DJI claims the Osmo Mobile will turn your smartphone into a smart motion camera, allowing for more cinematic videos from their 3-gimbal image stabilization technology. The new Osmo Mobile Silver shares the same build and ergonomic design found in the rest of the Osmo family, but with some enhancements to the DJI GO app. Users can now track their subject automatically, create motion timelapses, take dramatic long exposures, make 9-shot panoramas, and livestream their story to social media.
Further enhancements include a new Beautify mode that uses automatic identification and intelligent processing technologies inside the DJI GO app, allowing users to do minor touch ups. The Osmo Mobile Silver will also work with FiLMiC Pro, a filmmaking mobile app that gives creators more flexibility and creative freedom with their handheld device.
With the goal to make products scalable and to provide a way for existing Osmo customers to capture cinematic videos with their smartphones, the Zenmuse M1 gimbal will be made available as an add-on accessory. Similar to the Zenmuse X5 and X5R gimbals, the Zenmuse M1 allows owners of the original Osmo stabilizer to mount a smartphone and take full advantage of their existing Osmo handle.
DJI claims the battery in the Osmo Mobile Silver provides a maximum run time of 4.5 hours. The Osmo Mobile Silver is compatible with a range of smartphones, from 2.3 inches to 3.3 inches (58.6 mm – 84.8 mm) in width.
DJI’s Osmo Mobile Silver retails at $299 and the Zenmuse M1 gimbal is $169 (without the Osmo handle). Both products will start shipping in the second half of January.
