Say goodbye to shaky footage with DJI’s mobile camera mounts

DJI recently introduced two new handheld camera stabilizers, the Osmo Mobile 2 and Ronin-S. 

Built for smartphones, DSLRs, and mirrorless camera systems, they aim to give consumers, professional videographers and photographers new tools to capture smooth, steady videos and photos wherever they go.

DJI senior product manager 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.

“Osmo Mobile 2 offers the best in smartphone stabilization at an affordable price, and Ronin-S brings the quality of DJI’s professional gimbal technology to a new form factor that is perfect for run-and-gun filming using your favourite DSLR or mirrorless camera system.”

Osmo Mobile 2

Osmo Mobile 2 is a smartphone camera stabilizer that aims to capture smooth videos and high-definition panoramas with cinematic movement. 

DJI’s three-axis gimbal technology cancels out movement in three directions so the video stays steady even if the user's hands shake or wobble, while DJI’s built-in SmoothTrack technology detects and compensates for movement of the camera to ensure a smooth cinematic shot every time. 

Designed to be lightweight and portable, Osmo Mobile 2 is made from high-strength modified nylon and features a folding design. 

The two-way mobile clamp lets users easily pivot between landscape and portrait orientation so that they can choose the most engaging full-screen format for their audience. 

In addition, a universal screw mount ensures compatibility with a host of photography accessories. 

Ronin-S

Ronin-S is DJI’s first single-handed stabilizer for DSLR and mirrorless camera systems. 

Available in two frame sizes for either camera type, DJI’s powerful three-axis gimbal technology delivers smooth, shake-free video and crisp photos. 
High-torque motors support the camera and lens combinations including the Canon 5D, Panasonic GH and Sony Alpha systems. 

Its stabilization system compensates for zoom lenses with higher magnification ratios and an external zooming barrel, while its advanced stabilization algorithms work with both in-camera and in-lens optical stabilization technology. 

A new Push mode lets users adjust the pan and tilt axis by hand while the Ronin-S is powered on.

The Ronin-S also features DJI’s intelligent battery technology that can be hot-swapped during operation for extended shoots.

Both camera mounts will be released later this year.
