From the movie Exists (2014):

Usually when you put a GoPro camera inside of this casing, it doesn't focus very well underwater. So I went out and I bought one of these bad boys. That's gonna help me focus underwater because it's got a flat lens. So we're pretty much gonna get some pimp shots underwater today.

I searched online. Couldn't find anything as to what it means. So, maybe you guys can help me fugure out what pimp shots are?

"Pimp shot" is not a phrase as such. You have to consider on one side the adjective :

  • pimp which is slang for "very good", "stylish", "awesome"....

and on the other the noun :

  • shot which in the context you give is a photograph.

So "pimp shots" here means "awesome photos".

  • Is adjective "pimp" related to the verb to pimp, as in 'pimp my ride'?

    Yes. Both being related to the noun pimp, which means someone who "manages" prostitutes. In short: it's not really a word one should use in formal situations.
