DJI Announces New OM 4 Smartphone Stabilizer

DJI Announces New OM 4 Smartphone Stabilizer

DJI has announced the latest update to its popular Osmo Mobile smartphone stabilizer. The OM 4 stabilizer features upgraded motors to better handle increased weight, an upgraded and less obtrusive magnetic phone mount, and more, all for little more than its predecessor.

The OM 4 is naturally DJI's best smartphone stabilizer yet. As our phones become ever larger, handling increased size and weight is more important than ever. Thanks to upgraded motors, the OM 4 brings added stability and support for today's latest large handsets. In addition, the new magnetic mount allows seamless connection between your smartphone and the OM 4. While this may be convenient for some, others may prefer a way to connect in a way that does not require an additional module to be stuck onto the back of the phone. Worry not, though, since the OM 4 still comes with a more traditional spring-loaded grip option as well. Rounding out the accessories in the package is a small, threaded tripod attachment to allow stabilized, static placement on the ground, a table, a car — whatever platform you can find.

Battery life is unchanged at a more than adequate 15 hours of time, which should be plenty to keep you from worrying about full shutdowns compared to simply putting the stabilizer into standby mode or working with the Mimo app to set up one of a number of useful automated shooting modes.

Combined with the Mimo app and the automated functions it allows, you can up your video game with very little effort with one of these stabilizers. With mobile cameras getting better every year, there are many cases in which the phone in your pocket shoots better video than the camera in your bag. Available today at $149, the OM 4 comes at a slight premium to the Osmo Mobile 3, but offers a new connection option and more powerful motors to continue the evolution of the best in three-axis smartphone stabilization.

Once again...not capable of holding a phone in an Otterbox...I get it you want people to use it without a case... but the beating my phone takes needs something protecting it...and a piece of metal attached where I charge the phone...A big no no....

Unless this is how you protect your phone, the adjustable mount should do fine with typical cases.

I have no idea where you get “a piece of metal attached where I charge the phone”. It’s completely wireless. The only metal thing that attaches to anything is the screw for the tripod feet that attaches to the handle. wtf lol

Watch this and edumucate ‘yo self:

They have two ways of connecting it....attaching a metal plate to the back of the iPhone or by the adjustable grip....Looking at that photo I can tell the adjustable grip will not grip a thick iPhone case...just like their previous versions.... the contour of the grip is optimized without a case
