About this deal
The Action 3 on its handle to the left, next to the OM6 and phone on the right. (Image credit: Adam Juniper / Digital Camera World) On the right-hand side of the Mimo app (or at the bottom, depending on the smartphone's orientation), you'll find the photography and videography shooting modes. They are: DynamicZoom: simulates a dolly zoom effect. Tap the screen to select either the Move In or Move Out mode and drag a box to select your subject. You then walk towards or away from the subject to create a video clip.
On the flipside, I’d also wager that the addition of Action Mode built into the iPhone 14 could be enough for many people who might have previously opted for a dedicated piece of hardware like the DJI Osmo Mobile 6. Photo: capture still pictures. You can start at 0.5X for a wide angle and zoom in up to 8X. Holding down the button activates burst mode. ISO, shutter speed and EV values are displayed at the bottom of the screen. Just above is a scroll bar which you can use to zoom in and out from 0.5X to 8X. A three-dot icon on the bottom-left-hand corner of the screen opens up to a menu containing camera, gimbal and general settings. The left-hand side gives you instant access to shooting modes and Glamour settings.The Osmo Mobile 6 takes a maximum of 1 hour and 24 minutes to charge and can operate up to 6 hours and 24 minutes in ideal conditions.
Panorama: Three different panorama modes – 3×3, 240°, and CloneMe – are available to help capture those stunning landscapes or unique compositions.
What are the new DJI Mimo software features?
A status bar informs you when the device is connected and ready to go with a small indicator on the top left; green means it’s ready to use. Directly underneath it is the battery’s status. When the battery hits 20% or less, it will turn red. Directly to the right of both is an indicator showing which of the device’s four gimbal modes are activated. Insta360 Flow: The Insta360 Flow is the best gimbal if you want a very portable option. It is as large as a phone when folded! ZHIYUN Smooth X2: The Smooth X2 is not as capable as others, but it’s definitely one of the funnest gimbals and has a drop-dead price.
DJI’s folding phone gimbal seems to bring Ronin-grade shooting to anyone with a decent phone camera, and both takes advantage of all the possibilities of the tech – like motion timelapses – without missing any of the fun of vlogging. Follow: In Follow mode, the camera view follows the gimbal’s pan and tilt movements and stays level during rolls. This mode is suitable for shooting up, down, and diagonally.The ‘M’ button that turns the device on and off and can also be pressed to automatically switch between gimbal modes, or three times to enter standby mode. Underneath is a red ‘Record’ button that you press to start recording video, or take pictures if the device is in photo mode. Power: The battery inside the Osmo Mobile 6 is the same as the one that appeared in the OM 5. It has a capacity of 1,000mAh and can net you over six hours of gimbal usage under ideal conditions. It charges at up to 10W, which can get you from zero to 100% in just under 90 minutes. Keep in mind that you cannot leech power from the gimbal to charge your phone. This was a feature the DJI OM 4 supported but DJI eliminated with subsequent models.
