From DJI Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search

The gimbal anticipates handle movement to smooth out pan and tilt transitions, and uses SmoothTrack technology to reduce camera shakes from natural arm movements. Additionally, there are buttons on the front and back of the handle that allow for finer control over the gimbal and camera. All of the buttons and controls are described below. Locking the Gimbal Pull the pan axis lock down and rotate the pan axis to the locked position (until it cannot rotate any further), and then adjust the roll motor and tilt motor in order to lock them in place. You can lock and unlock the gimbal while the Osmo is turned on. Quickly tap the trigger twice to reactivate the motors after they are unlocked. Hold the Osmo steady and upright while it is starting up.
