DJI OM 5 Overview:


The DJI OM 5 comes with a three-axis handheld stabilizer that physically moves to balance the camera movement, resulting in a naturally smooth motion. As mentioned in the beginning, this gimbal doubles as a selfie stick to help take photos at high and low angles.

DJI OM 5 Design

Moreover, the OM 5 retains the same foldable design principle as its predecessor. However, it’s a tad bit smaller and lighter. It also includes an improved phone clip that stretches out even further to accommodate taller phones.


Furthermore, you get a physical button that lets you access the gimbal’s core features. There’s something called “ShotGuides” that recognizes the surroundings and recommends shooting tips. Similarly, with ActiveTrack 4.0, the OM 5 can help you keep moving subjects in focus better.

There’s also a gesture control feature that lets you click photos with simple hand gestures. Furthermore, after filming videos, it will auto-edit all the clips into a single finished film and sync it with DJI’s Mimo app.

Rest of the specs

In order to make this iteration more compact, the battery’s capacity has been reduced. While the OM 4 featured a 2450mAh battery, the OM 5 comes with a much smaller 1000mAh cell. Besides this, it retains other features available on OM 4 like DynamicZoom, timelapse, motion-lapse, hyper-lapse modes, panoramas, spin shot, story mode templates, and glamor effects.
