DJI made some noise earlier this year when they dropped the DJI Osmo, a 3-axis gimbal system with a built-in 4K camera. With the exception of the microphone issues, which have been addressed, the device is an impressive one, putting out incredibly stable footage that competes with steady cam rigs many times its size and even more its price tag.
That said, there are always methods of improving DJI’s Osmo. One of those is to create a DIY chest mount as YouTuber Savi You has.
Using nothing more than a few spare GoPro mounting plates, Savi You has turned the hand-held device into a hands-free gimbal system that combines DJI-level stabilization with the convenience of a GoPro.
According to Savi You, the process is as simple as ‘[cutting] off the boltside of the J-Hook Mount so it fits on the Handlebar Mount [then screwing] it together.’
Once finished, simply attach the rig to your GoPro chest mount and you’re good to go. Watch the video for a visual rundown.
Overall, it looks like a nice setup that yields impressive results.
