DJI has been a quintessential part for most people — drones, portable cameras, action cameras, you name it, they have it. With the existence of advanced smartphone cameras, there’s no doubt that mobile cinematography is also getting better. DJI continues to prove that they are the world’s leader in creative camera technology with the Osmo Mobile 3.

The third iteration of the Osmo Mobile is the first folding stabilizer made by DJI. They have specifically thought of its new folding design to make it more portable for everyone. The redesign also paves way for clutter-free operation, even when you are using charging cables and external mics.

It doesn’t stop there as they also included efficient and convenient buttons so you’re ready to shoot whenever, wherever. You can access Quick Roll by pressing the Mode (M) button twice šŸ¤ŸšŸ¼. That feature automatically rotates the phone’s orientation from landscape to portrait (and vice versa).

ActiveTrack 3.0

ActiveTrack 3.0 also helps in re-centering the subject being tracked. A trigger exists for locking orientation and rotating the gimbal for selfies. There’s also a dedicated zoom slider on the stabilizer’s side for hassle-free operation. In addition, users can control the zoom speed based on their preference.

DJI Mimo App and Story Mode

With the DJI Mimo App, you can access its pre-programmed modes during and after shooting. Story Mode lets you edit videos right away with preset music, transitions, and filters. There are also 13 templates you can choose from.

DJI Osmo Mobile 3 with Sport Mode

Several modes to play with

TheĀ Sport Mode increases the stabilizer’s responsiveness in shooting subjects that are fast-paced. There’s also the Gesture Control which automatically snaps a selfie once you pose for the camera — a peace sign, perhaps?. Panorama mode is also included with 3×3 or 180Āŗ options when shooting. Don’t worry, the Slow Motion Mode is also present with 4X or 8X speed options.

Get more creative with TimeLapse, MotionLapse, and HyperLapse. They all sound similar but they are different in their own ways.

TimeLapse lets you shoot longer videos in a shorter playback duration. MotionLapse combines the function of TimeLapse, but with the addition of the movement of a dynamic element you selected in the frame. Lastly,Ā HyperLapse works just likeĀ TimeLapse but adds more movement by moving the stabilizer along with you. It works best not just because of EIS (Electronic Image Stabilization), but also with DJI’s ActiveTrack 3.0.

Pricing and availability

The DJI Osmo Mobile 3 is currently available in DJI’s flagship stores and select Apple Stores in the United States. It’s currently sold in two packages: The standard package with the wrist strap, storage pouch, and anti-slip pads retails for US$ 105. Meanwhile, there’s a US$ 125 package that includes everything in the standard version, plus the Osmo Grip Tripod and Osmo Carrying Case.

Global availability and local pricing has yet to be announced.

Apple is developing a MagSafe wireless powerbank

Prototype stages already

Published

on

When Appleā€™s new MagSafe system launched late last year, the magnetic charging system promised a new wave of Apple accessories. At the time, however, the system focused on wireless charging. Eventually, MagSafe promises to expand into its own empire of different functionalities and form factors. Now, apart from its initial slew of sleeves, Apple is reportedly developing a MagSafe wireless powerbank for the system.

According to a Bloomberg source, the company is already well on its way to developing the MagSafe accessory. Unfortunately, Apple has reportedly ran into some snags on the way to perfecting it. Apparently, the currently reported prototype caused false overheating alerts, among other problems. Despite rumors of its development, Apple will likely shelf the accessory until it can develop a better one.

For anyone following Appleā€™s developmental process over the years, such a delay is not a surprise. Apple usually takes its time optimizing products before launching them — to the point of falling behind to Android. Given Appleā€™s tremendous investment in a new MagSafe ecosystem, the company is likely working extra hard on perfected products to boost the system further.

For accessory aficionados, a wireless powerbank isnā€™t an entirely new concept. Numerous accessory makers have already released several powerbanks using the Qi wireless charging system. In Appleā€™s defense, a MagSafe powerbank will take advantage of the systemā€™s magnetic attachment system, preventing the powerbank from slipping and sliding everywhere.
