    There's a new firmware coming 'soon', where a lot of Pro settings are accessible without connecting the phone to the Pocket.

    I know, I'm teasing :)

    As the sun is out im going to take the Pocket for a walk. I'll post something if it comes out ok (I'm still learning).

    I think that's the point, I would rather see some footage that one of you guys produce, maybe not knowing the best way to use it etc, just real world use.

    Here's a very short video from the Pocket. It was too cold to stay out :o

    As above I'm still learning with it, and the only issue I have is the focus 'pumping'. Hopefully DJI will fix it in a firmware.

    New app & firmware available :)

    v01.04.00.20

    1. Added pro setting when using Osmo Pocket without DJI Mimo.
    2. Added option to switch between AFC and AFS when using Osmo Pocket without DJI Mimo.
    3. Added Cine-Like color mode to video mode.
    4. Fixed issue: after powering off, the gimbal attitude of some devices was in an abnormal position to fit into the cover.
    5. Optimized face detection.
    6. Reduced focus pulsing in some situations, such as when shooting the sky or at night.
    7. Increased autofocus speed when moving Osmo Pocket quickly.

    Great to see DJI continuously improving the device. Hoping to see some real world examples of the latest fixes to see if there are still any more major annoyances.

    I'm getting the itch also. Was looking at a gimbal for my Pixel phone but the firmware update has fixed a considerable amount of things with the Pocket.

    Anyone updated theirs and got positive things to say?

    The latest update has improved the Pocket. Because of the weather I havent used mine much lately, but Ive been impressed with the pics & video from it.

    On their site, in the FAQ there's a question about using an external mic. The reply is, "Yes, you can achieve this with the DJI Osmo Pocket 3.5mm Adapter." Is this something that comes with it, or you have to buy additionally?

    Grrrr I wish they would release the kit which includes the mount, wheel and wireless module. Been waiting since I ordered my pocket osmo back in dec.

    Thought it would be with me by the end of Jan at the very least but looks like I may not have it till end of feb :/.

    Ok another note I’ve had to send mine back due to the gimbal motor going faulty. Turned it on one day as I wanted to take some motion lapse videos and it make this funny whirring sound then stopped with the camera at weird angle.

    Should have my replacement this coming week as they have exchanged it for a new one.

    Although small, you can get some good pictures from it. Not perfect but a 3x3 pano.

    awesome will have to get round to updating mine soon.

    Finally got my pocket expansion kit with the wireless module and control wheel. Now it feels and acts much better, with more control when planning and tilting etc. Also I can now connect the osmo to the phone without connecting to the phone physically with the wireless module.
