The new DJI Osmo is a relatively new concept for a consumer electronics product, but one, I thinkhas a long-term place in the market. You could be forgiven for thinking it’s a GoPro on a selfie stick, and while it has a selfie mode, it’s a whole lot more powerful than that.

The wide range of applications for the Osmo give it huge potential. It is essentially the first all-in-one product of its kind and as such, all the parts work seamlessly together. The camera and 3-axis gimbal are actually the same as what’s found on the DJI Inspire 1 drone, and the handle has been made specifically for it. If you have an Inspire 1 already, the handle is expected to be available separately as well. You can expect the same very impressive image quality, with resolutions up to 4K and frame rates of up to 100fps in 1080p. The fixed lens is a 20mm equivalent, so it’s very wide. Even still, previewing is important, so with the included smart phone attachment, you can use the free ‘DJI GO’ app as a live viewfinder as well as control the camera settings and modes.

DJI Osmo
It is primarily a handheld, stabilised video camera; however it’s pretty smart and gives you plenty of flexibility for different types of shots. There’s a panorama mode where it will pan, photograph and stitch together a series of photos without you even having to move. It also does a mean timelapse and you can set it to move through the shot as well.

The build quality is very good and overall it is a pretty fantastic first attempt. Assuming the only way is up, the future of this ‘handheld steadycam’ category is very exciting.
