Join Jim Heid for an in-depth discussion in this video Tips for using the gimbal, part of DJI Mavic Pro: Tips, Tricks, & Techniques.
- The Mavic's gimbal is its key to smooth video…and sharp long exposure photos.…And it's obviously the secret for getting video shots…that tilt up and down.…I want to share a few gimbal-related tips in this video…starting with that whole tilting thing.…Early in this course,…when we talk about the Mavic's cinematic mode,…I mentioned that good drone camera movements…should start and end gradually.…They should ease in and ease out…instead of just starting and stopping jarringly.…The same applies to gimbal tilts.…I love shots where the gimbal tilts up or down…either a little or a lot.…
Moves like these are great for adding a dimension to a shot…and to tell a story, to start on a detail,…and then reveal a bigger scene or vice versa.…But again, easing in and easing out are critical.…The gimbal's dial on the remote control helps a little.…If you move it only a small amount, the gimbal tilt slows,…but it's a little overly sensitive…and when you're working outside and also working the sticks,…making that small finesse move can be hard.…
