DJI Osmo Mobile 3

Elevate your TikTok game with the DJI Osmo Mobile 3 phone stabilizer.

Recently, while shooting B-roll video footage for a product review, I learned just how valuable a smartphone gimbal can be. It not only helps keep the camera steady, but also allows for much more variety in your shots.

DJI's popular Osmo Mobile 3 originally sold for $119 and now runs $99. However, for a limited time, and while supplies last, Adorama has the Osmo Mobile 3 Travel Bundle for $85. In addition to the gimbal, you get a shoulder bag, tripod, USB-C power adapter and microfiber cleaning cloth. (Note: This was Adorama's Deal of the Day... yesterday. Not sure how much longer it'll be available.)

Anyone with video aspirations (TikTok, moviemaking or other) would welcome a tool like this. The Osmo Mobile 3 is a folding, travel-friendly smartphone stabilizer designed to help you capture rock-steady footage. See the similar GoPro Karma Grip in the video below if you're not clear on the concept.)

You'll want to read Josh Goldman's Osmo Mobile 3 preview to learn more. He loved all aspects of the design, from the compact (when folded) frame to the weight to the 15-hour battery life.

As you'll see in that story, the gimbal originally sold for $119 without any accessories. As for the newer DJI OM4 (the "Osmo Mobile" branding is gone), which relies on a magnetic mount rather than a clamp, it's $149.

At $85, this is priced close to many an off-brand gimbal, ones likely to have a greater learning curve and less support. Given the choice, I'd pick DJI every time.
