DJI Osmo Cellular SE is a scaled down Osmo Cellular 6 with longer battery life

DJI has introduced the brand new Osmo Mobile SE gimbal for smartphones. It’s primarily an Osmo Mobile 6 with a smaller type issue, longer battery life and a greater price ticket. The Osmo Cellular SE has the identical load capability because the Osmo Cellular 6, and it’s suitable with all the identical equipment, together with the magnetic cellphone clamp, which is provided with it. Actually, it’s so near the Osmo Cellular 6 that I’m not fully positive why DJI is releasing this.

It has the latest Lively Observe tech for following topics, with Bluetooth 5.1 to keep up communication between the gimbal and your smartphone. It provides all the ordinary capturing options via the app, together with timelapse, panoramics and hyperlapse. It accepts smartphones as much as 3.3″ vast, which covers just about all of them – maybe aside from folding telephones – weighing as much as 10.2oz, or round 290g.

The 2 gimbals really appear to be very related with regards to their on-paper specs. Each gimbals are designed for smartphones, have the identical load capability and bodily functionality to carry the identical units. Each even have very related mechanical ranges, permitting for about the identical quantity of pan, tilt and roll. Each function an ordinary 1/4-20″ threaded socket on the underside for screwing right into a mini tripod and each cost up over USB-C.

That’s the place issues begin to get a bit of completely different, although. The DJI Osmo Cellular SE, regardless of being smaller than the Osmo Cellular 6, really has a better capability battery. The battery within the Osmo Cellular 6 provides a complete capability of seven.74Wh, which offers as much as about 6.4 hours of battery life in optimum circumstances with a well-balanced smartphone. The Osmo Cellular SE, then again, contains a 9.36Wh battery which DJI says will present a full 8 hours of battery life (with the identical caveats about well-balanced, and so forth.), though it does take a bit of longer to cost up. The OM6 might be charged in an hour and a half. The OMSE takes round two and 1 / 4 hours.


It’s an odd transfer for DJI to make, actually. The DJI Osmo Cellular 6 was solely introduced in September 2022, lower than 5 months in the past. This isn’t a substitute mannequin for the Osmo Cellular 6, however I’m not seeing what the attraction may be to the Osmo Cellular 6 anymore with the announcement of the Osmo Cellular SE. Naturally, it would cannibalise gross sales of the Osmo Cellular 6 as a result of it competes with it straight and no one’s actually going to exit and purchase each.

With this new gimbal being $50 cheaper than the Osmo Cellular 6 and having longer battery life, I don’t see what the draw is to the Osmo Cellular 6 anymore.

The DJI Osmo Cellular SE is accessible to buy now for $109 and is already delivery.
