You can now pre-order DJI’s Osmo Mobile 2 from Apple

Stabilize those vlog vids!

Drone-maker DJI’s recently-announced Osmo Mobile 2 smartphone gimbal was officially made available for preorder exclusively on Apple’s website today. The gimbal is priced at $ 129.95 and, according to the site, will ship sometime between February 21 and March 8.

The Osmo Mobile 2 was initially introduced during CES 2018 in Las Vegas. At its core, it’s a smartphone stabilizer designed to allow users to capture smooth videos and panoramic shots without worrying about shakes and bumps. It uses three-axis gimbal technology to cancel out unwanted movement in three directions, meaning even the unsteadiest of hands won’t disturb recording. The device is also lightweight, ultraportable, and easy to set up and use no matter what your experience.

The Osmo Mobile 2 is completely adjustable, offering both portrait and landscape orientation so you can make sure your followers get the best view. It also boasts a universal screw mount (so it can be used with all your favorite film tools as well as your smartphone), simpler controls (that allow your mobile device to be completely controlled from the handle), and a power bank that lets you film up to 15 hours (complete with a USB port that enables phone charging during use).

If you’re looking to add the Osmo Mobile 2 to your must-have smartphone accessory collection, you can preorder it exclusively on Apple’s website for $ 129.95. After January ends, however, you will also be able to purchase it from authorized DJI retailers.

The Air will begin shipping on January 28 to consumers and features a more lightweight construction similar to the Spark and a 3-axis gimbal like the Mavic Pro.

DJI’s new Mavic Air might’ve finally convinced me to get a drone


I have a secret to confess: I don’t care all that much about drones. The tech behind them is cool and all, and I appreciate the beautiful images they help create, but I’ve never been particularly tempted to own one. Tech’s favorite flying toys just never really hit that sweet spot of price, practicality, and fun for me to ever seriously consider buying a drone. That’s why it’s notable that DJI’s Mavic Air is the first drone I might actually want to buy. At a glance, the Mavic Air seems to be compromise between the entry-level DJI Spark and the…

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.

Aside from the price, the biggest change here has to be in terms of battery.

DJI’s latest pair of drone goggles are designed for racing

Drone maker DJI has released a new version of its DJI Goggles for drone racers. They’re called the DJI Goggles RE, short for racing edition. The original DJI Goggles went up for presale this past April and, like those, the DJI Goggles RE look a bit like a VR headset and let you control a drone with just your head movements and see from the device’s point of view, so long as the goggles are in head-tracking gimbal mode. While the original goggles are white, these come in matte black with red leather on the headband.

These new goggles are also compatible with non-DJI branded drones and third-party flight controllers like the F3 and Naze. The DJI Goggles RE support Sphere panoramic viewing and video streaming with the OcuSync Video…

Tracking rogue drones with DJI’s new Aeroscope system

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.) In my lap I held a fourty-pound Pelican case, the latest creation from Chinese drone-maker DJI. Two wand-sized antennae stuck out of the top lid of the case; inside was a touchscreen display, running mapping software.

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…
