DJI Osmo Mobile brings 3-axis gimbal stabilization to smartphones
DJI has introduced the Osmo Mobile, a variation of its previously launched Osmo that is, in this case, designed for smartphones. With Osmo Mobile, users can insert a smartphone into the mount and record smooth, stabilized footage with the handset thanks to the SmoothTrack technology and 3-axis gimbal stabilization. The stabilizer works with the DJI GO App for livestreaming videos, sharing content, and tracking moving objects via DJI’s ActiveTrack.
The Osmo Mobile’s 3-axis stabilization claims accuracy down to 0.03 degrees, while the SmoothTrack tech works to reduce small movements and shaking. Trigger control enables switching between the handset’s front and rear camera, as well as re-centering and locking the gimbal direction. Standard, Portrait, Flashlight, and Underslung operation modes are available.
The DJI GO App offers, in addition to ActiveTrack, functions including access to camera settings, Panorama, Long Exposure, Live Stream, and Motion Time Lapse. Other Osmo features include Bluetooth, a 3.5mm charging/upgrade port, and compatibility with Osmo accessories. DJI says Osmo Mobile ‘should’ support any smartphone between 2.31 and 3.34 inches wide; this includes the most recent high-end smartphones, including the Galaxy S7, iPhone 5/6/6s Plus, and the Huawei Mate 8.
The Osmo Mobile is available as of today for $299.
