DJI Osmo

 

The DJI Osmo ($649) wowed us at CES in 2015, earning best in show honors when it was called the DJI Inspire 1 Camera Mount. The finished product shares a lot in common with that prototype, including the same pistol grip design and bundled 4K video...

Sharp 4K footage. Raw and JPG still capture. Steadies handheld video. Directional pad for smooth camera moves. Log color profiles

Limited battery life. Poor microphone quality. Lacks close focus capability. Doesn't zoom

The DJI Osmo camcorder captures steady 4K footage, even when handheld, but battery life and audio quality are concerns.

Drone World DJI Osmo Bundle Kit Review

 

Capturing memorable moments, from sports action shots to a baby's first steps, has never been as accessible as they are today. But not all situations can be addressed by a camera drone. And definitely not everyone has steady hands. There are, of...

GoPro has formally declared open war on its former allies by entering into the drone business with the upcoming Karma. But while GoPro is venturing into a quickly saturating market, DJI has found fresh new land to conquer, and it seems to have already...

DJI Osmo review: A hand-held stabilized camera worthy of its price

 

DJI's Osmo is pretty much the most complete hand-held gimbal in the market right now.

Fantastic stabilization ; Good video quality in general ; Comfortable grip ; Full-featured app

Battery life could be longer ; Videos get noisy easily ; Can't transfer 4K videos to phone ; Microphones aren't very sensitive

This may be DJI's first attempt at making a hand-held gimbal, but it's already by far one of the best, if not the best, solutions in the current market. Great stabilization, intuitive software and comfortable grip make this a fun, complete package.

A Review of the DJI OSMO 4K UHD handheld Steadicam

 

From the same company that brought the world mass market high quality aerial drones and their excellent video recording capacities, the DJI OSMO is a natural step for the Chinese manufacturer to take given its previous product developments. After first...

Wide range of video recording modes and resolutions ; Rock solid stability and handle flexibility ; Very easy to use ; Great video and photo quality for field use ; Highly ergonomic ; Smartphone app for extra controls and live video feed

Video and photo quality isn’t the best in low light ; Not waterproof ; Somewhat limited in its scope ; Weak battery life

The bottom line is that DJI has created a great Steadicam product with the OSMO and we highly recommend it for anyone who needs just this sort of shooting rig. However, if you’re not dead-set on a handheld Steadicam, feel free to just go for a full...

Casey Neistat: DJI Osmo is Vlogging Camera from the Future

 

Unveiled back at CES 2015, the DJI Osmo just went on sale with its integrated 4K camera and 3-axis gimbal for $649. Vlogger extraordinaire, Casey Neistat, just got his hands on the new DJI Osmo and...

Lots of great points in there and a market I hadn’t considered for the Osmo. In addition to the basic 4K version that Casey talks about, you can buy a version of the Osmo that works with the Zenmuse X5 RAW camera/gimbal for higher-end cinematic...

DJI Osmo

 

Simple app ; Superb handheld stabilization ; High quality 4K video

Tricky to add external audio recorder ; Minimum focus distance 1.5m ; No programmable motion

The DJI OSMO offers a whole new way of shooting video handheld. The design is simple but effective and the video quality is really good too. It's perfect for one-person videography.

DJI Osmo helps you get a grip on shaky video (hands-on)

 

Almost a year ago, drone-maker DJI introduced the Inspire 1, a $2,900 (£2,380, AU$4,999) quadcopter with a combination 4K-resolution camera and three-axis motorized stabilization system that's removable and replaceable.

The DJI Osmo can be ordered now direct from DJI for $650 and £550 and will begin shipping October 15. Availability and pricing for Australia wasn't immediately available, but the UK price converts to about AU$1,165. I'll be back with a full review...
