Hi!

What is the native iso on Mavic 2 pro (I've read that Inspire is using fixed ISO 500, is it the same for Mavic 2 pro? )

And how can I properly expose for 18% gray card? (I am unable to find a spotmeter under video mode)

Regarding 18% gray, do you need that if you shoot RAW?

Yes you do. No matter if it is raw or not, you still need to properly expose your image.
Based on a middle gray point, on properly exposed image, I can maintain most optimum amount of data for highlights or shadows (depending on situation).

But it's hard to properly expose an image without an ability to sample gray-point.

also... as far as I know Mavic 2 Pro cannot shoot RAW

Roger that. I was thinking color balance.
And of  course, for video, no RAW, but for stills, there is DNG, which is RAW, yes?
Cheers!

ah yes, you're right I haven't done many photos on mavic, already forgot about that!

But anyhow, did anyone did a proper balanced videos on Mavik and could share some info ?

I am just guessing that no user have managed to do it so far, there no responses.
It would be nice to hear from DJI.
I do realize that MavicPRO, although it is &aposRO' it is not meant for pro costumers but an ability to properly expose your image would be a base minimum.
We got d-log curve which is nice but at this point it is just a guess work

The only way to get around this (i'm talking stills)  would be to use the custom white balance (pretty sure it's an option).  Use a separate hand light meter to determine the proper Kelvin and set it on the app accordingly.  If not possible, shoot RAW and adjust in post processing.  If you're concerned about the degrading the image, shoot AEB and merge images to give you a larger file with better dynamic range.

Unfortunately it doesnt support a kelvin or a manually set white balance.

The OP is referring to "Exposure" not white ballance.

The Mavic 2 Pro does have "Custom" white ballance that can be set in 100K (kelvin) increments.

The native ISO for the Mavic 2 Pro is 100. I would not recommend going above 100 unless absolutely needed. It starts getting noisy rather quickly.

For exposure I have two suggestions.

First, there is a "Histogram" that can be turned on in "Camera Settings" that gives a good idea of the current exposure and shadows.

Second, I would also turn on "Overexposed" in "Camera Settings". This places black and white bars on the view screen anywhere data is being lost from overexposure. That allows you to set it as bright as you can without blowing out any highlights or losing shadow detail from underexposure.

Where is the documentation saying its iso100?

Yes it shoots at 100 but that doesnt mean its native.

There is nothing in the manual suggesting 100 is native, but there are a lot of youtube reviews on the hassleblad camera when the pro was first released with tests, that suggest that ISO 100 at F5.6 gives the best results for sharpness, balance and barrel distortion. But there are many different camera tests available, here are a few.

Where is the documentation stating there is no custom white ballance. And the post isnt even about White Ballance. Give me a break....

It sure can. You just need to enable it.

We're not talking white balance.
You stated the native iso is 100.  Based on absolutely no data what-so-ever.
Why did you make that claim?

Lots of us would love to know what the native iso is but have been completely unable to find any specification lists stating it.

You were talking white ballance claiming there is no "custom" white ballance (post#11) of which you were incorrect. You stated that without documentation.

The reason you are not finding data on the Native ISO is because there isnt any provided by DJI for the M2P...
Native ISO is where you get the least noise with the best dynamic range and/or "no amplification". On the M2P that is ISO 100 period. Check the reviews. That is why I stated that "without documentation" (that does not exsist).

I really didnt think I would get picked on for that. I haven't been here for a couple of months because of crap like you. I guess I'll wait a few more months before offering any more assistance...
