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.

DJI Osmo Mobile is a smarter handheld stabilizer for your phone (hands-on)

 

The three-axis gimbal turns an Android or iOS phone into a steady movie maker complete with subject tracking and full camera control.

DJI Osmo

 

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

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.

Conclusions Depending on your needs, you may view the DJI Osmo in a very different light. Home movie shooters will likely be taken aback by its price—especially when you consider that it doesn't have a zoom lens and requires you to buy an external mic...

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...

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...

Review: DJI's Osmo brings stabilized video to the rest of us

 

With action camera juggernaut GoPro making moves to muscle in on DJI's multicopter dominance, DJI is fighting back with a portable action camera of its own, and one that can do things no GoPro can do yet.

We had the chance to test drive one over the weekend, so while this is far from a comprehensive review, we did get a chance to form some opinions.

DJI Osmo: Say goodbye to shaky 4K video (hands-on)

 

Best known for its drones, DJI took to the stage at the launch of the new Osmo and talked about itself as a camera company.

DJI Osmo review

 

Drone specialist DJI releases the ultimate tool for the next generation of YouTube stars

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.
