Well now that we know it uses the Ambarella H3 processor, we know it has more than enough processing power to correct the lens distortion.

They could, but on the other hand you can argue why bother as its such a quick post fix (and it only affects footage that must be post processed)

In many cases i agree with your posts but following the discussion about this topic it feels you flip your position on this quite often ;-)
And as posted more than ones ... it is only "quick" AND acceptable if you have the right correction profile AND it fits in your host application and production workflow. Using the build in optical compensation in after effects for example can make it BETTER and maybe acceptable for GoPro footage but not good enough considering the level of quality i want to achieve with 10bit footage coming out of this hasselblad camera. At this level and price point i want spot on correction. You can say it's easy and accaptable for you but you can't generalize it.

Our apologies for the confusion. To clarify this concern, the video captured in the DLOG-M and HLG color modes is uniformly encoded using 10bits H.265 for greater post-processing space. But 10bits video cannot complete distortion correction in the aircraft directly, it needs to be post-processed.There is much software that supports distortion correction, therefore, we recommend you to solve it by themselves. If users want an image that is not distorted too much, recommend users use the normal color mode for video shooting. Thanks for your understanding.

It supposed to be mentioned along your advertising 10-bit Dlog-M color profile

What about other color modes for the Mavic 2 Pro such as D-Cinelike? Are they going to be adding them? Or are we only stuck with "normal"?

Exactly!!!! Nice flat color profile. Otherwise it reminds me GoPro3

Thank you for trying to clarify your position on this issue ... but sadly you don't. As far as my knowledge goes it can. It has absolutly nothing to do with the color space or log mode. I would be satisfied to hear a proper explaination why it is not possible on this particular camera. That coudn't be so hard and i would openly accept the added workflow on my setup. Apart from this ... why don't you answer on the requests for a proper correction profile for this particular lens so we can match the desired quality in post. You can get it for almost any dslr-lens to get a spot on correction. That also can't be so difficult.

And to make it clear ... i bought this drone mainly because of the advertised image quality and i don't wan't the normal mode. If it was for me ... that could be deleted.

This contradicts what DJI Natalia has stated (a few times now) that your engineers are aware of this and are fixing the problem.

Please don't post here unless you are better informed than the average consumer, which you should be.

Have a look at DJI Wanda's screen shot response in the first post of this thread; she's stated that engineers are working to correct several times in multiple forums already...

Sorry my bad, it was DJI Wanda and not Natalia...

Unlike hallmark007's post, I do apologize when I see I'm in error clearly. Hallmark007 on the other hand will NEVER admit when he's wrong.

I don't really think it's them making fun of us, but if you look at their responses, often they are completely canned / scripted responses, and they often don't even understand the OP's question, because their responses are completely irrelevant to what was asked...

Hopefully there will be some more color profiles soon.

To my knowledge, a colour profile (LUT) doesn't contain lens distortion correction...

If you're a Final Cut Pro X user like me, the only thing I can see for now, is to download Alex4D's Wide Angle Fix plugin, which is now free:

http://alex4d.com/final_cut_plugins/alex4d-free-2/item/7-alex4d-wide-angle-fix-effect

This would seem to negate the barrel distortion, but it's no excuse for DJI not to enable this in the M2...

Excellent point. It is really strange. the Ambarella H3 can do 8K30fps and 4K120fps (although in h264) but I would expect it can handle this...

Let's not forget YOU got banned in 2017 for TROLLING as well...

Seems to me TommyGA is OK, and since he hasn't been a jerk to anyone, or me (unlike you) and I've just started conversing with him, I'll give him the full benefit of the doubt until proven otherwise.

I haven't seen this documented anywhere...

Do you have a source for this anywhere I could look up? I'm in IT and am curious about things like this

Absolutely!  Here's the chip being used:

Hi Tommy,

Thanks for the info, but do you have a source referencing this chip actually being used in the new M2 line? I don't see any mention of DJI or Mavic in the links you provided.

Cheers

Here's the M2 core board - it shows the H3. That's good news that they are using such a good chip.  They did a good teardown in the DJI reverse engineering slack group that I'm a part of.

Im a member there as well. Only been on it a couple of times.

Off to do some reading.

Thanks for reminder.

Maybe the chip can do it but what about extra heat? We don't know anything about how this thing works. Clearly, DJI made an intentional decision and not just an oversight. The fix is simple and free, and you can make a 1 click preset that adds the distortion correction and a Dlog-M LUT simultaneously. No extra work.
