DJI’s new Osmo Mobile 2 offers 15 hours of shooting time for $129, less than half its predecessor’s price

Nobody wants to watch shakycam footage, but it’s not practical to bring a dedicated video camera rig everywhere. The DJI Osmo Mobile helped solve that problem, enabling users to get incredibly smooth video out of their phones’ cameras, but it was pretty pricey at $ 299. The Osmo Mobile 2 fixes that issue and several other ones, with vastly improved battery life, support for portrait video, and more.

I wasn’t expecting that we’d spot any drones when I joined Nick Martino, an airport operations supervisor, on his daily patrol around Camarillo airport. We climbed into a white Chevy Tahoe, its sides emblazoned with a blue “7,” and Martino used a two-way radio to clear the runway of any aircraft nearby. (The Tahoe was big, but an aircraft would win.)

Martino calls this box “the Gizmos,” but its real name is Aeroscope. It’s DJI’s new solution for detecting rogue drones that are flying nearby. Martino and his team at the…
