As much as we love drones, we know that sometimes, a drone is not the right tool for a given situation. When we need to get close, low, and stable, we rely on the DJI Osmo.
The Osmo uses the Zenmuse X3--the same camera used on the Inspire 1--mounted on a handle and three-axis gimbal. It uses a number of accessories, including a RØDE microphone system, to ensure high-quality sound capture to go with the smooth video.
The Osmo comes with all the framerate and resolution options of its drone-mounted kin, but it also comes with an automatic panorama feature, as well as three different operating orientations, which makes it a versatile tool for ground-based filming.
The Osmo is ideal for panoramic photography, with a built-in panoramic feature on the wide-angle lenses.
The Osmo is also built for long-exposure and time-lapse photography.
