What is the DJI OM5?

Released in late 2021, the DJI OM5 is the latest addition to DJI’s beloved Osmo Mobile smartphone stabiliser product line. Essentially, the DJI OM5 is a smartphone stabiliser that crosses with a selfie stick and a tripod. It enables you to capture more dynamic movement with enhanced smoothness and swiftness.

Using the DJI OM5 for Social Media Content Creation

Ideal for versatile shooting scenarios and on-the-go recording, the DJI OM5 is perfectly suited for social media content creation with a whole host of handy features that make capturing content a breeze. Let’s dive in and break them down.


For those who have no videography or content production experience whatsoever, the DJI OM5 can do the work for you with their awesome ShotGuides feature which provides templates and videography tips to shoot a variety of short clips. It features an automatic environment recogniser which assists creators with ways to improve their shots while being incredibly user-friendly allowing easy compilation of selected videos for you to instantly share online.

Intelligent Shooting Modes  

In addition, the OM5 also has Intelligent Shooting Modes which lets you capture different styles of content. There are 8 different Shooting Modes but I will focus on the few that in my opinion will revolutionise your Tiktok or reel.

ActiveTrack 4.0

Starting off with ActiveTrack 4.0 this mode tracks your subject and keeps them in focus and in frame so you don’t have to worry about being out-of-focus when recording hilarious meme-worthy moments.

Timelapse / Hyperlapse

Timelapse and hyperlapse allows you to record the passage of time while capturing the dynamic movement of the environment around you. There are so many creative ways you can use these two modes but I would think creating content in public spaces would look super epic.

Hands-Free Operation  

Another way you can utilise the OM5 is by not even touching it! The gimbal has a tripod base which lets you record stationary content completely hands-free. This is a great way to record demonstrational tutorials ranging from learning clips illustrating how to do make-up, cook build… the list goes on to more entertaining videos of yourself or others hopping on a dance trend or a skit trend. Folding up the tripod base lengthens your gimbal and extending the neck transforms it into a selfie stick for you to vlog or take selfies.

Perfect Your Transitions  

Now let’s talk about transitioning. If you want to create super-smooth continuous videos, you'll want to learn all about transitioning. No one wants to watch poorly cut videos nor do you want to be basic and have mediocre content. Transitioning well will help you stand out from the millions of other content producers on social media.

There are various movement shots embedded in DJI Mimo app that offer various ways to make eye-catching shots. One of which is the spinshot which allows you to record in continuous rotation simply with the push of a button. That means you don’t ever have to awkwardly twist your arm for a sick clip again! The stabilisation function of the OM5 is amazing for preventing shaky recordings, so together with the auto align function and a little bit of editing you can create seamless transitions from one clip to another like a pro.

There is almost no excuse to not be able to produce amazing clips using the OM5… only kidding, but the OM 5 definitely makes recording so much more effortless and exciting. Together with the preset modes and functionalities of the OM5 and a bit of creative inspiration, the skys the limit for your clip to go viral.
