November 28, 2018 -- DJI, the world's leader in creative camera technology, today announced Osmo Pocket, a highly compact three-axis stabilized camera created for everyone. Designed to be incredibly easy to use, Osmo Pocket offers a host of intelligent features to help capture creative videos and photographs in a portable form factor.

"Innovation is at the heart of every product we create and DJI Osmo Pocket is here to change the way photos and videos are captured, not just by professionals but by parents, couples, adventurers, travelers, and everyone in between," said Roger Luo, President at DJI. "Osmo Pocket is a portable personal camera crew and we can't wait to see how people use it to capture their stories and share them with the world."

Small yet powerful

At just over 4 inches tall, Osmo Pocket is DJI's smallest three-axis stabilized camera. It redefines DJI's family of handheld gimbals offering features never before seen in a product this compact. A 1/2.3-inch sensor records 12-megapixel photographs and 4K video up to 60fps at 100Mbps in stunning detail. Osmo Pocket also uses built-in dual microphones and advanced noise-canceling algorithms to ensure you capture high quality audio to match your footage. Furthermore, a battery life of up to two hours shooting video in 4K, 30fps means you can always rely on Osmo Pocket to capture your story no matter where you are at the very best quality.

Smooth, stable video

Building on DJI's experience creating gimbal technology, Osmo Pocket helps capture stable video for all of life's moments. The state-of-the-art three-axis mechanical gimbal compensates for movements and smooths these motions so you can focus on composition and subject matter. Whether you are taking videos of your vacation or documenting special holiday moments, Osmo Pocket helps ensure your video comes out smooth.

Simple and smart

Designed with ease of use in mind, Osmo Pocket doesn't just let anyone shoot cinematic footage; it empowers creativity. The gimbal camera uses a 1-inch integrated touch screen that provides a high quality live view as well as the ability to toggle through the various shooting modes, adjust settings, review footage and gain access to a full suite of creative features including:

  • ActiveTrack- DJI's image recognition algorithms allow Osmo Pocket to recognize and follow subjects of your choice, perfect for capturing family moments easily with the tap of your finger.
  • FaceTrack- FaceTrack takes ActiveTrack one step further. With enhanced ActiveTrack algorithms, FaceTrack automatically recognizes a human face and locks the subject in center of the frame at all times. It does not identify individual faces, but keeps the camera centered on one. To initiate FaceTrack, simply select selfie mode and the camera will detect your face.
  • Timelapse & Motionlapse- If you're looking to turn minutes into seconds, Timelapse is perfect for capturing unique content with the effect of the world moving faster around you, while Motionlapse adds the dynamic element of camera movement to your Timelapse.
  • FPV Mode- FPV Mode lets you capture your greatest adventures by recording video from your perspective. Instead of locking the gimbal to maintain the horizon, FPV tells the camera to follow your every tilt and lean, shooting dynamic footage exactly as you experienced it.
  • 3x3 & 180° Panorama- For capturing breathtaking wide-angle photos, Osmo Pocket offers two Panorama modes. 3X3 takes an expansive 9 images in total while 180° mode captures 4 images. Osmo Pocket software stitches them together automatically so you can focus on the framing of the scene.

Unlock the full power of Osmo Pocket

A universal port under the touchscreen allows users to connect their mobile devices that use iOS Lightning or USB-C. Upon connection, the new dedicated DJI Mimo app will automatically open and serves as a monitor, while in-app menu offers a variety of intelligent features and recording modes:

  • Story Mode -- Bring creative editing to your video with a host of preset music, video transitions and coloring. Choose one of 10 fun templates and Mimo will handle the camera movement for you. After finishing, Mimo automatically generates your very own short story, ready to be shared.
  • Pro Mode - If you want even more control over your content, "Pro mode" gives you access to camera setting adjustments and exposure settings to let you create exactly how you want, from rich video in bright conditions to a perfect handheld long exposure photo at night. Whatever you want to shoot, Osmo Pocket and DJI Mimo let you explore and expand your creativity. Osmo Pocket automatically detects and illuminates low-lit scenes into bright photos. This helps eliminates the need for a tripod, and you can rely on the gimbal to keep the camera still for a shutter speed of up to three seconds. Illuminate the dark, or capture the movement of light in a "light painting." You're only limited by your imagination.

A versatile tool with a range of accessories

An ecosystem of accessories unlocks the potential of Osmo Pocket:

  • Accessory Mount- The accessory mount makes Osmo Pocket compatible with action camera accessories so you're able to capture your adventure footage, such as when mounted on a helmet, backpack or your wrist.
  • Wireless Module- The wireless module supports Wi-Fi and/or Bluetooth transmission between Osmo Pocket and your smartphone, providing remote access to the camera feed and control of Osmo Pocket; perfect for setting up a Timelapse or Motionlapse on a busy city street.
  • Controller Wheel- The wheel allows you to precisely control gimbal movement (left-right or up-down) enabling you to easily adjust the composition of your shot. Re-center the gimbal or switch to selfie mode easily with dedicated buttons on the handle.
  • Expansion Kit- The expansion kit includes the Accessory Mount, Wireless Module and Controller Wheel.
  • ND Filters Set-** Specifically designed for Osmo Pocket, ND filters attach to the front of the camera to reduce the amount of light entering the sensor. The ND Filter Set offers several levels of filter darkness and allows for more control over the camera's aperture, exposure time, and sensor sensitivity settings.
  • Waterproof Case-** Bring a unique underwater perspective to your footage using the Waterproof Case which can be placed at a depth of 60 meters.
  • Extension Rod-** The Extension Rod attaches to the Lightning or USB-C port and provides 31 inches of reach to Osmo Pocket, opening a world of new creative angles that are normally difficult or impossible to get. A gimbal control joystick and camera button on the handle were designed for remote control when using the Extension Rod and a tripod was added to the bottom for expanded use cases
  • Charging Case-** This dual-purpose case not only protects Osmo Pocket while in transit but charges it as well. Dedicated sections were added into the case for your MicroSD card and ND filters so you can quickly grab your Osmo Pocket and know you're ready to capture those moments and adventures.
  • 3.5mm Adapter-** The 3.5mm Adapter allows you to connect an external microphone if you prefer to capture audio using a separate device.

Price and Availability

Osmo Pocket retails for $349 USD and will be available for pre-order at, DJI Flagship Stores, DJI Authorized Retailers and additional retailers beginning today, November 28th 2:15 PM EST.

SJCAM Gimbal 2 action camera gimbal Wed, 05 Dec 2018 15:51:31 -0700 Vitaliy_Kiselev 21058@/talks/discussions image

SJCAM, the action camera manufacturer, is pleased to announce the new Gimbal 2 is now available worldwide. Perfect for recording action whilst being immersed in it, the Gimbal 2 is compatible with SJCAM models such as the SJ8 Plus, SJ8 Pro, SJ8 Air and other popular action camera brands such as the GoPro Hero, YI Cam and Sony RXO.

The much-improved SJ Gimbal 2 comes with brushless motors and, unlike most gimbals, is able to perform 4 different functions:

  • Basic Follow Mode – this is the default function; a smooth horizontal-only rotation will occur towards the same direction as the Gimbal handle
  • Lock Mode – this keeps the gimbal locked in one particular direction. You can easily change the direction, pan and tilt using the joystick.
  • Free Follow Mode – gimbal will follow according to the direction at which the handle is pointing, including up and down
  • Selfie angle – Pressing the mode button twice switches the camera direction toward the person holding it – excellent for vlogging!

Where traditional servo gimbals are slow to react and can result in jittering in videos due to mechanical limitations, the brushless motors in the SJ Gimbal 2 rotate smoother and react instantly. This means the Gimbal 2 is very responsive, which results in judder-free, stable-looking videos. The 3-axis stabilization gives you more range of motion (320° tilting, 320° rolling and 640° panning) – and the third motor greatly reduces vibrations as it helps to counter any unwanted movements in the yaw axis.

The Gimbal 2 battery will last up to 6 hours on one charge, and the LED lights easily show you how much battery is left at a glance – each of the 4 LEDs accounts for 25% of battery charge. Any action camera mounted on the Gimbal 2 can be charged using the Gimbal’s battery – simply attach the included cable and you can add up to 90 minutes recording time. Finally, SJCAM’s Gimbal 2 can be seamlessly controlled via a Bluetooth-capable smartphone via the SJCAM Zone app.

The Gimbal 2 is now available on discounted sale from at RRP £77.60 or in a bundle with the SJCAM SJ7 Star action camera for RRP £222.59.

SJCAM’s SJ Gimbal 2 is now on a discounted sale when purchased as a bundle. One notable camera that it is currently bundled with is the SJ7 Star, a high-quality camera that shoots 4K videos and takes 16MP pictures. The focus on high quality build and the aluminium body makes the SJ7 Star stronger than other plastic action cameras on the market. Together with the ability to record in 4K, you can shoot videos in full HD 1080p at 120fps and any slow motion shots can also be recorded in full HD. The Star includes a waterproof case inside the box, which means you can take photos and videos up to 30m underwater for those activities that involve swimming. Its built in WiFi means you can immediately share photos and videos. Ideally paired, this bundle of action camera and gimbal costs just RRP £222.59.

Start capturing your next adventure with the SJ Cam Gimbal and SJ7 Star!

Parrot Anafi 4K HDR foldable drone - $699.99 Wed, 06 Jun 2018 19:54:18 -0600 PauloTeixeira 19832@/talks/discussions I'm going to the Azores and Portugal next month and thought of getting a new lens or 2 for the GH5 and now this news had to happen. I'll try to decide if I should get this. Looks interesting.


"Parrot, Europe's leading drone group and the world number 2 on the consumer segment, unveiled its new-generation drone, ANAFI, on Wednesday June 6, with a positive welcome from the media. Designed in Paris by Parrot's engineers, the ANAFI drone meets four essential needs: portability, image quality, performance and ease of use.

Today, ANAFI offers:

  • A 4K HDR camera with zoom, a 21MP sensor, a 3-axis stabilization system with, for the first time, a 180 ° vertically rotating camera and a lossless zoom up to x2.8
  • An impressive flight time of 25 minutes, made possible by a "bio-inspired" design combined with a smart battery
  • An ultra-portable, compact, rugged, lightweight and foldable UAV with a USB-C charging system
  • A new intuitive app (FreeFlight 6) with automated drone and camera movements

For Henri Seydoux, Parrot's Chairman and CEO and leading shareholder: "ANAFI represents a major breakthrough for Parrot and for the world of civil drones in general. By combining the best image quality with advanced features and simple use in an ultra-light and portable drone, Parrot, Europe's leading drone manufacturer, has created a drone that can not only record unforgettable memories at home, but also offers a range of benefits for businesses. We spent two years working on this, drawing on our software and hardware expertise and identifying the best components to offer ANAFI to users of today and tomorrow".

ANAFI: the future starts now

Parrot has created a new-generation drone, part-robot, part-insect, inspired by bees: light, powerful and agile, with an exceptional field of vision.

ANAFI is the first drone to offer 4K HDR and 4K Cinema with an integrated zoom, weighs in at just 320 gr, the lightest in its class, and delivers a top speed of up to 55 kmph and a range of 4 km, all without compromising on its flight time (25 minutes) or features (autopilot, smart image capture, shape recognition and tracking, etc.).

ANAFI can be pre-ordered from today and will be available from July 1 from and Amazon, as well as select retailers in France (Fnac-Darty, Boulanger), North America (BestBuy), the UK (Dixons Carphone), Germany (MediaMarkt Saturn), and gradually the rest of the world, at a price of €699, $699 or £629.

ANAFI: unrivalled image quality, zoom and ultra-mobile gimbal

ANAFI is the only drone on the market to offer 4K HDR video capabilities.

While successfully meeting the challenge of image quality, Parrot has taken a major technological step forward. To both open up access to drones for beginners and meet the needs of enthusiasts and professionals, ANAFI uses the best software and hardware solutions available today.

Its specially developed camera and latest-generation Sony sensor make it possible to create spectacular 4K HDR videos (30fps) and 21MP photos with detailed image quality. It benefits from a wide-angle lens (110°) and two aspherical lenses designed to limit stray light and chromatic aberrations, combined with HDR technology. ANAFI enhances the rendering of backdrop scenes, offers incredible detail and optimizes the balance between light and shadow, ideal for filming bright skies or sunsets anywhere in the world (temperatures from -10°C to +40°C).

With FreeFlight 6, its dedicated mobile app, ANAFI meets expert needs with a choice of three video modes: 4K Cinema (24 fps), 4K UHD (24, 25, 30 fps) and 1080p (24, 25, 30, 48, 50 or 60 fps).

ANAFI's camera is mounted on a 3-axis stabilized gimbal that combines the best mechanical and digital stabilization capabilities. Lightweight and extremely powerful, it makes it possible to take photos and videos that were previously impossible to achieve with a drone from this class, thanks in particular to a vertical tilt of -90° to +90° and a -40° to +40° horizontal tilt to ensure horizon stabilization. In addition to these mechanical features, Parrot's digital stabilization expertise (+5° to -5° EIS) enables the drone to deliver impeccable travelling, even at high speeds. This unique system limits the angular vibration to 0.004° for super stable photos and videos.

ANAFI includes a lossless zoom feature, with 1.4x for 4K and 2.8x in full HD (1080p). It is also equipped with a 3x digital zoom feature thanks to the oversampling techniques developed by Parrot on ANAFI's 21MP sensor (5344x4016), which offers a resolution that is 1.4x higher than 4K (3840x2160) and 2.8x higher than 1080p (1920x1080). For users, a simple button on the Skycontroller3 makes it possible to zoom in from a distance and discover unsuspected details of a building, take close-ups of people or observe wild animals. The zoom feature is enhanced with a unique effect that opens up the world of video production to everyone: the Dolly Zoom, enabling you to zoom in on a fixed subject while moving the background away.

ANAFI: light and powerful for exceptional ease-of-use

While ANAFI has unique photo and video capabilities for its class, its flight performance levels are unrivalled for a lightweight, compact drone and, thanks to its smart design, it is also the quietest drone in its class.

ANAFI has a range of up to 4 km in an open environment thanks to its smart, autonomous use of wifi channels, combined with omnidirectional protocols specially developed by Parrot. Each ANAFI foot is equipped with a dual-band antenna (2.4GHz and 5GHz) to optimize connections with the Parrot Skycontroller3 remote-control, whatever the drone's orientation.

ANAFI is able to achieve a best-in-class flight time of 25 minutes thanks to its polymer lithium battery designed to deliver the best power density in a small volume and a high rate of discharge. ANAFI's battery, which continuously monitors its charge level to be able to return to its take-off position, has an integrated charger, compatible with the latest universal, mobile USB standard (USB-C). It also adapts to the power source: it charges more quickly when it identifies a powerful charger and has a hibernation mode to protect its internal chemistry.

With ANAFI, drones are opening up to everyone thanks to the new FreeFlight6 app. Renowned for its high-quality, user-friendly software, Parrot has developed FreeFlight6, a modern, intuitive interface, specifically for ANAFI.

This app offers two manual control modes: Film and Sport. In sport mode, ANAFI achieves peak speeds of up to 55 kmph and can withstand winds of 50 kmph. Users can also customize a range of settings, from the drone's inclination and rotation speed to the speed of its camera tilt.

The interaction between the Skycontroller3 long-range remote control and the FreeFlight6 app makes it possible to control the gimbal and zoom with two dedicated ergonomic keys.

The flight interface adapts to all users: beginners have access to automatic control modes, such as SmartDronies or CineShots, while professionals can select or customize camera settings. Alongside this, the cameraman and FollowMe modes use a neural network to reevaluate the target track for each image, with a focus on the shape recognition tracking system, benefiting from a smart learning process that uses a database of images of people and vehicles.

With ANAFI, Parrot is once again driving a breakthrough in the drone world and redefining standards with a next-generation drone that is ultra-portable, equipped with a 4K HDR camera, super-efficient and easy to use. Parrot ANAFI is positioned to offer a better experience to customers, building up on a strengthened sales and marketing strategy, leveraging its digital marketing capabilities and partnering with key selected retailers worldwide. The Group has generated over €500 million in revenues on consumer drones since 2010, with average annual growth of 17%, and it intends to return to growth in 2018."

Autel EVO drone Fri, 12 Jan 2018 00:18:12 -0700 Vitaliy_Kiselev 18742@/talks/discussions image


At CES 2018, Autel Robotics USA announced its new flagship aircraft line, the EVO.

EVO is a portable camera drone with foldable arms and a sleek, compact form factor. We're incredibly excited about this product, and after showing it off at CES, are eager to get it out into the wild for our customers to enjoy.


  • 4K UHD 60FPS camera equipped on a 3-axis gimbal
  • Front & Downward (Computer Vision) and Rear (IR Sensor) Obstacle Avoidance Systems
  • 3.3 Inch built-in OLED screen remote controller with 720p live video
  • 30-minute flight time
  • Speeds up to 20 meters per second
  • 4300 mAh Li-Po Battery, 1.3 hour recharge time
  • 7km (4.2 mi) Range
  • Autel Explorer app allowing for intelligent flight features & more

We've been both humbled and honored by the overwhelmingly positive response to our announcement of the EVO. The EVO's expected price point at launch is $999.00 USD. The launch date for the EVO will be announced as we close in further on our release timeline.

While we are close to launching, we want to ensure that we deliver products that provide the utmost quality and reliability for our customers.

Last year at CES we set some expectations that we did not achieve. We were not able to deliver a high quality, reliable offering with the Thermal and 1" Sensor for our X‑Star series. There are many reasons that these units did not come to fruition.

We realize that a big part of meeting our delivery goals for our customers is refining our messaging to ensure that we can always do what we say we will do.

Moving forward with EVO we will focus on that goal of communicating clearly and never overpromising. As such, all we can say for now as to EVO's release date is "very soon". We'll publish details on our website and social media as soon as they are available.

Lanparte Gimbal for Smartphones and Gopro Tue, 20 Jan 2015 11:12:20 -0700 AKED 12216@/talks/discussions Hi

I recently bought the Lanparte gimbal HHG (present at our deal) .

It is very well made and looks and feels well worth the money.

For a smartphone it works really well. You can balance the smartphone well to a hiorizontal position and then switch the gimbal on and it works great. Smooth flying.

Filmed with the Iphone 6 First time I used the gimbal, so there is room for improvement while handling it. But it is really smooth.

I ordered the gopro case and attached the gopro to it. But when putting a gopro on it you cannot balance it. It has too much weight to the right front, depending on which version of the gopro your use. The Hero 4 silver silver has different balance as the Hero 4 black due to the screen for example. The Hero 3 is different again..

This is a gopro hero 4. image

You see it is out of balance. So I attached some weights to balance it otherwise the gimbal has to work too much just to have it horizontal and in balance.

Then I contacted the retailer and told him about the problems. I send some pictures what I did and how I did and he said he would contact Lanparte. A few days later he already got feedback. He has received another load of gimbals which have now an adjustable weight attached.

The old version only had the weight adjustable forward or backwards and now you can also adjusted sidewise. They send me a new gimbal and I can send the old one back. It will arrive tomorrow probably. This is great customer service.

Yuneec Mantis Q Wed, 15 Aug 2018 04:30:50 -0600 Vitaliy_Kiselev 20241@/talks/discussions image

Yuneec International, the world leader in electric aviation, today announced its all-new Mantis Q, the latest extension of Yuneec's award winning consumer lineup, is now available for pre-order in the United States. Mantis Q is an adventure ready drone controlled via mobile device or remote, features voice control technology and is small enough to tuck away inside a bag. The Mantis Q also features foldable arms for optimal portability and convenience, up to 33 minutes of battery life and autonomous flight modes with top speeds over 44 miles per hour. Due to its portability, ease-of-use and superior flight time, the Mantis Q is ideal for adventurers, families and drone enthusiasts. Now available for pre-order on, the Mantis Q starts at a suggested retail price of $499.99.

"The Mantis Q was developed to offer cutting edge, advanced drone features such as voice control and facial detection in an easy-to-use, ultra portable package," said Michael Jiang, CEO of Yuneec International. "Consumers will find that the Mantis Q seamlessly integrates into everyday experiences, and they will appreciate the incredible energy efficient package that allows up to 33 minutes of flight time to help capture every moment."

Voice Control

With the all new Voice Control feature, users can command Mantis Q just by using their voice. Voice control allows users to take a photo or begin recording video all without having to manually take their hands off of the controls, making it that much easier to capture the perfect shot. Mantis Q responds to commands such as  "Wake up" for powering on, "Take a picture", "Record a video" and "Take a selfie." It will also respond to the flight commands such as  "Take off" to automatically start flying and then come up to a hover or auto-landing commands such as "Return home".

Facial Detection and Gesture Control

Other notable features of the Mantis Q include its facial detection and gesture control. Users simply smile at the drone to activate face detection and as soon as the Mantis Q "sees" the user's face, it will take a photo from up to 13 feet away. In Gesture Control mode, Mantis Q will detect a hand waving and it will take a photo.

Capture your adventures in stunning 4K

Using an integrated camera, the Mantis Q records high resolution photos and videos. Pictures with a resolution of 4800x2700 (16:9) or 4160x3120 (4:3) pixels are saved in JPEG or DNG format on the included MicroSD card; the same goes for up to 4K of recorded videos. In up to Full HD (1920x1080), they are electronically stabilized live. The camera can be tilted upwards by up to 20 degrees or downwards by 90 degrees during flight. For cinematic camera flights, the Mantis Q also comes with automatic flight modes such as Journey, Point of Interest and Orbit Me.

Category-leading flight time and ultra-portable design

Thanks to its energy-efficient design, the drone can stay in the air for up to 33 minutes, allowing pilots plenty of time to record great photos and video clips. When folded together, the Mantis Q measures just 6.6 x 3.8 x 2.2 inches and weighs just 1 pound. It's the ideal companion for big and small adventures alike.

Indoor and outdoor flying

Unlike most in its class, Mantis Q comes equipped with advanced indoor stabilization technology. Down-facing dual sonar sensors and infrared detection make it safe enough to fly indoors and outdoors. Users also have the option to fly Mantis Q with and without the added controller.

Fast-paced fun while flying

If users want to experience the thrill of drone racing, they can switch to the Mantis Q's Sport Mode. The Mantis Q can fly up to a maximum speed of 44 miles per hour -- and that's all while performing with the agility of a real racer. The live image can be viewed with a latency of less than (200ms) on a smartphone which is connected to the remote control.

The Mantis Q is available now for pre-order at

Mantis Q - $499.99: Mantis Q, controller, one battery, spare propellers  (one set) three-port charger, power and USB cable.

Mantis Q (X-Pack) - $649.99: Mantis Q, controller, three batteries, travel shoulder bag, spare propellers (one set), three-port charger, power and USB cable. Available later this year.
