DJI is aiming straight at the mobile & DSLR/mirrorless market with two new single-handed stabilizers. Meet Osmo Mobile 2 and Ronin-S, both of which have been unveiled at CES 2018 in Las Vegas today.
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). DJI’s SmoothTrack technology detects how you are moving the camera and compensates, so it becomes a smoother, more “cinematic” shot. On top of that, user experience has been improved and all the controls where simplified, DJI claims it’s now more similar to operating “a professional camera”.

According to DJI, one of the main advantages is the battery life that goes up to 15 hours, since the Osmo Mobile 2 is equipped with more powerful built-in battery system. That is a significant achievement comparing to 5 hours in the original Osmo Mobile’s battery.
The product has also some cool capabilities shooting various styles like panoramic, time-lapse, motionlapse, hyperlapse, slow-mo and Zoom Control, which is pretty neat. Zoom Control is a built-in zoom slider that lets you completely operate your smartphone camera from the handle with more fluid, cinematic zoom.
