Short-form videos are capturing more minds and imaginations than ever before and to make sticky ones, you need a great idea that is well shot. While you can enlist the help of an 18yr old Tik-Tok-er for the former, there’s only one way you can shoot better with a smartphone - attach it to a gimbal. DJI has been making some of the better ones and over the years, they have refined their software and chipped away the rough edges off the hardware. The OM5 improves upon the OM4 in many ways and borrows tricks from other DJI products as well, while getting smaller and more pocketable.
Design: Smaller and lighter
Performance: Steady shots
Overall, what it does offer is a fantastic build quality with a payload that can even handle an iPhone 13 Pro Max with its case on and the ability to shoot video in an almost professionally stabilised manner. Extending the telescopic arm will compromise on the video stabilisation but that’s a trade off for getting a more creative angle. For 15000 bucks, the DJI OM5 can add a sheen of professionalism to your content that would otherwise have you shelling out a lot more for a better smartphone, smoother roads or worse…new hands!
Well-designed accessory that is bound to elevate your content quality, but only if you spend time learning its limitations.
