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.

DJI Osmo handheld 4K steady cam review - hands on

 

Gimbal-stabilised handheld 4K video could make all the difference to YouTubers - hands on with the DJI Osmo

The DJI Osmo is available to pre-order today, with the first units expected to arrive on the 15th of October. Prices start at £549 in the UK, with the X5 and X5R camera modules costing significantly more. We're hoping to get hold of one very soon to...

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

Spookily stable footage from a drone maker's first foray into ground-based cameras

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

 

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...

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...
