DJI Osmo Mobile 2 with Android TIMELAPSE


Today is tutorial time. What is the difference between Timelapse,
Hyperlapse and Motion lapse? How do we set them up with DJI Osmo Mobile
2 gimbal and Android phone. In my case Samsung Galaxy S6. And for those watching my channel first time,
my name is Zdenka Darula. I work as a photographer, I am a former model
and few other things. I make tutorials, fun vlogs so don’t forget
to hit the subscribe button. My question is. How are you doing today? Are you smiling? Let’s get right into it. Let me grab my favorite tool which is DJI
Osmo mobile 2 gimbal and of course my phone which is Samsung Galaxy S6. Yeah… I know… I should upgrade soon. Thinking about it, saving for it, working
on it. So what is timelapse, hyperlapse and motion
lapse? Well, I’ll tell you it’s no slow motion. It is the opposite. It is a fast speed video captured over a long
period of time. So for example, you capture sunset for 30
minutes and then you play it very fast. Like under a minute. Or sunrise. The same thing. You capture it for 30 minutes and then you
play it fast. Let me explain the difference between timelapse,
hyperlapse and motion lapse. Let’s start with the first one which is timelapse. Timelapse is used when you want to capture
something stationary. The best thing is to use tripod. Simply set up at the location, open DJI Go
App, select video mode and hit timelapse. To get that beautiful timelapse going you
will need to set up interval and duration of video recording. And here comes the question most of the beginners
are wondering about. What interval to choose? Generally if you want to capture fast movement
such as clouds or crowd of people walking by, you want to use 2 or 3 or 4 frames a second
setting. Basically anything below 4. This means that it will snap frame more often. And for slow movement such as clouds moving
very slow in the sky or sunrise and sunset, you want to go little bit higher frame rate
which would be 5 – 9 so anything above 5 is good. That means it will snap frame or photo less
often. Now this is creative right? So as I always say in photography, there are
really no rules. You should be playing around, you should have
fun. You should try different things so try different
frame rates, you can follow what I told you here, but you can come up with something on
your own. Try different speeds and see what you like,
what works for you. What is your personal taste. What your eye likes. Next step, you should be deciding how long
you want the final timelapse to be. You know it takes a long time to create timelapse
so if you have the time to be there the whole day, if you don’t… then you really want
to think about the final length. I personally go with 12 – 16 seconds timelapse. It is long enough for me to work with it when
I am editing the final video. I can use the whole piece or I can actually
use just little piece or to choose whatever looks best in the timelapse. One important thing you want to do with your
phone when you are doing timelapse is put it in the airplane mode. If you are filming let’s say 30 minutes timelapse,
somebody calls you, it will shut off and you will have to start all over and yeah.. for
example, I don’t have the time to be there the whole day to keep doing timelapses all
over, all over. I get few phone calls here and there, so put
it in the airplane mode and you have the guarantee that you have to do it only once. Just like I said before, it is very creative
so you should try to play with different frame rates. Now personally myself I prefer a bit smooth
timelapses. I don’t go as crazy so my intervals are usually
0.5 – 1 or 2. Then I look at the final time of timelapse
and I select the duration accordingly. And of course if I want to capture really
slow movement in a timelapse, then I have to go little bit faster with a frame rate
which would be 4 – 5 and up. Moving on… When do you use Hyperlapse? Whenever you don’t have this on a tripod,
when you are moving. When you are holding it and you are walking
or driving… well not driving. You are sitting next to the driver. You are the one, you are the passanger. That’s when you are holding it and doing the
hyperlapse. From my experience I actually found that works
the best if you choose some large object such as building. Lock it up and then you move closer towards
it. If you are walking just do it steadily and
very smooth movements. Finally we got to the last one which is motion
lapse and I got to say this is my favorite. When you use motion lapse? If you want to capture really big scene. Doesn’t matter if it is nice or ugly. Basically you want to start over here and
end up somewhere over there. That’s when you use motion lapse. So let’s go ahead and set up the motion lapse. Hit the mode where it says motion lapse. And here you will be able to select up to
5 positions. So here let’s say, I select one here, then
I turn this way and I’ll select position no. 2, no.3, no.4, no.5 depends how many you want
to select. Then obviously you will have to choose your
interval and duration of your motion lapse. And next you just need to step back or sit
back and enjoy watching your gimbal as it does it for you and it is pretty cool to actually
watch it as it moves from one point to the other. So that’s it all my friends. I hope you get something out of it. If you like the video, please don’t forget

  2. Thank you for the breakdown of the different types. I’ve only used time lapse and hyperlapse so far.
    I just bought a DJI Osmo pocket and am editing some video from it. I’m planning to have it posted later today! It has a motion lapse feature on it and I’m going to work on that next! Thanks Zdenka!

  3. Thanks for nice tutorial. I have the same setup osmo 2 and s6 😉 I think s6 is to short for making videos becouse I see on right side part of my gimbal. I have to upgrade too.

  4. Thanks for this educative video but have a question. Does this functionality supported on your andriod device? Some bloggers stated that these functions are only possible in IOS but not in Android platform….
    I have less than 5 days to go on my vacation and I have to make the final decision of which humble brand I should buy!!! As I wanted a gimble that will work on my Samsung galaxy s8+ or on my Galaxy S6+

  8. Great video! Problem I have with DJI Osmo Mobile 2 is that the actual gimbal is visible in the screen and video! Using both Samsung Galaxy S8 and S9 with same result. Thinking of trying another brand but will have a look at CES 2019 first.

  9. Your explanation was clear and easy to understand. I was somewhat not 100% on the differences and when to use each option but after your informative video, it’s clarified. Thank you! Im a newbie to YouTube and also the DJI OSMO MOBILE 2 so am looking forward to using both and learning lots 😊

  10. Hello
    Thanks for the Tutorial.
    TIP: On your phone, there is an app called "Game Launcher". Try putting DJI GO into this app and you can set up phone calls and anything else you want.

  11. Hello Zdenka! I am using my samsung galaxy note 9 to capture delicious timelapses videos on my dji osmo mobile 2. Its so exciting, however I have struggled getting the video into a video editing application. I wonder if you know how to export the video without compression? I wanted to put a few timelapse videos together in editing software.

  12. I love this video because I have been curious about the different types of time lapse and you explained it so well.
    I also enjoyed that you shared your personal settings.
    That gives me something to go by.
    As always your tutorials are always my favorites. 😀

  13. I really enjoy creating timelapses in my osmo2, and I’m trying to find how to create smoother timelapses, wether post production or in the initial setup. For example, people moving and you can see the smooth estela. Thanks! Great video!
