Back when the DJI Osmo Pocket was first released in mid-December, PGYTech was one of the first 3rd part accessory makers to introduce accessories. One of the accessories they introduced for the Osmo Pocket was a phone mount system to keep the Osmo Pocket secured to your smartphone. This mount included a cold shoe on the top and 1/4 20 mount on the bottom. For the most part, it was a good product but was not very compact and could be a little fidgety to install.
Last week a new updated version of this accessory appeared on the DJI website and it was renamed to the Osmo Pocket Phone Holder+. It had a brand new streamlined designed that was more compact and easier to install. When folded up it was quite portable and could easily be carried in a pocket. I am not sure if this is going to be a DJI exclusive item as I have not seen it appear on Amazon as of yet, but It could be coming at some point.
The new design features an all aluminum build and the quality of construction seems to be top notch, there is a little weight to its all-metal design but nothing that would deter me from using it. Just like the original version, it has a cold shoe on the top for attaching microphones or perhaps a light, and a 1/4 20 on the bottom for attaching handles, tripods or even an extension pole. But its main purpose is to hold the DJI Osmo Pocket secure in place when attached to your smartphone. You don’t have to worry about it jiggling loose or putting too much stress on your lighting or USB-C port.
The PGYTech Phone Holder+ has a spring loaded phone holder that can adjust to many different sizes of phones and is compatible with both the iPhone and Android smartphones. Watch our YouTube review where we take a closer look and show you how to install and use it.
