So i have the DJI Osmo mobile, and i was wondering if i could use the z axis. The bottom part looks simillar to the Osmo and Osmo+, so mabye it could work? It would be awesome to have such a soft looking video from an Osmo mobile

No, you can’t.

The Z Axis fits between the gimbal and the Osmo handle.  The gimbal attaches to one end, and the Osmo handle attaches to the other.

The gimbal on the Osmo Mobile is non detachable so you cannot use the Z Axis.

If you REALLY want a Z Axis with an Osmo Mobile than your only option is to get an M1 Gimbal and an Osmo Handle, it will function just like an Osmo Mobile, but the gimbal will be detachable.  HOWEVER, you must install the Osmo Mobile firmware on the Osmo handle, which means that you will not be able to use any of the other Osmo gimbals unless you replace the firmware again.  It is not a swap out gimbal like DJI leads you to believe.  The cost of this option though may be prohibitive if you do not already own an Osmo handle.

Your best option with the regular Osmo Mobile is to “ninja walk.”  You May also be able to reduce the motion somewhat by attaching a string to the Osmo Mobiles handle attached to a weight.  There really is no great solution.  The Osmo Mobile is targeted mostly at the consumer market, all it does is make your cell phone videos look MUCH nicer than they did before, it is not a replacement for prosumer or professional equipment though, if you really want that kind of footage the Osmo Mobile is probably not a great choice for you.  You may want to consider a regular Osmo or Osmo+, or an Osmo Pro, or Osmo Pro RAW if you really want to go all out.  Those options are considerably more expensive though and you will lose active track, and possibly motion timelapse (unless you get the Osmo+, that still has motion timelapse).  But you can use the Z Axis and have a MUCH better camera, and, in the case of the Osmo+, optical zoom, and, in the case of the Osmo Pro and Osmo Pro RAW, interchangeable lenses and manual focus.
