I just returned from a week of diving around Komod Island in Indonesia. Brought along my Mavic and mixed it with some underwater footage to put together highlights of the week.


Enjoy!

That's a beautiful video!  Nice flying and diving footage.  What were your video settings for the Mavic?

I used 1080P30, auto exposure, vivid. Frame rate was taken up to 60fps (to match the underwater video) using FCPX.

Nice voiceover too, you could narrate tv shows!

The komodo dragons look a lot more friendly in your video than seen in nature films. Looks like a lot of fun.

Wow ! Great video, what a life.
Having George (Clooney) do the voice over was a real bonus.

I thought the quality is really bad when you use 1080 60fps with the Mavic?

Thanks for sharing your video and your camera settings.  But still so many questions.....

Did you use any filters or polarization lens during the aerial footage?  Or did you do much color grading in post?

Thanks again for sharing.  Really well done......

No filters on the Mavic. I did a small amount of exposure adjustment on one or two clips, most are straight off the Mavic.

It is, that's why I shoot 1080P30 and then let FCPX take it up to 60fps with it's optical flow setting.

Booked a week on the Info Aggressor, it's a liveaboard dive boat that sails around Komodo and Bali. We lived on the boat for the week.

Amazing.. I've always been a big fan of the Komodo dragon. I have some really great photos from a zoo trip we took. It is on my bucket list to someday do exactly the same thing. Diving and some awesome photography of those majestic dragons.

That was so good to watch,  and is that your voice doing the VO, my guess is you do VO for  job and if not you should, two thumbs up.
