    Awesome Addition To My DJI Line

    • Written by Ramiro Alex C from Menifee

    Very easy to use right out of the box. If you aren’t familiar with DJI products, YouTube it. Haha I think that’s why all these beginners are writing bad reviews. Purchased it so I can store it on the motorcycle. Great addition as I own a Ronin M & S. Highly recommend. A lot of people complain about the low battery out of the box but it didn’t affect anything. Highly recommend.

    Don’t let the bad reviews fool you

    • Written by Deven W from Louisburg

    Let me cut to the chase: If you have an iPhone 7 or later, your phone has optical image stabilization. This cannot be turned off, as it is embedded in the hardware. This will result in “jittering” when you are shooting running footage. This isn’t DJI’s fault, and probably not even Apple’s. The jittering isn’t near as bad as without the gimbal, but it is annoying. This can be fixed by some post processing but for me, when shooting walking footage or using the modes that come in the app, ( I’ll talk about those in a second ) I noticed almost no jittering.

    Don’t let all the bad reviews fool you, this is a GREAT product! Just be sure to charge the gimbal for a couple hours when you first get it, and then hold the power button until it turns on. I use this as a tripod, and it produces buttery smooth pans. I also tried the included modes in the app, and they are awesome! The hyper lapse feature is amazing. These allow you to produce cinema grade footage very easily. All in all, the jittering is a very small problem, overshadowed by all of the positives, so trust me when I say GET IT!

    I see reviews for dead on arrival units, and I think this is why

    • Written by Scott D from Powell

    So I was concerned about the dead on arrival units, or people saying it died w days later. After buying one I now know you can turn the gimbal on and it will not power up the motors until you sign into the DJI GO app. So it looks like it’s dead if you just go for a third parts app like Flimic Pro, but once you create an account with DJI if your didnt have one, and sign into the DJI GO app it will not initialize all the way and the motors will not come on.

    As for the gimbal, it’s lighter then the competition Smooth 4, feels more natural to hold and not as top heavy then the smooth 4, and the tracking works 100% better then the smooth. Firmware update is done with the iOS app over Bluetooth.The zoom is smooth, but the the moving of the gimbal position with the joystick is slow. The osmo 2 has a normal USB A port for charging other devices I like the smooth 4 using a micro USB port and I can find a Micro USB to lighting cable. Charging the osmo is only 2 hours and uses a more common found micro USB and chargers at 2 amps, or 10 Watts just like the smooth 4. So the USB Smooth 4 charging has not advantage for faster charging speeds, just another cable you will have to carry. The osmo is smaller then the smooth 4. And the Osmo 2 is supported by filmic pro using the zoom button for more advanced features without the need to touch the phone and will give you 4K 24, 30, and 60 FPS, but you have to initialize the osmo first with the DJI GO app and update the firmware before using filmic pro.

    Now on the smooth 4 side, the Smooth has more range, seems to have stronger motors able to do faster transitions, a more refined app for iOS with 4K 24, 30, and 60 FPS. But the firmware is done over a computer. But the firmware update on the computer also allows for fine tuning calibration of then levels and the iOS app allows for the speed adjustment of how fast the motors work. If holding the gimbal upside down, or flashlight straight out then the smooth 4 wins in this range much better. The smooth 4 is not officially supported by filmic pro, but will still work you just have to tap the screen for some of the settings and adjustments. With the iPhone X and the Apple leather case the Smokth fits better without hindering the range of the motors, I had to remove the case to speed up the osmo 2 a little and for the phone to fit better. The smooth 4 seems easier and faster to adjust and control once you get used to the Phone Go mode and back triggers.

    In the end, they both do good stabilization, neither will let you charge the phone at the same time while using it. And both work well as a gimbal by its self. It comes down to the little features, if your a one man camera youtubenchannle then tracking is a needed thing the osmo 2 will do this better. If your looking for a mkre Manual mode without having to tap on the screen the smooth 4 is better. I think the smooth 4 works better for beingna faster and easier adjusting gimbal once you get used to the trigger controlling. So it all comes down to what your needs are. If your space is limited in your camera bag the osmo might be better and lighter also will still get the job done just with slower fine tuning using the joystick. If you want to record a one shoot video with no breaks that will need to be edited post the the smooth 4 might be better for you.

    Both are good gimbals for the intended purpose of a 3 axis gimbal, but both are very different in what they have to offer and how they function.
    I hope this helps,
    Scott

    Solid Product that's easy to use out of the box!

    • Written by Mike W from London

    Having had several DJI products I can say that this one is the most cost effective and it achieves the results you are doing for. It does take a shoot or two to understand how to not over extend the gimble. (which results in a jitter effect). Once you master that, you're in good shape. Great for time lapse, hyper lapse (my fav) and moving time lapse. Great B-roll for cut aways.

    Solid product that makes a necessary shots for higher production value easy and affordable. People can't believe I'm using my phone and I can't believe it costs this little. You get way more than you pay for here.

    Note: I also have the much more expensive OSMO Raw and this is very close in comparison. Just saying.

    Osmo Mobile 1 convert.

    • Written by joseph L from Farmingville

    I have been an owner of the Osmo Mobile 1 for a while. I speak fluent Osmo, I know its limitations and when and where to use it. I tried out the Osmo Mobile 2 mostly because of battery life, the controls changed slightly, it has the same controls but there are less buttons so the M button replaced the trigger, for the better, they added a zoom switch (used to need to hold trigger and use joystick for the same feature) the Osmo 2 is better in every way. If you are wondering, just buy it and enjoy. it is a precise instrument and needs to be treated and calibrated as such. as long as you understand that you will like the Osmo Mobile 2.

    Excellent

    • Written by Brian W from South Pasadena

    Such an improvement over the original. For anyone complaining about the lack of features in the DJI app, I would suggest using a third party app, especially Filmic Pro, which will shoot 4k, log, and it has built-in support for the Osmo, it allows you to use all the physical controls of the Osmo.

    Quite happy with this.

    • Written by Charles B from CHELMSFORD

    I spent some time trying to stabilize the phone but soon realized I wasn't following the online tutorial. Once I got it stabilized and watched a few DJI videos I was off and running. I have an iPhone X with a case. I use a bluetooth lav mic for audio which works perfectly. I like the follow feature. I set it on a tripod and it will follow me perfectly around the room while I'm shooting video for youtube. Quite happy with it as it does everything it is supposed to do.

    Shipping Times for this Product are a Lie!!

    • Written by Christopher W from ANCHORAGE

    I ordered this product on the 31st of January with the EXPECTED shipping date of March 2-16th...and LOW AND BEHOLD...I got a Shipping notification stating that this device was being shipped in FEB...a Month EARLIER...believe me this was the BEST NEWS I had that week!!. I got This on the 9th of Feb and although I haven't used it YET....I've read as MUCH as I can about the Osmo and the different shooting modes and how this can help those looking to up their games in youtube or even just starting to get into Youtubing. Although I'll have to admit there IS a difference between the Osmo Base and the Osmo Base 2. BUT...if you're looking to get the Base it's out of stock...and you'll need a Reminder too know when they are available. It being $10 for this makes it a WELL worth Buy. I'm looking for to MANY MANY Years of Video's and Pictures.

    Pretty neat piece of tech

    • Written by Kindra R from Newport News

    I received my dji osmo mobile 2 today and I’m thoroughly impressed. In the hand it feels well built, it’s super quiet, and is balanced nicely. The quick start guide it comes with is useless. If you didn’t use the first osmo mobile, ignore this guide. Go to the dji website and download the full manual. The balance instructions are confusing at best for a new user, and have a few typos. The box comes with a cheapest (but effective) case, the guide, the gimbal and a charger (just the cord, no power brick)

    In terms of functionality, this thing is great. I experienced no hiccups connecting to the app (took about 4 seconds) and I was off to the races. There’s a few different gimbal modes. One will pan if you turn the handle, the other stays still no matter if you turn the handle or not. Active track worked great in my brief test, it tracked my pets in a variety of positions, and tracked me even if I turned around and such. All the buttons are in ergonomically pleasing spots. The indicator lights are annoying but only because the guide it comes with doesn’t explain what any of the colors mean and I had to get on the dji website for info.

    If I could change one thing, it would be to have more info on setup and use included with the gimbal itself, but that’s a minor complaint. All in all, a neat piece of equipment! Oh, and be sure to check online for adapters to hook popular action cams (you know which one I mean) to this so it can stabilize that footage as well (obviously no app support for that, but it’s pretty effective)
