DJI has unveiled the latest version of its Osmo Mobile smartphone stabilizer, taking its experience with high-end gimbals like the Ronin series and using that experience to make the 3-axis smartphone gimbal smaller, more portable, more user-friendly, and cheaper. Last year, DJI released the second generation of their gimbal for smartphones - Osmo Mobile 2 - featuring longer battery life and new smart features. It's crowning feature? This new gimbal can actually fold! A trigger helps maneuver the gimbal by locking orientation, rotating the gimbal for selfies, and even re-centering when tracking a subject.

With this new oblique arm, it looks like you do get a lot more access to the ports at the bottom of your phone, but it's hard to say at this point whether it'll obstruct the movement of your gimbal. Quick Roll rotates the orientation from portrait to landscape by pressing the Mode (M) button twice without the need to remove the mobile device.

When locked down for travel, the Osmo Mobile 3 has dimensions of 157 x 130 x 46 mm (6.18 x 5.11 x 1.8 in), with DJI promising quick fold-out action to 285 x 125 x 103 mm (11.2 x 4.9 x 4 in) when a photo or movie moment presents itself to the smartphone user.

Now DJI releases the third generation - DJI Osmo Mobile 3. The ActiveTrack mode, activated by tapping the trigger once, will track the subject and keep them centered in the frame.

Story Mode: The app features a host of preset music, video transitions, and filters. Choose one of 13 fun templates and Mimo will handle the camera movement for you. Additionally, HyperLapse not only supports real-time Electronic Image Stabilization (EIS) but also ActiveTrack 3.0. After shooting, Mimo automatically generates your very own professionally edited short video, ready to be shared.

Gesture Control: Easily snap a selfie without pressing any buttons.

ActiveTrack 3.0: DJI's image recognition and deep learning algorithms allow Osmo Mobile 3 to recognize and follow selected subjects with a simple tap on the screen.

HyperLapse: Users can add movement by manually moving Osmo Mobile 3. Timelapse, panorama and slow motion modes are also available via the app.

Slow Motion: Slow down the world around you with 4X or 8X Slow Motion.

Osmo Mobile 3 is covered under the Osmo Shield service for an extra fee of $10. Do you now need a gimbal for your phone? It3 is available in two packages starting at $119 Dollars for the standard version which includes Osmo Mobile 3, a wrist strap, storage pouch and anti-slip pads.
