DJI has come out with the latest expansion of its popular Osmo line of smartphone gimbals. The new Osmo Mobile 6 aims to take your iPhone camera to the next level with advanced stabilization, a new quick start feature, and more. It is available to order today and the price starts at $ 159.
DJI Osmo Mobile 6 for iPhone
One of the main features of the new Osmo Mobile 6 is a new quick start function. This feature is exclusive to iPhone users and automatically triggers a push notification when you connect your iPhone to the stabilizer. From this push notification, you can instantly switch to the DJI Mimo companion app with a single tap.
In addition to this new quick start feature, DJI Osmo Mobile 6 also includes a new integrated status panel and a dedicated Mode button. These allow you to check the battery level and quickly switch between four shooting modes in the Mimo app:
- To follow: In Follow mode, the camera view follows the pan and tilt movements of the gimbal and stays level throughout the reels. This mode is suitable for up, down and diagonal shots.
- Tilt lock: The camera view follows only the pan movement of the gimbal and remains stable during tilts and rotations, ideal for shooting horizontally or moving around a subject.
- FPV: In FPV mode, all three axes of the gimbal follow the movement of the handle. This is wonderful for dynamic shooting of stationary subjects such as landmarks, buildings or statues.
- shot in rotation: Push the joystick left or right to control camera view rotation and create dynamic movies. It is perfect for push, pull and overhead shooting.
There’s a new scroll wheel, which DJI says lets you adjust the focal length for flexible composition and zoom in and out. You can also create a “cinematic look by pressing the side wheel to switch to manual focus control”.
Like previous generations of the Osmo Mobile gimbal, there are also some built-in intelligence features:
- Time frame: Edit time and space with Timelapse, Motionlapse and Hyperlapse. With these three simple templates, good times can be merged into awesome clips.
- Dynamic Zoom: Use Close and Exit modes to stretch and compress visual effects, creating hit movies with just your phone.
- Gesture control: Taking a photo or starting a video has never been so convenient. Simple gestures make it easy to take a selfie or group photo.
- Panorama: Three different panorama modes are available – 3 × 3, 240 ° and CloneMe – to capture stunning landscapes or unique compositions.
- Story mode: Various templates help combine camera shake, transitions, soundtracks and more to allow users to share eye-catching videos with just a tap or you can create a custom template.
Finally, DJI is advertising a new version of its ActiveTrack feature, dubbed ActiveTrack 5.0. This encompasses “more stable tracking at greater distances” and “allows the front-facing camera to track subjects as they turn sideways or rotate.”
The DJI Osmo Mobile 6 can be ordered today from the DJI website for $ 159. The package includes a magnetic clamp, tripod, power cord, and carrying case.
Take by 9to5Mac
One particularly interesting thing this year is that the new iPhone 14 offers an integrated action mode for the first time. This feature, according to Apple, is intended to correct unwanted vibrations, vibrations, and motions when capturing videos. Initial tests show that it’s a pretty impressive feature.
Based on previous generations of the Osmo Mobile gimble, it will likely provide better stabilization than Action mode. One thing I’m curious to see, however, is how Action Mode and Osmo Mobile 6 could work together.
On the other hand, I would also bet that the addition of the action mode built into the iPhone 14 might be enough for many people who may have previously opted for dedicated hardware like the DJI Osmo Mobile 6.
We will have more coverage of the DJI Osmo Mobile 6 in the coming weeks and we are sure to put it head to head with the action mode of the iPhone 14.
