Digital Camera World Verdict

The DJI OM4 improves upon the best-selling Osmo Mobile 3 smartphone gimbal in meaningful ways. Its new magnetic mounting system delivers exceptional convenience, and the improved motor copes with heat much better than its predecessor, while also delivering noticeably extended range. That being said, the stabilization is comparable across both, and the OM4 is pricier. Is the cost of convenience and incremental upgrades worth it? One thing’s for sure, the O4 delivers class-leading size-to-performance for a smartphone gimbal.

Is the DJI OM4 the best gimbal for your smartphone? We had a chance of trying one out for a couple of weeks ahead of the launch, and this is our full field review…

DJI could be the biggest name in gimbals and drones right now, and while enthusiasts are all over the brand's high quality, generally well-priced prosumer tech, its mainstream attraction is its smartphone gimbal line, the Osmo Mobile series. After last year’s Osmo Mobile 3 reduced the footprint for a smartphone gimbal by adding a handy, folding design to the mix, it was anyone’s guess how DJI was going to better it. Guess no more - this is the magnetic DJI OM4.
