I enjoy shooting with OSMO Pocket but do wish it had a 1/4" tripod mount.
DJI's planned mounting accessory is only competible with gopro mount. (Well you can connect tripod mount to gopro mount but...)

So I decided to make a tripod mount myself.


I enjoyed shooting last weekend.

I guess I will go out for shooting next weekend as well.
#OSMO Pocket hyperlapse test
Another test.

I used 1mm, 2mm and 3mm plastic sheets for construction material.
L-Shape USB-C adapter.
1/4"-40 Hex Nut.
Something to cut plastic sheet.

It took me about 2 hours to cut all the pieaces.

Make sure L-Shape USB-C adapter and 1/4" nut fits in.

Once all the pieaces are glued together, put plastic walls to cup the OSMO Pocket.

As you can see, I can connect USB-C to smart phone while mounted.
I can use smart phone for monitor and control the gimbal with on screen joystic.
Now it becomes a portable hand held camera crane.

Considering how big the real thing is, it is amazing.
I can use Gimbal lock mode or tracking mode to shoot while moving the crane.

Shooting with OSMO Pocket crane is great.
It opens an access to the angles that was not accessble before.
To see the shooting quality, check my video on top of the page.

Hello and good day Tide. Thank you for sharing this amazing information with us today regarding the DIY tripod for the DJI Osmo Pocket. Have a safe and happy filming. Happy Holidays.

As I am pushing more out of osmo pocket, I hope mimo app to have more advanced control options like adjust & fixing gimbal rotation speed on manual rotation.

Happy holiday.

I'm glad I'm not alone in thinking about the creative possibilies of a pole mounted Pocket.  It's  like having a drone that isn't bound by restrictive laws and which won't fly away or crash.  Of course it's limited in flying height - but I'm hoping to buy a 5 metre pole tomorrow and take that into town.  Couldn't do that with a drone!

Great experiment.
3m pole already gives a nice perspective. Wonder how it would like with a 5m pole.
