    New pilot - Hi from San Diego

    .........you're luckier than me my friend! I was sitting close to the bridge by Torrey Pines Beach (where the water from the lagoon runs under).....and had had 2 people TELL ME, it's a "no drone zone" and they were calling the life gaurds! I said I thought that it's just no fly zone by the...

    New pilot - Hi from San Diego

    I have a similar video but from "the other side" ....on the eastern edge of SantaLuz. I launched close to those fields where the baseball park is at the base of black mountain and then I fly west along the canyon.....I can get a couple miles out there! Ping me of you're flying there one of these...

    New pilot - Hi from San Diego

    Nathan, I'm 5 minutes from that lagoon...is that the one by the race track ..... both sides of the 5 ? Where do you launch from when you fly there.....I'm looking for a "secluded" spot where nobody bugs me! I launched once from this parking lot, adjacent to the preserve, and I got some very...

    DJI Goggles or DJI Spark ?

    See if you can get a friends goggles to "try" first ....... and then see if you get that emotional response. I'd try that first before dropping 450! I wish i was in NYC, you could try mine anytime, but you'd have to fly clear across the lower 48 to SoCal !

    DJI Goggles or DJI Spark ?

    Scott, your point re making you better at the videography portion of your experience, I'm really not sure whether the goggles will help ? I do like the fact in the "gimbal tracking" mode that you can LOOK in a certain direction and place, and the gimbal will follow, but.......not sure if that...

    DJI Goggles or DJI Spark ?

    I own the goggles, and have used them extensively in the past 3 weeks. As you said, an amazing piece of tech, and even though they're a little clunky, they work well and the image is gorgeous. However ........ if I had it to do all over again, I wouldn't buy them and here's why. They're a "nice...

    Help - Video "aliasing" or Pixelation ?...

    Michael, no I did not try tap focus, I have always only used auto focus so maybe next time will try that suggestion instead. I agree with you that maybe some of this can be fixed in post processing, but I'd like to get as quality an image as I can directly first go around.

    Help - Video "aliasing" or Pixelation ?...

    Thanks Shawn, I'll try that and report back if there is improvement. Thanks for responding!

    Help - Video "aliasing" or Pixelation ?...

    sooo........ Is this something that's my "fault" as a bad operator .... or is this a "send back to DJI" type event ? I'm just not sure, hence my question, Is this just like all mavic's (this is the best quality they produce), or is there maybe something wrong with mine?

    CardPlayer, i read your very interesting response to a question about the dreaded "watercolor effect". Please see my my thread below and question as I'm flying with a ND32 trying to "force" a 1/60s shutter speed. So you're suggesting I rather bump the ISO to 200 and take off the filter ? thanks...

    Help - Video "aliasing" or Pixelation ?...

    MP Pilots, looking for your honest thoughts here .... (no post processing, 2.7k @ 30fps, 1/60s, +1 sharpening, ND32 filter) Please review the video below..especially between : 20 seconds and 40 seconds Look carefully at the grass hill on the left hand side. Why is there no detail?, and it...

    Light leaks, anyone?

    @dcpmark I know its weird but I like to keep the back-strap part of the goggles very "low" at the back of my head. So I don't wear the head strap like a "halo" or head-band, the actual best fit for me is very low, almost at the base of the skull if that makes sense ? ....this was the only way I...
