Conclusion

In my opinion this Gimbal is made of very good quality plastic and the reason DJI made it out of plastic is the save on the cost so people can afford to own one.

  1. Thank you a lot for this very helpful article Samuel! We all know how fast is Youtube growing and it will only keep raising in popularity. I think that Gimbal will serve me well as I think that I will start with streaming videos for my niche website. I will also recommend this product to my cousin who is professional photo editor.

  2. I was looking for one these for a really long time now. Me and my friends go out a lot especially we ride bikes a lot in summer. We go for a long ride in the country side and I really needed these ones to capture our route . It’s just something I like to do. I really like the product that is listed in this article. I’m going to try this out for sure. Thank you so much.

  3. Hello,

    Great article! It is right on time! I am currently involved with trying to get quality footage for YouTube video, with my friend who is hosting and narrating on different sports activities. Many of the shoots will be done at the various sports events and in actual motion with the various teams. The Gimbal is the missing piece of equipment that’s needed to help us create great camera footage. After checking out the videos on Gimbal model DJI OSMO Mobile 2, and seeing all the great things it could do, I was excited. Being amateur-ish in the filming arena already, the DJI OSMO Mobile 2 brings my filming efforts up to a whole new level. Got to get it!

    Thanks for bringing the GIMBAL model DJI OSMO Mobile 2 to the forefront!

  4. Great review and information on making sports videos for amateurs.

    I usually use the smartphone and too have to cope with shaking pictures. I then bought a tripod and had a great improvement.

    Now I look at this GIMBAL assortment and think this might be a good update to my set. It’s really hard and inconvenient to control the I Phone while filming.

    Thanks for the information and valuable tip.

  5. My friend is planning on some outdoor photography activity in the next couple of months (entering 2019 to be exact) where there will be some motor racing shows and also a hot air balloon event that will be happening in town. We were hunting for some gadgets to go along when I came across this post. It’s interesting to learn about the different accessories that we can mount our cameras and I think having a gimbal is worth the investment. 

  6. Very Interesting! I love filming sports I do. Good footage is gold to me. I do lots of deep sea fishing, skateboarding, snowboarding, surfing…. I’ve always used my go-pro, but this is a pretty interesting alternative. There seems to be a convenience factor about something like this. I think that anyone who’s big (or even small) into photography and sport film should take a look at this! Thanks for posting the good content 

  7. In a single sentence, I LOVE THIS THING CALLED DJI OSMO MOBILE 2!

    I took almost 60 GB of 4K video and did multiple live streams from Disneyland using this thing. It is easy to use and the battery life lasted longer than I had hoped for. I made it nearly a full day without charging, but was expecting to get maybe two full days of intermittent theme park use out of it given the review claims. The battery on my phone had to be charged 4 times in the time that it took to drain one battery on the Osmo Mobile 2.If I had to point out a flaw, it is in the design of the clamp and the way it balances with my Samsung Galaxy S9. 

    I could not push my phone all the way against the stopper plate and get it to balance, even when adjusting the sliders. I had to leave 1/2″ or so gap, which wasn’t enough to make it feel loose, but it still wasn’t quite firmly seated. I’d still recommend it.

    Thanks for sharing this informational article and in-depth review.
