Just at a time when phones like the iPhone 14 implement action modes with extra stability, DJI has introduced the DJI Osmo Mobile 6a new gimbal for mobile phones that, like its predecessors, seeks to be the tool of choice for those content creators who want to generate extremely stable footage.
One of the main changes of this model is a new handle designed to be more ergonomic. Also features a clamp that accommodates larger phones –and even with cover–. The brand also highlights that the product weighs just over 300 grams and can even be carried in a pocket.
The Chinese company also emphasizes in his communication on the difference between a gimbal like this and the electronic stabilization systems present in phones. The key, according to them, is that this system can fail or impair image quality in situations with low light or sudden movements. Instead, using the Osmo Mobile 6 you can record video with the highest quality that the phone allows and, at the same time, achieve excellent stabilization.
What the brand says is actually 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 has a lot of light. If the Osmo Mobile 6 is combined with the same iPhone 14 Pro, instead, can be recorded at maximum quality and even in ProRes and, at the same time, achieve superior stabilization thanks to the DJI product.
the chinese brand has implemented in this new version a quick mode for iPhone users. It 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 allows automated tracking of items even with the front camera. “Whether camping, traveling, or shooting on the street, videos have the semblance of history, as the stabilizer automatically keeps the lens in the spotlight,” the brand said in a statement.
The DJI Osmo Mobile 6 also has a built-in status dashboard, as well as with a Mode button that allows you to easily check the battery level or toggle between the different modes of operation: follow, fixed tilt, FPV or spinshot. The gimbal It also has a wheel that allows you to adjust the focal length of the phone’s camera in a simple and practical way.
