DJI unveils new Osmo Mobile 2 smartphone camera stabiliser at CES 2018

DJI unveils new Osmo Mobile 2 smartphone camera stabiliser at CES 2018

The DJI Osmo Mobile 2 price tag will be £139 and is available to pre-order exclusively from Apple.com on 23 January.

Ronin-S is DJI's first single-handed stabilizer for DSLR and mirrorless camera systems. That is a significant achievement comparing to 5 hours in the original Osmo Mobile's battery. Made from high-strength modified nylon, there's a two-way mobile clamp for landscape and portrait use, while the whole thing has a folding design for slotting it into a backpack more readily. Also new is a quarter-inch mount on the bottom of the Osmo for sticking it onto a tripod for more complex or prolonged shoots. Using the DJI GoApp, you can shoot panorama, timelapse, motionlapse, hyperlapse, and slow-mo videos. DJI has fixed the issues and the company promises 15 hours on a single charge and is also offering a way to charge your phone with the Osmo Mobile 2. These include settings for ISO, shutter speed and a zoom slider, which allows for a dolly zoom effect where the camera moves toward or away from a subject while the lens is pulled in the opposite direction. Speaking of the longer arm, it can now support smartphones in portrait mode for apps that only record/stream in that orientation.

DJI, the company best known for making drones, has taken the wraps off the new version of its handheld smartphone gimbal at CES 2018 - the Osmo Mobile 2.

Like the original, the Osmo Mobile 2 offers 3-axis stabilisation that has advanced tracking features with ActiveTrack.

Of course, since cameras are generally much bigger and heavier than smartphones, DJI had to make some changes.

According to DJI, the Ronin-S supports Canon 5D, Panasonic GH and Sony Alpha systems with a wide combinations of lenses.

A new Push mode lets users adjust the pan and tilt axis by hand while the Ronin-S is powered on.

The second iteration of DJI's handheld smartphone camera stabiliser boasts a redesign with simpler controls and a longer battery life.

Throw in the app, meanwhile, and you get the same Panorama, Hyperlapse, Track, and CamAnchor features as with the Osmo Mobile 2.

The gimbal's stabilization system is compatible with both in-camera and in-lens optical stabilization technology, and it compensates for zoom lenses with higher magnification ratios and an external zooming barrel. A dual-handle support will also be available for when an added level of comfort and stability is required. From early February the Osmo Mobile 2 will be available from DJI's web and flagship stores, as well as authorised retailers.
