CES 2018: DJI Osmo Mobile 2 Promises Stabilised Videos At Only RM520

If you are into movie making or are a photography/videography enthusiast, then chances are you have most probably heard of Osmo. But photographers are also using their professional-grade stabilizing gimbals for serious videography and mobile photography.

The Osmo Mobile 2 is a follow-up to the company's popular handheld gimbal for smartphones.

Along with an update to its line of Ronin stabilizers for professional cinematographers, DJI has released a follow up to last year's Osmo Mobile stabilizer, bringing more flexibility to smartphone shooters along with more intuitive controls. It has a clip to hold your phone, and a three-axis brushless gimbal to keep video silky smooth, even beyond what optical stabilization in modern smartphones can provide.

The Osmo Mobile 2 has a lightweight design, a built-in three-axis gimbal and supports pivoting between landscape and portrait orientation (by the two-way mobile clamp).

The DJI Osmo companion app has also undergone metamorphosis. Hyperlapse blends timelapses with camera motion, and there are Panorama, Long Exposure, and LightTrail modes. But of course, the exclusivity will end in February, and you can go ahead and grab the accessory straight from your favorite vendor or straight from DJI if you so wish. Whereas the original Osmo Mobile offered between 3 and 4.5 hours of shooting time out of its removable 980mAh battery, DJI opted for an internal 2600mAh unit this time around with a whopping 15 hours of battery life.

Meet the Ronin-S, DJI's first single-handed stabilizer designed for DSLRs and mirrorless camera systems, and it'll come in to sizes depending on what type of camera you want to mount.

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 you adjust the pan and tilt axis by hand while the Ronin-S is powered on and axis locks speed up the setup process so you can spend more time filming and less time prepping your gear. DJI will also offer a dual-handle support.

It features a simple, ergonomic curved design and dedicated controls (buttons and a joystick) for controlling camera settings and positioning.

The DJI Ronin-S isn't available for purchase yet, but there is a sign up to be notified form on their website, so you can be notified when it becomes available. The DJI Osmo Mobile helped solve that problem, enabling users to get incredibly smooth video out of their phones' cameras, but it was pretty pricey at $299.
