Okay this could go very wrong - Hello, I'm Neil - and I just wanted to shoot... I just wanted to shoot this test, erm, today seemed to be the right day for it - the question is can you use an Osmo pocket in the rain? Erm, probably - I'm guessing woah! Guessing the answere's probably not because it's not weatherproof I believe
but erm... where's my face track? hang on, no! I'm here. Face track. There,how's that? No!
So that-- so I've just had this, it--
I've just had this for what, two days?
"Is it waterproof?"
It's not waterproof - it's not waterproof or weatherproof at all.
Er... so I thought - so thought I'd answer the question "can an Osmo Pocket be used in bad weather or in the rain?"
And today I've chosen the worst storm to hit Britain in a long time - it's it's called storm Ciara - yeah -
Oh! I'm not even wet!
It's predicted-- we're predicted to have 50 to 60 mile an hour winds or gusts
I don't know what the difference is between a wind and a gust - maybe you can tell me in the comments below
This is just - it's just the camera test to see if a storm will break my Osmo pocket
You might see the flaw in this plan - but to me it seems like a good idea
The other reason I wanted to shoot this test is to see how good or bad the audio is
So I understand, there are a couple of microphones in the bottom there
The only thing that's wet is my wellies. Oh.
That's it - I'm not wet. You think my legs are wet after jumping in that puddle. Nah.
Let me give you a sense of how bad the weather is.
There are so few cars...
So this is a really bad storm - let me get my phone out. I'll erm... show you what the Osmo Pocket looks like.
You see there's a bit of rain on there - you might be screaming at the screen right now
To tell me to get it in! And get it dry!
But I really just wanted to see how it would behave in a extreme situation
Yeah I know this could go horribly wrong but if we get through this day then... The world's my oyster with the Osmo Pocket.
"If we get through this day then woah the world's my oyster with the Osmo pocket!"
Oh the flip button seems to work
I haven't got my... erm, so don't have any windshield on the microphone
I might need to wipe the lens
I don't have any wide-angle lens as well
I think that's gonna be the next thing that I get for this thing
But man it's cold and the winds are quite strong. Let me show how you how bad the winds - I dont know if it's coming across - because of the small screen - so I don't know how bad the weather is coming across - let me show you a shot here.
"I'm PeppaPig Reek!"
So anyway that's - This is pretty much the most extreme weather that we're gonna get here in the UK this year
So I'll leave in the description - I'll say if the automated pocket has died forever for good
And if it hasn't I put that in the description as well
I hope this video has helped if it has - it'll be lovely if you give me a thumbs up - just to let me know someone reached this point of the video
