If you want to shoot professional looking stills and video using your mobile phone, the Osmo Mobile is for you. This new, Silver version of the Osmo Mobile gives you the chance to effortlessly create panoramas, timelapses and slow motion video, all stabilised using the included Zenmuse M1 gimbal.
The Silver Osmo Mobile features a number of shooting modes which will help you capture the perfect footage every time.
The four shooting positions that the Osmo Mobile can adopt are:
Utilising all four of these modes will allow you to capture lots of different angles and ensure that your footage is always smooth.
Share the very best moments using Facebook Live or YouTube Live direct from the DJI GO app using the Osmo Mobile Silver.
Available immediately on iOS and coming soon to Android.
Broadcast fully stabilised, high quality footage to all your friends and family on your favourite social network.
The Osmo Mobile Silver gives everyone the opportunity to take stunning video footage and photos. You will be able to produce near professional quality footage with your mobile phone thanks to these amazing features.
Use your Android or iOS smartphone to capture timelapses, stable video footage and even livestream your view around the world on Facebook. You can buy the Osmo Mobile in the UK with Heliguy, get free next day delivery and support from our UK based team.
This new Osmo will sync with the DJI Go app and let you select a target on your phone screen. Once you've chosen this target, be it a person or an object, the Osmo Mobile Silver will automatically keep that object in focus and in frame no matter how you move around.
ActiveTrack technology means you'll always capture the important action. 3-axis stabilisation will also allow you to produce crisp, clean footage with almost zero vibrations or shakiness.
Another fantastic feature of DJI's latest gimbal is the ability to create amazing motion timelapse videos.
The DJI Go app will guide you through how to create one and the results are absolutely stunning.
Any recent iPhone or Android phone should be supported by the Osmo Mobile Silver. However, there are a couple of things to keep in mind:
Please Note - Some features (ActiveTrack in particular) may not be available on certain devices. The iPhone 5s and the iPhone 5 do not support ActiveTrack.
Is The Osmo Mobile Silver able to hold any phone?
It supports smartphones from 58.6mm-84.8mm (width) and up to 8.4mm (thickness). This covers most phones currently available, including the iPhone SE, iPhone 6s Plus and Android phones of a similar size. Please Note: Compatibility might be affected by accessories attached to your phone and side button layout should also be considered.
How do I set up Osmo Mobile Silver?
Before powering up the Osmo Mobile, insert the battery and connect the unit to a power source using the included charging cable. Then, turn on the unit and pair it with your mobile device. Instructions will be shown in your DJI GO app which will guide you through the registration and activation process.
What are the hardware requirements of a phone using the Osmo Mobile Silver?
Bluetooth 4.0 is a minimum requirement. Though this has become a standard feature on current devices, please check compatibility.
Can I use ActiveTrack in any operation mode?
ActiveTrack is available in all modes except Portrait Mode. When shooting in this setting, subjects are more likely to move out of the frame, leaving no time for orientation adjustments.
Is ActiveTrack compatible with all devices?
No. It isn't compatible with older phones such as the iPhone 5s and iPhone 5, check the specifications for more information.
Can I add an external microphone to the Osmo Mobile Silver?
No. The recording of sound is handled by your device.
Are the controls and trigger the same as the original Osmo?
Yes. The Osmo Mobile Silver uses the same handle design as the Osmo. The only difference is that tapping the trigger three times doesn't rotate the phone. Instead, it switches from the front camera to the rear camera.
Can I zoom with the Osmo Mobile Silver?
Yes. Hold the trigger and move the joystick upward or downward to control the digital zoom. Please Note: Image quality will be affected as you zoom.
Can I replace the gimbal of the Osmo Mobile Silver another Zenmuse model?
The Osmo Mobile is sold as a complete unit, the gimbal is non-detachable.
Can I control camera settings from my smartphone?
Yes. DJI GO gives you control of Shutter Speed, ISO and White Balance from your phone. Please Note: This function is only supported on iOS devices.
Can I record at the resolution I have set inside the DJI Go app?
The DJI GO app automatically selects the optimal video resolution based on the performance and specs of your phone. If you want to manually change video resolution or ratio, you can access 'Camera Settings' in DJI GO. Max video resolution and photo size are limited by the hardware specs (i.e. the iPhone 6s can shoot video at 4K resolution while iPhone 6 can only shoot FHD video.)
Can I broadcast live videos through a third-party video platform? How?
Yes. Go to 'Settings', select 'Live Broadcast Platform' and choose 'Custom'; then follow the instructions. Please Note: Live Broadcasting is not available on Android devices.
What is the difference between Walk Mode and Sports Mode?
The main difference is the gimbal’s tracking speed. In Sports Mode, the gimbal follows movement closely, while in Walk Mode, it tracks moves more slowly.
Should I use Tripod Mode when shooting timelapses?
Yes. However, with hyperlapses, Tripod Mode should be turned off.
How many points can I set when shooting motion timelapses?
What is Pitch Lock Mode?
The shooting direction of the phone camera will not be affected by the movement of your arms.
What Battery does the Osmo Mobile Silver use? How long does it take to charge and how long does it last?
The Osmo Mobile uses the same battery as the original Osmo (980 mAh). A full charge requires 3 hours, and battery life can vary between 3 and 4.5 hours depending on the extent of usage.
Is the Osmo Mobile Silver compatible with Osmo’s High Capacity Battery and External Battery Extender?
Does the Osmo Mobile Silver connect to devices via Wi-Fi?
No. It connects via Bluetooth.
How do I know which device is mine when multiple Osmo Mobile devices are present?
Every Osmo Mobile has a unique serial number (located on the left of the phone holder). You can also change the name of your device through the DJI GO app.
Does the Osmo Mobile Silver support other Osmo accessories?
The Osmo Mobile has the same interchangeable mount as the Osmo meaning that a range of accessories are compatible. We recommend the Osmo Base or the Extension Rod with the Tripod for longer exposures or Motion Timelapses.
Can I attach an external lens to my device when using Osmo Mobile Silver?
Yes. However, external lenses may affect the balance of the gimbal.

Highly experienced team in their knowledge of drones & very willing to share their expertise with customers & general public. They have a great website with a vast array of kit. Competitively priced & fast delivery service. I can highly recommend them.
Fast delivery considering I bought in-between Christmas & new year. Spot-on item at a great price too.
Excellent service. Online ordering was well executed, product delivery was bang on time, and customer service was print and very helpful. The Osmo Pocket I bought worked as advertised.
Very professional and very helpful.

From: Colin barr
Can’t thank All concerned at heliguy especially Matthew and Michael Fantastic service and help over phone Highly recommended Will go nowhere else for my drone needs Many thanks
From: John Kirk
Thanks for your help. I think I will design one. I did see one that wraps around the base of the handle and has the tripod screw thread offset to the side. I think I can do better, a hinged bottom plate, with a tripod screw hole in the center and a clasp that inserts into the handle release slot.
Fabulously informative. I'm a professional photography by trade but I'm new to drones and perhaps asked some daft questions but they were replied very professionally and very informatively. Many thanks!
From: Michael Fox
Both my emails where answered to help try and fault find my problem, so I can see if it would be cost affective to repair myself. Before deciding weather it's worth spending too much to have the drone sent in for repair.
From: Lynne Medlock
Thank you for sending the receipt over so promptly, really appreciate your help!
I requested a repair. Told heliguy what was wrong. He gave me advice. Totaly sorted all my problems so didnt have to send away. I got a response 29 minutes after i messaged.
