A Closer Look At The DJI Osmo Mobile 2
You may remember this one, we’ve talked about it before. Well, there is now more to talk about, such as the £129 price tag; sure, the feature list is long, but I guess that’s the first thing that comes to mind whenever we think about acquiring new devices. Am I right?
Speaking of features, here they are – 3-axis gimbal, landscape or portrait orientation, Bluetooth and app controls and 15 long hours of operation. The Osmo Mobile 2 is the second smartphone gimbal from DJI, aiming at taking your smartphone video to the next level. Overall, it all looks familiar, but it seems that the DJI Osmo Mobile 2 was made from high-strength modified nylon, a.k.a. it’s lighter than before. Also noteworthy, DJI has also contoured the grip for a more ergonomic feel, something to be expected from a gadget that keeps going for as long as 15 hours.
One of the biggest changes with the Osmo Mobile 2 is the ability to orient your smartphone in portrait mode.; however, you will have to unlock the smartphone clamp and physically rotate it to do so. The other change is that the Osmo Mobile 2’s battery is now fixed, rather than user-replaceable, but with that kind of battery life this will not become an issue any time soon.
The DJI Osmo Mobile 2 is the gimbal to buy. DJI has made the best smartphone gimbal currently available; it’s lightweight and comfortable to use. The Osmo Mobile 2 does a great job of smoothing out your shots, although image quality itself will depend on your smartphone. Controlling the Osmo Mobile 2 takes a little practice, but I guess that’s part of the experience. However, the gimbal is compatible with the more professional video-capture FiLMiC Pro app. What about it?
