The camera shoots 12MP stills at video up to 4K at 60fps, allowing you to capture smooth cinematic shots on the fly.

The DJI Osmo Pocket is an impressively small camera on a three-axis gimbal to stabilize your video and photos. Once your device is connected, a new dedicated DJI Mimo app will automatically open - this will enable you to monitor footage, while an in-app menu will offer a variety of intelligent features and recording modes.

The Osmo Pocket's handle, naturally, comes with a record button, a USB-C port for charging and a magnetic strip for pairing a slew of accessories, including an Extension Rod, a Wireless Module, a charging case and a controller wheel that gives you remote access to the camera.

Osmo Pocket has NightShot, a tripod-free night mode with 2-3s handheld long exposures. Added to the Pocket's base price of $349, this is an investment that could add up quickly.

The device is only four inches tall, but features a stabilized camera, a 1-inch touchscreen, and a whole bevy of smart features. The company took the camera sensors from its Mavic Air drone, upgraded it a bit, and slapped it onto a tiny gimbal you can carry around in your pocket.

And while this seems like a joke, Macaulay promises that he will legally change his name to whichever name the visitors select. To drive interest in the site, Culkin revealed that he's conducting a poll where fans can suggest his new legal middle name.

"According to DJI's spec sheet, the camera on the Osmo Pocket uses a 1/2.3" CMOS sensor and an F2.0 lens that has a field of view of 80-degrees.

The Osmo Pocket's mechanical gimbal differs from the electronic image stabilization found in cameras such as the GoPro Hero7; that camera did really well on our tests, but it remains to be seen how well it will compare to the Osmo Pocket. I especially like that I can manually move the camera by dragging my thumb across the phone's screen. In addition to helping you edit video on the go, you can use the Mimo app to transfer photos and videos to your phone, as well as control settings including exposure control and time lapses.

The Osmo Pocket's 875 mAh battery should last for about two hours when shooting 1080p video, and one hour when shooting 4K.

The Osmo Pocket also includes a small touchscreen that allow users to alternate between different modes and options. That's roughly comparable to the GoPro7 at both resolutions.

Even with the smaller camera, the Osmo Pocket is no slouch when it comes to image quality.
