DJI Osmo Mobile 6 for iPhone
One of the main features in the new Osmo Mobile 6 is the new Quick Launch feature. This capability is exclusive to iPhone users and automatically triggers a push notification when your iPhone is connected to the installer. From this instant notification, you can instantly jump into the accompanying DJI Mimo app with a single tap.
Outside of the new Quick Launch feature, the DJI Osmo Mobile 6 also includes a new built-in status panel as well as a dedicated mode button. This allows you to check the battery level and quickly switch between each of the four shooting modes in the Mimo app:
- Follow: In follow mode, the camera view follows the tilt and tilt movements of the gimbal and remains flat during turns. This mode is suitable for shooting up, down and diagonally.
- tilt lock: The camera view only follows the movement of the gimbal pan and remains stable as you tilt and roll – perfect for shooting horizontally or moving around a subject.
- FPV: In FPV mode, all three axis of the axis track the movement of the handle. This is great for dynamic shooting of static subjects such as landmarks, buildings, or statues.
- SpinShot: Push the joystick left or right to control camera view rotation and create dynamic shots. It’s perfect for shooting push-pull and high-angle shots.
There’s a new sliding wheel, which DJI says allows you to adjust the focal length for flexible composition and zoom in and out. You can also create a “cinematic look with a tap of the scroll wheel to switch to manual focus control.”
Like previous generations of the Osmo Mobile gimbal, there are some intelligence features included as well:
- interval: Rotate time and space with Timelapse, Motionlapse, and Hyperlapse. With these three simple templates, beautiful moments can be combined into beautiful clips.
- DynamicZoom: Use the Move In and Move Out modes to stretch and compress visual effects, and create great shots using just your phone.
- Gesture control: Taking a photo or starting a video has never been so easy. Simple gestures make taking a selfie or group photo easy.
- panorama: Three different panoramic modes – 3 x 3, 240 degrees, and CloneMe – are available to help capture those breathtaking landscapes or unique compositions.
- Story mode: Various templates help to combine camera movements, transitions, soundtracks, and more for users to share engaging videos with one easy click, or a custom template can be created.
Finally, DJI is promoting a new version of its ActiveTrack feature, called ActiveTrack 5.0. This includes “more stable tracking at longer distances” and “allows the front camera to track targets that are turning to the side or spinning.”
The DJI Osmo Mobile 6 is available to order today from DJI for $159. Package includes magnetic clip, tripod mount, power cable and storage bag.
One thing that’s particularly interesting this year is that the new iPhone 14 introduces the built-in Work Mode feature for the first time. This feature, according to Apple, is intended to correct unintended jitters, shakes, and motion when capturing video. Early testing shows that it’s a pretty cool feature.
Based on previous generations of the Osmo Mobile gimble, it probably offers better stability than the motion mode. One thing I’m keen to see, though, is how Action Mode and Osmo Mobile 6 can work together.
On the flip side, I’d also bet that the addition of Action Mode built into the iPhone 14 could be enough for many people who might have previously opted for a dedicated piece of hardware like the DJI Osmo Mobile 6.
We’ll have more coverage of the DJI Osmo Mobile 6 over the coming weeks, and we’ll be sure to put it head to head with the iPhone 14’s action mode.
