Filmmakers know that getting stabilized footage isn’t easy. While action cameras allow extreme sports enthusiasts to capture the action from just about anywhere, without gimbal stabilization, the footage they produce is often shaky and can be difficult to watch. Additionally, to get slow-motion footage from an action camera, users need to transfer their shots to a computer and use post-production software to slow their high-FPS footage down.
Now, thanks to DJI’s Osmo series products, creators now have the power to capture stabilized shots on the fly. All Osmo series products include 3-axis gimbals that deliver silky-smooth footage slow-motion footage without any editing required. Also, since Osmo series products connect with the DJI GO app, you can edit and share your footage right from your mobile phone.
The Osmo+ and Osmo Pro/RAW come equipped with DJI X3 and X5 cameras, respectively, while the Osmo Mobile is smartphone-compatible gimbal that turns your smartphone into a smart motion camera.

In this article, we’ll show you how to capture slow-motion shots with an Osmo and DJI GO.
DJI GO App Settings
First, power on your Osmo, connect it to your mobile device and launch DJI GO. We recommend using a grid, specifically Grid + Diagonals, so you can keep your shot well-framed as you move.
Next, make sure to set your shooting mode to Slow Motion.
Finally, line up the object(s) you want to capture and start recording.
