To open and edit DJI OSMO 4K MP4/MOV footage in Avid Media Composer smoothly, you'd better transcode OSMO 4K files to Avid more "edit" friendly codec like DNxHD and downscaling 4K to 1080p is much easier for editing.
The Osmo consists of four parts: a Zenmuse X3 three-axis gimbal with a camera, an ergonomic handle with all the control buttons, a 10.8Wh battery and a phone clamp. For those who are already flying an Inspire 1, its Zenmuse X3 module needs no introduction. This fan-cooled gimbal-camera is powered by Sony's 1/2.3-inch 12-megapixel sensor that can record videos of up to 4K resolution -- 4,096 x 2,160 at 24fps or 3,840 x 2,160 at 30fps/24fps, to be exact -- with a maximum video bitrate of 60 Mbps. If you want a smoother video, you can go up to 60fps at either 1080p or 720p, or even do slow motion with 120fps at 1080p. As with the drone version, you get a 20mm f/2.8 lens with a 94-degree field of view. The gimbal is also where you insert your microSD card, which needs to be of at least Class 10 or UHS-1. Obviously, the faster the write speed, the better.
