DJI has announced the new DJI Osmo Mobile Silver – price tag £319 / €339 – which turns a smartphone into a smart motion camera.

Announced at CES in Las Vegas, the new DJI Osmo Mobile Silver shares the same build and design as the rest of the DJI Osmo family and relies on the DJI GO app to allow users to track a subject automatically, create motion timelapses, long exposures, 9-shot panoramas or livestream their video to social media.

DJI also launched the new Zenmuse M1 gimbal as an add-on accessory to the Osmo Mobile Silver.
