Benefits of Using: You can capture cinematic style video with panning and tilting while hand-holding your iPhone and that is pretty awesome. You can walk, run, ride your bike and get really smooth video with no shake. The Osmo works with the DJI Go App allowing you to take hand-held time-lapses, slow-motion, long-exposures and even go Live on YouTube. The tracking feature is only available in the app, but it’s quite impressive. Your camera will follow you around. Think of giving a presentation or demonstrating something and the camera will stay with you. Great for One Man Bands like myself.

Very cool and handy tool!

I am available for hire

or to collaborate? If you are smarter than me and know how you might need a strategic thinker with a lot of technical knowledge and creative skills. I’m still figuring out what I want to be when I grow up.
