DJI Launch New Osmo+ With Zooooooooooomm

After the launch last month of theDJI Z3 camera for the DJI Inspire & Matrice100/600, we all waited with baited breath to what they were going to do with the DJI Osmo.

Well here it is! The DJI Osmo+

Here’s what DJI have said about the Osmo+

Camera and Gimbal

What’s the difference between the Osmo and the Osmo+?

The Osmo+ uses a Zenmuse X3 zoom camera offering up to 7x zoom when shooting 1080p HD video. This is made up of a 3.5x optical zoom and 2x lossless digital zoom.

The Zenmuse X3 camera on the Osmo uses a 20mm prime lens with a fixed focal length and focus. It provides a 2x lossless digital zoom when taking 1080p videos.

Can I focus when shooting with an Osmo+? If yes, how?

Yes. The Osmo+ will automatically focus on where you tap on the screen.

What are the max. video and photo resolutions for the Zenmuse X3 Zoom camera?

4K video; 12 megapixel photos.

Can I take timelapse videos with Osmo+?

Yes.

Can I take long exposure shots with Osmo+?

Yes.

What Else?

How long can I shoot for with the Osmo+?

With the standard Osmo High Capacity Intelligent battery you can shoot up to 100 minutes.

Is Zenmuse X3 Zoom compatible with any aerial system?

No, because the software and hardware solutions of the two products are different.

What’s the operating temperature range for the Osmo+?

0℃ to 40℃ .

What’s the max. controllable range of the Osmo+?

25m in ideal situations. Actual range is dependent on the environment.

What kind of Micro SD card can be used on Osmo+?

Class10 and UHS1 or above.

Can I mount the Osmo+ on the Osmo Z-Axis?

Yes. As the Osmo+ is heavier, you will need to adjust the balance by turning the tension adjustment knob after mounting the Osmo+ on the Z-Axis.

Initial thoughts

So, reading between the lines it seems that the New DJO Osmo+ is a little heavier than the current X3 gimbal head. For all those Vloggers out there, DJI have shortened the Auto focus length, so is now 50cm (no-more arms length, arm ache) potentially making it the new must have vlogging camera.

The zoom is a game changer, although it looks like the zoom is restricted in 4K Image capture. Again the Z3 camera for the Inspire etc will not work on the Osmo+ & vice-versa.

For me, cannot wait to get my hands on one.
