DJI’s Osmo Mobile 6 gimbal offers improved tracking and a new ‘Quick Launch’ feature

DJI has launched the Osmo Mobile 6 Gimbal, which comes with a larger clamp than its predecessors to accommodate larger phones or smaller ones with bulky cases. It’s got a new grip that’s more comfortable to hold, but it’s retained the Osmo Mobile 5’s built-in extension rod, which lets you use it as a selfie stick. The Osmo 6 also features an improved version of DJI’s ActiveTrack, which provides stable tracking over longer distances and allows the phone’s front camera to track subjects that are spinning or turning sideways.

Another new feature is Quick Launch for iPhone. As long as it’s an iPhone attached to the stabilizer, the Mimo app will immediately switch to the camera view when the gimbal is unfolded. DJI says it can drastically reduce prep times and get the phone ready to take photos three times faster than previous Osmo Mobile models.



The new gimbal features a built-in status panel that lets you quickly check battery levels, as well as a mode button that lets you switch modes with each tap. In Follow mode, the camera view remains locked during rolls, but follows the pan and tilt movements of the gimbal. Tilt Lock allows the camera view to follow gimbal pan movements but remains stable during tit and rolls. The camera view follows all movements of the gimbal in FPV mode for more dynamic footage, while SpinShot lets you control the camera view by moving the joystick left or right.

Just like its predecessor, the Osmo Mobile 6 also has a number of intelligent functions, namely time-lapse, gesture control, automatic dynamic zoom, panorama and story mode. Finally, the gimbal has a side wheel that allows you to control and adjust the focal length and zoom in or out. The DJI Osmo Mobile 6 is available today from the company’s online store for €169/£145 (US$166) and will make its way to more retailers in the future. It comes with a magnetic clamp, a tripod, a power cord, a wrist strap and a storage bag.
