DJI OM 4 makes the best pocket smartphone gimbal even better

DJI already makes what is arguably the best smartphone gimbal on the market with the Osmo Mobile 3. It captures stable video, makes it easy to operate, and even folds into a bundle that can fit in a side bag on a backpack. DJI OM 4 takes everything in this gimbal and makes it even better. The fourth generation of the smartphone gimbal, inherited from its predecessor, has inherited many wonderful things. From the foldable form factor and stunning physical controls to mechanical stabilization and pre-programmed shooting modes, everything people loved about the Osmo Mobile has been repeated in this rebranded successor, with some significant improvements that make it better overall.
The DJI OM 4 replaces the old clip-on mount with a magnetic gimbal-based phone system, which the company claims will make attaching and detaching the phone much faster than before. The package includes two options: a phone clip with a magnet on the back and a round magnet with an adhesive surface that can be glued to the back of your phone. Whichever option you choose, the magnet on the back makes it easy to slide in and out of the gimbal, allowing you to switch between handheld and gimbal footage without the setup time that was previously required. Obviously, the presence of magnets on the back of the phone also opens up a whole host of new mounting options, provided you can find ferromagnetic surfaces wherever you shoot. It has the same triaxial stabilization as its predecessor, so the gimbal can respond to your physical movements and perform real-time compensation at 120 degrees per second, allowing you to capture smooth, shake-free footage no matter how much you move. with a new sensor that can detect when you are shooting at a low angle, allowing it to position the gimbal accordingly. However, for this iteration, they used a new engine that is stronger than the last generation, allowing it to work with heavier smartphones. Heck, DJI claims, it can support even large smartphones with an external lens mounted on them, so this gimbal should remain functional even when the day comes when smartphones are even bigger than they are now.
As before, DJI OM 4 lets you control the gimbal with a joystick, while integrating with most smartphone cameras, so you can turn on and off recording using physical controls instead of reaching for the screen. One of the things that really made DJI gimbals special was the integration of software originally built for crew drones that automates a lot of filming tasks. For example, there is ActiveTrack 3.0, which allows you to determine the subject that the gimbal will then automatically follow, as well as creative zoomed shots, time-lapse shots, rotary shots, slow motion shots, and beginner-friendly one-touch creative templates that make shooting quality shots. frames are even simpler. It has a built-in battery designed to last up to 15 hours on a single charge.
DJI OM 4 is already available for $ 149.
