Machining an Adapter for DJI’s Rosette Mount

I quite like DJI’s Osmo Gimbal. It was my preferred tool on my #CaliforniaRoadtrip2017 for capturing footage. Not even the worst roads could faze its rock solid stabilization capabilities.

But for all its utility, it had one annoying shortcoming. It was incompatible with 99.6% of all camera mounting accessories. You see, DJI uses an unusual rosette mount for its accessories, not unlike Arri. The mount, while very secure, is a pain in the ass for anyone not looking to invest in a closed ecosystem.

So since I had a CNC, I thought I’d make my own. The rest is legend.
