How about using your IOS and Android Phone with your Osmo Pocket?
We will get a Lightning and USB-C connector. That will give you the option to use your cell phone as a screen that is bigger and it also for charging on the move.
The Record Button and The Mode Button are in the bottom. As we had with the Osmo Mobile 2 mode button will be used to change modes and control the gimbal.
Which Is Better, the GoPro Hero7 Black or Osmo Pocket Camera?
Honestly, even though DJI would like you to believe that this is a Hero 7 Black killer, I believe both of these cameras are each in their own special category. The GoPro Hero 7 Black Edition will be ideal for getting intense action shots just as you see in these GoPro advertising videos. For everyday videos, vlogs, travel, cinematic short movies, that is where I think the Osmo Pocket will be better. I believe I would go with the Osmo Pocket, then get the GoPro on if I had to choose one as my camera.
Both of these cameras have some distinctive features that set them apart from one another, and at the day’s end, if I could I would purchase both these cameras. The Hero 7 Black gives you that super video quality, and a super durable body. The Osmo offers you better stabilization, more cinematic field-of-view control, super video quality, a slightly lower price.
