Because now you can attach and remove it using a magnetic holder. The foldable handheld gimbal is also not too heavy at 390 g.

Functions of DJI OM 4 and Mimo App

With the DJI OM 4 you get everything you need in the standard scope of delivery. If you want to get started and make cinematic recordings, you have various options. On the one hand, the pure use of the gimbal for image stabilization with manual camera work. On the other hand, there is app-controlled recording, for example with tracking and camera movements (e.g. mounted on the tripod supplied). 

The story mode is just as much a part of the functions as the gesture control (so that you don't have to stand behind the camera to operate it), ActiveTrack 3.0 (for tracking marked people or objects) and Quick Roll (for quickly switching from portrait to landscape mode and back). It gets even cooler with hyperlapse, motionlapse and time-lapse recordings, which turn the holiday video into a cinema experience. 

There is also slow motion, 240 ° panorama, 3 x 3 panorama (for poster images), DynamicZoom (for vertigo effect) and SpinShot for a rotating camera. Creative photos are also created by the CloneMe panorama, in which a person can be seen three times in the same panorama. All in all, a whole lot of functions that will improve the quality of your photos and video recordings. This saves time that you don't have to spend in Photoshop or an editing program.

DJI Mimo App for iOS and Android

For example, to use the gesture control known from current DJI drones, you need the DJI Mimo app on your smartphone for the OM 4. This communicates with the gimbal via Bluetooth and thus enables the unique recording modes. The DJI Mimo download for iOS and Android can of course be found in Apple App Store as well as in the Google Play Store.
