Josh Lewis - 2 weeks ago

Avid visitors to PhotoBite will be aware of DJI’s latest revelation, the DJI OM 4, which is the gimbal market leader’s latest handheld stabilisation device for smartphone shooters. Scroll down to watch our hands-on review to see if it’s for you!

We were lucky enough to be sent the new DJI OM 4 and spent some time with it, playing with its many features and testing its suitability for its target market.

It’s a premium stabiliser, as you’d expect from DJI, and is a re-branded update from the successful Osmo Mobile range. It boasts a new ‘quick-snap’ magnetic attachment system, along with [we’re told] simple-to-use operation, upgraded motors, new creative capture modes and portable 3-axis folding design. Check out our full review below, which has been racking up the views on YouTube, with a rather pleasant early comment from ‘Clockwork Josh’, who we definitely don’t know. You can see our original news piece for the DJI OM 4 HERE.

PhotoBite DJI OM 4 review -
DJI OM 4:- The newly named DJI OM 4, which follows from where DJI's Osmo range of handheld 'mobile' gimbals left off, is a premium piece of filmmaking kit [primarily]. At its price-point and considering the number of functions and features that are packed into its tiny, and relatively light, frame; it has to be leading the way in its field. We loved testing it and don't really want to give it back.

Pros

  • Great build quality
  • You can't argue with 15 hours battery life
  • Super simple to use
  • Loaded with features and functions
  • The new magnetic clip system is a no brainer

Cons

  • Mini tripod legs are a little flimsy, but strong enough for a piece of kit that's likely to be in your hand 90% of the time
