Has anybody found out what the Orbit Follow mode actually does? Since DJI is not capable of giving a description in their update notes and I haven't seen people talking about it. Maybe someone here knows.

Hi Saviour,

It is supposed to make camera movements smoother as you orbit around an object in any of the follow modes.

I have tried it and it does not seem to make much of an improvement when orbiting around an object.

In general, the RS2 (even without orbit mode) is already much smoother orbiting around an object then the R and the RS.

Hello there saviour. Good day and thank you for these information you have posted. The orbit follow algorithm optimizes the stability and smoothness of the gimbal following and surrounding scene, which can help you shoot better videos. In daily use, if you are using a telepoto lens, it is recommended to turn on orbit follow when the step is not very consistent, which can effectively improve the shooting effect. Of course, if you have rich operating experience and steady steps, the effect may not be so obvious when you turn on this function. Thank you.

Thank you Stephen,

is there any reason to NOT activate Orbit Follow? Is there any downside or side effect?
Because if not, it would be just beneficial to just have it turned on constantly, right?
