DJI the popular drone maker which made heads turn with the Phantom, Phantom 2 and then the re-imagined Inspire 1 which lets you record 360º video without the legs of the drone coming in the way (they built it from the ground up) along with a dedicated 4K video camera using a 12mp chip from Sony.
The company has created a device that competes with professional equipment but it’s target is the action camera using GoPros for sports where the camera is used without stabilization.
The gymbal is the magic, but the package that DJI built in the OSMO’s pistol grip with controls easily accessible via your trigger finger and thumb make it a perfect tool to shoot videos on the move.
The OSMO went on sale October 26th 2015 and I got mine a couple days later and I’m loving it and can’t wait to shoot amazing shots and scenery.
The camera can also shoot 1080 @120fps for slow motion and 1080 @60fps for smooth video.

This is beautiful!! The brand new Hero4 Session camera by GoPro is just amazing, small, light and super clean! I’d love to get my hands on these babies and replace my GoPro Hero3 Black (but of course these can’t do 4K).
With their super light weight and small form-facture, make them the perfect companion to mount on your head, helmet, chest and close to you so you can focus more on the sport you’re enjoying and less on how much additional weight you’re carrying.
You get pretty good usage for how tiny it is, between 1hour 45minutes to 2 hours when using it with the GoPro App or with the wifi off respectively.

GoPro on Monday announced a new $400 action camera, the Hero4 Session, a cube-shaped device said to be half as big and 40 percent lighter than other Hero4 models, while still offering many of the same features including wireless connectivity to Apple’s iPhone.
Adobe just announced an updated suite for the Creative Cloud subscribers with enhanced applications and added functionality. Those with creative cloud subscription will automatically get the updates along with the ability to keep older versions or simply replace them.
A lot of the designers and developers were moving away from Adobe Fireworks and Photoshop in recent years due to Adobe not giving us updates for Fireworks and it’s vast ability to do something that UX designers and designers in general loved; Pages! Yes each page could be a standalone page and have the ability to share assets from other pages.
With Fireworks getting stuck in 32-bit java code world, we all started looking to alternatives, Bohemian Coding created Sketch from the ground up as a 64-bit application for OS X and brought in features from Fireworks in a different way in the form of Artboards.
We’ve used artboards before in Illustrator but Artboards in Sketch gave you a totally new way of constructing application design, may it be mobile, web or desktop.
Sketch also gave us pages and the ability to create symbols and other neat features, besides it being a completely vector driven design workflow.
For at least 3 years we as designers have been using Fireworks and switching over to Sketch. Adobe saw a lot of designers leaving their tools and decided to do what they knew would keep the designers (who hadn’t switched yet)
Adobe finally brought Artboards to Photoshop CC 2015 and they’ve done it very close to how Sketch treats artboards. Popular prototyping application InvisionApp is already supporting Photoshop Artboards and with it expanding it’s user base yet again.
I still have to experiment with Photoshop and see how it plays with creating multi-size exports like Sketch does. But the plug-in support alone still gives Sketch the upper hand, but those familiar with Photoshop will certainly love this new feature of Artboards lifted from Illustrator and given new meaning.
