abunda_amazon_reviews The Osmo will not operate without installing DJI's Mimo app. The Mimo app *requires* that you create an account and upload data about your phone to their server as part of an "activation" process. The Mimo app demands location information (on both Android and iOS) and refuses to run unless you agree to these terms. This is a completely unacceptable privacy violation. I bought the camera. I should be able to use it without having to "activate" it first - especially when the activation is a privacy nightmare.;;Reviewed in the United States on December 16, 2018;;1.0 out of 5 stars;;Cannot use camera at all without agreeing to invasive permissions.;;Kindle Customer;;;Be warned that if you send this for a refund, you will lose $100 I'm not sure why my original review was deleted. I ordered this for Christmas, and learned that it would not work with a micro USB phone (they did not advertise this at the time, they updated it mid January) and the device has to be registered in order to work. I contacted DJI support to be told that there was nothing that can be done. A few days later I was able to get it working but using it without a phone limits a lot of the features and usability. So I sent it back for a refund and got $200 back instead of the $350 I paid. After contacting customer support, I was able to get an additional $50 back. I loved the original osmo and always wanted one but this was such a disappointment. I don't know why you have to register it before you can even use it. They should confirm it works before charging money.;;Reviewed in the United States on March 14, 2019;;2.0 out of 5 stars;;Ordered for Christmas, only to learn it did not take micro USB and had to be registered.;;Dimitri Dark;;;A fairly good product however does lack some basic festures and has some FW and App bugs, seems like DJI rushed into releasing the product to catch on the holiday shopping bus. These are just my personal views as a honest commoner for the benefit of the larger amazon community and are not influenced by any company, person : Pro’s / Con’s / Feedback for DJI : 1. Shoots brilliant 4K and gives an option to choose multiple frame rates starting from 24 all the way till 60fps (in PRO Mode) 2. Very good tracking and follow mode, crisp video and good detection range however, no option to use follow mode in 4K 60FPS (maybe a FW fix). 3. When connected to the MIMO app, syncs photos, videos etc with built in phone gallery. (provide an option to disable this) 4. Lacks zoom (no digital zoom either), maybe DJI will add this with a firmware update. 5. No option to shoot superfine with 4K at 60FPS (again a FW fix) 6. Lacks wide Pano (beyond 3x3) maybe 6x3 or 9x3 etc. max possible to cameras panning capabilities. 7. Unable to switch Camera modes without exiting the PRO setting (if disconnected from the phone). Exiting the PRO reset’s all camera quality settings (this seems like a FW bug and DJI needs to fix this ASAP) 8. The product comes with only an iPhone connector and a USB Type C, hence in a way folks having an older device wont be able to connect. Which essentially also means the product cant be activated (activation needs you to connect the osmo pocket to a phone). I an wondering how much of a cost is it to include a 2nd Gen type of a usb connector. DJI should seriously think about including it in v2.0 of the hardware and at this point provide an option to the existing buyers to buy it. 9. No option to reduce shutter below 1/60 in 4k / 60p video mode using manual settings and 4k / 24p to less then 1/25. Quite a limitation when doing video shoots in indoor environment with manual setting. 10. If you use Auto during indoor shoots, the ISO always defaults to 1600 or 3200 and this produces a super grainy (noisy) picture. If there is an option to fix the apperature setting then I dont think there is a need to use ISO at that high range (needs some tweaking and fixing at the image quality level). 11. DJI please provide an option for Shutter / Apperature priority along with Manual and Auto. This is more of a FW fix and would be off convenience to a lot of users. I will update this review in a few weeks as I see responses and updates from DJI. Moreover I am headed to a Cruise next week and I am hopefull that the Cruise will be a good use case for testing this thing out in real life.

I was able to register, and even update the firmware for the device on my LG phone using a micro usb-c adapter; this is the exact one I used -- https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B06X9M6T99/ -- Hope it works for you, as DJI makes no claims on their forum as to any adapter working. DJI announced they'll be making a compatible adapter soon. DJI seems to tie the product to you via e-mail, so I if you bother a friend and register your device on their phone, you should be fine until you get a "real" phone, not one with a pathetic outdated micro-usb like mine! To the wiseguys saying I didn't do my research, listen up. DJI's marketing and forum replies, at least up until now, have all said you can use their device WITHOUT A PHONE. People who are saying things like, "you didn't know what was in the box," are not comprehending that I wouldn't care how it connects to a phone when I have been told that you don't need a phone. It's not tough to understand. DJI says I don't need a phone. BUT I DO! It's not MY fault every manufacturer wants total control over their product like Doctor Doom. And no, I'm not buying a new expensive phone so I can use my new expensive camera. Anyway, here's the result. The gimbal tech seems amazing to me, but it regularly loses track of the subject. I can't move the gimbal using the swipe controls while it's recording the way you can when it's not recording (the Pocket will display a message telling you as much). Tracking is not available in 4k as it is in other resolutions (again the Pocket will flash a message). The Osmo Pocket takes beautiful video, and works well in low light. I like the device and feel I will get better with it the more I get used to using it. It records audio, although there is no audio playback from the Osmo Pocket itself. You can't use the pocket while the case is attached, and the strap attaches to the case, not the Pocket, so if you lose your grip, you are boned, my friend. Having said all that, the Pocket seems to do what it's supposed to. Fits in your pocket and takes clear, smooth, stable video, a godsend for vloggers, I would think. I'm looking forward to getting better at using it! Leaving my review one star for now to serve as a warning, and because DJI's customer service treated me like a dirty dog (just kidding they were really nice, but completely unhelpful, telling me I was out of luck, and not even suggesting an adapter), also because the gimbal isn't yet working as I would expect, although that could actually be my fault. And to penalize DJI and warn other manufacturers that your customer's want your device to work out of the box. If someone asks if you can use it without a phone and you say yes, we don't expect there to be some kind of catch. Say "yes, but, you need a phone to register and update the device." I'll update more in the future. Original review below: -------------------------- TLDR; I can't register my Osmo Pocket! I've got an LG phone, and I can't activate the Osmo Pocket because my phone only has micro-usb. And the Osmo Pocket won't work without activation. Oh, it'll turn on, but you get a message "Device not activated." Try to press a button and you get red letters telling you "NOT ACTIVATED(dummy)." The ONLY way to activate it is by connecting the Pocket to a device with DJI's Osmo Pocket app on it, and the only way to connect to a device is with one of the adapter's that came with the Pocket: a type-C or lightning connector. I called customer service and after consulting with various people the man told me I was out of luck, and didn't even offer a fix, just said "sorry for the inconvenience." I'm MORE sorry! Sucks because I have an event this weekend that I bought this Osmo Pocket specifically for. Kinda mad because everything I looked at online said I could use this thing without needing a phone. But I DO need a phone, if only for activation. I ordered an adapter and I hope it works. If not, maybe I can pester a friend to register the device for me lol, but then I'm afraid it will be tied to their phone somehow, and I won't be able to use the Osmo with the app anyway, since the app would be on someone else's phone. I might just return the Pocket, though I hate to do that. It came with a type C to USB I can charge it with, wish I could plug it to a computer and register it with that. Heck, why do I even HAVE to register it? Can't I use a product without having to jump through hoops for something paid for? You have my money, what else do you want? I know I sound bitter, but I'm disappointed. Is it my fault for not having newer tech? Or should DJI have given an alternative method of activation? Hopefully I can get it to work, and I'll revise my rating!

The Mimo app demands location information (on both Android and iOS) and refuses to run unless you agree to these terms. This is a completely unacceptable privacy violation. I bought the camera. I should be able to use it without having to "activate" it first - especially when the activation is a privacy nightmare.

Ordered for Christmas, only to learn it did not take micro USB and had to be registered.
Be warned that if you send this for a refund, you will lose $100 I'm not sure why my original review was deleted. I ordered this for Christmas, and learned that it would not work with a micro USB phone (they did not advertise this at the time, they updated it mid January) and the device has to be registered in order to work. I contacted DJI support to be told that there was nothing that can be done. A few days later I was able to get it working but using it without a phone limits a lot of the features and usability. So I sent it back for a refund and got $200 back instead of the $350 I paid. After contacting customer support, I was able to get an additional $50 back. I loved the original osmo and always wanted one but this was such a disappointment. I don't know why you have to register it before you can even use it. They should confirm it works before charging money.

A good gimbal - camera combo however needs some basic fundamental updates and features
A fairly good product however does lack some basic festures and has some FW and App bugs, seems like DJI rushed into releasing the product to catch on the holiday shopping bus. These are just my personal views as a honest commoner for the benefit of the larger amazon community and are not influenced by any company, person : Pro’s / Con’s / Feedback for DJI : 1. Shoots brilliant 4K and gives an option to choose multiple frame rates starting from 24 all the way till 60fps (in PRO Mode) 2. Very good tracking and follow mode, crisp video and good detection range however, no option to use follow mode in 4K 60FPS (maybe a FW fix). 3. When connected to the MIMO app, syncs photos, videos etc with built in phone gallery. (provide an option to disable this) 4. Lacks zoom (no digital zoom either), maybe DJI will add this with a firmware update. 5. No option to shoot superfine with 4K at 60FPS (again a FW fix) 6. Lacks wide Pano (beyond 3x3) maybe 6x3 or 9x3 etc. max possible to cameras panning capabilities. 7. Unable to switch Camera modes without exiting the PRO setting (if disconnected from the phone). Exiting the PRO reset’s all camera quality settings (this seems like a FW bug and DJI needs to fix this ASAP) 8. The product comes with only an iPhone connector and a USB Type C, hence in a way folks having an older device wont be able to connect. Which essentially also means the product cant be activated (activation needs you to connect the osmo pocket to a phone). I an wondering how much of a cost is it to include a 2nd Gen type of a usb connector. DJI should seriously think about including it in v2.0 of the hardware and at this point provide an option to the existing buyers to buy it. 9. No option to reduce shutter below 1/60 in 4k / 60p video mode using manual settings and 4k / 24p to less then 1/25. Quite a limitation when doing video shoots in indoor environment with manual setting. 10. If you use Auto during indoor shoots, the ISO always defaults to 1600 or 3200 and this produces a super grainy (noisy) picture. If there is an option to fix the apperature setting then I dont think there is a need to use ISO at that high range (needs some tweaking and fixing at the image quality level). 11. DJI please provide an option for Shutter / Apperature priority along with Manual and Auto. This is more of a FW fix and would be off convenience to a lot of users. I will update this review in a few weeks as I see responses and updates from DJI. Moreover I am headed to a Cruise next week and I am hopefull that the Cruise will be a good use case for testing this thing out in real life. At this point in time, it still does not replace my Hero 7 Black on a Gimbal.

Stay away until they get it to work as advertised
USo DJI is happy releasing a beta product. Can't track anything, loses subject all the time. Jerky movement. Ends up pointing in random directions. Interface isn't remotely intuitive. DJI is like Apple. Great hardware. Most of the time anyway. But your software is lacking, buggy.

Warning, you need a phone to register; Not compatible with micro-usb phones.
Update! I was able to register, and even update the firmware for the device on my LG phone using a micro usb-c adapter; this is the exact one I used -- https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B06X9M6T99/ -- Hope it works for you, as DJI makes no claims on their forum as to any adapter working. DJI announced they'll be making a compatible adapter soon. DJI seems to tie the product to you via e-mail, so I if you bother a friend and register your device on their phone, you should be fine until you get a "real" phone, not one with a pathetic outdated micro-usb like mine! To the wiseguys saying I didn't do my research, listen up. DJI's marketing and forum replies, at least up until now, have all said you can use their device WITHOUT A PHONE. People who are saying things like, "you didn't know what was in the box," are not comprehending that I wouldn't care how it connects to a phone when I have been told that you don't need a phone. It's not tough to understand. DJI says I don't need a phone. BUT I DO! It's not MY fault every manufacturer wants total control over their product like Doctor Doom. And no, I'm not buying a new expensive phone so I can use my new expensive camera. Anyway, here's the result. The gimbal tech seems amazing to me, but it regularly loses track of the subject. I can't move the gimbal using the swipe controls while it's recording the way you can when it's not recording (the Pocket will display a message telling you as much). Tracking is not available in 4k as it is in other resolutions (again the Pocket will flash a message). The Osmo Pocket takes beautiful video, and works well in low light. I like the device and feel I will get better with it the more I get used to using it. It records audio, although there is no audio playback from the Osmo Pocket itself. You can't use the pocket while the case is attached, and the strap attaches to the case, not the Pocket, so if you lose your grip, you are boned, my friend. Having said all that, the Pocket seems to do what it's supposed to. Fits in your pocket and takes clear, smooth, stable video, a godsend for vloggers, I would think. I'm looking forward to getting better at using it! Leaving my review one star for now to serve as a warning, and because DJI's customer service treated me like a dirty dog (just kidding they were really nice, but completely unhelpful, telling me I was out of luck, and not even suggesting an adapter), also because the gimbal isn't yet working as I would expect, although that could actually be my fault. And to penalize DJI and warn other manufacturers that your customer's want your device to work out of the box. If someone asks if you can use it without a phone and you say yes, we don't expect there to be some kind of catch. Say "yes, but, you need a phone to register and update the device." I'll update more in the future. Original review below: -------------------------- TLDR; I can't register my Osmo Pocket! I've got an LG phone, and I can't activate the Osmo Pocket because my phone only has micro-usb. And the Osmo Pocket won't work without activation. Oh, it'll turn on, but you get a message "Device not activated." Try to press a button and you get red letters telling you "NOT ACTIVATED(dummy)." The ONLY way to activate it is by connecting the Pocket to a device with DJI's Osmo Pocket app on it, and the only way to connect to a device is with one of the adapter's that came with the Pocket: a type-C or lightning connector. I called customer service and after consulting with various people the man told me I was out of luck, and didn't even offer a fix, just said "sorry for the inconvenience." I'm MORE sorry! Sucks because I have an event this weekend that I bought this Osmo Pocket specifically for. Kinda mad because everything I looked at online said I could use this thing without needing a phone. But I DO need a phone, if only for activation. I ordered an adapter and I hope it works. If not, maybe I can pester a friend to register the device for me lol, but then I'm afraid it will be tied to their phone somehow, and I won't be able to use the Osmo with the app anyway, since the app would be on someone else's phone. I might just return the Pocket, though I hate to do that. It came with a type C to USB I can charge it with, wish I could plug it to a computer and register it with that. Heck, why do I even HAVE to register it? Can't I use a product without having to jump through hoops for something paid for? You have my money, what else do you want? I know I sound bitter, but I'm disappointed. Is it my fault for not having newer tech? Or should DJI have given an alternative method of activation? Hopefully I can get it to work, and I'll revise my rating! 'Til then it's a $400 paperweight!
