The Osmo is a handheld stabilized camera that can shoot video in 4k and still photos at 12MP. Created by the worlds biggest Drone manufacturer, DJI, it sports a simple pistol grip and one of DJI’s Zenmuse 3-axis gimbals to give you super stable footage in any situation.
The camera on the Osmo appears very similar to that seen on their mid sized Quadcopter, the Inspire 1. The noticeable differences between the two is that the Osmo is capable of 120fps in full HD and its focus is also adapted to closer objects than its Aerial optimized counterpart.
Features at a glance.
4k Video – Osmo shoots videos in 4K (4096 x 2160) 24/25p, 2K and up to 120fps in full HD 1080p.
12MP Images – Maximum image resolution is 12 megapixels (4000 x 3000) with multiple shooting modes available.
Cinematic Stabilization – The Osmo brings DJI’s recognized leadership in camera stabilization down to the ground and into your hands. A 3-axis stabilization system completely integrated with the camera cancels out your movements in three directions so it stays still even if your hands shake or wobble. This is the first time this technology is available in a camera you can hold.
360° Panorama – The Automatic Panorama mode makes shooting 360° panoramas easier than ever. Just hold the Osmo up above your head and tap the shutter button. The camera will rotate, capturing images as it goes while staying completely level. Don’t just get a snapshot of a piece of your travels. Make a memory of the whole scene.
Time-Lapse – Osmo supports both still time-lapses as well as the fast-moving hyper-lapse for the creative.
Tripod Free Long-exposure – Take long exposure shots with absolute crispness and sharpness, even without a tripod. The stabilization system in the Osmo keeps the camera totally still so you can freehand capture stills of up to 2 seconds. With practice, you can get even longer shots. Now you can capture night time cityscapes, or blur out your subject’s background the moment inspiration strikes.
Upgradable Camera – Besides X3, Osmo is compatible with new Zenmuse Micro Four Thirds systems (X5 and X5R).
Control – With built in WiFi, you can effortlessly control Osmo using your Smart Phone. All of DJI’s Smart Shooting modes can be controlled and triggered by remote control from within the DJI GO app on your smartphone. Mount the Osmo on a tripod, or any of the other available mounts, and take a few steps back to a position from where you can easily overlook the scene and control the camera.
Smart Battery – Battery life is around 1 hour of continuous recording, 6 hours in intelligent sleep mode.
Clarity of Sound – Built in microphone allows on-board audio recording. There is 3.5 mm jack with an external mic support.
