    The Olympus is cool that you can zoom but seems to have some movements in the video due to changing balance. Seems to be off balance and too heavy to the right (see photo). I have been using DJI balance ring.

    Also when looking at the lens profile in settings it says its a M.Zuiko Digital Ed 8mm F1.8 Fisheye. Not sure what that means? From the shots I have taken it is definitely not a fisheye lens (thats why I got rid of my Phantom 2). I am currently on firmware 1.4.00.10+ (machine came with firmware) and hesitant to upgrade due to some poor reports for 1.4.0.70 and the latest one this month.

    1. Just upgrade your firmware, there have been post 1.4 improvements to adapt to the 14-42 lens.
    2. A little tilt when powered off is fine, contrary to popular belief these lenses do not need to be 1000% perfect. An egregious error in balance is one thing, a minor variance is another. Besides, impossible to balance a lens that moves - this is what the motors are for.
