As the follow-up to the popular Phantom 3, the Phantom 4 offers a wide range of new features, such as an obstacle avoidance system and ActiveTrack, which grants this drone the ability to track any given subject. Other than that, the Phantom 4 also sees the introduction of a very interesting feature: Sport Mode, which increases the speed of the drone considerably. In this mode, the Phantom 4 has a top speed of about 70kmph.
As for the Osmo, it is a 4K camera with a three-axis gimbal stabilisation technology: a feature that isn’t very common on consumer products. Thanks to this technology, the Osmo is able to take very stable videos. As for hardware, the Osmo is packing a 12MP Sony Exmor sensor with 94-degree wide angle lens, which can take video recordings in 4K, Full HD as well as 720p; it can also shoot 1080p videos at up to 120fps.
The DJI Phantom 4 will go on sale sometime this month, and it can be purchased from Harvey Norman, Machines, as well as All IT Hypermarket. According to a Lazada representative, the Phantom 4 will also be available for pre-order on the site later today.
In terms of pricing, the Phantom 4 will retail at RM6,199 in Malaysia, while the Osmo has a RM2,499 price tag; we were told that both of these prices are not inclusive of 6% GST.
