This 3-axis gimbal makes for a fantastic software for content material creators, particularly in case your cellphone does not have the perfect digital or optical stabilisation.

The Osmo Cell Three will get some neat upgrades over its predecessor. It is now foldable for higher portability; has higher ergonomics; and boasts of latest shortcuts and gestures. We have been utilizing the DJI Osmo Cell Three for a couple of week now, and this is what we consider it.

The latter does not add any peak to the gimbal however it does have collapsable ft, so it may be used as an prolonged grip when closed or as an everyday tripod. The Osmo Cell Three weighs simply 405g, making it fairly mild. The handgrip and most components of the gimbal itself are fabricated from plastic, however the high quality is excellent.

We acquired the combo pack for assessment, which additionally consists of the case and tripod. The hardshell case is of excellent high quality and is stiff sufficient to supply good safety. We simply want it was sufficiently big to accommodate the tripod in it too.

DJI Osmo Cell Three efficiency

Earlier than powering this machine on, you will need to unfold it which is definitely carried out because of the spring-loaded arm. The arms of the gimbal additionally lock in place when its folded, because of rigorously positioned grooves and latches, so it does not by accident unfold. Earlier than you possibly can pop your cellphone into the clamp start utilizing it, the gimbal must be ‘activated’. This includes downloading and signing in to the DJI Mimo app, which is obtainable on the Google Play Retailer and Apple App Retailer. When you undergo the setup course of, which additionally checks and downloads any out there firmware replace for the gimbal, you are prepared to make use of the Osmo Cell 3.

The gimbal will robotically attempt to centre the cellphone you’ve put in however you can too manually modify its place by holding the lean motor. You may calibrate the cellphone’s place and angle by an choice throughout the Mimo app too. The Osmo Cell Three is compatible with most of at present’s fashionable telephones however not all options can be found for all telephones. As an illustration, slow-motion video and 60fps video within the Mimo app is at present solely out there on iPhones. Taking pictures at 4K remains to be not out there on some Android telephones such because the Realme X2 Pro (Review), however it’s out there on others just like the Samsung Galaxy Note 9 (Review). Nevertheless, even when your cellphone is just not on the checklist, you will nonetheless be capable to use all the fundamental options of the app. Hopefully, we must always see higher help in future variations of it.

We examined the Osmo Cell Three with quite a lot of telephones such because the Redmi Note 8 (Review), Realme X2 Professional Grasp Version, Samsung Galaxy Be aware 9, and Apple iPhone 11 Pro. The holder for the cellphone can also be cleverly designed, so it does not are available contact with any of its buttons, thereby permitting you to centre it correctly. We observed that every one the telephones we tried acquired fairly heat after prolonged use of the Mimo app, and it did have a tendency to empty their batteries shortly. If you’re not capturing, it is best to show the display screen off or put the gimbal in standby mode to preserve energy on each units.

The Osmo Cell Three allows you to seize professional-looking stabilised movies with out a lot effort. That is particularly helpful on telephones that do not have digital stabilisation or do not do a superb job of it. The Redmi Be aware 8, as an example, shoots first rate high quality 4K movies within the day however with out stabilisation. The Osmo Cell Three fixes this, making an in any other case unusable video clip appear like it has been shot on a way more costly cellphone.

We even tried capturing a video whereas zoomed in, which exaggerates shakiness from even tiny actions. Even whereas strolling, the gimbal made a world of a distinction. If in case you have a high-end cellphone with optical stabilisation, capturing in low mild remains to be difficult. Having a stabiliser for such conditions makes a noticeable distinction to the ultimate output.

Moreover customary photographs and movies, the Mimo app additionally affords different capturing modes and options too. It allows you to seize professional-looking movement timelapse movies, the place you possibly can set the trail the gimbal will comply with all through the timelapse. Hyperlapse movies are additionally attainable, and the tip outcomes regarded excellent to us, even with a funds cellphone such because the Redmi Be aware 8.

‘Story Mode’ allows you to create brief tales simply. All it’s important to do it decide a template and comply with the information to seize brief clips, that are then robotically stitched along with transitions, on-screen textual content, and music. You even have the choice to share these clips instantly on social platforms.

For panoramas, you possibly can choose a 180-degree shot or a wider one, which captures much more angles. Nevertheless, with the latter, the tip outcome did not all the time look good and we observed some inconsistencies within the stitching at instances. Additionally, the Osmo Cell 3’s gimbal nonetheless has a restrict to how far it might rotate, so you possibly can’t take 360 diploma photographs or panoramas on this one.

The Osmo Cell Three additionally options ActiveTrack 3.0, which is obtainable by the Mimo app. You may choose the thing you need to comply with by the viewfinder, and the gimbal will robotically observe it to make sure it is all the time within the centre of the body. It labored very nicely with individuals, however not a lot with fast-moving objects. There is a Sport Mode which may be engaged while you double-press and maintain the set off button. This allows lively monitoring on the thing within the centre of the body and will increase the pace of the motors, so the gimbal can pan and tilt extra quickly. ActiveTrack 3.Zero can be enabled by displaying a palm or ‘V’ signal gesture to the digicam, however this must be enabled within the app’s settings.

Different gestures embody a double-tap on the Mode button flip the cellphone horizontally or vertically; and a triple-tap on the set off button to change between the entrance and rear cameras. You too can choose to allow ‘Fast Menu,’ which helps you to use the joystick to navigate by all of the capturing modes, so that you by no means have to succeed in to your cellphone’s display screen.

DJI claims a battery lifetime of as much as 15 hours. With precise utilization, we discovered the battery life to be nearer to 10 hours, which remains to be not unhealthy. We predict this ought to be greater than sufficient runtime for no matter you will be filming at a stretch. The Osmo Cell Three can be utilized whereas it is charging so you could possibly technically use it for lots longer. Charging it absolutely took us about two and a half hours when it was linked to a 10W adapter.

One of the best half is that it is easy to make use of, and it might make movies shot even with a funds smartphone look extra skilled. We love how compact it will get when folded up; the topic monitoring function works nicely on individuals; and the Mimo app affords helpful capturing modes. We hope that DJI updates the app to help extra resolutions and framerates on a wider collection of Android telephones.

The beginning value of Rs. 8,999 is excellent contemplating the efficiency and options that this machine affords. We‘d advocate placing in a bit extra money and getting the ‘Combo’ bundle, because the hardcase is a must have for those who journey quite a bit and the tripod may be very useful for timelapse photographs.
