At a time when phones like the iPhone 14 are implementing modes of action with greater stability, DJI introduces the DJI Osmo Mobile 6 a new gimbal for mobile phones that, like its predecessors, aims to become the tool of choice for content creators who want to generate extremely stable images.
One of the main changes of this model is a new handle designed to be more ergonomic. Also features a clip that fits larger phones and even with a case. The brand also highlights that the product weighs just over 300 grams and can even be carried in your pocket.
The Chinese company has also highlights in its press release the difference between a gimbal like this and the electronic stabilization systems found in phones. The key, they say, is that this system can fail or degrade image quality in low-light situations or during sudden movements. On the other hand, using the Osmo Mobile 6 allows you to shoot video at the highest quality your phone allows, while also getting excellent stabilization.
What the brand says is really true. The action mode of the iPhone 14 Pro, for example, produces very good results, but it limits the resolution to 2.8K (instead of 4K) and also requires that the scene be well lit. If you combine the Osmo Mobile 6 with the same iPhone 14 Pro, instead, you can record in full quality and even in ProRes and, at the same time, achieve superior stabilization thanks to the DJI product.
chinese brand has implemented a quick mode for iPhone users in this new version. This triggers an alert with the DJI Mimo app as soon as the phone is connected to the gimbal and quickly activates the camera view, reducing the time until the gimbal is fully operational.
the new model it also comes with the ActiveTrack 5.0 system.which enables automated item tracking, even with the front camera. “When you’re camping, traveling, or shooting on the street, videos feel like a story because the stabilizer automatically keeps the lens in focus,” explains the brand in the press release.
The DJI Osmo Mobile 6 is also has a built-in status panel as well as a mode button that allows you to easily check the battery level or switch between operating modes: Follow, Fixed Pitch, FPV or Spinshot. The gimbal site also has a dial that allows you to adjust the focal length of your phone camera in an easy and convenient way.
