Hello everyone! it's been a while since I owned a DJI (my P2V+ flew away). Now I'm back, finally after 2 months of waiting to get my Mavic. Here is my first video done completely with the Mavic pro:




I hope that you like it. Any comments or suggestions are welcome!

Very good!! Some of the nicest smoothest footage I have seen. What settings did you use? Have you adjusted gimbal rates and stick rates? Really really nice!!

Thank you!. I used the same standard settings except allowing the camera to point up (the 30 degree option). I think that there is only a one shot that I did use the camera over the horizontal line. The mavic is smooth enough and very responsive, at least to me (maybe because I'm a gamer + been using the bebop drone for a year lol)

Thank you for sharing your video with us. I liked the variety of shots and only very smooth.....noticed a few spots with vibration or jello effect in the right corner. The tiny gimbal can be less stable in the wind, but I am very happy with my Mavic Pro!

All the best

I wondered if that was an autofocus happening due to a sharp change in distance?

I'd say a bit over a half mile

It was a windy day, I had to post-stabilize few shots, and that was one of them.

I like the clips looking straight down on the river!  By the way, are you in Idaho?  Looks familiar!

They do look close in the video but they really were not close at all. I might have had it zoomed in.

I shot a really nice clip moving up a winding, rocky river here in the Canadian Rockies last week. I came home to review the footage. Just at the point where I begin a nice, sweeping rise in altitude the Mav cut right under a nearly invisible low, overhead power line I couldn't see on my initial recce. (I'm going to be twice as cautious going forward).

not a good idea to takeoff or land so close to a power line buddy

You are right. They really are further than they look though.

What settings did you shoot these in? D-Log or D-Cine or None? -2,-2,-2 ? or something else? What LUT did you do or did you manually adjust RGB curves?

Well done !, However: Take care when you play the movie backwards. From 2:03 the cars and trucks also go backwards ... ;-)

Gut gemacht!, Allerdings: Aufpassen, wenn Du den Film rückwärts abspielst. Ab 2:03 fahren die Autos und Lkw auch rückwärts... ;-)

I very much like the first video from @fans9ee9a982 . Very smooth piloting in combination with very smooth camera control. How did you manage to do both in parallel and yet so smooth? Did you preprogram the flight patch with Litchi?

Cheers

probably in the 20s F ( about -10 C). I didn't spend more than 15 minutes there but I don't remember how much was left

I appreciate your kind words Not really, that's what happens when you throw a controller to a video gamer lol + I've been flying drones for years now and I'm kind of a photo/videographer at the same time.
