DJI Osmo Mobile 4

Our Verdict

DJI Osmo Mobile 4 at first looks very similar to Osmo 3. The only new feature is the magnetic design.

If you’re looking for a new smartphone gimbal and willing to pay the premium for top quality results, the Osmo 4 is definitely worth considering. But, if you already own an Osmo 3, it may not be worth the upgrade.

Pros

  • Excellent stabilization
  • Great battery life
  • Excellent magnetic mount
  • Great App tricks

Cons

  • More Expensive than Osmo Mobile 3
  • May be hard to control at first

DJI OM 4 is the fourth generation of DJI smartphone gimbals. It comes with a sleek magnetic phone clamp and a magnetic ring holder.

DJI OM 4 is the ideal choice for those who need to shoot stabilized videos without investing in an expensive DSLR. The affordable gimbal allows anyone to try their hand at vlogging or creating their travel videos before deciding to invest time and money into more advanced systems.
