Smart Features

Timelapse
Three modes of timelapse can be chosen:
· Fixed Angle: Equipped with the provided tripod, the camera can manipulate how frame rate is captured and we can feel how time flies in an entirely new dimension.
· Custom Motion: After setting up 2-4 positions for gimbal movements, the gimbal can move to each position in sequence, and we can see the camera movements from different perspectives the whole way through.
· Hyperlapse: It helps enable a stable experience of filming a travel with your mobile device. At this time, ActiveTrack can make the most of the device, realizing more stunning video effects.


Panorama
It helps take a 3×3, 240°, and CloneMe panoramic photo in portrait or landscape mode.
· 3×3 Panorama: After auto taking nine photos at a time, it will merge them into one single photo.
· 240° (or 1×7) Panorama: After auto taking seven photos at a time, it will merge them into one single photo.
· CloneMe Panorama: After auto taking three photos at a time, it will merge them into one single photo.


Story Mode
It contains multiple templates that allow you to create cinematic short videos or vlogs with just a few taps.


Dynamic Zoom
You can choose Move Out or In mode, easing the way to zoom in or out. It helps achieve the visual effect of stretching and compression of the image, make an epic story even with a single phone.


Live Streaming
It is not currently supported. If you would like to use this feature, it is recommended to use a third-party app instead of DJI Mimo. At this time, Osmo Mobile 6 can also be a great partner, enabling a stable shooting experience. For instance, use the joystick to adjustment the gimbal movements such as different shooting angles and re-centering.


How to Get it Charged
You need to find a micro USB adapter first, and then get the device charged with the provided USB-C cable connected to the adapter. If a 5V2A adapter is used, it will take approximately 1.5h to get it fully charged.
· If you do not have an adapter at hand, please find the “10W USB adapter” on an online store or buy it from a local store.

Sky high price tag?  I'm not sure what the selling price is in Brazil, but seemed very reasonable here in the US.  Compared to the price of the phone you are stabilizing, it was a tenth of that.
