On Thursday, DJI announced the DJI Osmo Mobile 6, a handheld stabilizer that works for smartphones and works with the iPhone 14’s Action Mode.

The iPhone 14 series received Action Mode, a software feature that stabilizes videos, but sometimes hardware like the Osmo Mobile 6 is better for specific purposes. Osmo Mobile 6 has 3-axis stabilization, a new Quick Launch function and ActiveTrack 5.0.

DJI’s Mimo app and a recommended app called LightCut are both available for video editing. LightCut includes AI-powered editing and one-tap video templates.

Quick Launch is a feature for iPhones that automatically triggers the Mimo app to open the camera immediately. DJI says this gets the device ready for action three times faster than previous models.

ActiveTrack 5.0 offers more stable tracking at longer distances and lets a phone’s front-facing camera track subjects that are quickly moving around, turning to the side or spinning. It automatically keeps the subject in the center of attention.

Four gimbal modes

  • Follow: The camera view follows the pan and tilt movements of the gimbal and remains level during rolls. This mode is great for shooting up, down and diagonally.
  • Toggle lock: The camera view only follows the gimbal pan movement and remains stable during tilt and roll — ideal for shooting horizontally or moving around a subject.
  • FPV: In FPV mode, all three axes of the gimbal follow the movement of the handle. This mode works best for stationary subjects.
  • SpinShot: Push the joystick left or right to control the rotation of the camera view and create dynamic shots. This mode is good for shooting push, pull and high angle shots.

Intelligent functions

  • Timeshift: Warp time and space with Timelapse, Motionlapse and Hyperlapse to blend moments together.
  • DynamicZoom: Use Move In and Move Out to get stretching and compressing visual effects.
  • Motion control: Simple gestures make it easy to take a selfie or group photo.
  • Panorama: Three different panorama modes – 3×3, 240 and CloneMe – are available to help capture landscapes or create compositions.
  • History mode: Various templates help combine camera movements, transitions, audio tracks and more.
