DJI Osmo Mobile 3 FoldedThe biggest design change from the previous Osmo Mobile 2, is the ability to fold the gimbal (even with a smartphone attached) in half making it super easy to carry around with you in a backpack or other small bag.

The ergonomic body fits comfortably in your hand brings back the trigger that included was part of the design of the original Osmo Mobile, but omitted from the Mobile 2.

The trigger supports quick switching through the various gimbal modes as well as activating the Sport mode and ActiveTrack feature.

DJI has also made the Osmo Mobile 3 easier to balance than previous models, only requiring balancing of the roll access to get things started.

The other big design upgrade of note is that unlike Osmo Mobile 2, the charging port and headphone jack of a mounted smartphone are no longer blocked, making it easier to use the microphone or charge the phone while using Osmo Mobile 3.
