DJI has today launched a new Osmo Mobile – the OM5 – to their popular series of phone gimbal stabilizers. Like its predecessors, the grips virtually any phone into a 3-axis gimbal mounted arm which can then be operated via the handle. Atop the powered gimbal, the new OM5 includes a 215mm-extension rod (or selfie stick) which DJI suggest will contribute to making the OM5 easier for new users.

Paul Pan, the Product Line Manager, said “With the iterations of the DJI OM smartphone stabilizers over the years, we have been aiming to lower the threshold of professional and high-quality shooting by offering users more accessible and helpful tools for their everyday activities.”
