    Anyone using it with the iPhone XS Max ?
    It keeps dropping on one side and it loses connectivity.

    Is it because the phone is too heavy ?
    Worked perfect with the X.

    sounds like the gimbal is out of balance as the XS is a bigger/heavier phone that the X. I know I had to play with mine to get it balanced with the X

    I believe the Osmo has a maximum weight of 202 grams and the iPhone Xs Max is 208 grams without a case. That’s the upper limit. The osmo may turn on but any additional weight or even a strong wind would cause it to shut down. There is a new gimbal by Snoppa (The Atom) that supports up to 400 grams.

    Didn’t bother to calibrate. But I think it shuts down because of the weight.

    Yeah, tried calibrating it, but it shuts down. Too heavy.

    Why not get a stronger gimbal? You still have to deal with the OIS that can't be disabled.

    Yeah.
    It seems I’m stupid.
    You can balance the gimbal using the knobs.
    It works even with a case. No issues.
    Well, I was pretty happy with the footage from the iPhone X.
    I’m not using it professionally.
    Just your average work presentations.

    Did you notice any improvement regarding the jitter moving from the x to the Xs?
