The drone camera might soon become passe. For, DJI, the world leader in creative imaging technologies including drones, is bringing in the DJI Osmo hand-held camera. Hand-held cameras are not new, but DJI’s uses its unique three-axis gimbal stabilisation technology to eliminate all shake and create cinematic shots in an easy-to-use, easy-to-set up form factor.
In India, Osmo is priced at Rs 69,990 and will be available through retailers in 10 key cities including the five metros and also via direct shipping from authorised distributor, SSTPL.
The Osmo has a modular format that makes it fully compatible with DJI’s Zenmuse camera series, but comes standard with a 4K, 12-megapixel camera with a 1/2.3” sensor and a 94° field-of-view lens. Intelligent controls built into the handle make changing between shooting angles, capturing photos or recording video effortless.
Plus there is the DJI GO mobile app that lets creators view live images of what the camera captures, adjust camera settings and control smart filming functions. The smart filming functions include Panorama where the camera will automatically pan around 360°, taking and stitching overlapping photos to create a panorama, Long Exposure using the camera’s stabilisation technology and Slow Motion at 120 frames-per-second.
Additional accessories include a tripod, extension rod, bike mount, universal mount and a straight extension arm.
