Yea have looked into that option with a few other videographer. For a decent body, Lense, and the heavy duty gimbal, I’m looking around 2000 bucks vs the osmo original I got 200 bucks has done a good job just sucks in lower light. All one unit easy to grab and go. Not much set up time. It’s just dated and need to get better quality.
That's strange, I have an osmo pocket and have registered it with my premium Android smartphone and nothing went wrong there, and I used it perfectly fine with 2 budget LG Android smartphones. What phone are you using?My wife bought me one of those Osmo mini cameras and we quickly found out that, unlike normal cameras, the Osmo products won't work until you activate them.
So we tried the procedure, only to find out their activation only supports specific iPhone models and almost no Android devices. The connectors didn't even fit the micro USB on our phones. So long story short, we ended up returning the Osmo as unsuitable for use. Buy beware.
It's cool, but I'm hoping DJI releases some drones. I already have one if their smartphone gimbals, it's okay, but I can't stand filming for my phone. I also have an osmo pocket, and I think it is much better. But what I'm really excited for is that hasselblad clone camera they're working on, if it is any good!
It looks like the mavic mini will be released soon! I'm excited for that! If it is good enough and cheap enough maybe I'll get it for my little brother for Christmas! I just don't want him flying a phantom because of the danger and the price. I think that the mavic mini will be great! I'll finally have a drone I can point beginners to!That's what I was hoping for just didn't happen
