DJI users and not only I have a great news for you. DJI launched today it’s new Osmo Mobile 3 smartphone gimbal. Only one year passes since the relase of Osmo Mobile 2 which arrived with a very competitive price and a lot of functionalities. However, the 3rd generation comes with additional features and with a much more compact form factor.
With a much lower price compared to the previous generation, this makes this smartphone gimbal even more interesting.
The biggest difference compared to the previous generation is the design. DJI chose to reduce the dimensions significantly. The handle is shorter, the stabilizing arm is constructed differently which allows it to be folded. When you are not using the Osmo Mobile 3 you can easily fold it and transport it compared to 1st and 2nd generation.
Compared to the Osmo Mobile 2, the 3rd generation has an additional button in the back. This allows to quick change of stabilization modes. On the other hand the gimbal can now easily rotate your smartphone from portait mode to landscape with the simple push of a button. This action required more steps in previous generations.
The DJI Osmo Mobile 3 promises a 15 hour autonomy and fast charge up time. It is also compatible with USB Type-C for charging. One extra feature is the availability of a USB port in the back side of the Osmo Mobile 3. This allows you to charge your smartphone while filming.
While the Osmo Mobile and Osmo Mobile 2 used DJI Go app, the same app used to control our drones, the Mobile 3 is now using the DJI Mimo app which integrates some new functions like:
- Story Mode
- Active Track 3.0
