DJI’s revamped Osmo Mobile 3 brings that buttery smooth video to your phone. As the name suggests, the Osmo Mobile 3 is DJI’s third take on this gimbal and it’s very much an iteration on the previous model, fixing most of the pain points while adding some nice new features to the software.
While DJI is not the first phone gimbal with a folding design, it’s perhaps the simplest used. Unlike some gimbals with lots of twists and latches, this is one piece. Extend it and you’re ready to go. Fold it up—even with your device still attached—and it’s ready to pack away.
The foldable design also makes the Osmo Mobile incredibly easy to carry around. The handy carrying case fits easily in a bag. The gimbal itself weighs just over 14 ounces and fits any phone between 2.5 and 3.5 inches wide (62–88 millimeters).
Mounting your phone is simple. There are no screws—just a spring-loaded tension grip. It feels plenty secure and can fit larger phones than the previous model, be careful because thick cases might be an issue. DJI says the new mount design decreases the chances of the mount pressing your phone’s hardware buttons since it has a lighter grip and holds onto a smaller area of your phone’s edge.
The design gives you easy access to your phone’s charging port and headphone jack (if it has one, that is). You could add an external microphone to your setup for improved sound quality, something vloggers will be happy to hear.
The front handle trigger mechanism is also back on the Osmo Mobile 3—a feature that the first-generation Osmo Mobile had and the Mobile 2 dropped. The trigger now lets you lock the gimbal, re-center, track, activate “sport” mode (more on that in a minute), and switch between front and back cameras.
