Has anyone figured out what the native iso is for the Mavic 2 pro? I assume it should be higher than the Mavic pro but not 100% sure. Thanks in advance.

I get that's the range.  What my question is in the original mavic pro if you go any higher then 200 iso you start to hit noise.  I was wondering what is highest I can get from the Mavic 2 Pro before noise is introduced.

We will check this information to the right department to seek some clarification as well. Thank you for the support.

Would love to know what the NATIVE ISO is on the MV2P.

Same here ! Would love to know the native ISO to get most of the dynamic range.

It’s 100, obviously.

Why "obviously"?

Plenty of cameras have a higher base ISO and shoot under it.  Most DSLRs for starters.

The Phantom 4 Pro native iso is 500 for DLOG. The native ISO may very well be 400 or 500.

I think you guys are referring to the BASE ISO, which is the single ISO setting at which your sensor/processing pipeline produces its best signal-to-noise ratio and where the sensor can achieve its full dynamic range.
Im guessing 400 or 800 on this one.

I would believe that. I wish there was just a confirmation or something like a demonstration showing this.

Base ISO, native ISO, it's all the same I think.

For example, with my Ursa Mini 4.6k, ISO 800 gives the most balanced dynamic range between highlights and shadows. ISO 1600 gives more room in highlights, while ISO 200 gives more dynamic range in shadows.

I did tests taking photos of a grey card, and it seems that at ISO 200, the noise is already higher than at ISO 100, so selectable base ISO is, I believe, ISO100.
In auto ISO mode, the app selected ISO 120 though.

ahh that's quite a shame. Can you post some photos of your test.

Test images of sensor behavior depending on the sensitivity setting (ISO):

www.ygrabo.com/M2_noise_RAW.zip (260MB)
> The raw images, white balance was not precise, but close enough (to the field)

www.ygrabo.com/M2_noise_JPG_crop.zip (10MB)
> JPG crops of the original images, after white balance.

In all cases, sharpening and noise reduction was turned off.

Thanks so much! I was hoping it would be higher but none the less still an amazing compact drone!

Well, usually we have too much light and have to shoot with ND filters. So keeping it at ISO100 is not a huuuge deal. ISO200 seems acceptable, and in video, everything is different again because of the oversampling, compression etc.

I would also like to know what the base ISO for dlog-m is. It should be higher than 100...

Out of pure curiosity, I compared your RAW processed by LR ( no corrections ) and the same file stripped from the DJI profile by another program (no corrections). Some difference

There is also something to note.
When I imported all the RAWs from ygrabo to the software that removes all profiles. I've noticed that exposure is decreasing from ISO 3200.
Im assuming because maximum ISO for this sensor is 1600 and when shutter speed is getting faster the image is getting darker.

It looks like ISO 3200, 6400 and 12800 are basically ISO 1600 with increased exposure via profile ( extended ISO ).

yeah cool! I forgot that I put these files here. Nice expansion on that! I now wished the images were sharp, but to judge the noise it's not necessary

Well done and thanks for sharing!

What is the "other program"?

It can open files without embedded profiles.

Handy if you want to see how much corrections were applied and gain some of the frame that is lost when the image is straighten. You have to correct it yourself afterwards though

Base ISO is 100 !
EDIT: by base I also mean Native

I don't know what the native ISO is, but yes, in my experience you'll immediately get a greater noise floor going anywhere over ISO100.

The base iso is 100 anything higher gets grainy solution is just use neat video to clean up the grain

Not that obvious my friend most of this sensors has 400 or 500 iso as native.
