Hi Guys,

First of all, I'm new to this forum so a BIG HELLO to all of you!

Currently within my collection is my (fantastic) Phantom 3 Pro, and I'm absolutely loving it, and I've been really enjoying it now for around about 10 months. Before owning my Phantom Pro I'd been flying a custom built F550 and a racing drone. But they are (in my mind) no comparison to the Phantom 3 Pro in terms of enjoyment and it's ability to produce content.

Which brings me on to the next thing I'd like to say. I've been experimenting lately with producing a few (complete newbie) drone videos for Youtube, one of which is the below, and I'm really starting to get into it all i.e. the flying, post production/editing etc etc,

Now I know it's early days for me but as a complete novice with clearly a lot to learn I'd really like to get some critique from all of you kind people out there. I know it's a family holiday video etc but what do you think?

I know my colour grading and matching needs massive improvements but in general do you think it's ok from a novice etc??

Let me know your thoughts...

Very good collation of shots, certainly not 'newbie' catagory.

Thanks

Aloha Paul,

     Like Stephen says, "very good collection of shots".  However, I did notice that many of your rotations and faster movements had a perceptible perturbation to them.  There are skill techniques to reduce these to zero and processing techniques to also do so.  It is up to you to figure them out.

     To help you in this endeavor, I have attached a short .pdf that addresses this subject and points you in a good direction.  Nice work.

Aloha and Drone On!

'perturbation', ok - I know nothing about this so your help and guidance is very much appreciated, thank you.

I'll take a look and start researching about it all.

Thank you.

Aloha Paul,

     For lack of a better term, basically, not silky smooth.  We all encounter it and usually have to figure out how to deal with it.

     As seen in the photo of the .pdf, it occurs to me that the information is scant on the processing issues regarding the subject.  I will see if I can dig something up that is more informative.  No need to reinvent the wheel!

Aloha and Drone On!
