The Osmo is a 4K, 3-axis stabilized handheld camera from DJI. Say goodbye to shaky videos.

Take long exposure shots with absolute crispness and sharpness, even without a tripod. That’s what DJI promises to users of their new product, the Osmo. Does not fly, but will take your video higher.

The stabilization system in the Osmo, says DJI, keeps the camera totally still so you can freehand capture stills of up to 2 seconds. With practice, you can get even longer shots. Now you can capture night time cityscapes, or blur out your subject’s background the moment inspiration strikes. Motion without blur. Action shots without shake. Perfect video even when you move.

Thanks to advanced technologies specifically designed to keep the camera flat no matter how you move it, the DJI Osmo helps you record videos and take photos like never before. It is much more than just a camera. It helps you create with more freedom than ever.

The Osmo brings DJI’s recognized leadership in camera stabilization down to the ground and into your hands. A 3-axis stabilization system completely integrated with the camera cancels out your movements in three directions so it stays still even if your hands shake or wobble. This is the first time this technology is available in a camera you can hold.

The grip on the Osmo is precisely engineered with materials selected for comfort and durability, and designed to ergonomically fit the palm of your hand. Conveniently placed buttons and controls keep important functions by your thumb for instant access. Put your smartphone in the included Phone Holder to see what your camera sees and control it with a tap of your finger. Your phone is also the home of all the Osmo’s powerful intelligent shooting modes. All of DJI’s Smart Shooting modes can be controlled and triggered by remote control from within the DJI GO app on your smartphone. Mount the Osmo on a tripod, or any of the other available mounts, and take a few steps back to a position from where you can easily overlook the scene and control the camera.

The Osmo’s Zenmuse X3 camera works as one with the stabilization system. It brings you 4K video at 24, 25 or 30 frames per second so you could even shoot for the big screen, and captures photos at 12 megapixels in Adobe DNG RAW, opening up shots that you never thought possible before.

The Osmo is also compatible with the all-new Zenmuse X5 series of cameras, bringing you highly stabilized imaging with all the benefits of a large M4/3 sensor.

An integrated microphone allows onboard audio recording. With advanced controls like audio gain settings, you can be sure you’re not only getting the shot but also capturing the sound. A standard 3.5mm port is also available, so you can plug in your own microphone.

The DJI Osmo costs $649.
