All this week, News 12's gadget guru Andrew Ehinger has been checking out the hottest tech gifts for the holidays. 

In the last installment of The Download: Hot for the Holidays segment, he looked at the DJI Osmo.

The DJI Osmo is the next evolution of the action camera - it brings with it professional cinema quality stabilization making shaky videos a thing of the past.

The Osmo is a motorized gimbaled camera similar to ones found on movie or television sets. But this one fits in the palm of your hand. It uses a smartphone as a wireless display, which also gives the user full control over the camera's settings and makes for easy uploads to the net. 

DJI is also the world's most popular drone maker. The Osmo's camera is similar to ones found in DJI's quadcopters - so it knows how to absorb unwanted shakes.

It's not waterproof like most action cameras, but it's still small enough to take places you normally wouldn't bring a larger camera. 

The DJI Osmo is $650, and the company offers many accessories like tripods and mounts as well.
