Compatible with DJI’s free Mimo app (that also works with the Osmo Pocket and Osmo Action cameras), the gimbal is designed to be operated with one hand, enabling selfie footage to be filmed and images to be captured easily. In fact, photographers can use the Gesture Control technology to snap a selfie by simply flashing the ‘peace’ sign.

The Osmo Mobile 3 features a trigger mechanism to adjust the gimbal by locking orientation, rotating the gimbal for selfies, and re-centering when tracking a subject. What’s more, the Quick Roll feature rotates the orientation of your smartphone from portrait to landscape with a double-press of the Mode (M) button and without the need to remove the device, saving time for users.

The Osmo Mobile is designed to be used one-handed.

Connecting to your smartphone via Bluetooth, the Osmo Mobile 3 uses the Mimo app to offer features such as Story Mode, to create videos using DJI selection of music, transitions and templates, along with the ActiveTrack 3.0 feature to lock on to subjects and follow them through the frame.

The Osmo Mobile 3 is suitable for Vloggers who don’t want to be weighed down by heavy kit.

The Osmo Mobile 3 will also help users capture Panorama images – with photographers able to choose from 3×3 or 180° panorama options – along with a Hyperlapse mode to create motion within a timelapse sequence.

Users can shoot panoramas and hyperlapse creations.

Available to buy now, the DJI Osmo Mobile 3 carries a price-tag of £99/€109/$119 and is eligible for DJI’s Care Refresh program.
