Steady your camera hand, use a speaker that floats and go camping in style
A three-axis rotation lets the Osmo deliver stabilised filming in unstable circumstances.
DJI Osmo+ Camera
It may not look like what we expect of a camera, but then it’s not the camera part that make the Osmo+ and the rest of its family different. The camera is attached to a hand-held gimbal, whose three-axis rotation lets the Osmo deliver stabilised filming in unstable circumstances. So the integrated 7x zoom camera stays flat, despite say, walking, running, cycling or driving. The camera isn’t too shabby either with a 22mm to 77mm zoom, 4K video and 12MP stills. There’s an option to view filming on a smartphone and it’s compatible with a range of accessories to express your inner Scorsese.

Mini Countryman AirTop Tent
Despite its name, the Mini Countryman has never quite evoked the spirit of the great outdoors. Now its four-wheel drive model can get all adventurous with a roof-mounted tent optional extra. Designed by Autohume, the AirTop looks like a flatish roof box when travelling, but pops-up to make a two-person tent. There’s a ladder to get to your room, a pair of windows and built-in LED light. It’s cosy, with a tasty price tag.
