The DJI Zenmuse X5 video camera and 3 Axis Gimbal with 15mm lens sells for $2,199. Compared to what an equivalent system would cost just a few years ago, this is a reasonable price. There are cheaper systems available. We are awaiting reviews on some of the lesser known Chinese brands to see whether they are a value or a bust.
The DJI Osmo will set you back $649 but it appears a better value than a GoPro for some applications. We have never been satisfied with the lack of optical stabilization in the GoPros and preferred the Sony units for that reason. Thus we are excited for the DJI Osmo as it’s a complete unit. Let’s hope the bit rates and codecs are adequate.
You can see more information about the OSMO at the DJI website.
