Can anyone give me any feedback regarding Rocksteady behavior with the latest firmware? I've watched several videos on YouTube saying that it is quite shakier than before... any personal experience(s)?

Many thanks.

Hi. Thank you for reaching out to DJI Forum. I hope that our valued DJI member who uses the DJI Osmo Action can provide you the best information for this inquiry. Thank you for your valued support.

I'd advise against the update if you can use the camera without. Ruins the only reason I went with the DJI. Was forced into an update via my phone. Luckily I was able to do a charge back due to what is now, false advertisement, with the rocksteady. If they let you select the level of rocksteady that would be one thing. Instead they catered to people that were complaining about a laggy screen on an action camera. You know, the camera you mount somewhere, turn on, and forget about. The same one you shut your screens off on unless you're making an adjustment because they're useless.

On top of that you can use your phone on the internet while you have the DJI connected which is another killer for me. At this point I just feel back for all the people that bought this that I suggested to to because DJI completely ruined it.

Thanks for the reply but the gimbal kind of kills the comparison ;)

Not a problem my guy. Now if DJI would actually fix stuff and make the camera usable on your phone without losing internet.

Sadly rocksteady is now just terrible since last update. Lag is better but at the cost of vertually no rocksteady.

Which is sad. "Let's ruin the thing that makes this action camera so great so we can fix something you literally never use when in action because....you're focused on the action.

Prior to the update it was silky smooth, now its just terrible.  Hopefully next update will fix this.

Timelapses are fabulous lol

I'd sooner have the lag, and rocksteady as it was. I'm hoping a quick fix, but with the Chinese holiday maybe not.

No way to roll back to an earlier firmware?  Too bad no one archives these things like for other products and programs.

Hi Guys. My µSD-card just arrived and after starting Mimo, I am prompted to update the firmware. I am not sure about which firmware version you are writing. I just want to avoid to get a bad rocksteady performance due to the latest update v01.07.00.20 from 2019.12.03.

Could you please confirm if this fw has rocksteady problems or if you are talking about an older fw.

Thanks in advance!

A little late reply but it is the .07 Update, which makes the Camera useless for Action. So better don't do it, if you didn't already. ;)

I have noticed after doing the latest firmware update I have completely lost rocksteady and half my resolution options, Why?????

the only way to retrieve Rocksteady was to do a FACTORY RESET.

WHY is this so, is my Camera faulty?

Cheers

The issue is the last Firmware update, it sucks and RS is now completely useless.

The next FW update hopefully will resolve the lack of RS.

I am so lucky that I haven´t found my old µSD and I had to order a new one. That gave me some time to study some threads and luckily I found this one. I did not update to the latetst firmware ;)

I am crossing my fingers that DJI get fixed that soon. But the response from DJI employees here is really sad...
