Shooting Standard Mode

The single shot is the standard way for shooting images with the DJO Osmo Mobile 2 stabilizer. To get started taking pictures, you can choose either the horizontal or vertical view. Then, download the app and connect your device via Bluetooth.  To get started you can use the front or rear facing cameras. To take a picture quickly tap on the red record button to capture the shot. You can also tap on the shutter button on the screen to take the shot. There are many settings you can use in standard mode. Open the DJI go app on the camera button and settings to choose manual mode for shooting.  You can also take burst shots by pressing on the shutter button on the Osmo handle or on your screen. This creates a series of photos.

Motion Tracking

Motion tracking is an easy way to capture movement. If you are taking pictures of a sporting event, you can turn on motion tracking and use the burst mode to get great shots. To turn on motion tracking tap on the orange circle in the bottom. It will switch to green-which means that it is ready for motion tracking. A green box will appear and you can choose the subject to track. As the person moves, the camera will track them. Then you can take shots of the person moving and get great motion shots. You can also choose the tracking options to normal or sport. This will make it easier for the motion tracker to work in any situation.


The panorama mode on the DJI Osmo Mobile2 Stabilizer will take several shots and stitch them together. This will create a shot with greater detail and a wider field of view. It is best if you have a tripod because the stabilizer will begin to move, and it is hard to hold still. There are few panorama options that you can choose from, the ultra wide angle, the 180 degree panorama, and the Ultra Wide Angle/ 360 degree shot.

Wide Angle

The wide angle shot takes a number of shots and is stitched together in the final version. It is easy to get a great shot and to take an image with greater depth and detail. Getting a wide angle shot is difficult with the phone so this feature can be used a lot if you take beautiful scenery.     

180 Panorama

               The 180 degree panorama shot will capture a greater view of the scene. The DJI Osmo Mobile 2 stabilizer rotates to capture a very detailed part or the scene. It takes 9 shots and will start from the upper left corner and rotates in a grid. It is important to hold the stabilizer still so that you can take a great shot. After all 9 shots are taken the app will take a minute to load and then will stitch all the images together into a shot.

Ultra Wide Angle/360

               The ultra wide 360 degree shot will take a 360 shot of the full scene. The Osmo will do the same process of stitching the shots together. This creates a shot with a story of the whole scene and is back with a lot of detail.

Long Exposure

               There are two types of long exposure that the DJI Osmo Mobile 2 Stabilizer can take. It can take a traditional long exposure or a light trail. Usually, in photography, taking a long exposure can be challenging, with the light changing and setting the ISO and aperature. With the Osmo, you can achieve these effects with less work. It will take continuous pictures that will overlap giving you the effect of a long exposure shot.

Standard Long Exposure

               This mode is for taking images where you would like the image to stop. This can be a waterfall that creates a smooth and almost stopped motion on the water. This can be used in creating great shots of the sky at night. It may take some practice to get it right. With the Osmo, you can set the time for the long exposure or leave it on continuously.

Light Trail

               The Lighttrail option picks up the detail from any moving light. This can be great if you want to take a shot of cars moving or city lights. Also, if you take pictures of stars you can get a great shot.


The DJI Osmo Mobile 2 is a great product and has a lot of new features that are worth it. If you plan on becoming a mobile photographer, the DJI Osmo is definitely a product to try. You can purchase it right here for $129.
