    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).
