Everyone’s phone is a high-quality digital camera these days. DJI has today introduced a new product in the Osmo range to take mobile photography to new heights.
The Osmo Mobile 3 is a portable, foldable mobile phone stabilizer that’s the latest in a line of leading gimbals from DJI.
The Osmo 3 aims to be DJI’s most travel-friendly Osmo product to date. It’s lightweight, foldable and offers ultra-steady video footage alongside a number of pre-programmed features.
“When we began designing Osmo Mobile 3, we went back to the drawing board with the goal of creating a portable yet intuitive product that uses the latest DJI technology,” said Paul Pan, Senior Product Manager.
“We are excited to introduce DJI’s first gimbal with a folding design and hope it inspires our customers to imagine new ways of recording content with their mobile phones.”
The Osmo 3’s headline features are its ability to quickly unfold and use with a mounted mobile phone, its 15 hours of battery life, and its integration with DJI’s Mimo app.
The smartest selfie stick around?
On top of being foldable, the Osmo 3’s new design has a number of features to make it simple to control using just one hand.
There are buttons on the handle to control the gimbal’s movement and access different shot modes with a single touch.
–Story Mode: Bring creative editing to your video with a host of preset music, video transitions, and filters. Choose one of 13 fun templates and Mimo will handle the camera movement for you. After shooting, Mimo automatically generates your very own professionally edited short video, ready to be shared.
–Gesture Control: Easily snap a selfie without pressing any buttons. Once Gesture Control is enabled, show a “peace sign” or put up your palm and Osmo Mobile 3 will begin a photo timer countdown.
–Sport Mode: Similar to the useful feature from the DJI Ronin series, Sport mode increases the response speed of the device to keep up when shooting fast-moving scenes.
–ActiveTrack 3.0: DJI’s image recognition and deep learning algorithms allow Osmo Mobile 3 to recognize and follow subjects of your choice, perfect for capturing family moments easily with a tap.
–TimeLapse & MotionLapse: If you’re looking to turn minutes into seconds, Timelapse is perfect for capturing unique content with the effect of the world moving faster around you, while Motionlapse adds the dynamic element of movement to your Timelapse by setting points for the camera to move to.
–HyperLapse: Take the appealing visuals from Timelapse and add movement by manually moving Osmo Mobile 3 with you. Additionally, HyperLapse not only supports real-time Electronic Image Stabilization (EIS) but also ActiveTrack 3.0.
–Panorama: Get a wider perspective with panorama mode. Users can choose between 3×3 and 180° panorama modes.
–Slow Motion: Slow down the world around you with 4X or 8X Slow Motion.
