DJI Osmo Mobile leaked – Zenmuse M1 Handheld Gimbal for your Smartphone

  UPDATE 2: The Osmo Mobile is out and available for $299. Check it out here! UPDATE: The release has been confirmed by an anonymous source! The product will most likely be called the DJI Osmo Mobile and will feature the Zenmuse M1 gimbal described below. The DJI Zenmuse M1 was just leaked! It’s a Handheld Gimbal which holds your Smartphone and is based on the Osmo series. DJI is holding an Announcement on Sept. 1st in Berlin at the IFA Show, for which they updated their Homepage with the teaser “Beyond Smart”. We now know it will be the newly leaked DJI Zenmuse M1 Gimbal. The FCC ID location clearly confirms that the Zenmuse M1 Gimbal will be for Smartphones. It will be similar to the known and tried DJI Osmo which just received a spec-bump with the DJI Osmo+ giving it a Zoom camera lens and extended battery life. The Zenmuse M1 Handheld Gimbal will be officially announced at the IFA Tradeshow in Berlin on Sept. 1st. The FCC ID clearly shows the DJI Zenmuse M1 with model id ZM01 The Handle The Handle of the Zenmuse M1 Gimbal will be the same as on the normal DJI Osmo and the newly released DJI Osmo+. It will therefore be compatible with the normal DJI Osmo Intelligent Batteries including the 980 mAh standard Osmo battery and the 1225 mAh “High Capacity” battery which comes standard on the DJI Osmo+. It also allows for compatibility with the existing accessories available for the DJI Osmo. The Zenmuse M1 Gimbal on the DJI Osmo Mobile The Gimbal will be compatible with all recent Smartphones, but most likely demo’d and illustrated with the Apple iPhone 6S and iPhone 6S Plus. Apple new iPhones releasing at the Sept. 7th Media Event will also be compatible. Of course the Android devices of choice will also work. The Smartphones will most likely need to run the DJI Go App to adjust the gimbal motors based on which phone you have attached. Additionally, you will be able to use the App to control manual controls that you have become used to on the Osmo series of cameras. Availability & Price We expect to be able to place orders the same day with shipping in 15-20 days. This makes the expected Shipment Date for the DJI Zenmuse M1 the 10th – 12th of September. As with most DJI releases the combo of the Osmo Handle with the Zenmuse M1 Gimbal will be available right away with the Gimbal separately perhaps lagging a few days behind. The rumored price for the Gimbal itself is around $199. We hope to see...

DJI launches the Osmo+ (Plus) with optical zoom

DJI launched the latest version of the popular stabilized handheld camera also known as the Osmo. The latest release called the DJI Osmo+ (Plus) features a modified version of the Z3 gimbal and camera just recently launched for the Inspire 1. How is this Osmo+ different from the original Osmo? For one the new Osmo+ features a new 22-77mm (35mm equivalent) zoom lens allowing a total of 7x zoom consisting of 3.5x optical zoom and 2x digital lossless zoom (the fine print for the lossless digital zoom; is when filming in 1080p). This means if you’re shooting in 4K you will be able to take advantage of the 3.5x optical zoom, just not the digital 2x zoom. The Osmo in comparison has a prime 20mm (35mm equivalent) lens with no optical zoom. As with most zoom lenses at the telephoto end, meaning the lens is zoomed in, there is less light able to enter the lens as when it’s wide open. On the Osmo+ this means F2.8 on the wide end and F5.2 on the telephoto end. The new X3 Zoom gimbal weighs 47grams (1.65oz) more than the normal non-zoom X3. The minimum focus distance has been moved down to 50cm (1.64ft) allowing for even better selfies and other close-up shots, both for photo and video. The sensor is the same in both Osmo models, the 1/2.3″ Sony Exmor R CMOS featuring 12.40M effective pixels. The Osmo+ has the new Zenmuse X3 Zoom gimbal, similar to the Z3 Zoom gimbal for the Inspire 1 and larger drones it supports the camera on both sides. The good news is it doesn’t affect the controllable range of the Osmo+. You will get the same -35° to +135° of Tilt, ±320° of Pan and ±30° of Roll that you got on the normal Osmo. Update: The new Zenmuse X3 Zoom Gimbal and Camera which ships on the Osmo+ is now available for existing DJI Osmo owners here. Interestingly the video resolutions are slightly different on the Osmo+ than the normal Osmo. 4K, UHD, 2.7K are the same, yet at 1080p the Osmo+ claims to only go up to 100p vs 120p on the Osmo. These faster fps (frames per second) settings are used for the slow motion feature. The Osmo+ also doesn’t list any 720p (1280 x 720) settings. These differences could of course, be brought out via a software update as the internals of the camera could essentially be the same. New OS1C11 Charger for the DJI Osmo+ (Plus) One bigger difference between the two models is the intelligent battery. The new Osmo+ comes with a (HB02-542465) “High Capacity Intelligent Battery”. This newer battery holds 1225mAh vs 980mAh in the normal (HB01-522365)...

DJI Osmo 2 Leaked

DJI Osmo 2 Leaked

Update: The leaked 4th axis or Z-Axis stabilizer pictured in the leaked photographs below are now available for purchase. It isn’t the DJI Osmo 2 quite yet, but an improvement to the existing DJI Osmo. The item is called the Osmo Z Axis and allows you to stabilize that up and down movement you get when you are walking trying to hold the camera steady in front of you. The rumor mill has been strong lately. With the DJI Phantom 4 Announcement expected on March 1st, there hasn’t been a shortage of exciting Leaks and Rumors. Now the topic of the latest leak is the DJI Osmo 2. With the current Osmo being released just in October of last year, we don’t think this is anywhere close to a production quality Osmo 2 but instead an engineering prototype. Here you can see it laying on the table attached to the RODE Video Micro mic. It features two parallel support bars which separate the X3 camera from the Osmo handle. Most likely the goal is to stabilize the camera on the vertical axis, as this is the axis which would benefit the most from additional stabilization on the Osmo. Here you can see the two parallel support bars which connect the Osmo 2 grip to the familiar X3 gimbal and camera. At least one of the support bars would have to be hooked up to a brushless motor to allow the X3 camera to be stabilized vertically. Another angle of the 4th axis stabilization system of the rumored DJI Osmo 2. Additional features of the Osmo 2 which are on the top of wishlists of Osmo users are: 60-90min min battery life Quieter fan to cool the camera components Ability to connect mobile device per cable to the Osmo Improved tracking ability & ability to follow movement autonomously What are some features you are hoping for in the DJI Osmo 2? Let us know in the comments...
