Osmo 4k

There is a new 4K camera being promoted to be available in November, the OSMO 4K stabiliser combo. From what I have seen on the net this appears to be a pretty good setup.
Has anyone had their hands on one yet ?

Re: Osmo 4k

I would like to know if it can be externally powered via Micro USB or something similar.

Re: Osmo 4k

I doubt it, DJI seem to be big fans of selling heavily marked up extra batteries

Re: Osmo 4k

Guess DJI wants to be sure OSMO is known, in last few days they have updated many things on the site

Re: Osmo 4k

Their "unboxing - part 1" video is hilarious, "remove the tape over the lid and flip over the cover" is said as instruction to open the box containing the Osmo.

Re: Osmo 4k

There's a 4K four thirds model as well but somewhat pricey though once they advertise it as splash resistant I'll get one.

Where did you buy it? I have been waiting on pre-order from B&H.

Re: Osmo 4k

Well I've got mine. Initial thoughts:

- Build quality is very good
- Stabilisation is very good (as you'd expect) although you do get shakes if you move it up and down quickly.
- Image quality is the main downside - but I only bought this with the intention of buying the X5 camera. I don't think it's "professional" image quality, especially with the issues with moire and aliasing.
- Low light performance is terrible. It's a small sensor, no way around that.
- Having no aperture control makes things difficult in bright conditions (ND filters are a must). It takes the same filters as the Inspire 1.
- Battery life isn't great (45-60 mins). But the batteries are fairly affordable and charge quickly (1 hour).

So, lots of downsides in my opinion. It's 1/3 of the price of the Ronin-M, so some sacrifice is understandable. But paired with the X5 micro 4/3 camera, I think this will be a winner.

Re: Osmo 4k

As Jody says, stabilisation is indeed very good.
This was a quick out-of-the- box test this morning. Hadn't gone into the menu to check shutter speed etc, so just shot at 4K 25p and rendered out in Sony Vegas to 1080 25p.
I need to set the camera up properly next time...

Re: Osmo 4k

That's the advantage of selling gimbal and camera combined, they can finetune the balancing settings in the factory so you don't have to deal with that anymore, that's the major shortcoming of all small 3 axis gimbals because they all require finetuning to get the shake or jitters out.
