DJI Osmo Pocket Complete Menu System Review

DJI Osmo Pocket Complete Menu System Review


Hey this is Rob. I am going to go over the menu system on the
osmo pocket. There are two menu systems on the osmo pocket. One menu system is when you attach the osmo
pocket on your smart device and use the mimo app. And the other menu system is on the camera
itself. And I am going to be going over the menu system
on the camera itself. And I’m recording this intro on the osmo
pocket using the selfie mode. Ok, here we go. So the most common thing you are going to
be doing is switching modes. From photo mode to Pano mode. Thus, I will cover that first. To switch modes on the osmo pocket, swipe
from right to left. Currently I am in Video mode. These are the different modes. Photo, Video, Slow Motion, Timelapse, and
Pano. We will start on Photo Mode. Those three dots on the right means that there
are settings associated with this mode and you want to swipe those dots to the left to
go into the settings for this photo mode. The bar to the left will take you back to
the camera so you can start using the photo mode. Looking at the photo settings. Ratio is the aspect ratio that you want when
shooting photos. There are 3 different aspect ratios, 16:9,
4:3 and 3:2. This countdown is the timer. You have Off, 3 seconds, 5 seconds and 7 seconds. Swiping to go into the camera. Now swipe again to change modes. Going to videomode. As you can see it is very sensitive the touch
screen and it is very easy to overshoot the mode that you want. Video Mode, I will swipe those 3 dots to the
left. We have resolution and frames per second. For resolution you have the choice between
1080p with 16:9 aspect ratio and 4K with 16:9 aspect ratio. Frames per second for both of these are 30
and 60. OK, going back. And looking at the next mode. Slow Motion Video Mode. Swiping the three dots. Speed, one speed 1080p 4x. Lets go to the next mode. Timelapse Mode. Notice that there are no 3 dots on the right
for settings. The settings for timelapse are made when you
enter the timelapse camera mode. And I will show that shortly. And we have motion lapse. Motion lapse is a panning timelapse done in
camera. First lets take a look at timelapse. The settings for timelapse are located in
this blue square located on the lower left corner. I´ll tap on it. On the left is interval and on the right is
recording time. The interval starts at 3 seconds and goes
up to 60 seconds. It is interesting that the interval starts
at 3 seconds. Most people like to use a 1 second interval. Duration, you have the infinity sign, so that
means continuous shooting until you press the red dot recording button again to stop
recording. Lowest recording time is 5 minutes, all the
way up to 5 hours recording time. 5 hours, will the battery last that long? Recording normal video the battery last 2
hours. Let’s go to Motion lapse. When you tap on Motion lapse it gives you
this diagram. Remember, a motionlapse is a timelapse that
pans across an area. This diagram indicates that you need to set
the beginning and ending points of your pan by physically moving the lens on the gimbal. Tap OK. In the lower left hand corner is a blue box. Tap on it to set the interval and recording
duration. After setting your interval and duration,
tap next in the lower right hand corner. On the bottom we have set a 13 second interval
with a 5 minute recording duration. Up top you see a 1 and a 2. We are going to set the first starting point
for the lens where we want the pan to begin. I am physically moving the gimbal with my
hand to the view I want first. Then you tap on that plus in the center of
the screen. Then that blue x backspace symbol in the upper
right lights up. If you want to reset the starting point, tap
on that backspace symbol. Now move the lens gimbal to the ending point
of the pan and press the plus in the center of the screen. And the green check mark appears, indicating
that you are all set to go to the motionlapse mode and press the record button. But I am going to press that backspace blue
X in the upper right. Now we can reset are number 2 spot for the
ending position of the pan. Or tap the backspace again to reset everything. I am going to get out of here by swiping,
and lets take a look at the Pano mode. And swipe the 3 dots for the settings. There are two different types of Panoramics,
a 180 degree panoramic, which is the traditional one. And a 3×3. A 3×3 is 3 photos up top and 3 photos on bottom
stichted together. I´ll go back. And go into the photo mode. I am going to swipe from left to right to
view my recorded media, photos and videos. I have 3 photos. Swipe from left to right again to delete an
image or the heart is to add an image as a favorite. I’ll tap on the delete file. Tap OK. Now I have two images. I will set an image as a favorite. And swipe to go back to photo mode. Looking at the menu when you swipe from down
to up. This icon here will recenter the gimbal and
lens. I’ll tap on it. The gimbal is recentering. It is finished recentering. Swiping up again. This is a fast follow and a slow follow. This will set if the gimbal moves fast or
slow. In fast follow, the gimbal responds faster,
but more suddenly. In slow follow, the gimbal responds slower,
but the movement is smoother. If you are taking photos, you might want to
change this to fast follow. And this symbol in the lower right. The gimbal on the DJI Osmo has 3 axes. A pan, tilt and row axes. This icon will give you some control on which
axes will do the following. I’ll tap on it. Follow, the pan and tilt axes will follow. I’ll tap on it again. Tilt Locked, only the pan axes follows. I’ll tap on it again. This is FPV, FPV stands for First Person View. All 3 axes will follow. You will have to experiment with the three
modes. In the upper right hand corner is the flip
camera icon or selfie mode. It is telling me that tracking is unavalbe
in FPV. In selfie mode the osmo pocket has an automatic
face track, except if you are in FPV mode. So I will go back and change to follow mode. And tap on the selfie icon again. There, the face track is on and the gimbal
will follow the movement of my face as I move back and forth. I’ll go back and tap on that flip camera
icon again. One more set of menus. Swiping down. Swiping down will give you a different set
of options depending if you are in photo mode, video mode or timelapse mode. We will begin with Photo mode first. Swiping down in photo mode. From here swipe from right to left. This smiley face symbol here is the Glamour
effects icon. This is only available in photo mode. When the icon is smiling, the effect is on. Tap on it to turn it off. When it is off the icon looks like this. This is the system settings icon. Every mode will have this system settings. Tap on it to go into system settings. In the upper left it tells you how much battery
life you have. The bottom left is to turn on tilt control. Tilt control works when the osmo is attached
to a smart device. It allows you to control the gimbal by sliding
your finger on the attached smart device. DJI calls this a virtual joystick. In the lower right you have different time
settings for the Auto Power Off. In the upper right is to calibrate the gimbal. Make sure your osmo pocket is on a flat surface
before you calibrate it. To calibrate the gimbal tap on it. I will show you what happens. You can’t see it here, but on the right
next to cancel it says OK. Tap on OK. There is a countdown because after you touch
OK, the camera may shake a little, so it has a 3 second countdown so if there was any shaking
of the camera, it gives it time to stop shaking. The camera is going thru the calibration process,
I will not speed this up so you can see how long it take to calibrate the osmo pocket. They do have a status bar across the bottom
to show the percent completion. The gimble starts to move. OK, the gimbal is calibrated. Going over to the next screen. In the upper left, it gives you the remaining
capacity of your SD card. I have a 64 GB card in this and I currently
have 58.9 GB remaining. In the lower left, is Anti Flicker. Prevent the flickering of lights appearing
in the video when shooting indoors. You have two choices, 50 Hertz and 60 Hertz. Choose 60 Hertz for the USA and 50 Hertz for
many other countries around the world. In the upper right is Accesories. This is when you have DJI Osmo Pocket accessories
attached to the Osmo Pocket. I will tap on more in the lower right. Here is where to change language, Reset the
camera and camera information such as the current firmware version. I will swipe up and get out of here. Staying in photo mode, check out the other
system settings. This icon is for when the osmo is attached
to a smart device. Tap on this icon to choose full screen display
or letterbox display on your smart device. The touch screen brightness control on the
osmo pocket. It has 3 levels of touch screen brightness. Ok, lets go to Video mode. Swiping from left to right. Quality. The 3 stars here in quality indicates superfine
video quality. This option is only available in this mode,
video mode. You have two choices, standard quality and
superfine quality. Tap on it to change quality. The one star is standard quality. Tap on it again, it gives you a message before
changing to Superfine Quality. Shooting Superfine video may cause device
to generate excessive heat. You may have seen other youtube videos talking
about how warm the osmo pocket gets. It is due to this, shooting video in superfine
quality. Tap on OK to confirm. This system settings will be the same in all
modes. Lets go to another mode. In slo mo mode all you have are system settings
when you swipe down in this mode, so I will skip slo mo. Going to time lapse mode. And swiping down. Now swiping from right to left. This setting is only avaible in timelapse
and motion lapse modes. You can choose to save only the converted
timelapse video or both the converted timelapse video and the images used to make that time
lapse. Choosing this photo and film strip icon will
perserve both the photos and converted timelapse video. Choosing this film strip icon will only save
the converted timelapse video. OK thats the only differences between the
swipe down feature in those modes. If you like this video, please give it a thumbs
up and please subscribe to this channel.

  1. Can I ask a question regarding how you made this video, cause it’s a perfect example of what I don’t know how to do. The narration of the menus was all done as voice over in post- correct? So how did you sync what you were saying with what you filmed earlier? I know it’s an amateur question, but I cannot seem to find the answer. If I had to guess, I would guess film a sequence of menu swipes, and then run and pause (freeze frame?) the video until you made the point you wanted to verbally, then continue to run the video.
    I’m using final cut but only as much as I can learn here.
    Thanks for any advice….

  2. Haven’t looked to see if anyone else mentioned this, so forgive me if they have, but you can avoid the swipe sensitivity if you simply TAP the next mode until you get to the one you want. Have to check the rest of your vid, but so far, great info! Thanks!

  3. damn I was hoping you could record 1080p at the 120fps and it save the video as is and then use twixtor to slow the footage down, such a shame, so looks like the 120fps is automatically slowed down :/

  4. Thanks lots for your time going through it's features. You're the first video I've come across, on this type of Pocket tutorial. Happy New Year & all the best:)

  5. Some comments as you speak –

    – might be worth mentioning that for long timelapses you can attach an external power supply to the bottom of the Pocket (perhaps mounted on a tripod using a spring loaded mic clip with thread adapter, very cheap).
    – I've explained the different gimbal modes to others as follows. FPV mode makes the Pocket work much like a normal camera so you can point it tilted up towards the sky or down towards you feet, and you can pan it horizontally, or you can rock it side to side so the horizon becomes crooked. It is perhaps the least useful mode, but all movement is still dampened and more stable than an unstabilized camera. Follow mode is the same except you can't rock it side to side, so the camera will always make sure the horizon is level without you having to check for that on the tiny screen. Tilt locked mode is the same as Follow mode, except you can no longer tip the camera towards the sky or down to your feet. Use "Recenter" to level it, or the little tilt slider at the right side of the screen to change the angle of tilt and keep it there. This mode is very useful when walking along because you can largely leave the camera to look after itself without checking the screen, even holding it like a flashlight at your side.
    – Your description of the "tilt control" menu item is incorrect. This option turns on or off the slider on the right side of the Pocket's own screen. It also makes visible an indicator on the left showing you how fast the tilt is happening. It's not related to the app at all.
    – Your description of the letter box / square menu option is also incorrect. This setting determines the display on the Pocket itself, again, nothing to do with the app.
    – Superfine seems to have no signficant effect on the video according to most reviewers, and as you say, makes the device run hotter and creates larger files.

  6. Settings/accessories/wireless module. swipe left you will see 2.4g/5.8g and reset it's set on 5.8G, i have a note 9 and it works perfectly with the wireless, but my samsung 6 and NVIDIA Shield tablet both connected up but the camera was not showing in the screen what i had to do to have them fully functional was change from 5.8G to 2.4G then you see what the camera sees. Hope this helps.

  7. Great great intro video love the details. Im Hoping you'll do a video on step by step on how to up load a video to Facebook and/or YouTube.

  8. Thank you very much for making this Tutorial… Your explanaitions helped me tremendously… I will def watch this again & again… Thumbs up & Subscribed…

  9. Can you lock the focus on the osmo itself. I’m having terrible focus problems I am using the latest firmware.

  10. Hi
    Great camera but i didnot found the slowmotion option ??
    Is there is and apps or update , buy the way i bought my osmo pocket befor 6 months .
    Can you help me 😥 .

  11. thanks. very helpful vid. , just advice …. relax brother because you have that creepy look !!!! put some shades pls

  12. This is the first video I clicked on to get some more idea of my Osmo Pocket and man am I glad I did. Great video, very informative giving a great basic understanding of what all the functions do.

  13. 3:15 It's now down to 2 seconds. My Osmo Mobile 2 starts at a half second. 3:35 You can do 5 hours if the Osmo Pocket is plugged into a power bank.

  14. I subscribed to you way back because of your great Sony videos, now i bought the Osmo pocket, and found you also have grwat video on it, im starting to think youre camera-stalking me 🤣🤣🤣. Nice video anyway!

  15. I just bought the Osmo Pocket. Please inform your subscribers that it won't work right out of the box. You have to have a cell phone to activate it. It will not work on an iPad. It will only work on certain phones. Very deceiving because it says it will work on IOS and Android phones. So, I talked too DJI support, and I ended up buying another iPhone that is compatible with Osmo. Very frustrating and costly.
