There are people that say the Mavic camera is lacking... yet you're able to get amazing images like this out of it!

Great visuals... great piloting... great editing.  A pleasure to watch.

Did you use a filter for this?

Thanks BuzzCut! No I didn't use any filter and didn't do any color grading for this video, it was just white balance and D-cinelike setup. I'm considering filter but so far from others' video I'm not convinced it's a must yet.

Nice, got it done before the pollution then the stratus arrived. Out of interested, what are you using to smooth the slow pan? DJI Go 4 App doesn't appear to allow tuning of Tripod gimbal rates and I don't fancy changing Normal modes when airborne. Thanks

HK CAD laws that you cannot fly above people...so city flying needs permit.

Even more impressive given no filter or grading

Thanks fans404602c7! I did change the Expo setting for Yaw to 20 I believe, so the yaw movement is slower. Also change the gimbal setting that would smooth out the movement (forgot the name of the setting). You can try changing it then take off without flying high up to get the feel and it would help make it more cinematic a lot!

I took off somewhere in the shopping mall behind the tower. Took me a while find a spot without much people and with open space on top for satellite reception.

The part 1 video I took off from in front of the tower so the 2 are showing different sides of the tower.

Thanks! I set manual exposure so it can be a hit or miss if the sun is bright as I can't see clearly on my iPad mini 2 screen. But manual exposure is better than auto so it won't suddenly change during the clip that I need. I prefer slightly over or under exposed than constantly changing exposure as it can be distracting.

Oh God!
Yes and speeding in a car over the speed limit is dangerous and against the law too so I hope you never do that.Take a chill pill.
