    Static (grounded) camera stability problem...

    I posted this in the DJI MA forum couple of days ago but could not get any replies. I just wanted to try my luck here, in case there is a solution: Couple of days back I was out for some sunset videos with my camera when I realized that I forgot all my batteries home. I already had the MA in...

    New Guy from Hopefully Mid-west USA

    Hello Mavic Pilots - I'm new to the forum; signed-up to evaluate the M2P before possible purchase; currently own P3P since 2015. the camera, gimbal, sensors, small size and sturdiness of the M2P got my attention. Have already read quite a discussion of the P4P vs M2P regarding the camera and...

    Focus Functionality Question

    Have read a number of discussions on the Mavic Pro series REQUIRING you to tap the screen to focus the camera. Is this truly the case. AND now with the MP2Zoom, is this also the case or does the new feature of autofocus eliminate the need to take that additional step of touching the screen to...

    Mavic Gimbal - Jumping Erratically, Will Not Stabilize

    I was in the mountains yesterday and was going to do some flying, but the camera would not stabilize. Symptoms: Camera slams to the up down limits every 30 seconds or so. On the screen of FPV I kept getting a warning that the gimbal lock was in place, Gimbal Obstructed, but it was not. I tried...

    Area of view at 400 ft.

    Hello all! Does anyone happen to know approximately how much area the Mavic Pro covers at 400ft? I have a project where I am going to monitor traffic patterns and need to figure out how much area I can cover while shooting video. I can test it tonight and measure it on Google Earth if no one...

    Mavic Camera Blur Bug, one solution that works for me

    You are all ready to go, the light is perfect, the sky and landscape look amazing but when your Mavic booted up there's weird blur, like the kind used to do a miniature effect with tilt shift lenses. You follow the guidelines and forum suggestions of resetting the camera, re-calibrating...

    Camera vibration

    My Mavic's gimbal and camera suddenly started to go nuts on start up, this would stop and then repeat every 30 secs or so (my Mavic has never had any crashes or hard landings and has only been flown about 8 times) I replaced the ribbon and put it all back together and it appeared to fix it...

Crash from a great height a few months ago... replaced the following 1. Both arms on the right side (front and back) 2. Gimbal shock plate Afterwards I occasionally got...

    D-Cinelike turned off in Quickshot mode

    Has anyone else experienced the D-Cinelike profile being switched to standard when a Quickshot is initiated? This is with a Mavic Air.

    Mavic Pro camera

    Hi All Sorry this is my first post but I've been searching the web to find a problem similar to mine and have had no success, I use my mavic pro recreationally but also for a few commercial jobs both video and mapping. I've had it for over a year now and it's been working well aside from a few...

    Getting a '3/4' tracking shot / horizontal tilting?

    Hello I have just bought a Mavic Air, I have flown it a bit, and see it can tilt up and down, but is it possible to tilt just the camera horizontally, to get a 3/4 shot? At the moment, when I turn it, the whole unit turns, changing the flight path to match the turn, I want the same flight path...

    Gimbal and Camera control lost midflight

    Hi, I have a DJI Mavic Pro. Recently I have started facing an issue with the gimbal and the camera. While flying I am losing the control of the gimbal and camera control. This is an intermittent issue. Using the dial I cannot control the gimbal. Also the details of the camera aperture, shutter...

    Are your Mavic Air Videos Sharp or Blurry?

    I'm a potential Mavic Air owner, very interested for when the P4P is too large to lug around. I've got a problem with my P4Pro Obsidian sharpness settings when recording 1080p video. They're all the same and I'm hoping the Mavic Air doesn't have a similar problem. The jury is out on whether...

    Mavic Air - Lens distortion (creating awareness!)

    Hi all, In another thread, a group of Mavic Air users including me found out that the lens on the Mavic Air has some pretty severe distortion when shooting in JPEG or shooting video's. Some examples: YouTube - You can clearly see the 'waving'/'warping' distortion during panning on the roof...

    A couple of oddities need answers.

    I went down to the bay today to work on my fairly weak photography skills, and two new problems came up. First, the controller icon at the top of the screen was flashing on and off, just a regular beat. It didn't see to affect the flight, so I kept going. Secondly, I switched to active track and...

    What are these lines in my video?

    I think these might be shadows of the propellers on the camera? They went away when I changed direction away from the sun. Do we need some kind of lens hood for the camera? 15 second long 4k video. 56 MB. Prop Shadow.mp4

    Gimbal and Camera Issues

    So I just replaced my vibration plate (broken rubber band) and camera with gimbal (broken camera/strip). After installing both the new parts, I took it out to try it out. Immediately I noticed a few issues: The camera was at about a 35 to 45 degree angle, but after I recalibrated the gimbal it...
