Filming hang-gliders with new Mavic 2 PRO.
Actually it was 1st time when I fly new Mavic so this can be not so perfect. Also gimbal wasn't smooth (settings out of box). Didn't had time to go through all settings.
Try my best to make it smooth as possible.

Closer than i'd like.  Were they aware of you?
The movements aren't that bad to me - obviously can fine tune but for out of the box thats not bad at all.

It shows how much better the dynamic range of the camera is as well shooting directly into the light.  Huge improvement.

Also shows the clear curved horizon sadly too!

What sharpening settings, log settings etc are you using?

Nice pic. It looks like you around 3000 feet AGL with the earth curve distortion.

Nice clear and steady footage. Particularly liked the part near the end where the glider went off screen left and the birds came in right over the marina. On my 27" HD monitor, that looked sweet. Nice job.

Very very nice!  Especially liked the 'closing' shot' of the aircraft fading to the left -an into-the-sunset- kind of shot.  Editing and your selection of music was perfect.  Keep it up :-)

Thank you. Yes, closing shot my favourite too   

Like new Mavic. Hope some bugs like lens distortion in D-LOG will be fixed.

i think it's quite stupid to do your first flight near other aircrafts.

It is not my 1st flight with drones at all. You can look at my Flight distance for example except big experience with FPV drones etc.
If you talk about 1st flight with Mavic 2 than I made 1st too batteries flight away from others. I don't think that if I flew with Mavic more batteries it would change something. Also I was flying behind them and I knew their flying path. So I was totally knowing what I am doing.
But anyway thank you for your opinion.
