I have a new Phantom 4 Pro 2.0. I am loving the images/video it puts out. To me, it is immediately recognizable as better image quality than my Mavic.

One thing I would like to fix is that if I am videoing perpendicular to my flight, the image has a hitch when the AC comes to a stop. It looks like the gimble is not able to compensate for the change in motion of the AC. Is that something I have to live with or is it something I can fix. My mavic doesn’t do that.

Yes, you can adjust your braking in this menu:

You could also ease off the stick slowly to make your Phantom stop smoothly.

I had this problem intermittently in the first two weeks of ownership. It turned out I was inadvertently pressing C2 button whose default function is FPV/Follow mode for the gimbal. In FPV mode, any sideways flying would cause the gimbal to tilt/jerk. Once I turned that off, no more bumps in the picture when I fly sideways and stop.

Thanks to all the responses. I'll try them all. No doubt one or more will solve my issue.
Thanks again.
