A quick video shot on the Mavic Pro in 2.7k. I am still trying to find the best camera settings so please feel free to comment on which settings work for you. I shot in DLOG +1,0,0, 30 fps, but am getting significant flicker/lag. Used ND filters and locked at 1/60, iso 100. Any tips? I have tried numerous camera settings and profiles,watched countless hours of videos, and gone through a lot of threads. What camera settings are the absolute best for flicker free, stutter free, quality footage???? Thanks. Please reply soon

Hi there, thank you for reaching out. Regarding your concern, make sure you have the original file from the SD card, not the cached video and may I ask as well what type of Sd card you are using? Make sure you are using the recommend and supported SD card.

One, best and only option does not exist. The best settings will always depend on other things. Where, when, how, etc.

Your problems could be caused by everything between a malfunction of the drone camera, inadequate computer hardware, your choice of video player and last but not least, the choice of video editing software.

With that said, your video doesn't show much without som explanation. It is necessary to point out something specific you think might be a problem for you. For example -

"what I'm talking about is visible between 0.17 and 0.23"
or
"0.17 and 0.23 - is it normal?"

Also remember, it's not a $3000 camera hanging in front of the drone.

I did pay over $1200 for this. It should not flicker. My iPhone se, which was $200 does not flicker. My old hubsan h501 did not flicker. The video stutters and flickers even before editing. It is visible when ascending bear the tree, and in other areas. Not really that hard to notice

Then please link to an unedited clip, and point out exactly what you mean.

Just a thought.  It could be a mismatch of frame rate settings in whatever  video editing software you use.  If there is a mismatch, it will appear as a hicup or studder.  Not saying thats what it is, just a maybe.

Well you done a great job with that video, I also have problems with jerking footage however when I do download onto  a USB flash drive the jerking and flickering disappears, so I have purchased better micro sd cards, might be more expensive but hopefully that problem will no longer be there.
