I know a lot of people were waiting for this, and it's finally here - the official DJI OSMO X5 Adapter to (properly) mount that Mirrorless X5 Interchangeable Lens camera.

This is pretty big news for those looking for the smallest combination of ILC and 3-Axis Gimbal. But with a bigger camera this means shorter battery life. So DJI has also announced an OSMO external battery extender. The battery extender allows for a DC input, or you can get an optional cable to connect directly with one of your DJI Drone batteries.

And for active shooting to where you need additional stabilization on vertical movements (up/down running, jumping, car mount, etc), they've added a Z-Axis arm accessory that works like a mini Steadicam ISO Arm.

DJI has certainly thought of just about everything, but the X5 camera isn't cheap (unless you already have an Inpsire1 Pro). The X5 is a micro four-thirds camera and starts at $1699 (here).

And just in case you're not familiar with the DJI OSMO, here's an introductory video showing the basic version with the entry level X3 camera.

Of course you can improve the OSMO system greatly by adding some of the new accessories and camera mentioned in this article.

I would have to say that i'm never far from a camera. The iPhone works ok, but I really like the features of a DSLR's. I've been looking very closely to the Olympus Pen camera models as a solution because sometimes it's not a good idea to keep the 5D Mark II in the trunk of the car while i'm cruising the mall. Everyone is talking about Sony's new lineup as the new Game Changer in DSLR video cameras. The Nex-3 and the Nex-5 are soon to be released, main difference between the two are how the bodies are made. One beefier than the other as well as more advanced video recording features in the Nex-5. Sony is also talking about a concept Video camera that will accept the same interchangeable lenses as the Nex's. Where you at Canon?

After reading the writeup at BHPHOTOVIDEO.com, and checking out some of the sample photos, new 'sweeping panoramic' features, and fancy 6 photo analyzing 'Twilight mode', I think i'm sold on this one when it becomes available.
