Users will also be able to connect the Ronin-S to their camera and use the gimbal's physical controls to change cameras settings such as ISO, shutter speed and the record video button.

DJI has also updated its line of Ronin stabilizers for professional cinematographers.

The physical controls built into the handle have also received a makeover, which DJI reckons will make them easier to use. Yes, that handheld stabilizer for your smartphone made by DJI - a company very well known for making drones.

Unlike its predecessor, the Osmo Mobile 2 lets you mount your phone in the portrait orientation.

Created to be lightweight and portable, Osmo Mobile 2 is made from high-strength modified nylon and features a folding design that makes it flawless for all-day use.

The three-axis Ronin-S also boasts a range of advanced shooting modes, such as Push mode, which lets you adjust the pan and tilt axis by hand when the Ronin-S is powered on. The DJI Ronin-S is a handheld gimbal that is large enough for your common DSLR (and mirrorless of course) video configurations without requiring such a payload capacity of the larger gimbals that are much more expensive.

The MAB for semi-urban areas has been unchanged at Rs 2,000, but penalties for non-maintenance have been slashed for this group. Accordingly, the bank demands Rs 5,000 in MAB in metros and Rs 1,000 in rural accounts, failing which it charges a penalty.

Available in two frame sizes for either camera type, DJI's powerful three-axis gimbal technology delivers smooth, shake-free video and crisp photos.

Its stabilization system compensates for zoom lenses with higher magnification ratios and an external zooming barrel, while its advanced stabilization algorithms work with both in-camera and in-lens optical stabilization technology.

Both camera mounts will be released later this year.

The new Osmo Mobile 2 will be priced from US$129 (about RM514) which is far cheaper than the original model which used to start from US$299 (about RM1,192). Other shooting modes include Panorama, Hyperlapse, Track and CamAnchor, which allows you to designate specific camera positions in a scene and rotate between them on demand.

It features a simple, ergonomic curved design and dedicated controls (buttons and a joystick) for controlling camera settings and positioning. DJI promises that the new built-in battery can last up to 15 hours of continuous use, three times longer than the previous generation. The availability is going to be in February, and for the phones to be supported, DJI says that most of the big phones will be supported.

The DJI Ronin-S will be available in the second quarter of 2018 from DJI's website and authorized retailers. Pricing information for the Ronin-S will be revealed prior to availability.
