Hi I have bought my Mavic 1 month ago and doing some tests before taking it with me to my next trip abroad, I have noticed an important issue on the gimbal that it seems the gimbal not always doing its job properly. Raising the drone up in the sky it is stable and no matter the speed i cannot see any shake or vibration on the video. Unfortunately,  most of the times during the way down, it shakes and the shooting looks quite unsteady. Does my unit need to be repaired or just need some upgrades? I have reinitiate and recalibrate it and I guees i have the latest release of firmware since the app doesn't  ask for any update. I attach a short video with some unsteady shots where you can see the image is not always very stable when the drone is descending. Pls check this link https://youtu.be/Vmma4Tq6KLK
Appreciate your advise. Regards

All multi-rotors have difficulty descending. They shake because the air pushing against the underside of the props alters the dynamics of lift generated at low RPM.
On the little Mavic, the camera gimbal and electronics can compensate for a certain amount, but you are witnessing it being pushed to the limits here.
Really, the only solution is to descend slower OR record the shot ascending and reverse it if possible.

Thanks indeed. I appreciate your comment. Just wanted to be sure it is not because of some malfunctioning. Kind regards

I will do some test also in tripod mode in order to double check this issue.

Hi there!
I'm having the same issues here, but i'm having the same shake even when i'm ascending. I've checked the gimbal bae plate and seems to be free.  Is there any other explanation  
I had a thought if the "shake" has to do with the amount of light and maybe the camera reaches it's limits? ...don't know
here's the footage

Hi kostantino. For the moment I did not notice any other but I will keep on testing as this gimbal looks to me very weak and fragile.
