The retractable DJI Osmo Pocket extension rod can reach a maximum length of 500mm, allowing you to shoot from different angles.
The waterproof case is priced £49 and the extension rod is £69. Both are available for pre-order from Heliguy. Click here to purchase yours.
A Closer Look At The DJI Osmo Pocket Waterproof Case
Thanks to the precise fit inside the case, the DJI Osmo Pocket is kept secure while avoiding unwanted movements.
The waterproof case includes two mounting brackets that allow users to attach the case to other equipment. Two buttons on the outside grant precise control of the Osmo Pocket.

There are a number of tips to help you get the most out of your waterproof case.

- Make sure the securing ring is completely tightened. DJI takes no responsibility for any damage or loss resulting from improper use of Osmo Pocket underwater.
- The camera cannot be adjusted when used with the waterproof case.
- Make sure the anti-fog insert works properly. Replace the anti-fog insert regularly.
- Clean the waterproof case after using. Make sure the waterproof case is clean at all times.
A Closer Look At The DJI Osmo Pocket Extension Rod
The extension rod is a great tool to help you capture some really great shots.
You can attach your phone to the phone holder, and use an Osmo Pocket Wireless Module or a connection cable (both sold independently) to control Osmo Pocket with the extension rod. The extension rod also features multiple mounting brackets for additional shooting options.
With a control stick and six buttons on the handle, the Osmo Pocket Extension Rod can precisely control the gimbal, track objects, change gimbal modes, and recenter, improving your shooting experience.
It also features a standard 1/4-inch tripod mount at the bottom to connect Osmo Pocket with additional accessories.
Osmo Pocket will charge the extension rod automatically when connected. The extension rod will run out of battery if not used for six months or longer. Connect it to an Osmo Pocket to charge it.
The DJI Osmo Pocket
Released just before Christmas, the DJI Osmo Pocket has been an incredibly popular product.
It is a tiny stabilised vlogging camera which offers storytelling freedom in the palm of your hand. This compact and intelligent bit of kit boasts the smallest three-axis gimbal in DJI history, the ability to capture shake-free footage and a ½.3-inch sensor. Other exciting features include Motionlapse, ActiveTrack, 3×3 panorama and NightShot technology.
Earlier this year, DJI followed up the Osmo Pocket with the release of the DJI Osmo Action camera – a rival to the GoPro HERO7 Black. The DJI Osmo Action, which is also waterproof up to 60 metres with a diving house, is available to purchase from Heliguy and is pictured below. The Osmo Pocket and the Osmo Action are priced at £329.
