Gimbal for mobile phone video

Anyone use one, comments, recommendations etc?

Thinking about this one: https://www.wexphotovideo.com/dji-osmo-mobile-2-1649875/

It's the cheapest I've seen and gets decent reviews for walking but no references to using it for skiing. I'd only use it on piste. Or is it completely naff?

Not too sure about the mobile version, but I've been using the self contained osmo for a couple of trips and the stabilisation is incredible. Whether it's naff or not is another question...

Here's some example footage of the osmo stabilisation I took this year, if it helps for comparison:

@element, Nice and smooth, what I'm looking for. But what is the self contained osmo? It has a Sony X3000 built in? Tried googling it but couldn't find it.

I’ve got a xhiyun smooth q which was about £80 and works well skiing. You can choose to lock anything from 1-3 axes, and the app has a tracking feature which works at moderate skiing speeds, keeping your subject smoothly in the picture.

The key spec to check is the weight of phone that it can stabilise. If a phone is too heavy it won’t work. Mine will do up to 220g which rules out some of the plus size iPhones.

 Anyway, snowHeads is much more fun if you do.

@snowdave, ta, that's worth a look, pretty sure my phone is less than 220g.

Extract ->

The new Osmo Mobile 2 from DJI looks like a good bet, works with just about any phone, and will set you back £129—it comes with some special tricks such as a hyperlapse mode as well. Other popular options include the Zhiyun Smooth-Q (£99) and the Hohem T2 (£200).

@Jeraff, sorry, I meant the DJI Osmo with the built in camera - https://www.dji.com/osmo/camera

I have an x3000 as well, it's got the built in sony optical stabilisation which is really good for taking out a bit of handshake, but nothing compared to the Osmo.

Can't speak for the mobile version, but I've been really happy with the Osmo. It's also survived a lot more abuse than I thought it would, getting bounced around in my pack all day for 3 weeks so far.
