Re: Dji osmo

The Osmo product is the handle (which also includes battery, logic board, plugs, controls, etc.) Zenmuse is the gimbal. X3, X5... those are the cameras.

The base Osmo includes the Zenmuse X3 (gimbal and camera) and the Osmo handle. You can buy the X5 or X5R with Zenmuse Gimbal to replace the Zenmuse X3 that comes with the base Osmo. It's my understanding that later there will be an Osmo X5 package, but not yet. Right now you have to buy the X3 and, later, the X5 upgrade.

I just ordered the X3 edition to see if the gimbal can do the type of shots I want. If so, I'll definitely be adding either a second unit or will upgrade the camera/gimbal to the X5 or X5R (need to see some reports on their various quality... some early reports are that the compression kills the benefits of the X5 without Raw.)

Not even close.. The X5 is a micro 4/3 camera with interchangeable lenses, and it's not much bigger than a GoPro. Worth every penny if you ask me.

If you don't need to change lenses or shallow DOF, then you can spend ~$600 on the base model with the X3 which still shoots very nice 4K video.

Re: Dji osmo

I am sure it is a very fine camera system and at $5K not including all the accessories, priced to compete with professional systems. However, I think my remark is more, the marketing seems to be consumer oriented. I can see how this could work on a professional level. But once on that level, I would be more apt to look at better known professional cameras married to a gimbal. Perhaps DJI can change that perception through time.

You're right it does seem to be marketed to consumers. But that's the $649 X3 model. The quality of the X5 micro 4/3 model would no doubt rival cameras like the GH4, and it's under $2800 (I'm not sure where $5k comes from?) the gimbal. A GH4 + Ronin-M would cost a lot more than that.

Re: Dji osmo

$5k is for the X5 version that shoots Cinema RAW files.

Re: Dji osmo

Maybe DJI will pay someone from this board to produce a marketing video aimed at pro's.

You can now order components separately

Re: Dji osmo

Just a thought, but as the Osmo can be controlled remotely from iPhone/Android, it could be mounted on a pole, which in turn is mounted on a tripod, then Bingo! - you have a Polecam...

Re: Dji osmo

Yes Craig, I've seen that. However, I was referring to a much longer pole - maybe 12 foot- as with the Polecam.

Re: Dji osmo

I shot some video recently with the GoPro using a Feiyu-Tech GS4 mounted on a monopod. I was at a vineyard on uneven ground with the action moving at a very fast pace. The shots are not perfect but it gave me the effect of using a crane in an area where a crane was not practical. I also shot with an AX70 but anything that looks like a crane and most walking shots are the monopod/GS4/Gopro setup. Overall it worked out really well for me and was very light and mobile. I love the idea of being able to use a similar set-up with a raw camera once the price goes down.
