In The Limelight
The DJI OM 4 is the newest addition to the growing gimbal market. It was released on the 26th of August and has been in the limelight since. What is though that makes this gimbal so special? Well, there is one major feature of this gimbal that makes it stand out to its predecessors and competitors. The DJI OM 4 uses magnets to quickly and easily secure your smartphone to the gimbal.
A Quick Two Minute Review
Just as any other gimbal the DJI OM 4 has the aim to help you capture shake-free and steady videos. However, with this new addition to the market, it has become easier than ever before to capture high-quality video footage. Having to mount and unmount your phone from a gimbal´s secure grappling claw every time you feel a creative burst, or wanting to capture a moment, is tiresome and often time-consuming. The strong magnets on the DJI OM 4 grappling hook and the ones on the arm of the gimbal make your phone feel secure and makes the mounting process smooth and fast. With the combination of the 3-axis motors and the electronic stabilization, you can create a neat dolly effect for your videos.
