PolarPro has a history of making high-quality ND filters and accessories for devices such as drones and GoPro’s and when it comes to the DJI Osmo Pocket PolarPro has given it the same kind of attention. PolarPro recently launched a new line of accessories for the Osmo Pocket and I must say the engineering team at PolarPro has really come up with some useful gear to help you get the most out of your Osmo Pocket.
It’s no surprise that PolarPro has developed some high-quality ND Filters for the DJI Osmo Pocket, and just like their line up of ND filters for many of the popular drones they have released several ND filter packages to suit any need. The two most common packages are their cinema series vivid and shutter collection. Both contain ND filters with values of ND4, ND8, and ND16. The shutter collection contains straight-up ND filters while the vivid series are ND filters with built-in polarizers.
PolarPro didn’t stop at just ND filters, they have gone on to create some very unique accessories for the Osmo Pocket. The first mount is called the “PolarPro Action Mount for Osmo Pocket”. It is a mount that has 3 tradition GoPro finger mounts built in. One on the back, one on the bottom and one on the side. The side mount is perfect for those who wish to mount the Osmo Pocket on the side of a helmet to get some nice action shots. If you own a lot of GoPro gear this is definitely a must-have accessory. When mounted, the charging/microphone port on the bottom of the Osmo Pocket is fully accessible.
The Next mount is simply called the “PolarPro Tripod Mount for Osmo Pocket”. This mount is similar to the action mount but instead consist of 1/4 20 tripod mounts, one on the side and one on the bottom. This accessory allows you to mount your Osmo Pocket on a tripod or extension pole and leaves you with an additional 1/4 20 mount on the side for other accessories you may want to attach like a light or a microphone. When your DJI Osmo Pocket is installed in the tripod mount you can attach it to your smartphone like normal, the design also allows you to attach and use the scroll wheel if you wish. When mounted, the charging/microphone port on the bottom of the Osmo Pocket is fully accessible.
Another handy accessory they developed is called the “Polar Pro WiFi Tripod Adapter for Osmo Pocket”. If you own the DJI WiFi module for the Osmo Pocket it has one design flaw, there is no way to attach it to a tripod or extension pole. The WiFi Tripod Adapter for Osmo Pocket solves this problem by providing a simple but effective way to be able to mount you Osmo Pocket when using the wireless module. A couple of nice design features includes full access to the charging/microphone port and groves to mount to most tripod heads. Just keep in mind when using this style of mount your Osmo Pocket is only being held in place by friction. You may want to use caution is certain scenarios.
Polar Pro also released the “PolarPro Gimbal Lock for Osmo Pocket”. This handy accessory serves 3 purposes. Firstly it locks the Gimbal so no damage can be done to it if you carry the unit in a bag or even in your pocket without the case. Secondly, it protects the camera lens from getting scratched. Thirdly it also protects the small LCD screen from being damaged again if carried in a bag or pocket without the case. PolarPro’s design engineers made sure that the gimbal lock is compatible and fully usable if you have your Osmo Pocket installed in the Action Mount or Tripod Mount.
In addition to these accessories, they have also released what the call a minimalist case. This case is small and can hold the Osmo Pocket, Control Wheel, Wireless Module, and both smartphone adapters. There is a mesh pocket in the top for holding other gear such as cables and memory. It also features a pocket on the outside of the case a perfect spot to store your ND Filters.
