Why I Gave DJI Another Chance: A Chill Review of the Osmo Pocket 3

Hey There! Why I'm Back with DJI
So, let's get real for a moment. Marielou was pretty much done with DJI – like, “it's not me, it’s you” kind of done. But then, boom! Along came the Osmo Pocket 3. We've got to say, our curiosity won over our skepticism. I mean, why not give it another shot, right?

What’s Cool About Osmo Pocket 3
This little gadget is something else! It's tiny, which means you can literally stash it in your pocket and go. Whether you’re tracking your pets around the house (yes, it can track cats!) or shooting a quick vlog, this camera doesn’t disappoint with its smooth gimbal action. Plus, you can switch between landscape and portrait – super handy for a quick Insta story or a full-on YouTube video.

Go Big or Go Home with the Creator Combo
Marielou is all about the Creator Combo, and honestly, I am too. If you’re thinking about getting the Osmo Pocket 3, just skip the basic version. This combo packs everything – a protective case that charges, a wide-angle lens, and even some cool mounts and extra battery life. And the best part? It includes a DJI mic 2 that doesn’t need a receiver to connect. So handy!

Streaming and Real Talk on Usability
Streaming live can be a blast, and the Osmo Pocket 3 has this feature too. But heads up, it's not completely seamless. You’ll need to mess around with an app and possibly a secondary device to see comments. Not a dealbreaker, but something to keep in mind. Also, the menu can be a bit annoying since it covers up the screen and doesn’t swipe away. Just a little quirk to get used to!

Real World, Real Use
What’s neat is hearing how Marielou took this cam for a spin in some professional gigs, like filming client projects and interviews. It’s not just for casual clips; this little device pulls its weight in more ways than one. Having a camera that adds dynamic shots and doesn’t freak out under pressure? Priceless.

So, Should You Buy It?
Marielou thinks if you’re after something fun and functional for your video adventures, the Osmo Pocket 3 could be your new best friend. It might not be the sole camera for pro filmmakers, but for most of us who want something reliable and easy for daily use, it’s a solid yes.

To Wrap It Up
Giving DJI another chance with the Osmo Pocket 3 turned out to be a good move for Marielou, and it could be for you too if you’re looking for a mix of fun and function in your filming gear. Sometimes revisiting a brand can surprise you, and who doesn’t love a good tech comeback story? If you’re on the fence, maybe it’s worth a shot. After all, it’s all about making videos and having fun doing it!
