The New Osmo

Premier Magazine (South AFrica) - - Tech -

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.
