EDIT! 1.2

Have not been flying for a while... Due to bad weather and busy with other things. Try to revive this post so peeps can see what we all make. Feel free to post some of your own work in the comments! This way you can get tips etc. to make your vids even better.

Thanks have a great day peeps!

EDIT! 1.1


I made a short video in the same sort of vibe. Was learning my sister how to drive a motorcycle and got my Mavic on me. Why not shoot a bit right?
take a peek its just a very short video.



EDIT! 1.0

I see that a lot of you actually started posting own material. Feel free to post your own work. This way we get to see each others work and can help eachother out by giving tips! I already started by posting mine below!


Hi,

So between al the post about your Mavics comming in late or trouble even ordering this piece of greatness i thought you guys may wanted to see some footage. I made this short film in the past 3 days just real quick. I know its far from perfect and im in for learning about film making and drone flying. I know i have to use tap to focus more so some of the fragments are less sharp than others.

I usually make motorcycle related stuff but with the Mavic im planning to do much more. If you like to see more stuff or if you like the little film i made, you are welcome to support me by subscribing to my YouTube channel. You can check out my previous videos if you are intrested in motorcycles and fooling around.

PS. This is a follow up from a previous post i made 2 days ago. The video is now done! Let me know what you guys think! The vid may need some time to let it show in 4k.

Cheers!

Wow, I really enjoyed this video, Virgil. The Mavic and Motorcycles just go together (no pun intended)! Throw the Mavic in your backpack and head out for a day of filming and riding. Could you provide the name of the software you are using for the editing process? I really like when the visual switched from standard to that 3D/Blurry effect. Also, your Canon 6D shots are great, which lens were you using?

As an experienced photographer (I say that not to brag, but so you know I'm not a newb) I would offer a couple of suggestions. First, instruct your subject (the other rider) not to be looking around for the drone; just have them ride like normal. When they look for the drone, it removes the immersion effect. Second, maybe try to rig a handlebar mount for your Mavic controller, so it's not obvious you are the one filming when you're the subject of the shot?

Keep up the great work; I look forward to seeing more!

Thanks for your feedback! To begin with im not a professional photographer im doing this for fun and trying to get better at it. As shown above i use a conon 6d with a 16-35 f/2.8L lens and a 50mm f/1.4 lens. When you watch the video and near the end stop the video at the rapid image flashing effect you can see some nice stills. I know when the rider is watching the drone the effect goes away and i try to avoid this in the future.

I use a mac so easy rout to go with final cut pro X. Some color grading and for the blurr effect i used the pre installed prism effect.

My videos will get better with the help and tips you give!

Thanks and cheers!

I used to have the 1,300 V-Star and that had plenty of power. This one is only a 950 but it has a Vance & Hines exhaust and Cobra Power Pro tuner and it does ok.
I've had many bikes over the years and my favorite was the Ducati 748s.

My house butts up to the hills and there's a biker bar about 20 minutes into the hills.
It's beautiful scenery and lots of nice curves. I usually ride out there and turn around and come home and I do that several times a week, it's just so relaxing

I'm from BE, so I'm allowed to bitch on NL (it is a cultural thing :p )

Liked the movie, but... Notes to take for your next video.

* The beat-bouncing was a nice thing in the beginning, but became annoying because it kept going till the end. It is distracting as I started to look at the black bars where i see the pixels bounce.
* Saturation issues. Some shots have nice grass, other have over-saturated grass. Try to match it next time, will make it more consistent.
* Don't forget to focus after each shot. If a shot is bad, don't use it in a video,even when it was a nice shot, out of focus = in the bin, how sad it can be. It is better not to have it in. (I'm a professional photographer and had to do it more then once )
* Also try to avoid moving from your line while taking a shot, like fly closer to a subject and then fly back again. This makes it less cinematic. Or when when flying sideways, not to go up and down in the same shot. Try to keep the same line. It will improve all your shots and movie.

Btw, these are things I have seen in other videos (on youtube e.g.) also and took note myself on what not to do, what is distracting for me. Just sharing. You will improve by editing and flying more.

Virgil,

I predict it will only get better. Dope helmet. What kind is it?

I want to do something similar with my red 2014 bmw f700gs and the Mavic I ordered.

This is just a rough run that my ex girlfriend shot on the back of my bike.
Obviously its a bit shakey, out of focus at times and plainly ameture. I tried to coach her on smooth movement with the camera when off the bike.
I would think a gimble would have helped with the shakey videography on and off the bike.

I have a gopro hero 4 silver I am going to mount to my helmet much like your set up.

Very nice! The bmw is very nice. Hope to drive a gs1200 when the time is right to trade in my duke. For the shaky footage you could indeed use a gimble or maybe fix it in software with stable feature.

Gonna make more like these jn the future and gonna aply the tips from everybody
