptions even from 8 kilometers. Both devices have 8GB of in-built memory.

      5). DJI Mavic 2 Accessories
      DJI Mavic 2 Pro and Mavic 2 Zoom are already available and they cost respectively $1,449 and $1,249.

      Many of you may not surprised with the fact that DJI presents a new drone every half a year. This time it’s Phantom 4 Pro V2.0, which looks exactly like its predecessor which looked exactly like its predecessor which looked…
      Still, Phantom 4 Pro V2.0 is significantly different than the previous model – its blades are 60% quieter and the data transmission is handled by OcuSync. The rest is the same as in the predecessor which was the same as...

      1). DJI Phantom 4 Pro V2.0 
      The data transmission system Lightbridge, used for instance in Phantom 4 Pro and Phantom 4 Advanced, has been replaced by a newer solution, OcuSync HD. OcuSync is supposed to ensure data transmission for a distance of 7km and to automatically choose the band between 2.4 GHz and 5.8 GHz. OcuSync can also be connected to DJI Goggles RE.

      2). DJI Phantom 4 Pro V2.0 
      As has been mentioned before, most of the Phantom 4 Pro V2.0 specification remained unchanged in comparison to its predecessors. The drone is equipped with the 20MP, 1’’ Exmor R CMOS sensor and a lens, with the focal length equivalent of 24mm and the light of f/2.8, adapted for the use in aerial photography. The optical system consists of 8 elements placed in 7 groups, among which 2 are aspherical lenses.

      3). DJI Phantom 4 Pro V2.0 
      Phantom 4 Pro V2.0 registers videos in 4K with the speed of 60f/s and it uses H.264 codec. The image is recorded with the use of D-Long Cine-D profiles, which enable further modifications of the material. Similarly, the images are saved in Adobe DNG.

      The Flight Autonomy system is yet another thing which won’t be new to the owners of the older DJI drones. Thanks to the system, they will not have to take their new “toy” from the tree or collect its fragments from around the tree. The ActiveTrack system is supposed to ensure that our drone tracks us, or other moving objects, in a way planned in advance by, for instance, making circles around the object.

      4). DJI Phantom 4 Pro V2.0 - Specification Comparison
      People willing to buy DJI Phantom 4 Pro V2.0 will have to pay $1500. The dedicated controller costs $300 and a set consisting of the drone, the controller and DJI Goggles costs $2,200.
      DJI Mavic Air is the next, even more compact, version of the DJI Mavic Pro drone, which is possibly going to revolutionize the drone market once again. The latest Mavic links both the advanced functions of Mavic Pro with the compact construction of Spark.

      The 3-axis gimbal, which is newly-designed and even more compact, is responsible for image quality in Mavic Air. It is supposed to offer smoother movements. The camera, equipped with the 12Mp 1/2.3’’ sensor, and the lens with the equivalent of 24mm f/2.8, have been mounted on the gimbal.

      1). DJI Mavic Air 
      With the use of the device, one will be able to make films in 4K, but only with the speed up to 30f/s. In HD, we will have the available speed of 120f/s. The films are saved with the bitrate of 100MB/s.

      When it comes to the new functions, now we can make spherical panoramas and the Boomerang function, with the use of which the drone flies around a given object like a boomerang, is also available. The drone can be controlled using gestures with the use of the Smart Capture function.

      All these things are assisted by the improved system of active object-tracking, which detects up to 16 moving objects at once, and 6 cameras placed in the front, at the back, and on the bottom of the device, which support the obstacle detection and avoidance system.

      As the first drone in history, DJI Mavic Air also possesses 8GB of built-in memory, which is surely going to be helpful when we forget our memory card or if the card becomes full.

      2). DJI Mavic Air 
      The parameters of the device are impressive: the maximum speed of 68 km/h, the possibility of flying up to 5000 meters and the effective range of 2.5 km. The flight time is 21 minutes. It places the new drone in between Mavic Pro and Spark.

      However, the greatest asset of the new DJI device is its construction. With the dimensions of 168×184×64mm and 168×83×49mm after assembly and the weight of 430g, it may be hidden in the jacket’s pocket without any problem. The remote control has also been re-designed, and it’s even more compact now.

      3). DJI Mavic Air 
      DJI Mavic Air will be available on sale in January and it will cost $800, which is a very attractive price in comparison to the offered functions.
