Need to keep your camera steady and eliminate those jerky movements? Yes, shaky videos are so last year.

The DJI Oslo Mobile 3 is an efficient smartphone stabiliser that is lightweight and highly customisable. Simply move it through 90 degrees for seamless switching between landscape and portrait and use its app to connect your phone to the Osmo via Bluetooth — and you’re sorted.
