The redesigned Osmo Mobile 3 lets you fold and go.

Motorized phone camera stabilizers are great for getting smooth and steady shots from your phone -- assuming you use it. For me, it's one of those products you buy with the best intentions and then don't use because it's simply too large, awkward and fragile to bring with you all the time. DJI's Osmo Mobile 3 tackles this with a unique folding design that makes it more compact and easier to toss in a bag and go. And it's $10 less than its predecessor.

Today - Gimbal - Unlocks - Folds - Locks

Available today for $119, the redesigned gimbal unlocks and folds fast and has locks to keep it from swiveling around. You can even throw it into a standby mode so you can partially shut it down, fold it and move to a new location and then quickly unfold and immediately start shooting. The whole device is lighter and more compact than previous models, but still runs for up to 15 hours on a single charge.

The new design also addresses a few issues users had with the Osmo Mobile 2. The gimbal no longer blocks the ports on your phone so you can connect an external mic and charge your device off the Osmo's battery. You also no longer need to manually rotate your phone from landscape to portrait as it can now do it with a button press and position the camera right-side up.
