I've been doing photography for 20 years now, and I've owned at least 10 cameras. My current DSLR is the 5DMarkIV. Still... whenever I take aerial shots with the Mavic 2 I'm thoroughly impressed, especially with low-light performance. It even manages to keep still while taker longer exposure shots. It was extremely difficult getting this kind of shot on the original Mavic.

Try out Hyperlight at night. Late at night. And if you manually dial in 400 ISO, you’ll get some neat shots. Pan up 10 or 15 degrees and try out a 400 ISO Hyperlight.  It’s exciting!

Haven't tried Hyperlight yet, I'm assuming it's software correction, like a filter?

Yes, it is a processed image with a JPEG output. Equates to about 7.5MB file size. But the results are impressive. I usually loathe JPEG and just shoot RAW & use Lightroom like everyone else.

I’m still experimenting with it, but maybe ISO 200 will be the sweet spot. ISO 400 is super interesting, but it seems to capture a reddish band along the top of the image.

As a Part 107 pilot, I can only can fly during daylight or in twilight (30 minutes before official sunrise to 30 minutes after official sunset,
local time). I would love to be able to take night'ish photo's like this.
Can you clarify if any of these photo's were taken during that time for
your area?

Thanks!  

And beautiful photo's!

John

This is about 25 minutes after sunset. One thing that helped a lot is that this city is nestled in a valley, so it gets darker here much quicker.
You can also wait for a cloudy day, which will make it darker much quicker.

That is good info.

Thanks for clarifying this for me!
