I've never owned or used this type of device before, so I speak as a newbie on this section of the forum.Feedback and advice are always welcome, as I have a lot to learn about this equipment.

I ordered the full package Creator Combo, and it was delivered to my door within 24 hours of placing the
order direct with DJI.  An impressive start and excellent service.
On opening the box, everything was found to be in place, superbly packaged and protected, and in good
condition.  Assembling the bits and pieces took a little while, but no glitches occured.
The battery had some charge in it, so a few experimental moves were tried indoors, as dusk was already
falling outside.  Tonight would be the moment for charging the battery fully, and preparing for a short
excursion the next morning.
Sunday. A dull, damp morning. Not ideal for testing, but at least no rain so off we go.
From the very first, I got the warning:  SD card too slow. Strange, as it's one of the fastest Sandisk cards
available, 64Gb size, and which I have used without problems in my several DJI drones.
Nevertheless, it worked successfully despite the warning, as you will see in the video clips (link below)
What I did find, was that the gimbal, once rotated, seems to struggle to regain the horizontal, and I get
a distinct fish-eye effect when panning up and down (clip 2). This may well be due to lack of experience,
or maybe attaching the wide-angle lens fitting will overcome the effect. ( Shoulda read the manual )
That's enough from me for now.  More later.

Lovely location, lucky to have it so close. Quick question, when you pan down, the ground nearest you is shaking. Is this on the original file? Am wondering if youtube compression has caused it.

Don't worry.  I have Parkinson's disease which causes my hands to tremble slightly. It's not a fault of the device.
It's not noticeable on distance shots, but I immediately noticed it on close-up.

I'm one of the lucky ones, it's only progressing slowly. I could take medication but I prefer to leave that until it gets to be a problem. Thanks anyway for your concern

Not entirely sure what it entails, and I doubt I could maintain a theme long enough to be of lasting interest to a "following".

Thank you DJI Stephen. So far, my only concern is the wide-angle lens attachment. I find its magnetic mount very flimsy (weak) being magnetic,  and I can foresee a scenario where it may easily become detached and lost. And it would be handy to have a container for it rather than the plastic bag it came in. Not ideal. Apart from that, it's an impressive bit of kit - though it being so small,  I think I will keep the larger base extension on permanently to allow a better grip.
