    Maximum Frames Per Second for X5S

    Does the X5S offer 120 frames per second for 1920x1080? Also unsure if the FPS recording capabilities are the same as when using it on the Osmo.

    When shooting my x5s into the sun I have been noticing this unacceptable grid in my shots that makes them unusable. My settings have been shooting 25mm lens (happens with all lenses), raw, rec709, 5.2k and 4k. Has anyone encountered this problem or is it just my camera sensor and I should reach...

    Weird Sound

    My new x5s makes a weird sound when tilting and panning. No vibration, just a high-pitched whining sound. Seems to be coming from the gimbal. I have updated the firmware. Is this normal?

    Question on Advanced Settings for X5S

    After reading the manual I cannot find any explanation of advanced settings for +EXP, Smoothness, Pitch/Yaw speeds etc. Is there an article on this?

    This started as a 30.2MB RAW still. I had to radically compress and resample it and then convert it to a jpeg to make it post-able. This version is 4.6MB and still loaded with detail. The X5 was no slouch either, but I think the difference is noticeable. I also like the new mount. I think it...
