Aboard Aranui Cruises last month.  Shot with the Mavic Platinum PRo straight out of the box.  Found that the settings for footage were a bit harder to work out than my P3P, and overall quality of the shots as a result weren't on point for me.  And as per another thread, quite a few issues with jello effect, but happy with it....so damn portable!!!!

The one scene where you flew up behind that guy in the water . . .   got a bit close there.  As drone pilots, we need to be careful about giving ammunition against our sport to even more folks who already hate drones.  An accidental strike on a person gives the haters one more thing to use as an argument to restrict drones.

good point, and it was closer than i intended.  I wanted to go higher faster, but wasn't aware of the speed of the MAvic as it was brand new.  He is a friend, so its fine....but toally see your point.

i think i prefer the other 2 i posted, mainly because the colour and shutter settings were easier to manage with the P3P.  at least until i get used to the Mavic....and until my Polar Pro filters arrive

Thanks very very much for your courtesy in understanding my post.  I was worried you might take it negatively.

Beautiful video! I'm curious about that ship...it looks like the front half is cargo, and the rear is passengers. Is that correct?

Very nice footage. Only the underwater scene could be better using a red filter and manual white balance of your camera. All blue's will be gone and colors will come back.

correct....  the freight delivery is what takes it to such remote places.  Bringing them their supplies allows enough time for passengers to get off and meet the locals and do quite a bit on each island.  Spectacular really...  www.aranuicruises.com.au

Awesome video, the water clarity is amazing.

I loved your ship, a combination of container ship and cruise liner, that's so unique
