Looks like Phillip Bloom may have had some success...

Tripod mode coming! Hopefully to Mini 3 too

I have never understood why there is a cine / tripod mode, as depending on the stick input it can be flown very smooth, especially since the EXPO settings adjustment has been implemeted.

Not everyone is so dexterous. I can manage to fly very slow and steady in normal mode its more about experience and time spent.

I normally use stills but there are some very talented flyers on this forum and Mavicpilots that have shown video that is effectively a still image but the drone is moving very slowly through the shot. I find that a really powerful way to portray something. You have that classic "composition" of a still but your shot isn't static so feels more "alive" if you will.  Really like that. This update would be perfect for that.

Hello DJI do you think you will apply this to the Mini 3 Pro?  We really hope so!

Thanks DJI Paladin hopefully your engineers are well aware of the Petition by Phillip Bloom and are already looking at this. Fingers crossed!

There will be a lot of happy film makers if this happens. Phillip Bloom has rubber bands all over his Mavic 3 controller  to create a similar effect but not quite the same :-)  And damn it I just ordered some of these yesterday...

Cine Mode was never a substitute for Tripod Mode.

+1 for Phillip and all of us who have missed it for so long.

From memory Tripod mode = 1mtr per sec. Cine mode - 5 mtr per sec. Tripod mode should never been removed in my opinion.

Tripod mode was always slower, and if it was adjustable that would be the icing on the cake

People get too caught up in the name "tripod" vs. Cine.  To DJI, its just a name change.  What we need is adjustable speed Cine mode!  Just slowing Cine down from 5 m/s to 1m/s  like some of the previous drones had is not what I want.  I want what the Mavic 2 drones had that give you the ability to easily change the max speed on the main screen for horizontal, vertical, and yaw movements when in Tripod/Cine mode.  This was one of the best features of the Mavic 2 drones that many people didn't know existed and one of my most missed features in the Mavic 3.  I hope Philip is right and DJI are going to be implementing it.

Yes, if you are perfect on your sticks, you can get some great cinematic shots in a slow speed.  But the Mavic 2's feature that allowed you to adjust the speed of horizontal, vertical, and yaw movements anywhere from crazy super slow to pretty close to normal mode speed made it so that you could dial it in exactly like you wanted and so that one tiny bobble in stick movement wouldn't ruin your shot.  

Unless you shoot video and have utilized this feature, you may not understand why many of us miss it so much!  I really do hope DJI has finally listened to us and will be implementing this feature ASAP!

I don't think the P4P had that capability.  I never had the P4P, so I won't say definitively, but I'm pretty sure it did not have the adjustable speed capability that the Mavic 2 had in its Tripod mode.  And definitely none of the other DJI consumer level drones Mavic 1, Spark, or any iteration of Mini or Air drones has had the adjustable speed capability that the Mavic 2 had.

I suspect anything that uses the fly app would get it just like the exp settings they recently added.

My P4A does not have the option in Go4. It is all dexterity and muscle memory, and of course my Bestem Skull Knobs.

I've had Tripod mode in I believe it was the original Mavic Pro which I just sold last week. I had the Mavic since the end of 2017 and never wrecked and the poor guy that bought it from me last week, lost it up in a tree and he never did find it. I felt kind of sorry for the late teen boy and I even helped search for it right where he lost sight of it and right where the "find my drone" said it was. No luck! I brought the Mavic 3 with me but for some reason, the Mavic 3 wasn't flying right at all so I had to bring it back down very carefully. It's like it wasn't obeying my commands. Never had that happen before and this was right after updating to the latest firmware on the afternoon of June 1st. I then proceeded to bring out the Air 2 S with no issues but still couldn't find the Drone.
I came back home roughly 40 miles away and immediately set up the Mavic 3 in my backyard to see if the issues persisted but the Mavic 3 flew perfectly. I'm wondering now if the young man living in close proximity to Scott Air Force Base in Illinois, had anything to do with it? I did not notice any warnings but it was kind of scary and had to basically fly backwards to me because it wasn't moving left or right well at all.
By the way, I asked the young man if he waited until the home point was recorded and he said that he did. He told me that it just flew away by itself and he watched it crash into the tree using the remote/phone. Poor kid

I think that's essentially what we're all looking for, no?  I get frustrated trying to be soft on the sticks and even then it's tough to maintain a consistent low, slow dolly or pan (at least for my caffeinated fingers).

Yeah, its exactly what I'd want. I can control one axis slowly, and more important consistently, pretty well but once I try and add a further complication, not so much
