I've been trying to practice on my "ninja walk" to make that z-axis movement as smooth as possible. Of course I need to practice more and I guess it won't be possible to get rid of that movement completely. Any chance that there will be a Z-axis accessory for the OP in the future? DJI, what do you say?

Hi there, we really admire you for being interest with the DJI Product. With regards to that, we don't have any information yet if there will be a Z-axis for the Osmo Pocket, though this would be a great set up. Just keep in touch on our website for the further update. Thank you for your support!

The Z works pretty well for Osmo so yes would be nice if we could see one, I would imagine we might see a third party one on the market soon.

Hi and thanks for the reply. Yes I think it would be a great set up as well. I like the fact the Osmo Pocket can be used as it is and with various accessories to make it perform better/be used in different ways. It kind of makes it a pretty modular device. Still have a lot to learn about how to use it though to get the best out of it (my first gimbal ever).

I read a few, mostly positive, reviews on the Osmo Z-axis when I was about to order the Osmo X3 (never did order it though). Seems like a good accessory.

I agree that the Osmo Pocket can be used in various accessories. Just keep in touch on our website as far as I want to provide information, Unfortunately, we don't have any info yet from our dev and engineers if there will be a Z-axis for the Osmo Pocket. There's a saying that Innovation is not sleeping but they keep growing. Cheers and best regards!

The problem is, that one is no longer in production. Discontinued on their website.

Kinda not really ‘pocket’ anymore.

I do see this as being a good idea- surely the OP isn’t really heavy enough to be able to be used on a z arm.

If you’re adding this much kit to the OP you’re better off with the regular Osmo which has less movement on the z axis even without ban accessory.

The beauty is the size. I think this is the point people seem to be missing.

Adding more and more pushes the size bigger and the cost higher. You could get a Sony RX100 model and a regular small gimbal for less than kitting out the OP with a bunch of stuff. The footprint will be the same if not smaller and the video quality a tonne better.

It will have its moments of need.  I am not a professional and the OP fulfills my needs.  It is small when I want it to be, and yes it will make the footprint larger, but only larger at times I actually care to use it.  It does not mean I would use it full time.  Id rather have it and not use it, then not have it and need it.  At the end of the day it works and is not very costly.

Interesting! Just a bit bulky for the OP.

I absolutely agree with you there. Smaller version for the smaller Osmo!

Well, I kind of agree with you. Of course it won't be Pocket sized with too many accessories. But for me at least, it's about options. You can use it as a stand alone device which I do most of the time at the moment (mostly experimenting and getting to know the OP for now). But you also have to possibility to use what ever accessory you want/need when you want to get different footage. I pretty much see it as a modular device in a way.

ALSO.. at local home improvement stores they have drawers with all kinds of nuts, bolts, etc.. and one of the sections is all springs.. with the the exact same "keyring" ends like the one on that gimbal. I'm betting you can easily find a spring with a better balance than adding weight!

People tend to come up with various creative solutions. Always interesting and fun to see DIY projects.

Just how I see it. It's about the possibilities and options.

Great report!
if you place the mobile phone next to the osmo pocket in the gimbal, it may dampen the set more
here they also sell it:

I ordered one from Ebay and its in the post now from HK They might just be copies or old stock don't know.

I have a Original Osmo Mobile so if it works for both I'am happy it will be handy for certain situations

This is true .. if I can find suitable springs with right length and tension I need.

When it arrives I will try it out first and see how it handles the OP and post a video

It is all about having options for different situations ..  yes the OP can be used  as a standalone device, but the reality is the accessories allow you to use it in more creative ways.

I have a range of  DJI products and they all need accessories to get the best results...what to do

Really nicely made. Excellent uprights. Did you make them or repurpose something? I too would like to see some footage of how well it behaves. The whole setup is neat and tidy.

Start RC has stopped production of that version. On their own website, it is listed as discontinued but has been superseded by this version.

Older versions still seem to be around as old stock but for how much longer?
