Chinese tech firm DJI has introduced in the country the new Osmo Mobile 2, the handheld smartphone camera stabilizer it unveiled at CES 2018.
The Osmo Mobile 2 uses a lightweight design that supports portrait orientation, with simpler controls with cinematic zoom, a longer battery life for more filming, and intelligent features.
DJI?s industry-leading three-axis gimbal technology cancels out movement in three directions so the video stays steady even if your hands shake or wobble. Its built-in SmoothTrack technology detects and compensates for your movement of the camera to ensure a smooth cinematic shot every time.
Designed to be lightweight and portable, Osmo Mobile 2 is made from high-strength modified nylon and features a folding design that makes it perfect for all-day use. The two-way mobile clamp lets you easily pivot between landscape and portrait orientation so that you can chose the most engaging full-screen format for your audience.
In addition, a 1/4? universal screw mount ensures compatibility with your favorite photography accessories, making Osmo Mobile 2 more versatile than ever. A new zoom slider lets you completely operate your smartphone camera from the handle and you can even produce dolly zoom, a visual effect usually created only on professional film sets.
A more powerful built-in battery system lets you film for up to 15 hours, over three times longer than the original Osmo Mobile?s battery. The new USB port enables phone charging during use and serves as a power bank for charging other electronics while on the go.
Smart software in the DJI GO mobile app unlocks intelligent photo and video features that help you create professional-looking content automatically.
Videographers can use modes including ActiveTrack to automatically follow of subjects in motion, Motion Timelapse with up to five different camera positions, Hyperlapse to create dramatic time-lapse videos with the camera in motion, or stream live to popular social platforms like Facebook and YouTube.
Osmo Mobile 2 retails at P7,900 and is locally distributed by MSI-ECS.
