New DJI Osmo Mobile Smartphone Stabilizer Launched - Way Cheaper than the Original

New DJI Osmo Mobile Smartphone Stabilizer Launched - Way Cheaper than the Original

Built for smartphones, DSLRs, and mirrorless camera systems, they aim to give consumers, professional videographers and photographers new tools to capture smooth, steady videos and photos wherever they go.

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. From February, the DJI Osmo Mobile 2 will become available directly from DJI and authorised resellers. The Osmo Mobile 2 not only makes it possible to record smooth handheld video with a phone, it supports landscape orientation (for traditional capture) and portrait, the format used by Snapchat and Instagram Stories. 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. Using the DJI GoApp, you can shoot panorama, timelapse, motionlapse, hyperlapse, and slow-mo videos. The original Osmo Mobile was good for just under five hours of use per charge-the Mobile 2 can go for 15 hours. Like its predecessor, the Osmo Mobile 2 uses a three-axis gimbal with SmoothTrack technology to detect and compensate for your movement of the camera. Like the Osmo Mobile 2, this gimbal will help you shoot shake-free video with a cinematic and professional look - except you'll be attaching much bigger cameras to it. DJI says they're up to the job of stabilizing even larger cameras like the Canon 5D, in addition to Panasonic's GH series and Sony's Alpha models, and even if they've got lengthy zooms.

The Ronin S is DJI's completely new 3-axis stabilizer for both mirrorless and D-SLR cameras available in two sizes for either camera system. The curved design is meant to leave access to the preview screen even while shooting at angles, and the battery can be hot-swapped. DJI also showed us an early preview of an upcoming Focus Control Center consisting of a focusing dial and a screen, allowing users to really control their entire camera while its mounted on this support system. A dual-handle support will also be available for when an added level of comfort and stability is required. The pre-orders for the DJI Osmo Mobile 2 start from January 23rd, and that will be Apple-exclusive initially.

The DJI Ronin-S release date will be available in the next few months through DJI's online store as well as it retail partners (i.e. Amazon and the Apple Store).
