The next leg of our trip covered about 320 miles, and drove through Three Rivers, Lake Kaweah, Sequoia National Park and Forest, the Largest Tree in the World, and then we drove all the way down to Long Beach, LA. Lots of wild fires still burning in the area so all the haze is either smoke, smog, or fog. Could be all 3.

Yes, the night shots of LA did turn out great. I should have done more but this was later in the trip and we were getting pretty worn out and going to bed earlier every night. We tend to plan TOO much stuff on our vacations and then we end up needing a vacation from our vacation. Thanks B1houdini for the view and comment.

Yeah, I'm really happy with the Mavic Air at night. Very crisp vivid shots.

Woah! I'm featured on the home page again! It's been a while since that happened. I shot and edited one video for every day of the trip. Here's the complied list 1-9. Only had 1 day where I didn't fly the Mavic Air.

Yeah, 3 more days of footage to edit but I got stuck here at work for a 16 hour shift! Ahhh! I want to be at home editing. Oh well, I guess I have to work to pay for more drones and more vacations.

Thanks for the views and comments. It makes it all worth it!

I have an older copy of Adobe Premiere Pro. Not all the new features but it gets me by.

Pretty sure it was on Automatic settings on Day 6 at night. The next night I filmed in the same location and used Manual settings but because it was so dark I literally had it on the brightest manual settings I could have and I still could not capture the Queen Mary ship adequately.

Thank you for asking.

I have not yet done night or city as the closest city is 30km away.  However your photo`s have enticed me to go the extra 60km (30km there and 30km back) to see what I can get.

If you make the drive then don't forget to get some 360 panos at night. They look great in my opionion. Here are a few of my favorites that I took. I stitched them in MS ICE and did touchups in Photoshop.

Post #10 is now updated with video 1-9. I'm done. The entire vacation is edited and there was only 1 day that I didn't fly/film with the Mavic Air. I'm pretty happy with the finished products, however I can tell my editing isn't as tight when I'm using my underpowered laptop. I much prefer to edit from my desktop at home.
