The manuals and warranty details are kept in a different box This is a wonderful box Zhiyun label is there on top of the box This is how the Gimbal is placed inside the box A mini tripod is also placed in this box Also a charging cable is there inside this box It's quiet a big gimbal in our first see It's entirely different from the usual gimbal designs out there First time I am seeing a focus pull dial on smartphone Gimbal First time I am seeing a focus pull dial on smartphone Gimbal Most of the controls are there on the Gimbal so that we can operate the Gimbal without touching the smartphone so that we can operate the Gimbal without touching the smartphone There is a power button here Trigger buttons are there on the back There is a power button here Trigger buttons are there on the back There are dials behind the smartphone holder to correct the alignment after placing the phone on the holder There is a LED battery status bar here There is a LED battery status bar here There is a LED battery status bar here like that, there are so many buttons A different level design all together There is a universal tripod screw mount below There is a charging socket to charge the gimbal There is port to charge the mobile phone as well while shooting There is port to charge the mobile phone as well while shooting There is port to charge the mobile phone as well while shooting There is port to charge the mobile phone as well while shooting There are so many controls all together on this Gimbal A bit heavy though compared to DJI osmo 3 But I hope it will provide more stabilization while shooting But I hope it will provide more stabilization while shooting Mainly there are 4 modes on this Gimbal Pan following mode This is the default mode Then comes Lock mode Then full follow mode and then phone go mode There are 2 buttons to enable pan following and lock mode Other 2 modes are controlled using the trigger If we want to know further detailed about these modes Please do comment in comment box We can have a seperate video on that Full features of Zhiyun smooth 4 are controlled using a application called ZY play This app is available for android as well as iphone Select smooth 4 in this interface and place your phone on the Gimbal and turn on the Gimbal and then press connect now Do not turn on the Gimbal without placing phone over it So place the phone and press connect App will search for device and it will show our Gimbal when connected It will directly go to the camera interface This is how the camera interface looks like If you press home, it will go back to the previous page Status bars shows bluetooth connected and camera mode status of flash etc There is a button below left corner for object tracking you can draw a track after clicking on it The Gimbal will follow the object then onwards The Gimbal will follow the object then onwards Everything on this Gimbal is controlled with buttons on the Gimbal Everything on this Gimbal is controlled with buttons on the Gimbal Press the menu button and we will get a window like this You can select camera and select camera modes By default, its placed in default mode You can change it to timelapse or slow motion or vertigo mode or motion timelapse or slow motion or vertigo mode or motion timelapse We tried vertigo mode
You might have seen vertigo shots It gives a cool effect to the video So all these modes are separately there in the application Also motion time lapse is a very good feature Like that there are so many features here You can also access resolution, white balance etc also using this app However there are so many restrictions for android applications Like the resolution and frame rate IOS application has access to full features Manual mode , automatic switching also can be done in Scene option, you can optimize the Gimbal performance according to how you are shooting Like walking and running It will stabilize the Gimbal more There are filter options are there as well There is a dedicated button on the Gimbal to switch between zoom and focus and which can be controlled with the dial between zoom and focus and which can be controlled with the dial between zoom and focus and which can be controlled with the dial All Gimbal modes like pan following and lock etc and controlled with buttons we can access everything from the Gimbal itself Let's unbox DJIO osmo mobile 3 Gimbal There are 2 varients for this Gimbal Combo and normal The combo only includes tripod Which ever I brought is normal one So there is no tripod There is a small pouch provided along with this Gimbal Let's see what else are there A small band for fall protection charging cable charging cables manuals are warranty So these are the contents inside the box There is no box with this Gimbal as we got with Zhiyun A small carry pouch is there though which is good We will get a tripod as well with the combo pack If you want a tripod, can buy the combo pack or a cheap tripod from online This is how the gimbal looks like Its very small compared to Zhiyun smooth 4 It can be carried in a pocket Even we can carry it in hand its very handy Its very easy to calibrate There is a small mark on the Gimbal on where to place the smartphone camera we can unfold the gimbal like this its very easy to align the phone I will show you how to do that This gimbal has a very minimalistic design Not much buttons like zhiyun There is a thing I like on this is the Joystick buttton There is a thing I like on this is the Joystick buttton We can control the gimbal movements with this Joystick to all the 4 sides M button is the function button We can its function through DJI mimo application We can its function through DJI mimo application be default, one press to switch camera while gimbal on hold for standby mode can be set for quick menu There is a small record button on the top is provided trigger buttons are on the backside of the gimbal Same like zhiyun smooth 4 there are 4 modes in this gimbal as well we can control those modes other than lock mode through application lock modes are controlled with trigger buttons To access the full features of this Gimbal we have an application called DJI mimo Let's open the application we will get an interface like this then select camera button This is the camera interface of dji mimo The camera modes can be seen from the interface itself Modes like timelapse,story mode,etc The highlight of this dji is story mode There are so many story templates here Gimbal will automatically move and record which looks like the stories provided Gimbal will automatically move and record which looks like the stories provided Its a very good feature We can adjust the frame rates here We set the follow mode from the camera settings here There are some modes like tilt mode, FPV etc in tilt mode , the gimbal has movement only in pan axis it will not tilt up and down once we experiment ourselves with these, we will understand what each mode does Function of the M button can be set here totally, there are not much features on this application as in zhiyun like vertigo mode and all but story mode is something unique to this There is no motion timelapse mode but we can do that we can set the motion in the settings and set the path need a tripod though Totally, A good app with most of the features But here also, some restrictions for android app and full features for ios app Personally with our use, we liked DJI osmo mobile 3 Because its very user friendly Very easy for beginners to start with very handy Easy to carry For Smooth 4 my hand always touches the zoom / focus dial unknowingly which makes videos sometime out of focus But Smooth 4 is not a bad gimbal Since we found osmo mobile 2 is easy to carry we preferred it The build quality and customer service of DJI is top notch but zhiyun fails there but zhiyun fails there When we initially got smooth 4, we shot a video with it which I gave it in icard above You can watch and understand the performance If you found this video useful, subscribe this channel enable bell button like, and comment as well We will meet again with a new video !! Bye!!
