DJI OM4 Gimbal: The gold standard for smartphone gimbals [Video]
The DJI OM4 is the successor to the Osmo Mobile 3, and what I’d consider to be the gold standard for smartphone gimbals. With every generation, DJI refines their gimbals further, making it easier for daily use in all of the important areas: portability, durability, and functionality. The OM4 is no different, as it introduces some innovative features.
The OM4 is extremely portable, as it was designed to fold up and be thrown into a bag. While folding it up doesn’t exactly feel natural to execute, the way they’ve designed the mechanism is definitely something I appreciate. You can tell the OM4 isn’t going to loosen up and come apart, unlike other gimbals with folding mechanisms. And because of the materials used, it’s very light, so any worries of soreness from extended use should be an afterthought. It’s very comfortable to hold, and when using the gimbal, you generally feel like everything is in the right place.
