I thought I would start this thread and get an early jump start on the mini 3's feature requests.

DJI Please Add a Video Profile, you have answered our cries from the mini 1 and have outdone yourself, but for the mini 2 to be truly the Swiss army knife of entry level drones were desperately lacking a D-Cinelike, D-log, Video profile to unlock the full potential of our 4k Video Capture.

With the addition of a Cinelike Profile the Mini 2's camera capabilities will bar none be the best in it's class.


Thank you, your customers.

The Mini 2 may not have the onboard processing capabilities to support these Video types.  Hopefully the Mini 2 was engineered to have these features added.

Of course, Just Like Raw, and, Zoom, and Pano, and AEB, and HDR we will be happy to port All Our Software Improvements over to the mini 1 as a Thank you for being a loyal DJI Customer....

At least the mini 3 will have Video profiles, HDR 10bit, 1080p 120fps, 720p 240.

Honestly I am not sure if it needs any onboard processing capabilities higher than applying color correction to currently captured video (and I can ensure you that video which is recorded now on Mini 2 is after very heavy color correction).

Agreed. I think it would probably need less power to do D-Cinelike. I would also use this if it was provided. What I would really like is the addition of profile adjustments so I could turn down sharpness a tad on videos.

Next year, Mini 3 will have it. They are like Apple holding back features for future products... they could have added raw and 4k to the original mini but held back.

Guy's can we keep it on topic please, when the mini 1 released everyone was to busy crying about Active track instead of Raw, they used the one feature a lot of us could of actually used was now used as a selling point for the mini 2. Don't let DJI money grub us, Video Profiles shouldn't be a selling point, it should be an existing feature of the camera.

Please bump this thread so DJI know's not to Nickle and Dime us when these features should be present in the current mini 2.

Only add log in combination with higher bitrates and/or bitdepth. I do feel not adding log is smart for this drone.... it's the entry level drone. The picture coming from it is pretty impressive and I'm sure with log I can improve the output. But focussing on the ease of use and getting straight out of cam a more than decent clip is what the majority of buyers need I guess with this device. Besides that I'm also for the old panasonic system: small payed upgade to get log (in the consumer/prosumer range). That way it gets in the hands of people that know or want to learn how to work with it and keeps it far away of users that can only harm their experience and protects the 'output' of the device for DJI (noobs can put out a lot of bad video that can hurt the general publics image of a product).

I don't think. Mini deliveries a liner curve. Easy to calcolate. D-Cine needs a logarithmic curve to elaborate colors and luma before save footages. D-cine or D-log aren't raw data. they must be elaborate, like linear curve, but with a different approach

Well it's been nearly 5 months to date since making this thread, If I've learned anything from the mavic mini is that this feature request is dead. It's not coming to the mini 2 but DJI for sure added it to the mini 3's list of new features. Be ready to pick up your portable cinema starter drone for only 599 with features like D-log, Raw video, 4k60, 2.7k 120, 1080p240fps slowmow and now O/A but still only Virtual Stick Waypoints.

If DJI's smart the new motion controller will work with the mini 3, super compact/portable "Real Flight" like flying experience.

Can't wait for Oct's Mini 3 announcement.

It's a shame as at least one profile (D-cinelike?) would make colour grading across footage shot with more than one drone much easier.

It really is, I made this request AT LAUNCH hoping it would be one of the first / top of the list items but as I've learned, DJI doesn't add things like this past launch. What the drone releases with is what they only plan to support, Any features like D-cinelike, Raw, more quick shots etc are all ignored because none of those features were designed to ship with the drone so they won't be added after the fact.


Quick shot example: (drone comes with 5 default, you ask for X quickshot to be added, you'll get ignored because the drone was only designed to have 5. If they designed the drone to have 6 and only shipped with 5 then in a later fw update you would see the 6th added because support was always planned.) Another example:  (Manual camera controls on the mini 1, it was designed to have this but didn't have support at launch (Wasn't ready yet) and when it was they released it, but it wasn't a "new feature" it was something they had already planned on shipping with it.) This is why we haven't seen a single quickshot, camera feature be added after the fact as they weren't planned to be supported from the start.


DJI refuses to listen to it's customers when we find actual Drone damaging issues, our requests for simple features to prevent drone loss are ignored, so I don't count on DJI actually doing anything for its customers that it didn't plan to provide prior.

"We find actual Drone damaging issues, our requests for simple features to prevent drone loss are ignored"

Popular forum member JJB* found with the mini 1 and 2 that if flying at a low height while travailing down an incline the drone will begin to auto land despite still being instructed to  be moving. Countless forum members have lost there drone due to this "feature", pilots unaware that the drone behaves on it's own like this when flying close to the ground.

JJB asked for this to be fixed somehow, I posted in the tread asking for a simple switch to disable landing protection, IGNORED!!

Popular 3rd party Warranty Voiding app Litchi has this feature and once toggled, you can switch back to the DJI FLY app and Landing Protection will still be DISABLED on the drone meaning you can fly as low as you like without worry the drone will try to land itself. DJI could very well add this feature to it's FLY APP but do they honestly care? ...

I also voted for the color profile, but DJI will never add it to the Mini 2 because it gets too close to the Air 2 from a marketing perspective.
Remeber DJI is quite a big company, adding features just because a couple (75) users want it is not how the firmware development works. And hey we allready got 2.7k@60 so they are doing something ;)

This is so funny - The video you get is already processed by a LUT set by DJI.
The only thing that DJI needs to do is add a LUT with a flatter picture profile (less contrast and  less saturation) to the recording.

Yes it is really that simple and would basically only require 5 minutes of work to have it implemented.

It's a bit more complicated but getting a log image from this tiny sensor would make no sense in 8 bit. Only add it if you can do it in 10bit. And that is not what this drone is capable of I'm afraid. Also this is the most basic of drones to startout with... choosing to not add more settings and focus on an image that look 'good' right away is a smart choice.

RAW Video is not coming to any of these DJI consumer drones. The speed performance required far exceeds the capability of any normal SD card. It would require a pro level SD card where the cost of the card would be over 100 dollars per card.

I can record raw video on a cheap rebel t5 with magic lantern at 12 bits... Of course only at 1080 but quality is more nice than DJI mini 2 at 8bits 4k.
With the same sd ... And yes, only record 3 minutes, but 3 high quality minutes very easy for color grading...

I agree on the D-Cinelike thing since it doesn't require much more of processing power. 4K 100Mbps + D-Cinelike 8bit can be really a huge plus.

Not quite true, If i remember correctly, the P4P v2 came out with some new shots and V1 users requested these and they were added to V1 users too
