The most obvious external change of the Osmo Pocket 3 is its new display, which moves between horizontal and vertical directions. This provides a significant improvement in video review, camera management, and customization, as menus and controls are easier to find and use on this display than the restrictive displays of the previous Pocket series.
The distorted display also works as a power switch for the camera – turning the display horizontally turns it on, and turns it vertically after a few seconds, although you have the option to disable this download. and use the device with a direct window. The touch screen is a pleasure to use, and we found it to be better than the traditional power button.
In terms of size and color, this is a 2-inch OLED panel, and it is bright and beautiful, with a very accurate color. We found it easy to use outdoors, even in the sun.
On the software front, we love the interface on the Osmo Pocket 3 – it’s very well designed. The companion app for DJI Mimo is also great, but we don’t like the device being registered using it. Such registration makes sense with DJI drones, but it should not be baked into a handheld camera.
It’s also worth noting that the Osmo Pocket 3 can be used for live streaming, and it’s an excellent camera for this purpose.
