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 Osmo the handheld 4K Camera with 3 Axis gimbal is here

The DJI Osmo, which is a standalone 4K camera with a 3-axis gimbal in a neat handheld package has arrived. One of the prototypes of this device was shown off at CES in January in Vegas. It has since been tweaked and changed quite a bit. To see the Osmo Unboxing and Sample Footage shot with the Osmo see the end of the article. What can this bad-boy do? First there are two parts to the Osmo. The camera and the handle. Let’s take a look at the camera first. The Osmo camera uses the Sony Exmor R CMOS 1/2.3” sensor we know and love from the Inspire 1’s camera. It will feature a non-fisheye warped lens similar to the Inspire 1’s X3. The Osmo X3 camera has been mechanically changed to be better suited for handheld use. I’m guessing that means a few measure to increase robustness and durability as the camera on the Osmo will get bumped harder and more frequently than on an aerial platform. The gimbal has also been modified. It enables the option to be locked and flattened. The orientation of the tilt motor was changed as well as other smaller changes. The settings for the gimbal and camera can be changed in the DJI GO App. Phantom 3 and Inspire 1 pilots know this app from flying their drones. In the app, you will be able to change the gimbal settings/profiles, follow modes and control stick settings. If you already own an Inspire 1 you will be able to use your Inspire 1’s X3 camera and gimbal with the Osmo. The X3 camera from the Osmo is also compatible with the Inspire 1. Pricing and availability of the Handle only are TBA. The Inspire 1 camera will need a firmware update through the DJI GO App and then it will be ready for use. The smartphone doesn’t have to be mounted in the mobile mount on the handle. It can be operated from anywhere up to 25m (82 ft) from the device. A fully charged battery will get you 60 minutes of footage or 6 hours of standby time. The included battery charger will charge the battery in another 60 minutes. The device is not waterproof. You get an ISO range of 100-3200 for video and 100-1600 for photos. Shutter Speed settings range from 8s – 1/8000s. You can also capture exposures up to 30seconds while the camera is in M (Manuel) mode. The image size will be 4000×3000 pixels. The normal photo modes are available such as: Single Shot Burst mode (3/5/7 shots) AEB (Auto Exposure Bracketing) 3/5 bracketed frames Interval Timelapse Auto Panorama (where...

DJI teases Us with Reimagine Movement Event

                        Update: The DJI OSMO is now available! Get your own here. And there it is a new teaser on the DJI website. Reimagine Movement the text reads with a colorful lens mount sort of graphic in the background. What will get released and when? The when is easy to answer: London: Thursday, October 8 – 5:45 pm China: Friday, October 9 – 12:45 am Los Angeles: Thursday, October 8 – 9:45 am The “what” is of course harder to say but here’s what we know: DJI just received a new trademark for the “OSMO” on Sept. 17th. It is listed for various keywords some including Camera gimbals; handheld camera gimbals; camera mounting devices; support devices for camera stabilization; devices for gyro stabilization; pan tilt head; gimbal head; We will most likely see a version of the DJI handheld gimbal for the Inspire’s X3 camera which was introduced at CES in January, which we still haven’t seen ship yet, but adapted to include its own camera so even non-Inspire 1 owners can get smooth stable gimbal supported video. On a popular VLOG the host claimed to have been sent a camera from DJI and is seen laying on the counter of his house. DJI of course has a video for the event which you can checkout here: The video teases with phrases such as: What we seek to capture and what we are moved to create is born from an undeniable vision to not only transform but to redefine 10.8.15 If you noticed it as well, all footage shown in the video is taken from the ground, so no aerial footage was shot. This is one fact which strengthens the theory of the handheld gimbal camera. We can only hope the price is below $6-800. This will be a popular item during holidays this year, that is for sure. Stay tuned for Updates to this Story...
