Franken-Cam: DJI Osmo Mobile 2 with Zoom H1n, Rode outside Mic, iphone X & GoPro

I’ve been thinking about a hand-held gimbal for a while now as well as so my ears pricked up when DJI revealed the new Osmo Mobile 2 earlier this year.

The Mk2 system has a number of advantages over the old one, much much better battery life, a zoom slider, portrait mode as well as importantly, a much much more budget-friendly price.

One drawback though is the removal of the rosette accessory install that was on the side of the old gimbal. With an up-coming job that was going to need fantastic audio, I set about searching for a method to adapt the Osmo 2 for an outside microphone.

Even though the installing thread on the side has gone, the Mk2 system has a new tripod install on the bottom of the grip. Bingo. So after some experimenting right here are the elements I utilized to develop the rig in the picture above.

The new video camera stabiliser holds any type of wise phone as long as it’s between 58.6mm as well as 85mm wide. The method it clamps the phone implies it’s practically impossible to plug an outside microphone into a contemporary iphone (one without a headphone socket), although much more on that later.

As before Osmo 2 utilizes Bluetooth low energy 4.0 to link to your phone as well as a 2 hour (2 amp) fee offers a theoretical maximum of 15 hours service from its 2600 mAh battery (with a completely balanced gimbal).

The unit’s general measurement are 295×113×72 mm (folded) as well as in utilize it can relocation its 3-axis gimbal at as much as 120° per second to keep things smooth. in addition to typical stabiliser responsibilities it can carry out a series of other techniques including a extremely outstanding AI powered ActiveTrack, Motionlapse as well as Hyperlapse in addition to stitched panoramas.
