DJI Osmo Pocket 4K

Moving away from GoPro, another famous company that makes action cameras and drones is DJI. DJI is known more for its drone. But it has a product that is worth a peek. It is called the DJI Osmo Pocket 4K action camera and it is on sale this Black Friday.
The actual camera looks like a stick that literally fits in your pocket. The stick-like body has a camera on top with a 3-axis gimbal. So, you literally have a mount, a gimbal, and a camera all in one product. The camera is pretty powerful too as it can shoot 4K video at 60 frames per second.
The DJI Osmo also allows you to mount your smartphone on the handlebar and add special effects to your video as you film. The only downside with this action camera is that it is not water-resistant. You need to buy a separate case to take it into the water with you.
