The New Osmo
DJI helped popularise smartphone stabilization with the original Osmo and Osmo Mobile. At CES 2018, it launched the much cheaper Osmo Mobile 2, which is now built from high-strength nylon instead of metal. You cannot hot-swap the battery on the Mobile 2 as you could with the original, but there is less need, as the built-in battery can last three times longer – up to 15 hours. Here, the controls are pretty basic, though you might argue that this makes it easier to learn and operate. You can also quickly re-centre it by double-tapping the mode button, an operation that is harder to do on other devices. It is easy and quick to switch to the front camera button, making vlogging a relative snap. It is better than the original in every way, and also cheaper.
