Today, DJI is launching the newest entry in its line of smartphone stabilization gimbals: the DJI Osmo Mobile 3. As with previous iterations in the Osmo Mobile series, you snap your smartphone into the gimbal and use Bluetooth to get crisp and stable video shots.
However, the Osmo Mobile 3 has a distinct advantage over previous DJI gimbals as well as most competitor products: the DJI Osmo Mobile 3 folds up, making it incredibly portable.
One of the biggest annoyances when it comes to smartphone gimbals is how big they are. Sure, you can make them flat so they take up less room, but they still take up way more real estate in a backpack than most travelers would like.
If you fold up the Osmo Mobile 3, the device takes up less backpack space than pretty much any other gimbal, which is terrific news. Although it’s far from pocket-sized, it could now easily fit into a shoulder bag or fanny pack.
