DJI Launches DJI OM 5 Smartphone Gimbal

DJI launches the latest DJI OM 5 smartphone gimbal and it has a feature that sets other smartphone gimbals apart. Comparing to OM 4, the weight of OM 5 is lighter and it has upgraded its active tracking to Active Tracking 4.0.

Previously, DJI introduces smartphone gimbals as Osmo Mobile but recently, they have shortened it to just OM. The DJI OM 5 is currently available for purchase at USD160 on the DJI website in 2 colors (Athens Gray, Sunset White).

So, what sets this OM 5 from other smartphone gimbals. It has a built-in extension rod that, in my opinion, is super useful.

In the package, it comes together with a grip tripod. Here are the details in the package.

And as mentioned, it is even lighter than the previous model. Here is a comparison between DJI OM 5 and DJI OM 4 SE.

Check out the introductory video.
