In the handheld gimbal market, DJI continues to excel with their lineup of handheld gimbals for mobile phones. Of course, that has always been at a cost – primarily, the hassle of inserting your phone into the grip on the gimbal before you could enjoy that beautiful smooth gimbal footage.
Their latest OM 4 uses a magnetic clamp so you attach it to the phone first, then using the power of magnetism, it clicks in place on the gimbal. Very smooth.
It will retail for $149 USD which is a pretty good deal for a handheld gimbal.

DJI, the world leader in civilian drones and creative camera technology, today unveiled the DJI OM 4, a premium smartphone stabilizer that helps capture important moments that pull you in. The rebranded sequel to DJI’s popular Osmo Mobile line, the DJI OM 4, features a highly functional quick-snap magnetic phone attachment system, intuitive operation, upgraded motors, new creative capture modes and a portable folding design. As mobile phone cameras become more advanced, the DJI OM 4 optimizes their technology by helping anyone easily create smoother, higher quality and more visually appealing images and videos. Using high-quality materials, robust motors and the absolute latest in 3-axis stabilizer technology, the DJI OM 4 offers everyone an effortless way to capture compelling content with just a few taps of your finger.
The Smartphone Stabilizer You’ll Use Every Day
The DJI OM 4’s folding design makes it portable and convenient to take everywhere and the perfect companion for all of life’s adventures, whether on upcoming road trips, video conferencing with friends far away or summertime grilling in the backyard with family. On a full charge, the DJI OM 4 offers an impressive battery life of 15 hours and can also be used as a portable battery charger if need be. With durable, premium materials made to last and its easy to use features, the DJI OM 4 will quickly integrate into daily life as the smartphone stabilizer you won’t leave home without. It is compatible with the vast majority of smartphones. Using upgraded motors, it can now support a heavier weight than its predecessors.
“As the DJI OM smartphone stabilizers have evolved over the years, every iteration has made it easier for anyone to add rock-solid stabilization to their photos and videos. With its new magnetic attachment and folding design, the DJI OM 4 again goes farther so anyone, no matter their experience with gimbals, can pick it up and make content that pulls in the viewer,” said Paul Pan, Senior Product Line Manager at DJI. “As people around the globe now rely on their smartphones to navigate the new work-from-home world, stay connected with loved ones and showcase their lives, the DJI OM 4 is our phone’s companion we need to make capturing footage fun, smooth and magnetic.”
Easier Than Ever Before
The DJI OM 4 transforms handheld stabilizer technology with a new and unique high-grade magnetic attachment design that makes it simpler than ever to attach and balance your phone to DJI OM 4. Two new options allow for quick and easy attachment and detachment of your phone. A sleek, secure and lightweight metal clamp connects to the back of your phone and can remain fixed to it during daily use, while ready to instantly attach to the DJI OM 4. A second option removes the balancing step by sticking an aesthetically designed magnetic mount with ring holder onto the back of your phone allowing snapping onto DJI OM4 even easier. The intuitive design allows DJI OM 4 users to access and control its core features and functions with just one hand. When not in immediate use, the DJI OM 4 can stay in Standby Mode to be easily reactivated at any moment.
Capture Content You’ll Want To Share
The DJI OM 4 and the DJI Mimo app work together to help anyone generate top-quality content easily, with pre-programmed shooting modes and professional-grade features that make your photos and videos jump off the screen:

- Timelapse, Motionlapse, Hyperlapse: Show the passing of time in a sped-up form using TimeLapse; Motionlapse, which adds set movement points for the gimbal; or HyperLapse to physically move with the gimbal. All three modes use Electronic Image Stabilization (EIS) technology as well as the 3-axis gimbal for an added level of smoothness. Easily share these creative videos on social media for the world to enjoy.
