DJI Osmo Pocket 4K Handheld Gimbal Camera $288 + Delivery (Free C&C) (Was $399) @ Harvey Norman

180

OW recently had this camera cheaper but almost all stores didn’t have any stock.

For those who are not Harvey Norman fans, feel free to use this to get a JB Price Match. (Still $389 at JB).

Description
With its 3-axis optimally stabilised camera and compact design, the DJI Osmo Pocket lets you capture impressive pictures and cinematic footage without worrying about storing bulky items while on-the-go. It also has a runtime of up to 140 minutes, making it a powerful and convenient device for amateur and professional photographers/videographers alike.

      I’m not a fan either but willing to use his prices to support the competition.

      There's 22 million reasons not to.

        apparently he paid it back.

        I do question how much pressure there was to pay it back.

    Lets call it $300ish, for sanity.
    For about 33% more you can get the pocket 2.

    The decision should rely on what lighting you record in. There is no substitute for a larger sensor.

    Basically, if you intend to do car shows with spotty artificial lighting, night walks, dusk or dawn hikes, etc. The pocket 2 is worth it.

    Otherwise, the pocket 1 is good, but id look into the Fimi Palm, before you make your decision.

      Fimi Palm, another one to look and compare now!

      •  

        The tldr is that the palm is a more usable wide view, if you intend to have yourself on screen.

        The pocket1 is fine for 'walking blogs', and having a real focusing sensor, means you can get some foreground/background blur. Its sensor is also a slight step up in low light from the palm (but nothing compared to the pocket2).

        Basically, if you intend to shoot specific objects, the pocket1 is great, its slightly clearer and can pull foreground/background focus.

        But if you intend to shoot 'a scene' without a dedicated camera man, the palm is better.

        Objectively, of course :)

        I researched them for MONTHS; I ended up with an Osmo pocket Action, and a Gimbal.

          Thanks for that. Which gimbal did you went for? I am also considering this option.

            @saikatsg: The isteady pro3.

            Its good, because I can remove the battery from the osmo, and use the gimbal as a power bank (and meter).

            Then, in case i need a camera in a hurry, i still have a handheld battery ready if need be.

            Though I warn you, its very much a geek toy.
            It works "great" out of the box, but if you want it to be amazing, you should spend the time adjusting torque on your motors, and tracking speed and such.

            Its one of the reasons I liked it, because I am that nerd, haha.

            Though, it does stop being a pocketable size.
            So seriously consider that.

            If you intend to "go out filming" it doesnt matter, because its still small (about the size of a nintendo switch case; the camera can stay on, in the gimbal case), but if you want something to whip out when an opportunity strikes, the Palm is the smarter choice.

        Fimi Palm is better value for money for sure. Unfortunately I got a dud Fimi Palm when I bought from Banggood a month ago. Battery issue. Returned it and hv to bear return postage $21.90.

          Thats unfortunately within ACL. Some companies are just "nicer" about it.

          I love banggood, probably spend more than 10k there furnishing and building my home. (Taps, door handles, etc).

          Though if you want to be covered for no-out-of-pocket, thats where ebays new policies are amazing.

          I had a seller demand I pay postage on a wrong item.
          Contacted ebay via live chat; "ebay will cover that, no problem, ive emailed you a label"

          Simple.

      Is this good for sports recording like kids soccer match?

        If you are running along the sidelines keeping up with the action, it should do a good job of stabilising whatever you shoot.

        If you're just sitting up in a stand, you will probably miss having any sort of zoom control.

        It does do object tracking at 4k50 or lower resolutions, but I'd bet if you've got a bunch of kids wearing the same uniform running around together on a field it's going to get confused.

          Agreed. Better off with a cheap dslr with magiclantern firmware or such.

          That said; recording wide at 4k and cropping in, assuming your TV is 1080p is still very clear.
