Here's a short video showcasing the zoom feature and a Hyperlapse.  
Zoom Feature:  Went out to take another look at an Osprey nest in the NJ Meadowlands.  Nest looked empty but towards the end you see a full grown Osprey circling my M2 Z.  Turned around and hightailed it out of there.  


Hyperlapse:  This is an 8 second hyperlapse video  Actually my second attempt.  During my first attempt I was using yaw thinking it would make it better.  Finished product made me realize I didn't take into account how my stick movements would be superfast in the rendered video.  

BTW, during my second battery I noticed the feed to my Ipad was getting very laggy.  At one point the Go4 app crashed.  First time that's ever happened to me.  Restarted the app and reconnected to the M2 Z, brought it back to me, landed and shut everything down and started over again.  Had no more issues the rest of that battery and one more battery after that.  

Enjoy!

That zoom feature is amazing. Pity it could not be incorporated with the MP2......

Very nice Duke. I had a wedge tail eagle fly under me today, very intimidating, but he/she left the drone alone. A magpie yesterday did try to swoop the drone, but no contact, the magpie persisted til I landed.

Was that 2x zoom?

Probably could have combined both features, Zoom & 1" sensor, into one Mavic but the cost would have sky rocketed.  Maybe that is what the Mavic 2 Enterprise will be.

Yes, 2X Zoom.  Haven't figured out to get the 4X Zoom.  I was shooting in 1080P, the extra 2X digital zoom is not available in 4K mode.  I don't know if the extra 2X is incorporated into the scroll wheel.  I had a digital camera that had digitial zoom on top of the optical zoom.  It would zoom until it reached it's optical  ceiling and then I would have to hit the zoom wheel again to go to the digital zoom.  I didn't notice that in the M2 Z.  Will have to do some research on that.

Nice to see.
I especially like the old railway, although it seems not in use.

This was the eagle that flew under me... About a 1.5m wingspan.
