OM6 Gimbal For Beginners

Need to upgrade your selfie stick to something with more purpose? You’ve come to the right place at just the right time with the new OM6 just being released by DJI.

What Is A Gimbal?

For the majority of us, photo taking and video capturing is mostly done by simply holding our phones out with our hands. Although this might be the easiest way to capture content, you might not realise it, but the majority of the time you will be compromising on quality and field of view. This is especially the case if you're using electronic stabilisation that often results in your videos being cropped.

Now for those who have never used anything to enhance their content capturing here's where you will learn how helpful having a gimbal can be. You might be wondering what even is a gimbal? Because for me at least I had no idea what it even meant until not long ago. Essentially, a gimbal is pivoted support that enables the rotation of your camera around an axis. It does this by balancing the weight of the camera so that there is super smooth horizontal and vertical movement no matter where you move the camera. We see many professional photographers and filmmakers use gimbals to capture content and achieve professional grade footage that is usually difficult to do by hand.

What Is The Best Gimbal For First-Time Users?

At this point in time the best model to get as a beginner is the DJI Osmo Mobile 6. As this is the latest model of the Osmo series, obviously, it would be the model with the most revisions to the functionality and design therefore the most advanced of the lot.

What Features Would Help First-Time Users?

The OM6 features a handful of improvements to the design to be more ergonomic for use. A revised anti-slip hand grip for increased comfort and addition of the side control wheel for fluid zoom and focus adjustments are two of the key advancements to this gimbal that stack onto the existing ergonomic design that already exists within this series. New to this series is also the built-in status panel that enables you to track power levels and switch modes with ease.

The DJI OM6 also features an even more advanced ActiveTrack 5.0 mode that follows the subject, at further distance, in the centre of the screen by default. As a new user this is a great feature to use to replace the manual need to physically turn and focus to capture your subject in frame.

Storytelling modes have also improved for easy-use filmmaking. ShotGuides have expanded to include more scenarios and recommendations for creative capturing and Story Mode has added to their editing tools to further guide new users how to achieve their desired outcome. Integration with the Mimo App is also simpler than ever with also more smartphone models being compatible with this gimbal, (check if your phone is compatible with the OM6 here) and newly introduced LightCut app is also compatible with the OM6 for even more simplified one-tap editing options.

Capture Content With Ease

If you think about it, the redesigned anti-slip hand grip along with the stabilisation mechanism and the activation of ActiveTrack 5.0 means that even if you gave the gimbal to a child to record content, your footage would turn out focused, aligned and unshaken. Which undoubtedly would not be the case if you were to give just them a phone on its own. The gimbal also crosses as a tripod and a selfie stick providing multipurpose functions for capturing professional grade content as a beginner. The gimbal itself does more than half the professional work for you so grabbing one should be a no brainer if you're looking to spice up your content.

What's Next?

It is not hard to master the use of the OM6 gimbal for content capturing. Once you move past the beginner level of understanding how to use the OM6 you can then optimise the functionality of the gimbal by accessorising with various other products.

Fit the DJI OM Fill Light Phone Clamp to your OM6 to have perfect lighting wherever you go or accessories with the DJI Mic to capture crisp quality audio no matter how disruptive the environment is. Together, the accessories along with your OM6 will help you achieve professional level content with ease.
