Since I purchased the OSMO mobile this summer I have NOT been able to use my OSMO mobile for timelapse because the AF lock don't lock as it should. I am using a Samsung Galaxy S7. The result is jumbing videos with a lot of frames shoot while the camera was auto focusing, even that I locked it in the software.

I purchased the OSMO mobile because it has (or should have) the option to make timelapse.

I am still waiting for this problem to be solved but is loosing my patience.

Is there any reason to think this problem will be fixed? Otherwise I will contact DJI and require a refund.

Right now I don't own the OSMO mobile DJI told me they sold me.

I have just set up a new Osmo Mobile (Jan 2017) and have the same issue - Auto Focus will not lock although the Auto Exposure lock seems to work.   I wonder is there a touch sequence to get auto focus to lock - or may be it is just another Android Issue (I am using Galaxy A3(6) with Android 6).  The tracking feature does work though - which is good.

This complaint already exist in this forum, but the DJI don´t resolve this unacceptable defect: Osmo Mobile do not have manual focus! I don´t believe this gadget haven´t this feature! DJI: we really need MANUAL FOCUS! Respect yours costumers! What's up? WAKE UP!

There ia a workaround. Switch to picture mode, make a lock, then switch back to video mode. As long as tou don't change focus it will stay locked in timelapse and video (but ae lock is not:/). Sad thing is that it clearly shows that af lock works but is poorly implemented on android.

I already given up on the DJI go app. I just use it as gimbal for my s7 edge.

I know the motion timelaspe is cool but the apps will never allow me to record good quality video due to focus lock and low bitrate. I used stock samsung camera app and increase the bitrate.
  
see this if you know how to root your s7 https://forum.xda-developers.com ... d-bitrates-t3439870

I am telling you, that mod worth rooting your s7.

I haven't had the same autofocus issues on my S7 Edge when doing time lapses (though the quality has much to be desired..). However, what is really annoying is when I take panorama shots (9 shot or 330) and some of the frames are completely blurred out. Does anyone have this issue?

I see, so I guess one of the earlier posters suggestion to lock the AF in picture mode and then switch to video mode to do time lapses doesn't really work then.

I've tried locking the focus in picture mode to take the panoramas and still am getting blurred frames. I reached out to DJI support and they told me to tap the screen to re-focus while taking the photos or time-lapses (which doesn't work as the app doesn't respond to touch when in those modes)...

Same problem with Xiaomi Redmi Note 3 phone. No options to disable or lock AF, timelapse videos looks terrible. It looks like the DJI developers do not have the appropriate knowledge for this work. I think about return gadget. It is unusable.

Solution from DJI support: use iPhone!

Bobby: Upon checking with our R and D department that they are already fixing this issue regarding the AF, they told me that try to use a different device like Iphone

He also said that a new version of the application will be released today and (MAY BE) it will solve this problem.

Or maybe not.

No, the new version 3.1.10 does not solve the problem. There are still no options for locking auto-focus.

Ok, solution found in my case with Xiaomi Redmi Note 3 Pro.

Long pressing screen now lock AF/AE in version 3.1.10. It is pity that is AE locked, but it is acceptable.

Sorry for my bad words, DJI!
