The reason I am writing you is that I remember an earlier article when someone was analyzing if the DJI Oslo was a potential candidate for architectural video or not and I think the verdict was rather not.
A month ago I flew to Rio on a work assignment to photograph and film a Penthouse there and my main gimbal which would work with my GH4 would not work properly and I had to use my Osmo which I brought only to film our outdoor adventures. Well, I think the Osmo did a good job and I do believe that it is a worthy candidate for low budget or add on videos for anyone. Here is the link to the film.
In that video, all the footage was shot with the Osmo. The client had 2 apartments in the same building and I started with the lower one and got hardly any footage with the GH4 as my CameTV-mini2 gimbal was not working. So by the time I got to the PH apartment (featured in the video) I was only using the Osmo. To be honest, even with the Osmo I had issues… whenever was panning with it, by the and of the pan the Osmo lost the horizon… this is something I yet to find a solution for. But I am pleased with the video quality of the Osmo, it has a nice dynamic range just like my Phantom 3. As for the drone, I was using the Phantom 3 Pro drone with the built-in camera.
I like it! While you can find some minor faults with the interior video I think it is very acceptable. It would also make a nice ad for DJI. Demonstrates what you can do with just DJI gear. I think it is a great presentation of this special property. Can you imagine getting this kind of aerial footage just a few years ago? Drone technology has come a long way very quickly!
