Hi,

as far as I understood the FAQs Motion Timelapse can save the individual Photos but only as JPG. Is that right and if yes will saving the individual Photos as DNG be supported in a future version? Even on a relatively tiny sensor you can do so much more on a timelapse with the RAW photos...

Thanks, Nico

Hi Nico, thanks for your interest in Osmo Pocket, Timelapse only supports JPEG, DNG requests very large storage and processing capability. I'm afraid it will not be added currently.

Thanks for your reply, that's a bummer. Large storage shouldn't be a problem with the SD-Cards and processing power seems to be availible as 4k60 is there. And the DNGs doesn't need to be processed that much they just need to be saved and saving DNGs is generally possible with this device if I understood correctly.
I hope your engineers may consider adding this in the future.

+1 for adding RAW support to Time/Motionlapse.

In terms of image quality it's night and day.

And as nibblerrick said storage is not a problem and processing power shouldn't be either.

Yup.... no offense but the storage issue does not hold water with the micro sd card on board. Really not any different than the drones.

Yup, no reason it shoudn't do this. Space and processing are not an issue as mentioned above. DNG should take less processing than JPG as its just effectively writing raw sensor data.

What your trying to say is their drones do it so should this. I agree.

Please prioritize enabling DNG for timelapse. Battery consumption is not an issue, those shooting DNG timelapse will be more than happy to tether the device.

The problem with timelapse/motionlapse is there is no whitebalance tracking, so it's IMPOSSIBLE to shoot a sunrise or sunset without things getting too yellow or too blue. The only way to deal with this is if DNG is made available so that whitebalance can be fixed in post.

Please prioritize this feature, it's a glaring problem with the timelapse function that's ruining my experience with this device and making me consider refunding.

Here is an example of how Osmo Pocket ruins sunset timelapse: https://imgur.com/a/eKYS1rg
Once the sodium lights come on, everything just becomes yellow. Likewise doing a sunrise initiates WB on the sodium light and then the imagine becomes pure blue as the sun rises.

This is not acceptable. The GoPro does not have this problem. Please prioritize enabling DNG export for timelapse.

Your presumption is that the Pocket and Mavic have the same processors? (video, audio, communications,  cpu).  Haven't seen any specs that would support that presumption.

The only two limiting factors that would be influenced by specs are battery life and maximum capture throughput. I tested by tethering my phone and spamming the shutter button in jpeg+raw mode, it seems to average one shot every 15 seconds.

That's acceptable. Please prioritise this feature, DJI.

Plus one for adding this feature. Are current jpegs saved in 4k or 1080p res?

The current time-lapse photo is saved as jpeg but it has the full size of 4000 X 2250. So even though the camera processed time-lapse video is only HD you can process the jpeg files in any video editing program yourself to get the 4K video. However I wish the DNG file can bed added in the future firmware upgrade as GoPro can save DNG with no problem

100% agreed!   Now a days it´s a most to be able to shoot RAW otherwise it´s better to take the Sony Rx100V and we´ll get amazing RAW timelapses. Please add RAW to timelapse and let us worry about bogger memory card or battery packs.

+1   DNG for Motion Timelapse. There is no reason to go for a lesser image quality, DJI. DNG is technically feasible.

I can make it with my drones (Mavic Air as well), but I cannot with the Osmo Pocket? What?

+1 also from me.. RAW shotting is ESSENTIAL with such a small sensor.. c'mon DJI..
I would also accept that, in case of .dng shooting, no .jpeg are saved and no final video is rendered..

Storage is not a problem - it is up to the user to buy an SD-card. DJI does not provide an SD-card with the OP anyway.

For a good quality image, a RAW format is needed. JPEG is too destructive. I rather have the choice to have quality images and process them myself, than having the OP process JPEG images that gives bad results.

And why not incorporate HDR with the OP? I'd like to shoot 3 or 5 DNG's and bring them into my favorite photo editor.

D-Cinelike... Now   Please don't hinder the possibilities the OP have.

Yes, PLEASE add RAW support to the timelapse and moving timelapse function!!!

It would also be great to have some kind of HDR for JPEGS and exposure bracketing for RAW pictures, maybe even in timelapse mode

Thanks!

Your suggestion has been transferred to our engineers, HDR was canceled temporarily for better performance, please note the future update, D-Cinelike is estimated to be added in the next firmware, thanks for your patience.

If DNG support proves impossible for whatever reason for this can we at least have the ability to set a manual white balance for timelapse instead?  I would prefer DNG as pulling down overexposed timelapse frames or even single jpegs leaves much to be desired in skies in particular.
