With the Consumer Electronics Show taking place in the coming week, DJI has announced the two new products they plan to feature in their booth.
As a top company in creative camera technology, DJI’s new handheld camera stabilizers come with exciting updated features meant to make your camera shooting experience—whether it be with a smartphone, DSLR, or mirrorless camera—seamless and easy.
On the new products, Senior Product Manager at DJI Paul Pan says, “With the introduction of these two stabilizers, DJI now offers gimbal technology to help unlock the creative storyteller in everyone no matter what camera they’re using.”
The first product to launch in the coming month is the Osmo Mobile 2.
This handheld smartphone camera stabilizer is an upgrade from the original Osmo mobile, with a new lightweight design. Its features will include:
- Three-axis gimbal technology which will cancel out movement in three directions, so that your footage will remain steady even if your hand is shaking. In addition, Smooth track technology can detect and compensate for your movement, keeping everything looking neat and smooth.
- A lightweight, sleek design made from high-stretch modified nylon.
- A two way mobile clamp that lets you switch back and forth from portrait and landscape orientation easily and quickly.
- Simpler controls that let you use your phone camera like a professional camera using integrated settings for ISO, shutter speed, etc.
- A more powerful built in battery, over 3x more powerful than the original Osmo Mobile, that lets you shoot for up to 15 hours. Also, a USB port that will enable you to charge your phone during use.
The second product DJI has introduced is the Ronin-S.
This is DJI’s first single-handed stabilizer for DSLRs and Mirrorless Cameras, with an efficient setup for comfort and ease. Its features will include:
- Availability in 2 frame sizes for either camera type.
- High-torque motors that will support the most popular camera and lens combinations including Canon 5D, Panasonic GH, and Sony Alpha systems.
- Stabilization systems that will compensate for a zoom lens with higher magnification ratios and an external zooming barrel.
- A new Push mode that lets you adjust the pan and axis tilt by hand.
- Controlled buttons that let you transition between smooth track records, record and stop the camera, and change camera position easily.
- Sports mode that allows for fast movement.
The Osmo Mobile 2 is set to be priced at $129 USD and will be available on apple.com starting January 23rd. In early February it will be available at store.dji.com, at DJI Flagship stores, and DJI authorized retailers.
The Ronin-2 will be available in the second quarter of 2018 on dji.com, DJI Flagship stores, DJI authorized retail stores, and DJI resellers worldwide. The pricing will be announced closer to its availability.
You can see the new Osmo Mobile 2 and Ronin-S can be seen at the DJI booth at CES, where you can experience the entire DJI product portfolio, including camera drones and image stabilization systems. Their main booth is located in the Las Vegas Convention Center South Hall, Level 2, booth #26002.
