A simple video to show that size does not matter when it comes to the content. Also, 2.7k seems to be plenty.

Enjoy!

How do you properly "upscale" footage?

I think a few things

1. It’s not a workhorse. It would not survive a shoot where it was in they sky constantly over a few days. Motors would not hold up, Heat buildup will melt circuits.

It’s a pretty cool toy that will make it fun to use a drone again. I have been using it for 2 days, it won’t cover the distance it says, mine stops transmitting video at about 1800feet. Not work horse material.

Now, instead of the misleading dumb title, the whole thing would have been  great if you posted a title like

“Hey, I’ve got a great video to share”

Or do it your way

Sveiks Reinis!  You captured some beautiful footage of Riga! You are right, size does not matter when it comes to capturing good video footage.

Excellent work. I'm looking forward to learning not only how to fly a drone, but video editing as well. I would be thrilled to be able to produce results like this someday!

Dumb? It's called clickbait. And this isn't the worst one. And I disagree with you. It most definitely can be a workhorse. Just like a phone or a an action camera.

In the end, what matters is the experience itself and most people have 1080p screens anyway and most people won’t be able to tell the difference between an expensive drone or this thing.
Yes in some places this drone shows it’s limitations. But once you have learned those you can start achieving some great stuff. It’s totally usable for pro work. maybe not cinema. Yes. That would look not that good on the big screen.

But for other projects that are not made for the big screen, this is an option for sure!


So it can be a workhorse, in an overexaggerated sense.

In premiere. Right-click on your footage in the sequence - Scale to frame size
