DJI, the company behind popular Phantom drones has launched a new fully integrated, stabilized handheld 4K camera. DJI is calling the device Osmo and it comes with a standrad 12-megapixel camera.
DJI Osmo comes with company’s signature three-axis gimbal stabilisation technology which eliminates the shake of traditional handheld devices. DJI says Osmo can be used to create cinematic shots and is extremely easy to use and setup.
The Osmo is compatible with DJI’s Zenmuse camera series but the standard 12-megapixel camera is capable of 4K video and has a 1/2.3-inch image sensor. The camera has a 94 degree field-of-view lens.
“DJI consistently refines the way cameras move in space – whether they are in the air or on the ground. With the Osmo, we have created a camera specifically designed to capture a smooth moving image regardless of filming conditions,” said Frank Wang, CEO and Founder, DJI.
With Osmo, DJI has built all the controls right into the handle which makes switching between shooting angles, capturing or videos effortless. the universal mount works with an included smartphone holder and users can add optional accessories including tripod, bike mount or an extension arm.
While the Osmo comes with an onboard camera, it can also bought separately. The Osmo’s handle is equipped with an on-board stereo microphone and also has a 3.5mm audio jack for connecting audio peripherals. With drones banned in India, DJI plans to bring Osmo to India very soon.
