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...

DJI Osmo Mobile 2 review: Superb stabilisation

 

If you're looking to capture incredibly smooth footage from your smartphone then the DJI Osmo Mobile 2 will certainly give you the results you want.

Super-smooth stabilisation in multiple modes ; Improved hardware controls ; Long battery life ; Also charges your phone

You can't flip orientation mid recording ; No microphone mount this time ; Micro-USB recharge rather than USB-C

DJI Osmo Mobile 2 review

 

Mobile movie-makers just got a new favourite toy

Fantastic way to step up your mobile video ; Much lower price than the original ; Compact enough to take just about anywhere

Some manual adjustment required ; Not as modular or expandable as the original

If you’ve ever filmed anything with your phone, you need one of these. DJI’s most affordable gimbal yet should be a budding mobile filmmaker’s first buy

DJI Osmo Mobile 2 initial review: Smooth sailing

 

With new features, better steadycam smarts, better battery, and a cheaper price there's plenty to like about the Osmo Mobile 2

Cheaper ; Better battery life ; Zoom controls ; Portrait mode

Battery isn't replaceable ; No more side mount for external mics

With new features, better steadycam smarts, better battery, and a cheaper price there's plenty to like about the Osmo Mobile 2. If you're already a fan, this probably qualifies for instant upgrade territory.

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.

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...

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...
