Just wondering if this is normal and if anyone else experiences it whilst shooting motion lapses - as the gimbal follows its path it does a little twitch after every capture for instance of I set a tilt with no horizontal movement the gimbal will twitch to the left or right afterwards every capture, it doesn't effect the final video but just strikes me as really weird

If you search the forums this has been reported by other people. No solution was given and as you say it doesn’t effect the final result.

Its more noticeable when you select the very short interval settings. I reported this a while back and DJI's answer is that its normal, but I'm skeptical as I have done motion lapse with the older Osmo Pocket and don't see this unusual behaviour. Still monitoring my gimbal performance as I'm noticing other odd anomalies. Having said that, the resulting videos are all good - no jerky movements recorded. Don't know what to say about that.

Yes - it seems fine.  My Pocket one and Pocket Two do the same both with excellent results.  I'm guessing there must be a reason for it.

Thanks for the feedback I just wanted to make sure I didn’t have an isolated issue. Its odd that DJI would consider that normal behaviour but whatever now just give me 4K motion lapse video functionality and I’ll be happy ish

Hi, fans5e0e4445. Thanks for reaching out and posting your concern. As already been mentioned, this is a normal gimbal movement phenomenon. The gimbal will become temporarily powerless after every photo is captured, and it will then restart and point to the position of the next target when capturing the following picture. The gimbal movement will not affect the stability or the end result of the Timelapse/Motionlapse. Please avoid touching the gimbal during Timelapse/Motionlapse.

I know that I've brought this up before, but why don't we see this happening with the older Osmo Pocket? Why is the newer Pocket 2 behaving in this unusual manner?

My Pocket 1 does the same.  I understood it was a power saving function so the the gimbal was not powered the entire length of the take.
