The OSMO Mobile for me is a really great tool for event coverage and B-Roll footage. It's small, portable, relatively light-weight, and convenient. It provides me a relatively inconspicuous way to get very stable looking footage without the bulk and attention that a DSLR stabilisation system has. And for the money, comparing the OSMO Mobile to competing solutions like the IKAN Fly X3 Plus, there's really no denying that the OSMO is more feature rich. The controls at your thumb and the features provided with the DJI go app are huge pluses... but they all come with a few distinct downsides...
First major downside- if you're on Android you're currently unable to take advantage of most of the professional features in the DJI Go app for OSMO. You have no controls over ISO, White Balance, Exposure, etc... I'd recommend either going with the Filmic Pro app which is $10 and has been used in many major professional films shot using mobile devices, or the similar but more moderately priced Cinema FV-5 which you can usually find for around $5.
Second major downside- are you concerned with the audio quality straight from your phone? Personally I'll be using this as a convenience and back-up system for doing pre-visualisation shoots, for event coverage, and for B-roll, all of which don't require stellar audio. If you are, however, intending to use this as an all in one system for major shoots where you expect to use the audio directly from your mobile device in the final edit (with no secondary sound syncing), check where your phone has it's headphone jack located. Is the headphone jack at the top, or at the bottom by the charging port? I have an S7 Edge, and my headphone jack is at the bottom... which makes it usable and inaccessible because the phone slides in bottom first into the clamp on the OSMO. If I attempted to put my phone in backwards, the phone's camera would be aimed straight at the balancing arm of the OSMO. So keep in mind what mobile device you're using, if you're using one with a headphone jack on top you will have clear access to external audio devices, if not, you're stuck.
The third major downside- It's HARD to find a good case for the OSMO Mobile. The zipper bag that DJI includes with the system is a joke. The device just barely squeezes inside, and the soft fabric sides provide no support or protection for the device. The box the device comes in does an okay job at protecting the OSMO, as it comes with a hard foam interior specifically cut to fit your OSMO, but in order to balance the device for your phone you have to extend one of the support arms and tighten it down... which makes the OSMO no longer fit in the original box. You could loosen the screw, put the OSMO away unbalanced in its box, and re-balance every single day, but a cardboard box with no straps is still not an ideal solution. I ended up picking up a hardened foam case for around $35 which said it was designed for OSMO, and reviewers made it seem like it would fit the OSMO Mobile as well... it did not. The arms of the OSMO mobile fold outwards to be dramatically larger and longer than the original OSMO. The pre-cut foam inserts that came with the case did not fit. I ended up picking up some soft foam from my local craft storage, cutting it down, and lining the case with it. When zipped shut, the foam conforms to the OSMO, holding it in place, while cushioning it from mild impacts. It's not the best solution, but for the price was a good solution for me. Most of the cases you find aimed at DJI products tend to go into the $100+ range and are bulky, metal, reinforced things which are over engineered for a device that's meant to be all about portability and convenience.
And a fourth downside, which will only come up in extreme cases- the OSMO Mobile tends to "jolt" if you twist it too far to the right. Because the OSMO Mobile has a "portrait mode" built in as one of the ways you can hold the device, if you're testing how much it can stabilise rotation in a normal grip, the OSMO has a tendency to want to try and flip into portrait mode if you twist too close to the edges of it's range. In most situations you won't be requiring your OSMO to compensate for such a drastic amount of rotation, which is close to 25-35 degrees off axis, but it is something to consider if you're intending to use the device in high intensity situations, perhaps for sports coverage where you'll be expecting to move the OSMO rapidly and at unconventional angles.
All in all, great product, and a fantastic price for this specific bundle. My OSMO Mobile came with no issues whatsoever, the only problems I have are just specific to the product itself. If you're not concerned with any of the issues I listed, then this is definitely the bundle I would recommend.
I’ve used the original Osmo in the past and thought it was great. Got to borrow one and after a 2 weeks of use, I essentially stopped using it. I got tired/lazy on having to take video/photos to my desktop/laptop to share with friends and family. That step was just too cumbersome even though the quality was great.
Smartphones have created unprecedented convenience and combined with social media, convenience will often trump quality. Hence the large decline in point and shoot cameras for Canon and Nikon. I think Osmo mobile is a very smart move for the company. Whether you have Apple or Samsung, iPhone or Galaxy, small or large, the Osmo will accommodate them all.
I ordered via Amazon and it was shipped directly from Shenzhen, China via FedEx. Battery was mostly charged and it was topped off in an hour. Found the included paper material difficult to read since it was so small. Ended up downloading manual from DJI and read on my laptop.
Placing the phone in the mount is easy as its secured via a twist clamp. If you use a phone case as most do, the size of your case can impact the clamp. I have an Incipio case and the phone in the case didn’t fit well into the grooves. There is an auto balance feature that didn’t work with the case. Taking off the case and everything went well.
One needs to manually find the right balancing point for the phone. There are two places that one has to adjust — balance adjustment knob and where the phone sits in position in the clamp. I have an iPhone 6 and there was a gap of 3-4mm on the right side of the phone when in the clamp. Once the phone is level, turn it on and voila!
You need to download the DJI Go app and set up an account which will ask for access to your photos and microphone on the phone. The Osmo mobile connects to your phone via bluetooth. The sync via bluetooth is simple and uncomplicated. Turn on the Osmo mobile then launch the DJI Go app and your up and running.
The joystick allows you the pan left, right, up, and down. Photo button is larger than the video button so there’s good tactile feel. There's substantial lag between when the photo and video buttons are pressed before phone camera/video takes the picture/video. There’s a trigger on the opposite side which allows different functions:
hold trigger — stays in current position regardless of handle movement
2 tap — center’s phone
3 tap — switches to front camera for selfies
Stabilization is amazing! Active track allows you to track an object on screen as it moves. One may need to adjust framing of the subject using the joystick. Walking or running, the videos are smooth and clean. The battery of the iPhone got depleted rather quickly. The battery for the Osmo mobile has lasted over 3hrs; would be nice to have some sort of indicator. After about 30 minutes of use, it got heavy holding with one hand. Definitely recommend using the lanyard for security.
17.25oz with battery
22.30 oz with phone 6 and apple leather case
Action sequences where you are moving and panning is where this really shines! For parents, this gadget would be fantastic for when your child first begins their first steps, learns to ride their bike, singing birthday parties, and sports where you can be close to the action. Traveling would be another great use as there's nothing worse than choppy video.
What I liked:
⁃ Awesome stabilization
⁃ Decent battery life on Osmo
⁃ Easy to share quality images/video
Things to consider:
⁃ Heavy after prolonged use
⁃ iPhone battery depletes quickly
⁃ Phones with larger case may have issues
- lag between pressing buttons (photo/video) and actual taking or picture/starting recording
Will continue to use and update as I learn new things. Thanks!

This is a first impression report and that impression is almost totally positive. The Osmo was delivered the day before the London New Year parade and the two hours of raw video I shot looks like it came from a tripod or an expensive crane system. The OSMO was used on a telescopic pole which gave me a great choice of angles and I could raise, lower and angle the pole while still retaining great framing and a totally level shot. Being able to hold the camera in a grip that allowed me to stop and start the video also avoided the almost compulsory finger in shot feature that you get from shooting with a hand held phone. I have tested the Osmo with an iPhone 7 Plus and an iPhone X. Both worked well, the only snag being that to swap from one to the other (necessary when battery ran low) required rebalancing the Osmo again. It takes little time but when one camera is running out of battery power and the action is ongoing every second counts. Another problem that affects all phones with sockets on the centre of the base is that it makes adding a better mic impossible. An old iPhone with an offset mic/earpiece socket would be better here. I have Googled solutions and realistically there isn't one and you are stuck with whatever audio the phone produces.
Most of the shooting was with the DJI GO app which links the Osmo with the phone by Bluetooth and provides most of the required camera controls. This app has some nice options, the best being Activetrack. Just slide your finger over a feature on the screen and the Oslo will keep it in shot. A couple of snags with DJI GO that I have found is that it stores its video within the app so to transfer it to a iMac for editing means first copying all the video to the iPhone's Photos app. Stupidly time consuming. The second problem I have found is that the choice of video types is limited. No 25 frames per inch UK standard for example, although the iPhone camera app won't offer this either. A browse around the app store found FILMIC Pro which answers both issues and allows a choice of frame rates plus 4k shooting on my iPhone X. Online checks say it works with active track but so far I cannot find out how.
Incidentally, if you are one of those phone users that insists on shooting in portrait mode the Osmo allows it. I wish it didn't though as a much better solution is JUST TURN THE CAMERA ROUND. One of the best updates that Apple could make to its software is block video recording unless the camera was turned to landscape.
Overall I am am very impressed with the Osmo. It's something else to carry so will not solve those spur of the moment recordings that phones are so good for but it's less hassle than carrying a video camera and results in some superb recordings. On final whinge and that is the name. Every time I type OSMO my computer assumes a spelling error and changes it to OSLO so if you see Oslo typed in this report it's a a spelling correction I missed.
Like all the latest tech, sometimes you have to search for solutions to issue's, if you are not willing to do so then at times you may be disappointing. If you are unfortunate enough to own an iphone, get FilMic Pro, it will solve all your woes of video issues and is worth the £9.99 or so that it costs.
The 'XCSOURCE Universal Frame Mount Pro Extra Holder Accessory Part for DJI OSMO Handheld 4K Gimbal Camera RC444' is a must buy for motion time lapse to fix the Osmo to a 3 way tripod head.
I had originally ordered the £99 (now £115) Chinese Zhiyun Smooth-Q 3-Axis gimble. When it arrived it had obviously been used before and the software really wasn't much good, so back it went.
The Osmo on the other hand was well packaged, slightly heavier, which actually helps when fiming.
The software was comprehensive and intuative.
The only downside was I found it quite difficult to set the balance on my Samsung Galaxy Note 4
Makes my 4k vids look stunning and at the sale price of £129, a bargain!.....no regrets.
1. You will never manage to get it on level as simply in the street you don't know where to put it on. Nothing is straight not flat in the street;
2. For the way it is designed, you will struggle to carry it around without risking to damage it;
3. It doesn't bare the wind, so forget about using it outside a car window or similar situations.
4. The joystick is useless. The true force of these toys is when you can operate by moving around. It does this but it's very slow responding on the pans.
5. If you mount it on the stick, you won't be able to use it unless you have 3 hands.
There are much better products out there. DJI is only a good brand on the professional end. Hopeless on the cheap consumer products lilke this instead.
