Hi, sorry for the troubles that it caused. I would like to ask if this file is on the SD card or cache file only? Please keep us posted. Thank you.

I would rather suggest you read the manual of your aircraft (which one is it?) and use the original footage that is stored on the SD card of your aircraft and not the cached pictures or videos on your mobile device. No matter which DJI drone you own, it is a highly sophisticated piece of technology that you have to invest some time for to really learn about all of its capabilities. No offense intended!

Might put one of the videos up on YouTube and paste a link here. Also tell us which drone you have and I'm sure folks will point you to some tutorials on how to set up your drone's video settings for better quality.

I'm not sure my amateur advice is going to be of any use.

Why not have conversation on here eh? Post some examples of the issue you are having. Nothing personal but you claim you are a photographer and videographer. Grain and noise are something you really should know all about. Just because you own the kit, doesnt mean you have the skills. What I'm trying to say is, I own a spanner, I can use the spanner. That doesn't make me a mechanic!

You'll need to post some pictures here to get some guidance.  You need to provide lots of info about your equipment, software, firmware, settings, etc.  Otherwise none of us are going to head to your social media account.  We'd rather share our knowledge here.... with other like minded pilots and photographers.

hello to everyone... no, I'm not trying to promote, I just don't use this forum I thought id ask for some advice, but my instagram is the only real social media i use. I couldn't care less if you guys don't look at it but I was asking some advice. i use a mavic pro, my SD card is SanDisk Extreme plus 64GB. i honestly forgot i posed to it on here so sorry for not getting back to you guys.

Also to the guy saying "you may have the gear but not the skill" im currently studying at university so yes I'm learning, yes I'm an amateur, however, I do have basic knowledge but I am a newish drone owner. i simply asked why the footage was grainy (which i would imagine would be due to the wrong camera settings) so was looking for some tips on the picture profile...

Anyway, lordofthefiles sorry I'm new to the forums just thought it would be easier to speak on... I'm on the latest firmware using a Mavic pro (first one) I've been using +1,0,0 and shooting in D-Log I hope this is enough information...

i apologies for not using the thread

There is a little "problem" with sharpness and Grain with the MP. DJI have "included" the NR function in the sharpness setting somehow.

Try to shot in D-Cinelike +1 -1 -1 (Style) and compare the difference.  Post the links to the movies here then you will most likely get some more help

good luck

Details are needed.  What was the ISO setting?  Manual or auto exposure? What were the light levels.

Obviously you ARE aware that D-Log footage is a deliberately flat curve so will need post processing?  It'll come out of the camera looking poor by default as thats the purpose of it.

manual exposure, i kept to the 180 degree rule, i shot 4K 24fps so shutter was 1/60th ISO was 100

its just like the top of houses or anything with lines on them look weird to the Eye. Unfortunately, I don't have the footage anymore
