DJI Osmo Mobile 6, DJI’s latest smartphone stabilizer released

DJI aims to push your creativity further with its latest smartphone stabilizer, the DJI Osmo Mobile 6, which now features a new Quick Launch and Enhanced ActiveTrack.

Osmo Mobile 6, which is palm-sized and portable, was released today by DJI. It is designed to maximize the photographic and video recording capabilities of any smartphone.

The Osmo Mobile 6 smartphone stabilizer has been upgraded via device functionalities, software features, and editing tools to provide users creative control over their phone cameras. Osmo Mobile 6 incorporates DJI’s 3-axis stabilization, a new Quick Launch, and ActiveTrack 5.0.

“Whether you’re outdoors camping with family or at home with a group of friends, everyone wants to explore their creativity and capture the moment in a unique way,” said Paul Pan, Senior Product Line Manager at DJI. “A stabilizer is the perfect companion to push the limitations of any smartphone camera and the Osmo Mobile 6 is the best we’ve ever made.”

DJI Osmo Mobile 6 lighter and more versatile

Osmo Mobile 6 builds on the success of OM 5 with a more ergonomic grip and bigger clamp. It’s pocketable and weighs 300g. The Osmo Mobile 6 has a built-in extension rod for better selfies and low-angle pictures.

Three strong motors and DJI’s sophisticated algorithms stabilize smartphone photographs and videos. Osmo Mobile 6’s active stabilization makes it ideal for recording activities, whether traveling, exploring, or witnessing a child’s first sports event. Smartphones’ electronic picture stabilization might fail during dynamic movement and poor illumination, but Osmo Mobile 6’s motorized stabilization makes the difference every time. 

Osmo Mobile 6 has a Quick Launch function for iPhone users to record ephemeral moments. Attaching an iPhone to the stabilizer prompts the Mimo app alert to access the camera view. The device prepares three times faster than prior generations.

Osmo Mobile 6’s ActiveTrack 5.0 enables more steady tracking at greater distances and can track subjects that pivot or spin. During camping, touring, or street shooting, the gimbal keeps the subject in focus.

Four modes

With a new built-in status panel and Mode button, checking the battery level and switching between the four gimbal modes is as easy as 1, 2, 3, 4. A quick tap on the M button and you can cycle between:

Follow: In Follow mode, the camera view follows the gimbal’s pan and tilt movements and stays level during rolls. This mode is suitable for shooting up, down, and diagonally.

Tilt Lock: The camera view only follows the gimbal’s pan movement and stays stable during tilts and rolls — 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 filming of still subjects like landmarks, buildings, or statues.

SpinShot: Push the joystick to the left or right to control the rotation of the camera view and create dynamic footage. It’s perfect for shooting push, pull, and high-angle shots.
