DJI have been teasing us for a while with the OSMO, it has been making lots of little appearances, but details have been scarce. Thankfully the wait is over.
DJI have always done an excellent job with their gimbals. We have owned a number of their Zenmuse range and have certainly put them through their paces over the years. Going airbourne with them is always the ultimate test and they tend to keep delivering even when the aircraft reaches its limits. With all that in mind, we had high expectations for the OSMO.
There are a number of other single handed, GoPro focused gimbals on the market, some of them have been out a while. We have had a play with a few of them and they give a variety of results. For me it has always been about convenience. If you are going to have something highly portable it has got to be super quick to setup and use. Few of the competitors can deliver on this need.
To find out how we got on with the OSMO, check out the video below;
