Cheers mate! I prefer stills - take LOADS - use pano, HDR, AEB, intervals - lots of different colour gradings then pick your best ones.

There was - it's just the angle of the light and my MPP being hundreds of feet above it.
This was at take off on the same flight.

Another great shot - looks almost dreamy.
I must admit that I have not taken good pictures with my drone. Mavic Pro has an excellent camera, but I do not understand getting still images of good quality.

Can I get some great tips for camera settings?

Light is vital and makes all the difference. Subject matter is crucial though a tree can be more dramatic than a football match LOL. Angle. Altitude. Symmetry but lighting conditions above all.
As for the camera - the kelvin (white balance) needs to be perfect (never auto). Gimbal tilt needs to be finely adjusted between the rule of thirds and position to the sun. ISO ALWAYS set to 100. Shutter speeds working with ND filters due to the fixed aperture to control the light and therefore the exposure value. Higher shutter speeds don't matter as much with stills as there is obviously no motion blur unless the subject is moving at close range during the shot like a person running or a car/bike driving at fast speed. You will get a jello effect with the Mavic though due to the electronic shutter. Colour grades and profiles: sharpness, contrast, saturation are all down to personal preference. Once you have all of the that under your control it then comes down to positioning the drone at the right time/setting and finally editing in post. I'm still getting the hang of it all too

Thank you.
It's practically the same guidelines as for video.. Still, I just don't think the still images I'm taking get pretty good... and they are also pretty small physically I think. I have only tried the RAW format because of the possibility of better editing and finally saving in the JPEG format.

Should I try the jpeg format directly instead?

I shoot JPEG and RAW together. Just starting snapping in addition to recording when you fly.

No, they are coming from the US since I didn't find them here. Expected delivery date 5 March.
