NEW YORK, Sept. 8, 2021 /PRNewswire/ — B&H is excited to announce the DJI OM 5 Smartphone Gimbal. The OM 5 succeeds last year’s OM 4 as the new DJI flagship stabilizer, bringing with it across-the-board improvements to its hardware and software, as well as adding some brand-new features.

DJI OM 5 Smartphone Gimbal

Key Features

  • Extendable Smartphone Gimbal Stabilizer
  • Magnetic Phone Clamp, Strong Torque
  • Even More Compact, up to 10.2 oz Load
  • 8.5″ Extension Rod
  • Dynamic Zoom, SpinShot, Story Mode
  • ActiveTrack 4.0, Follow, and Sport Modes
  • Supports Smartphones up to 3.3″ Wide
  • Time-Lapse, Hyperlapse, Panorama Modes
  • Control Gimbal/Phone with DJI Mimo App

New to the DJI OM 5 Gimbal is a built-in 215mm extension rod that allows users to capture footage from farther away while effectively doubling as a selfie stick. Even better: the OM 5 manages to incorporate this extension rod without compromising the same size, weight, and foldability that made the OM 4 so popular. In fact, the folded and unfolded footprint of the OM 5 is smaller than the folded and unfolded footprint of its predecessor. The new design also incorporates metal joints to enhance durability, so you can add «more rugged» to its growing list of features.

On the software side of things, DJI used the OM 5 to introduce its new ShotGuides feature. Primarily designed for new users, ShotGuides automatically recognizes your surrounding environment and recommends helpful shooting tips and creative templates.

Existing software features, such as ActiveTrack 4.0, were also improved. Highly regarded for its ability to track human subjects accurately, the newly updated ActiveTrack 4.0 not only improves the OM 5’s recognition capabilities, but it also now allows users to track pets accurately, as well.  

Along with the new and improved features, many of the fan-favorite shooting modes will be returning, including DynamicZoom, SpinShot, Timelaps, CloneMe Pano, and more.
