I have a DJI Phantom 3 advanced and I notice some side to side shake on my videos....not all the time it's intermittent. Flew on a relatively calm day. I have replaced the vibration dampers with new ones and only have two on. On opposing corners...any idea. Aircraft hasn't been crashed or rough landings. Thanks Terry

Older Phantoms can be victims of prop balancing, you did the right thing changing out the dampers (need all 4), but newer plastic props tend to flex causing the "JELLO" effect. I use carbon fiber props on my old Phantom 3 Pro. I don't get to fly it as much compared to my Phantom 4 Pro and Mavic 2 Pro, so it needs a warm up flight to loosen the dampers up again to cut out the "JELLOing"

May need to reinstall new firmware just a thought if the software has any kind of bug this can happen specially since you’re saying it’s not constant I would try that

Hi, I don't have a P3 but some 6/7 years ago I did fit a gimbal to a (non-DJI) drone to mount an action camera. The first dampers that I tried were too stiff and the shake improved after I fitted a new set of softer grade dampers. I offer this in the hope that it might help.

Recoveryone has also given good advice regarding the prop balance. Check the tips and leading edge of the props for damage. Try swapping the props onto the diagonally opposite motor and see if that fixes the jello. Try a new set of props.

All the best, Martin
