The DJI officially debuted its new mobile stabilizer, the DJI OM 5. Among the most significant improvements are an integrated 215mm extendable arm, ShotGuides function, and ActiveTrack 4.0 lens track. All of this is accompanied by reduced weight and smaller size. Let’s take a deeper look at it.
Improved stabilization and tracking
The DJI OM 5 also has the same magnetic design as the DJI OM 4, which firmly attaches the phone to the gimbal and prevents it from falling.
It also gets the gesture control and other recording modes from the DJI OM 4 (including Story Mode), but it adds the new ShotGuides feature, which detects the environment and offers a suggestion for a filming sequence and template, as well as short films with recommendations on how to perform certain tasks.
The company also claims that the DJI OM 5 has improved three-axis stabilization technology and that the ActiveTrack 4.0 tracking algorithm has been enhanced, allowing for continuous tracking even if the lens reverses or is blocked by other objects.
The DJI OM 5 also includes a mobile stabilizer for the first time, with an integrated 215mm extendable arm that allows you to expand shots for group selfies and shoot at more creative angles easily. Despite this arm, the new gimbal is lighter and smaller than its predecessor: it weighs 290 g (previous one is 390 g).
DJI OM 5: Price and availability
The DJI OM 5 gimbal is available in Athens Gray and in a new Sunset White shade. You can already find it on the official DJI website at an official price of 159 US dolar.
