We've gone hands-on to check out the DJI OSMO Mobile 2, testing to see just how smooth this latest hand-held gimbal device is!  Designed for those who want to create great looking videos, while on the move.

When you switch the device on for the first time, it immediately springs to life - adjusting and balancing your mounted smartphone so you to start recording right away. On the bottom is a stock standard 1/4-inch thread so we can easily connect the new OSMO Mobile 2 to a camera tripod if we want to and DJI have a range of accessory options like the extension rod which just makes this one even better.

On the controller unit you'll find a series of quick controls too, allowing you to start/stop recording video, take photos, and also a little joystick with which you can make smooth movements manually, these controls combine with more through the DJI Go App which allows for additional features and quick editing to be done with ease!

Comparing to the previous generation the Osmo II has greatly enhanced battery life now and you can use it for around 15 hours on a single charge, you can also share a portion of this built-in battery with your phone via a handy USB charging cable! The mount is now very easy to use with spring-loaded adjustments allowing for a very large smartphone to be fitted easily. When not in use you can store the device in the included carry case too.
