The DJI OM 4 is again a bit better than its predecessor, but there is still a lot of room for improvement.

In many cases, the smartphone is not quite horizontal in the gimbal. Because of the smartphone, the clamp and possible smartphone case, the DJI can't prevent this. On the software side, it would not be a big deal to integrate a function into the Mimo app that measures the horizontal deviation of the smartphone to the horizon and then adds it to the gimbal settings as a correction so that the gimbal is aligned horizontally.

There are also some bugs and improvements that are just absolutely necessary!

Here is my enumeration:
- Measurement of horizon deviation of the smartphone and automatic correction of the gimbal

- The Mimo app always starts with the wrong video resolution. Instead of 4k (last used) the app starts with a video resolution of 720p. In my eyes a serious error!

- The gimbal always starts in portrait mode. You should be able to set that, it should be no big deal to realize it in the software.

In my opinion an upgrade from DJI Osmo Mobile 3 to DJI OM 4 does not really make sense, except that the smartphone can be attached and removed much faster.

I think it depends on a person, whether he/she needs DJI OM 4 or not. If you need to attach ur phone and to remove it fast, then OM 4 is definitely your choice. There are other improvements also, but this one is the most impotant for me, for example. So I prefer OM 4 and really like it

I agree. In the videos showing the use of the OM 4 they don't show how to center the clamp on your iPhone model to get it centered. Also, the Mimo app hasn't been updated since it was first released. As a Realtor I would love to have more choices and be allow to add more video clips to the final video. Having only a few simply sin't enough and adding more should not be a problem for DJI programmers to do. When the OM4 was introduced an updated version of the Mimo app should have been introduced too. It would be just like when Apple introduces a new iOS at the same time it introduces the new iPhone. So when I purchase my new iPhone 12 Pro Max I will know I will be using the new iOS 14. One more thing, with the measurements of the new iPhone 12 Pro Max known for months DJI should have made it clear that the new OM4 would work with that iPhone model. They don't. I'm pretty sure it will or I would not have purchased the OM4 when it first came out but this should have been an obvious thing to include in the marketing/specs of the OM4.

I sold my old DJI Osmo 3 to a colleague for $75. He is happy that he has an Osmo 3 and I am happy that it didn't cost me full price to get the OM4. I like the convenience of the magnet and I always like to have the last equipment. But that's just me.

DJI may not be allowed to say that the new iphone 12 pro max is also compatible.

Or DJI doesn't want to say and guarantee it without having an iphone 12 pro max in his hands.

What are the odds the new Magsafe would work with the OM4?

Is the new iPhone 12 Pro Max compatible with the osmo 4?

Actually, unless I misunderstand your question, I believe that functionality is there.  If you have the camera in the horizontal position and click the "..." you will see this screen. Note the arrow pointing to Horizontal Gimbal Adjustment.



If you touch that, the first thing you see is a visual showing how to align the clamp.  You can see the marks next to the edges of the clamp.



When you click OK you are then taken to another screen where you can plug in a horizontal adjustment.



Isn't this what you were talking about?
