    Had the Mavic for a few days now, finally got out of work before the sun set. Not the longest or most interesting video, but the Mavic is well worth the wait. Wind gusting 20 knots so was not going to take any chances. Video 2k@25, auto everything.

    My first Mavic flight was on a gusty day too, I could not wait either... I'd guess you focused it about 15 seconds in? Are they not a delight to fly...

    Used the c1 button, which takes a few seconds, but works well. Going to love this baby :)

    Atleast you got some nice clear footage. Seems you forgot to focus in the beginning. Yup that much wind is just asking for trouble.. good job though ..

    Tried to get far field by focusing on sea wall before launch, but was easier to just gat in the air, frame the view, and then focus
    I have enabled the slider, but the button was quick and easy :)
