The DJI Osmo: Is it worth it for news shooters?

I recently bought the DJI Osmo gimbal. I already have a Nebula 4000 gimbal but I wanted to try something with a built in camera.

Below is my short review video

In many ways it’s great bit of kit – it’s easy to use and can be carried around in your day sack. The picture quality in good light is fine but it’s awful in low light.

The biggest draw back for me is poor sound – though an external mic can be plugged in via a mini jack input.

I also find the camera drifts off axis a lot and the horizon then needs re-setting which can be tedious.

On the hole I would say it’s a useful bit of kit but if you are serious about gimbals then try something else.

Just a 6/10 from me on this one.
