Pairing the Gimbal to Your iPhone

If you have a new gimbal or device, the first step is to pair the Osmo Mobile with your iPhone. This tutorial video from DJI outlines the process:

Connecting the Gimbal to Switcher Studio

To connect the DJI Osmo Mobile, please follow the steps below, on the iPhone you will be using with the gimbal.

Step 1: Confirm Bluetooth is enabled.

  • Go to the iPhone's Control Center and make sure the Bluetooth logo is highlighted blue.

  • If it is not blue, tap the icon to enable Bluetooth.

Step 2: Turn on the Osmo Mobile.

  • Ensure the iPhone is secure in the gimbal.

  • Turn on the gimbal.

  • The gimbal will straighten out, indicating that it is ready to use.

Step 3: Launch the DJI App on the iPhone.

  • Tap the DJI App to launch it.
    • Note: If you are using a DJI OM4 gimbal, use the DJI MIMO app instead.
  • Wait for the DJI app / DJI MIMO app to connect to the camera.

Step 4: Launch Switcher Studio on the iPhone.

  • Tap the phone's Home button to go to the main screen.

  • Launch the Switcher Studio app.

Note: We recommend leaving the DJI App open in the background.

Step 5: Enable the Osmo Mobile connection in Switcher Studio.

  • Tap Share Camera or Screen.
  • Tap Share Camera.
  • Tap the ellipsis in the top-right corner.
  • Tap DJI Osmo Mobile.
  • Wait a few seconds, and your DJI Osmo Mobile will show up in the list.

  • Tap the gimbal you want to connect.

  • A blue checkmark will appear to the left of the gimbal you selected, confirming it has been connected.

You are now ready to use your DJI Osmo Mobile with Switcher Studio.

Connect the camera to your main switching device as you normally would. Now, when you move that source to the Preview window inside of Switcher Studio, you can remotely Pan and Tilt using the DJI Osmo Mobile.

Troubleshooting DJI & Switcher Issues

If you have followed the above steps and are still having issues connecting, please completely disconnect the device as follows:

  1. Go to the Settings app on the iPhone.

  2. Tap Bluetooth.

  3. Tap Forget All Devices. If that is not an option, tap the "i" icon for each listed gimbal, and tap Forget This Device for each one.

Make sure you re-register your device by using the DJI app first. After setup, make sure to ignore Appleā€™s pop-up to connect the device and only pair via the Switcher menu (Sometimes Apple tries to pair the Osmo as a keyboard).
