Osmo Mobile 3 is DJI’s first foldable gimbal and is the perfect way to create smooth cinematic footage on your smartphone. Here, we’ll show you how to get started with Osmo Mobile 3 in no time!
Unlike previous Osmo Mobile models, Osmo Mobile 3 now connects to your phone through DJI Mimo. By using Osmo Mobile 3 with the DJI Mimo app, users can take advantage of new features like Story mode, which allows you to easily shoot, edit, and share your everyday moments.
Your smartphone should be properly balanced on Osmo Mobile 3 to record smooth footage.
To balance Osmo Mobile 3, place your smartphone in the phone holder, making sure the DJI logo is facing forward with the phone camera on the left. Adjust your phone’s position until it stays still. If your smartphone falls to one side, adjust its position until it remains level.
For a step-by-step guide on how to balance Osmo Mobile 3, check out our handy tutorial below.
Before using Osmo Mobile 3 for the first time, you will have to activate the device. To do so, open the DJI Mimo app and tap the camera icon in the top left corner of the screen. Search for your Osmo Mobile 3’s Bluetooth, and tap connect. Enter your DJI account name, and follow the on-screen instructions to finish activation.
Press the M button three times to enter Standby mode. In Standby mode, the LED indicator will flash yellow or green, and you will be able to use your smartphone while the gimbal is folded. This mode saves you from having to remove your smartphone or rebalance the gimbal before every use.
The M button on Osmo Mobile 3 has multiple functions. As well as being the power button, the M button can be used to customize modes depending on your specific needs. By default, it allows users to switch easily between taking photos and recording videos. However, it can also be used to bring up the Quick Menu, allowing you to change functions without having to touch your phone screen.
You can also double-tap the M button to switch between portrait and landscape orientation.
Story mode uses preset creative templates and to help users create short cinematic sequences with minimal effort. To create a video with Story mode, select a template, then shoot each clip individually. DJI Mimo will then automatically place the shots together with creative transitions and music to create a unique video.
