Motion Time Lapse – Shot on an iPhone at Sunset and then in a gale using the DJI Osmo Mobile

DJI motion

The sunrises and sunsets on Dartmoor recently have been spectacular with some vivid colours. So as part of my review process I decided to test the motion time lapse mode on the DJI Osmo Mobile, shown above. For the sunset motion time lapse shown below, I have the DJI extension attached to the DJI Osmo Mobile. The extension piece has a tripod screw which allows for a decent connection to my tripod.

Using the DJI Go app, you select motion time lapse, then you select the start and end points of the time lapse. You can several points too to make the motion time lapse more interesting. Next the duration between taking a photo and the overall length of time required is set. All you now have to do is press the shutter to start, and the DJI Osmo Mobile does the rest.

So far so good. But I wanted to know how much the DJI Osmo Mobile could stabilise the iPhone 7 Plus in extreme winds. During the recording of the below motion time lapse, I was concerned my tripod was going to be blown over many times. Fortunately, it didn’t. Despite the very strong winds, the DJI did a reasonable job too.

And finally, at sunrise yesterday, I couldn’t resist this view on Dartmoor. Snapped using Adobe Lightroom mobile, in raw, and post processed with Adobe Lightroom mobile.

  1. Great videos, photo, and review! I have a question about the settings you used for the first sunset video. Can you remember how long the sequence was and what intervals are you set? Thanks so much!
