Aloha victor,

     If I recall right, "Gimbal Lock" is a benefit when taking photos.  Video has a lot of maneuvering involved that smooths out the video.  I can imagine a long shutter would especially benefit from a locked gimbal.  But really it would depend on how you are taking the photo and what the conditions are.

     Hope this helps!

Aloha and Drone On!

Aloha Cetacean,

So, when should I not use "Lock Gimbal"?  This isn't at all clear to me, and I've googled and searched on youtube without finding sufficient answers.  

Thanks

I noticed at low light conditions and "longer" exposure while orbiting around an object the pictures turn out better when not locking the gimbal.
