Hello there Drey. I. Good day and thank you for reaching out. The DJI Osmo Mobile 6 is an intelligent smartphone stabilizer packed with creative features. It's not only compact and easily foldable to fit in your palm, but also launches automatically once unfolded to capture shots at a moment's notice. Get dynamic angles and perfect selfies by using the built-in extension rod. A whole host of intelligent functions and guides are at your disposal. The DJI Mimo Application ( https://www.dji.com/downloads/djiapp/dji-mimo ) facilitates efficient shooting, editing, and sharing, allowing you to catch every unforgettable moment. For additional reference I will post a DJI Link ( https://www.dji.com/products/com ... ndsite&from=nav ) where in you can compare the specifications of the new DJI Osmo Mobile 6 to the DJI Osmo Mobile 3 and with other DJI Osmo Mobile as well. Thank you.

I had the OM3 and then OM5 and find the OM6 to be a nice upgrade, particularly with a larger phone. I like the separate phone holder, easy-on, roller for zoom, and more compact when folded.

I have sold my OM1 and got a Pocket 2.
That works better for me.

Why do you want that?
I really did not like having to use my phone for this.
I liked having a dedicated camera instead.

Yeah, I know that urge.
But I have to fight it and be rational.
And I did not like to have to work with video from my phone or shoot video using my phone.
Especially for longer timelapses (that is what I use the Pocket 2 for a lot)

I'm a bass guitar player originally.
(all hobby btw)
So I have my 5 string and an amp modeler (zoom B3)

But I started making electronic music more, first with the band, so I got a Moog Subsequent 37 for nice sub bass.
Then I wanted to make more 'DAWLess' music and got a Roland MC-707.
Next I bought a Moog Minitaur, because I really love that Moog sound.
And a Source Audio Collider for some reverb and delay.
Finally I added a Novation Peak for the polyphonic stuff.

This was all bought during 2,5 years or so.

Here you can see me use it all.

Ah nice!
For working in the DAW I usually use Reason. Just upgraded to 12
And when recording the band, I use Reaper. Nothing beats that in terms of lightweight multitracking software.

I think all DAWS have their pros and cons.
Reaper is very cheap and lightweight (runs on super cheap laptops)
Reason is by far the most inspiring as it resembles a 'real' studio environment with cables, knobs, buttons etc.
But Logic, Cubase, Studio One, Bitwig, FL studio and Ableton Live are all great DAWs too.
I just happen to need a cheap / lightweight one (Reaper) and I have been using Reason for 20 years now, so I'm very used to that one.

That would require me to get a MacBook Pro too.
And that gets really expensive really quickly.
Especially since I want to have at least 1TB HD and 16Gb mem.
Man, they charge premium prices for those things.

I have the pocket 2 and want to sell it to get the OM6. To be honest, i have the iphone 13 pro max and i think its just the better device. The pocket 2 has only one wide angle lens which is not so nice and i dont like the small screen and the solution with the smartphone as a larger screen. I also dont like the idea that the videos are stored in the DJI App as well. The Om6 with the Iphone 13 pro max will be much better for my needs. I do alot of amazon reviews and i have the Sony ZV1 and the Fuji XT-30ii as well for video, i also have the DJI Gimbal RSC2. But the pocket though, i never got warm with the product and its video quality. Its probably good for filming yourself when walking but i never do that.

Everyone to its taste right?
I did not like having to put my phone on the OM, especially since I use the gimbal for long timelapses a lot. And I really disliked connecting the phone to my PC, where all the files were numbered strangely in the browser, or I had to use filesharing via iTunes. Apple + Windows is not a good match.

But I never use my phone with the pocket 2. It is all about size and being able to just gab it out of my pocket (pun intended)
I understand it is not the best camera, but if I want my best camera, I just grab my D750 and make footage with that. And I still get pretty decent footage out of it.

I know, not the best, but good enough for this type of shooting.
