    Relatively new pilot... First filming flight for my Phantom 3 Pro... up till now I have been flying to get the feel of flying it through the reference monitor, not really looking at anything beyond framing, flight path, etc... today I shot some footage for the first time (4k)... less than steller results...

    Gimble: During playback there were several times when the gimble would be twitch and not smooth at all... there was a little wind out but not much... some very rough moments from the gimble...

    Auto Iris: Is there a way to disable auto iris and set exposure manually? Several of my shots were blown today by the auto iris rapidly changing...

    "Jello": I experienced some screen tearing that I'm told is referred to as "jello"... not sure what causes it... but if it is common in the DJI 4k camera it's not going to be very useful...

    Feedback, suggestions?

    For smooth video, check that you have the gimbal set for Follow - not FPV
    There is no iris diaphragm on the camera .. it is fixed aperture.

    Have removed all transit packing from around the gimbal. You would not be the first to have been caught out by that if you havent.
