Your smartphone is an incredible video camera, but if you hold it in your hand while you shoot, your videos will always look more like home movies than cinematic shots. That's where DJI's Osmo Mobile 3 comes in.
The popular gimbal holds your smartphone steady no matter how shaky your hands are, and allows you to achieve cinema-quality pans and tilts with an easy-to-reach joystick. The effect, especially when zoomed in, is profound:
A click of the trigger on the underside of the handle even activates "ActiveTrack," which detects people in your frame, and automatically pans, tilts, and levels to keep the focus of the video on them. Just use your legs to keep up with the subject, and the Osmo will do the rest.
It's been a favorite of professional vloggers since it was released, but at just $89 today (down from $119), it's well within reach for anyone that just wants to capture better home movies.
