OSMO Mobile 2 Stories February 6

If you’ve got any recent flagship smartphone, you’ve got a great camera – both for still photos and for video. So good, in fact, that many independent filmmakers use the iPhone in particular to shoot both shorts and full-length movies.

But such reports can give a somewhat misleading impression. Very often, the smartphone is the capture device, but it’s coupled to far more expensive supplementary kit like professional lenses, and gimbals to smooth footage.

What DJI has done with its latest gimbal, the Osmo Mobile 2, is to bring smooth mobile shooting – and more – down to a price level that makes it extremely affordable.

It does feel slightly more plasticky than its predecessor, the Osmo Mobile 1 as DJI decided to only use high-strength modified nylon for the housing this time. But the pricing is so much better at $129 (the Osmo 1 originally retailed for $299, but can be bought for less now), that the material choice is easily forgiven. Another major difference is the battery. Instead of a hot-swappable battery, the Osmo Mobile 2 has an integrated battery that provides an astonishing 15 hours of stabilized footage, which is three times longer than the outgoing model. The new Osmo can also charge your smartphone while filming.
