DJI OM 4 takes your iPhoneography to the next level with a $ 129 magnetic mount (Reg. $ 149)
Amazon now offers the DJI OM 4 Smartphone Gimbal for $ 129 shipped. Down from the regular price of $ 149, you’re looking at a savings of $ 20 while matching our previous September mention for the second best deal yet. Offering all the stabilizing chops the brand’s range of gimbals are known for, DJI OM 4 takes a more smartphone approach to help make shaky videos shot on an iPhone or Android handset a thing of the past. A redesigned magnetic phone holder takes center stage to lock your gear in place and there are also other notable features built in to take your videography to the next level, like DynamicZoom and ActiveTrack 3.0. We also came away with much of the same feeling during our practical test. Go below to find out more.
While not the new and improved OM 5, a more affordable way to access stabilization technology would be the OM 4 SE. This alternative from DJI offers a package very similar to the main offering, just without the included mounting ring that allows you to hang your smartphone directly on the gimbal instead of having to use a stand. Although if missing out on this is worth additional savings, the $ 119 the price tag will be even more convincing.
Although if your videography setup could use something a little more capable, this weekend we got our hands on the new Manfrotto MVG220. This affordable 3-axis gimbal goes from holding a smartphone to a full mirrorless or DSLR camera platform. You can get a better idea of its performance in our review here.
Features of the DJI OM 4 smartphone gimbal:
Designed to upgrade the already impressive Osmo Mobile 3, the DJI OM 4 smartphone gimbal packs a more powerful motor and more torque than its predecessor, with an even more compact frame that’s easier to balance and fold up. Thanks to its magnetic smartphone holder, fixing your smartphone is easier than ever.
