    Is the DJI OSMO a must have. This video review scores the system and answers that question.

    As a ground videographer as well, it's much more attractive than a Ronin-M and a DSLR...although I may have to splash out and get some kind of 3 axis gimbal for my Sony AX100 camcorder.

    I love the size. For me it's more about having something I can keep with me and film with at a moments notice. Its funny how much most complain about prices. I guess I'm a little spoiled. Been doing this a long time and my first camera was a piece of junk consumer camera that cost $1,500. While the OSMO is certainly not perfect it still impresses me because I can see incredible potential and many uses.

  4. I think for a run and gun vlogger... Yes. But to use for pro work the camera is just ok. Casey Nisate used it the other day for his blog. I think it has a place in the tool bag but then again I fly a dslr and Ronin-M and it's a dream!

    I was thinking about this yesterday. Seems like putting a Rode on it would be pretty simple.

    I just hope they bring out a different version where you can mount a camera of your choice but I dont think it's the DJI way.

    I love the OSMO it serves it's purpose. I am a LEO and we are in the process of purchasing a few, for documenting the exit of a crime scene (subsequent to said the scene being processed).

    No the osmo is not a must have. I have has one for quite a while and i wish i just had boughht a canon dslr. THe osmo has some really wied tendencies and i find myself constanly having to recenter the gimbal. as far as im concerned it should always do that. As a vlogging tool, it would drive me crazy. you pout it into selfie mode and the camera faces towards the operator. if you move around at all or spin with it in front, the camera is always lagging way behind and you always loose yourself in the shot. And finally its too **** slow for setup. I take mine dirt biking and hiking and all sorts and it just find it to be a pain to pull it out turn it on, then the wifi takes forever to link to your phone, and then takes some more time to link to phone then you finally have it and the shot is gone.
    Dont get me wrong. it has its time and place and is a great tool for filmmakers but I would absolutely us a dslr way more than my oso
