Each generation of OSMO Mobile has brought new changes and improvements to elevate the user experience and make filmmaking more fun. 

The DJI OSMO Mobile 3 first introduced the now-iconic folding design to the Osmo Mobile line-up, revolutionising the way you can create easily on-the-go with simple portrait-landscape swapping, setup and pack-down. 

The DJI OM4 brought magnets to the party and added support for bigger, bulkier phones by significantly improving motor strength. 

Now, the new DJI OM5 introduces an integrated extension rod, allowing you to capture incredible shots from angles never before possible. This feature is exclusive to the OM5 and not available on previous models. 

Both the OM4 and OM5 feature unique magnetic quick-release systems, however, the feature is not present on the OM3. The OM3 also lacks support for larger, heavier phones. 

Features and intelligent shooting modes included in the DJI Mimo app have also improved upon each OSMO Mobile iteration. OM5 now supports old favourites like Timelapse and SpinShot with improved ActiveTrack 4.0 and innovative ShotGuides. 

Which OM is for me?

As the most versatile model yet, the OM5 is best suited for most users, providing an easy-all-one solution that eliminates the need for a traditional selfie stick. 

The new ergonomic design and lighter overall gimbal weight make the OM5 more user-friendly than previous generations, however, it does not have as much battery life as previous iterations. 

If you love vlogging, want to create dynamic TikTok or Instagram Reel content, or just want to capture and share your unique perspective, OM5 is the smartphone gimbal for you. It offers the most creative features and with ShotGuides, operating the OM5 is easy, even if you’re a novice. 

If you plan on using your OSMO Mobile all day long, the OM4/SE is a good option with its long-lasting 2450mAh battery providing up to 15 hours of battery life. However, the larger battery also means that the OM4/SE is heavier and slightly less ergonomic. 

Is the OM5 worth the upgrade?

If you currently own an older OSMO Mobile model and are looking to upgrade, now’s the perfect time! At an RRP of $239, the OM5 is available for the same price as the original RRP of the OM4 with tonnes of extra features.
