After a while of shooting with the DJI Mavic Pro, I notice something weird, my footage was off. Whatever I did I could not get a clean sliding shot. Looking deep I realized many of my shots were a bit crooked. Turns out my gimbal was not calibrated. When you are taking photos or footage looking down, it’s barely noticeable but when you are trying to shoot anything with horizontal lines it becomes obvious.
The solution is easy, you need to calibrate the DJI Mavic Pro gimbal. Calibration may sound like a big word, but its simply telling the Mavic what is the gimbal “idle” position to keep the horizon level.
