Starburst effect with Mavic 2 Pro
Directly photographing the sun is rarely a good solution. With the new possibilities offered by the adjustable aperture of Mavic 2 Pro (also possible with Phantom 4 pro or Inspire series), you can make this handicap a chance.

Diffraction and the starburst effect change the circle of light to a very nice star.
Starburst effect can add a magical touch to a photograph, specially in landscape pictures.

Change the aperture
To obtain this optical phenomenon, close the aperture as high as possible: with f11, the effect will be more visible than f8. The higher the aperture the larger the ray will be.


The best moment for the sun


The first or last minutes of the sun are the best moments for this. The sun can be partially blocked with another object (tree, mountain, horizon, building…). Play with the frontground and the sun!
Respect the time of sunrise or sunset, With a full sun, you can dammaged your device.




Touch the sun !
Sunrays are now magic with the Mavic family!




Use RAW
Do not hesitate to use RAW format. You will have more details in the dark frontgroud

HOLY MACARENA....... Awesome!  Thank you for sharing the details!

I would think you don't want to be pointed directly at the sun for too long?  Maybe a few seconds at a time?  I don't know.....but I'd hate to destroy the sensor staying too long ...... suggestions?

Thank you,
Randy

Those are awesome shots, but would you not get more clear images from our M2P at f4 then add the sunburst in post? At f11 the M2P images can be a mess.
