Using DJI’s signature three-axis gimbal stabilization technology, the Osmo eliminates the shake of traditional handheld devices, creating cinematic shots in an easy-to-use, easy-to-set up form factor.
The modular format of the Osmo makes it fully compatible with DJI’s Zenmuse camera series, but comes standard with a 4K, 12-megapixel camera with a 1/2.3” sensor and a 94° field-of-view lens.
“DJI consistently refines the way cameras move in space – whether they are in the air or on the ground,” said Frank Wang, DJI CEO and Founder. “With the Osmo, we have created a camera specifically designed to capture a smooth moving image regardless of filming conditions.”
Intelligent controls built into the handle make changing between shooting angles, capturing photos or recording video effortless.
Creators can view live images of what the camera captures, adjust camera settings and control smart filming functions including –
DJI Osmo Panorama
Take a picture and the camera will automatically pan around 360°, taking and stitching overlapping photos to create a panorama. Here is an example of the flawless panorama shot shots made possible by the DJI Osmo. It’s nothing out of the ordinary, but it sure is handy to be able to create panos in a smooth way and if you have a tripod accessory, you can actually include yourself in the shot making it the ultimate pano selfie.
DJI Osmo Long Exposure
The DJI Osmo long exposure mode makes handheld long-exposures crisp using the camera’s stabilization technology.
Using the DJI Osmo’s slow motion capabilities, you can capture slow motion shots at 120 frames-per-second (fps) up to 1080p
Its onboard universal mount works together with an included smartphone holder in addition to other optional accessories including a tripod, a bike mount or an extension arm.
The Osmo handle comes equipped with an on-board stereo microphone, as well as a 3.5mm audio jack for recording professional-quality external sound so it enables your otherwise “deaf” Inspire camera to record sound.
“Traditional handheld cameras are either shaky, or require bulky stabilizers that are difficult to set up,” said Paul Pan, DJI’s Senior Product Manager. “The Osmo moves the experience of handheld filmmaking from capturing what happened, to sharing expressive, smooth video that shows what an experience was like.”
DJI Osmo Handle Available Separately
Good news for existing DJI Inspire 1 owners that the Osmo handle can be bought separately without a camera, is fully compatible with DJI’s existing Zenmuse series, making it the perfect accessory for everyone who already owns an Inspire 1 with a Zenmuse X3, a Zenmuse X5 Pro or a Zenmuse X5 Raw.
