Home Information Osmo+


by 9to5dji

Whilst I was on Holiday ( France and Belgium, Brugge is a stunning place ), DJI announced what was expected, an Osmo with the Z3 camera attached.  This was not the device that people want as it is still the same Osmo handle with just a new camera.

It is still expected for DJI to announce a completely new device ( Osmo Mobile ). This could be duting the IFA in Berlin this Thursday or most likely at Photokina in Cologne the end of September.

The Osmo+ is still a good device even though it’s not what people are expecting. Some of the features I touted for a new device is in this one ( motion timelapse )


What’s the difference between the Osmo and the Osmo+?

The Osmo+ uses a Zenmuse X3 zoom camera offering up to 7x zoom when shooting 1080p HD video. This is made up of a 3.5x optical zoom and 2x lossless digital zoom. The Zenmuse X3 camera on the Osmo uses a 20mm prime lens with a fixed focal length and focus. It provides a 2x lossless digital zoom when taking 1080p videos.

Can I focus when shooting with an Osmo+? If yes, how?

Yes. The Osmo+ will automatically focus on where you tap on the screen.

What are the max. video and photo resolutions for the Zenmuse X3 Zoom camera?

4K video; 12 megapixel photos.

Can I take timelapse videos with Osmo+?


Can I take long exposure shots with Osmo+?


How long can I shoot for with the Osmo+?

With the standard Osmo High Capacity Intelligent battery you can shoot up to 100 minutes.

Is Zenmuse X3 Zoom compatible with any aerial system?

No, because the software and hardware solutions of the two products are different.

What’s the operating temperature range for the Osmo+?

0℃ to 40℃ .

What’s the max. controllable range of the Osmo+?

25m in ideal situations. Actual range is dependent on the environment.

What kind of Micro SD card can be used on Osmo+?

Class10 and UHS1 or above.

Can I mount the Osmo+ on the Osmo Z-Axis?

Yes. As the Osmo+ is heavier, you will need to adjust the balance by turning the tension adjustment knob after mounting the Osmo+ on the Z-Axis.

Is it worth selling my standard OSMO to get the + if I can get a good price for my old OSMO?

I am considering doing it. I assume it must be better in every way, right? I like the fact that it can focus closer up as well for selfie mode.

Have you managed to come accross any test footage taken with the OSMO+?

If you want the zoom function then its a god upgrade.. Everything else is just candy in my opinion ( although the Activetrack is good ).

In my opinion, with how good smartphones are these days, the Osmo Mobile is a good option.

Does the + have activetrack? Wasn’t aware of that! OSMO mobile looks great, I wouldn’t mind one in addition to the OSMO(+), but not replacing it!

I also managed to find out the + uses a slightly larger capacity battery, and they will be interchangeable with the old OSMO batteries.

Thanks for your advice 🙂
