DJI’s latest handheld gimbal, the Osmo Pocket,  costs just $349 and shoots 4K 60p video. It has a built-in touchscreen, a battery that lasts for two hours and an incredible variety of modes to shoot stabilized videos, motion timelapses, multi-row panoramic images and much more. You can even connect it to your mobile device and record video direct to the phone, whilst using the screen as a larger monitor.

For the bloggers out there, there’s an optional accessory to connect a proper microphone, as well as an underwater housing and an adapter to mount it to your pre-existing collection of Go-Pro mounts.

This looks like a ton of fun, and at a price point that’s $50 less than the new GoPro Hero 7 Black, I think this is going to steal quite a few sales from those people that have been using a GoPro for vlog-style content. Certainly the form-factor of the Osmo Pocket looks much more useable for handheld shooting, and the lens will give less distortion.

GoPro’s software stabilization in the new Hero 7 Black is pretty amazing, but only when light is bright. Initial side-by-side tests shot the Osmo Pocket to be much better!
