Lighting Adapter for iPhone is Broken

In this post, I reflect on my experience using the DJI Osmo Pocket. I have owned the Osmo Pocket since its release date. Yes, I purchased the device on my own.

To date, the device really fills a gap in my gear line-up. Many times I find myself, wanting to take a video of something, however, pass on the opportunity. This is solely due to the fact that I don’t want to take the time to set up my gear or simply by the time I do the shot opportunity has passed. This is where the OP (Osmo Pocket) comes in very handy.

With that in mind, I am a firm believer that the OP was designed to be in its simplest state, no attachments. However, if you are a tech nerd or gearhead, you want the accessories. Part of you feels you can’t truly function, without them, even if you rarely use them.

In this case, this first generation Osmo Pocket is packed with additional features, including a PRO mode which is only accessible when connected to a phone. The phone also provides you with a much larger display.

I carry my phone with me naturally every day, so attaching the OP seems logical if I am looking to go to the next level with the video capabilities. And with that being said, within the first 10 days of using my Osmo Pocket, I broke the lighting adapter while having my iPhone connected.

In this video, I discuss the moment I broke my Osmo Pocket Lighting Adapter and my thoughts on the experience. I was impressed by the fact that even through the drop the OP kept recording and bounced right back.
