The DJI Osmo — the handheld gimbal that brings silky smooth drone footage to the ground, is now on sale.
Osmo’s price has been slashed from $738 to $569. DJI surprised dronies in October 2015 when they launched Osmo, which isn’t intended for drones at all. It’s a tiny, hand-held device (what’s known as a “three-axis gimbal” in videography) that integrates with cameras made by DJI and allows for video shot by people on the ground to have the smooth, gliding look of footage shot by an airborne drone. It comes with a 4K, 12-megapixel camera.
DJI will also throw in two free batteries and an extra charger if you purchase through this link this summer.
Osmo is a supplemental device for filmmakers, including the crew that made Drona.
