Hi Folks,
I count myself very fortunate that I was one of the chosen few that DJI chose for the Mavic Air trial program.  I will be using this thread to post video, images and my findings about the Mavic Air. I will be posting my unbiased views here and I look forward to sharing my content with you all.
**UPDATE** I am delighted that DJI have choosen to allow me to keep the Mavic Air based on my contributions to the trial programme. I want to say a BIG thank you to DJI for this!!

Please keep checking in as I will be posting much more images and video, as well as my thoughts and comments. Please note that the images are heaviy compressed due to the upload limit being 2mb. At present I only have one flight battery for the Mavic which will limit the amount I can capture. I hop eto get hold of another couple of batteries pretty soon which will help!

I wanted to get the ball rolling by posting an unboxing video.  I hope everybody can understand my accent

Some further images taken with the Mavic Air, both by day and at night. Considering the size of the sensor in this camera I think it performed admirably in difficult conditions.

I think some of the shot is not easy to capture.. you must waiting for long for the right moment. If the moment miss you miss everything

Hi Robert, apologies I could not answer you properly earlier. I was out doing a commercial job today so had my hands full.

The night time photos were taken in manual mode, and my settings were as follows:

ISO: 100
Shutter: 1.3" - this is vaired depending on the shot but images shows were with these settings.
EV: +1.0
White Balance: Custom - adjusted based on lighting conditions. This needs adjusting on the fly.

I would recommend for any video footage you select Cinelike, choose your white balance manually based on the conditions, rather than auto which tends to tends to over compensate and the footage can be blown out - exposure wise. This is not just tied to the Mavic Air, but pretty much any digital camera these days.
All images were post-processed using Adobe Lightroom.

Any questions, plase feel free to ask.

I've been to Australia years ago,  on the east coast from  Townsville  all the way to Adelaide.
I loved it and was almost ready to relocate.

Thanks Robert. I can understand those sentiments myself. We came here in 2010 for a visit and moved here from Ireland in 2012. You should visit Western Australia if you ever get the opportunity. An extremely diverse coastline. Some of the colours are crazy over here. Some of the images on my Instagram or Facebook (@intrepiddrone) will give you an idea of what I mean
