Up close and hands-on with DJI’s Osmo Pocket gimbal

I’ll admit that I’ve warmed up pretty quickly to the Osmo Pocket. The original post from earlier today is pretty skeptical, owing in no small part to the price point. And while I stand by the earlier assessment that $349 is prohibitively expensive for the consumer market the company appears to be going after, I’ve become fairly enamored after a couple of hours with the device. We plan on doing something a bit more thorough with our video team in a couple of weeks, but in the time I spent wit...

DJI goes pocket size for its latest gimbal

Hand-held gimbals have largely been the realm of pro videographers. But DJI is looking to change things up with an ultra-portable take on its popular Osmo line. The Osmo Pocket is a four-inch-tall version of the drone maker’s camera stabilizer that can either be plugged into an iPhone or utilized as a standalone. At $349 it’s not exactly cheap — in fact, it’s about twice what the Osmo Mobile 2 is currently going for on Amazon. That’s due in part to the inclusion of a one-inch touchscreen tha...

Wandering the Faroe Islands – The Land Born of the Mist

Never let anyone tell you that the Faroe Islands are the same as Iceland, Norway or Scotland. They’re a unique destination with its own raw drama that is unlike anything I’ve had the delight of exploring previously.

We got lucky and were able to visit Mykines and to catch it during brilliant weather. Photo...
