This is the more affordable version of the DJI Osmo, which was basically the same system but with a camera mounted on top.
The thing about the original Osmo is that it needed a smartphone anyway to view what the camera could see, so dropping the camera and making the mobile the main camera and control screen is a smart move.
This also means the this should have a long life as you can upgrade the camera every time you get a new phone.
In the box you get the Osmo Mobile, quick start instructions, charging cable, battery and wrist strap.
It feels lovely in the hand, it oozes quality and looks brilliant. To charge it you'll needed to use the included aux to USB cable. There is an aux port on the Osmo, this isn't for headphones or microphones, it's for the charging cable.
On top is the mobile holder, before powering up you'll need to balance your phone in the holder (a very simple process), then power up the Osmo and be amazed!
The Osmo talks to the mobile via Bluetooth and the companion app. When you first connect the app checks if a software update is required and for some reason this couldn't be completed when using a OnePlus 3T but was find when a Samsung A3.
There are controls on the Osmo to start/stop recording, take a photo, switch between front/rear camera and control where the mobile points.
The app has the ability to control the Osmo, either via a motion timelapse or via object tracking.
There are two time lapse options, fixed or motion. You get a lot of control over how long the time lapse lasts and in the motion time lapse you tell the Osmo where you want it to start and finish.
Object tracking is really useful if you fix Osmo to a tripod and have it tracking you while you're talking to camera. It's like having your own camera operator track you as you move around the room.
Generally the tracking works well and copes with fairly quick movement, but it can't track things moving really quick as they tend to leave the cameras view quicker than the camera can be moved. As you'll see in the video sometimes you need to manually adjust the gimbal position to get it up and running again, but once it sees the object your tracking back on screen it locks on and resumes tracking.
Of course these are all lovely extras, what the Osmo is really designed to do is give your smartphone videos some badly needed stabilization, and it does this brilliantly.
Walking or running the footage you get is silky smooth and looks really professional. Compare the footage to standard camera footage (the Canon G7X was used in the video) and you see just how good the stabilization is.
There have been a few occasions when Osmo Mobile and the app didn't want to talk to each other at first, the classic 'turn off and on again' method sorted this out.
The DJI Osmo Mobile is an impressive bit of kit for those who want lovely smooth footage while out and about.
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!
Post purchase support is also very bad. You can never ever reach actual human being. This is DJI's least priority
and cheapest product, So they care very less about it.

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.
Followed all the instructions and it will just not energize, Looked up youtube videos , looked on the DJI forum and nothing has worked.
The metal and finish build quality is fantastic but the electronic side looks to be total rubbish, i have ordered a replacement unit from amazon so it might of just been bad luck with this one, i'm willing to give it another try and will update my review and score when i receive the replacement. fingers crossed.
