Recently, while shooting B-roll video footage to review a product, I learned how valuable a smartphone gimbal can be. This not only helps keep the camera steady, but allows for a lot more variety in your shots.
DJI’s popular Osmo Mobile 3 originally sold for $ 119 and now runs for $ 99. However, for a limited time, and while making final supplies, Adorama has. In addition to the Gimbal, you get a shoulder bag, tripod, USB-C power adapter and microfiber cleaning cloth. (Note: It was Adorama of the Day … yesterday. Not sure how much more it will be available now.)
Anyone with video aspirations (TikTok, moviemaking or others) would welcome a tool like this. The Osmo Mobile 3 is a folding, travel-friendly smartphone stabilizer designed to help you capture rock-steady footage. See similarIf you are not clear on the concept in the video below.)
Would you like to read josh goldmanto know more. He liked all aspects of weight design, from compact (when folded) frames to 15-hour battery life.
As you will see in that story, the gimbal originally sold for $ 119 without any accessories. As for new(“Osmo Mobile” branding gone), which relies on a magnetic mount instead of a clamp, is $ 149.
At $ 85, it is close to a number of off-brand gimbals that are likely to have a greater learning curve and less support. Given the choice, I would choose DJI every time.
