DJI Releases New Generation of Smartphone Gimbal, OM 5 Priced At $159

Chinese drone manufacturer DJI on September 8 released the DJI OM 5, a handheld gimbal for smartphones, with a price of $159. The new product includes the stabilizer, a magnetic phone clamp, a grip tripod, a storage pouch and other parts.

The DJI OM 5 inherits the firm’s 3-axis stabilization technology and the magnetic quick-release design, which shoots smoother pictures. Available in two new eye-catching colors – Sunset White and Athens Grey – the product helps users capture ultra-steady, unique video content with just a few taps.

In terms of design, the OM 5 has a reformulated structure, reducing the overall size by a third and weight by a quarter, compared with previous models. At the same time, this product also added a built-in 215 mm extension rod, allowing users to shoot more flexibly.

The product has a new shooting guide function that intelligently identifies scenes and enables a variety of shooting templates including “beach” and “food”.
