At the CES 2018 technology show taking place in Las Vegas this week, drone-maker and camera accessory manufacturer DJI has unveiled two new handheld smartphone stabiliser devices, which build on the technology incorporated into the original but now provide simpler controls and improved battery life. The handheld stabilisers take the form of the Osmo Mobile 2 designed for smartphones and the Ronin-S designed for larger DSLR cameras.
The Ronin-S has been specially created to accommodate larger DSLR and mirrorless cameras, and combines advanced stabilisation with precision control as well as enabling users to manually focus while enjoying a single-handed, compact design.
The Osmo Mobile 2 builds on the functionality of the first Osmo and now allows users to position their smartphone in portrait orientation which was not possible with the first. The lightweight design incorporates intelligent functions that can actively track, provide zoom control and offer motion lapse features. Other modes include slow-mo, hyper-lapse and time-lapse if required. Simply select your subject and the ActiveTrack future will follow using the built-in sensors and brushless motors to provide smooth, professional footage whenever needed.
The included battery is capable of providing up to 15 hours of use on a single charge, and the Osmo Mobile 2 handheld smartphone stabiliser weighs just 485 g.
