Can I detach and reattach the Magnetic Phone Clamp to my smartphone?
Yes.
What is the magnetic force of Osmo Mobile 6?
The magnetic force of Osmo Mobile 6 is 47.5 Newtons (approximately the force needed to hold two 2-liter soda bottles), more than enough strength to keep smartphones attached securely.
Will Osmo Mobile 6's magnetic force interfere with my smartphone or other objects?
Osmo Mobile 6 uses a special closed-loop magnetic design that does not affect the performance of the smartphone attached to it. However, some phones may require calibration after mounting due to the angle of the compass. Follow the instructions on the phone to calibrate and use normally.
The magnetic design may influence other magnetic products. Do not put Osmo Mobile 6 near a bank card, cardiac pacemaker, RAM chip, hard drive, or similar devices.
What should I do if the Magnetic Phone Clamp is not accurately mounted?
If the Magnetic Phone Clamp is not accurately mounted, the system indicator on the status panel will blink red.
Check if the dot on the back of the phone clamp is aligned with the dot on the roll axis motor of the gimbal. After attaching the smartphone to the gimbal, rotate the roll axis motor to ensure a firm connection between the two. The system status indicator will turn yellow or green when the two dots are aligned.
When my phone is mounted to Osmo Mobile 6 and is using a wide-angle camera, will the gimbal appear in the camera view? What should I do if it does?
Due to the layout of wide-angle lenses and/or irregular phone sizes (for example, those of Huawei P40 and Huawei Mate 20 Pro), some users may see the gimbal in their camera view when using a wide-angle camera.
You can try the following: Adjust the position of the Magnetic Phone Clamp by moving it away from the camera until the gimbal is not visible in the camera view (applicable to Huawei Mate 40 Pro+, Huawei Mate 40 Pro, Huawei P40, iPhone 11, iPhone 11 Pro, iPhone 12 Pro, Xiaomi 10 Pro, Vivo X70, Samsung S10+, and more).
