Otherwise, the Osmo Mobile 3 packs numerous same features of the Osmo 2, letting you maneuver it with a joystick and choose modes like Story, Sport, TimeLapse and Slow Motion. Unlike some gimbals, the Mobile 3 isn't created to be worn but held or placed on a tripod, but thanks to smart features this could be all you need to start shooting your own videos.

You can purchase the Osmo Mobile 3 on DJI's website now in two packages.

The 3-axis gimbal can pan from -162.5° to 170.3°, roll from -85.1° to 252.2° and tilt from -104.5° to 235.7°, and has a maximum controllable speed of 120° per second. Instead, the Osmo Mobile 3's biggest improvements lie in its hardware, which combines the best features from earlier versions in a newly re-engineered body.

By using ActiveTrack, users can tap the trigger once, and Osmo Mobile 3 will begin tracking while keeping the subject centered within the frame.

When folded, the Osmo Mobile 3 is nearly half the size of its predecessors.

HyperLapse: Take the appealing visuals from Timelapse and add movement by manually moving Osmo Mobile 3 with you. Do you now need a gimbal for your phone? This allows the device to hold a wider range of phones and includes new anchors for attaching counterweights if necessary. That's not exactly ideal for vloggers, especially in the heat of action.

With the ability to quickly unfold and mount a mobile phone, plus 15 hours of battery, users are sure to never miss life's most memorable moments. With ActiveTrack 3.0, the gimbal can be set on its own and will move the smartphone to follow the subject automatically. Moreover, the buttons offer all the functions whilst you keep operating the gimbal with single-hand.

And to top everything off, the new Osmo Mobile 3 costs about $30 less than the outgoing model at $US120 ($177) (versus $209 for the Osmo Mobile 2). However, the company also offers smartphone gimbals under the Osmo series. DJI's gimbal accepts a standard 1/4-inch threaded screw instead of something like GoPro's proprietary mounting system, so if you already have a travel-friendly tripod, you don't need DJI's add-on stand.
