Would it be possible for DJI to increase video bitrate to maybe 80Mb like doubled through inventual firmware update for even better video quality ?  I know they wont do 4K because of Mavic mini price or even of its circuitry limitations !?

Don't know about 2.7K but 1080p is pixel sharp like an exacto knife. They've done a wonderful job w/ encoder for the low bitrate they're using.

The max video Bitrate of Mavic Mini camera is 40 Mbps, we don't think it will be increased at the moment because it is a entry-level drone, it supports up to 2.7 K but your need will be forwarded to our engineers for attention.

I have difficulty understanding why you want that when there are more pressing issues around the mini, like being able to read the top of screen?

40 mBits is enough for 2.7K. There is a problem with excessive digital sharpness of the video image. In professional world we usually kill digital sharpening to 0 and add it in post-production. Digital sharpening adds a lot of fake details and 40mBit can be not enough in this situation. I hope one day DJI will add control over sharpness as well as manual video controls. I love quality of DJI Spark's image it's was very plausible, no fake details and halos at the edges.

I do not understand how SD bitrate will increase video quality as it is already enought for the 2.7K max resolution of the mini ?

Because the existence of other issues does not invalidate this one. Also, the best thing to do is inform DJI of all the errors and bad stuff we find, no matter how small or insignificant, so that they can make it better and better overtime  with software updates, and also fix other stuff in the possibly upcoming 2nd generation

I'd say you can clearly see some weird stuff in the image when moving a lot using 2.7k. Things like the video being way too blurry

The Ambarella processor used in the mini is capable of 4k. They didn't add it as it had overheating issues. There is no fan in the mini, it uses the grills underneath it to cool itself.
