It doesn’t matter if we have somehow managed to miss the DJI OSMO Mobile handheld smartphone gimbal because, it already has a successor called, well, DJI OSMO Mobile 2. DJI OSMO Mobile 2 is a handheld smartphone gimbal for the mobile phone cinematographer in you to unleash your mobile videography creativity. Think of it as a glorified selfie stick that somehow lack of the length. Just kidding. It is actually a relevant tool for content creators like vloggers.
In fact, I’d say it is a must-have accessory if you do not want your audience to thrown up watching your videos. If you know what I mean. This clever accessory is packed with sensors and brushless motors to enable features like ActiveTrack, Motionlapse, as well as Zoom Control, letting you create the story the way you want it to be. With DJI OSMO Mobile 2, you can create smooth time-lapse, hyper-lapse, slow-mo and more, and doing so for up to 15 hours while keeping your smartphone charge too.
Not going to lie. I am kind of sold by the idea… I was even more sold when I knew it is going for quite an affordable sticker of $139. In case you are thinking of buying the first generation OSMO Mobile, you ought know that DJI no longer sells it. So, if you need a capable handheld gimbal for smartphone, this would be it. You can see OSMO Mobile 2 in action in the video below.
