While I was on the Dominican Republic and with the preparations for my brother’s birthday, I had the opportunity to test the Time-lapse capabilities of my new DJI Osmo Pocket.
I set the Osmo on a corner with the WI-FI module. I was connected with my iPad, so I could monitor what was happening and adjust accordingly. I also connected the WI-FI module to an external battery so I could record for a longer time.
I set up the pocket with a 16 ND Filter and Polarizer from Skyreat trying to combat the harsh Caribbean sun at the event.
Unfortunately, I had to leave for lunch and I didn’t set the time-lapse for enough time to capture the whole assembly of the stage.
I will have to say, that when I came back, the Osmo Pocket was extremely hot in part due to the fact that it was 79º F outside.
I let the device rest for a little bit and decided to take another stab at it.
This time, we were setting up the tables and the decorations for the party (you can see me there helping around). 30 minutes of recording at a 5 sec interval.
Overall, I am extremely satisfied with the Oslo Pocket. I was able to record my brother’s concert in its entirety (4K 60fps).
These are SOOC (straight out of camera) so no editing was done to them.
I am going to test the other capabilities, like the slo-mo and report back as I gain more knowledge of the camera.
I think DJI did a great job and the Osmo Pocket is going to be a game changer.
