    M3P - sphere with 3x (70 mm) in DNG?

    I'm planning to "upgrade" from Phantom 4 Pro to Mavic 3 Pro. I've done some flying with the M3P (a friend has one) and I am quite impressed. I will use it for photography, I will not shoot video. I shoot a lot of panorama, I like 360 panorama and little planets. For those of you that have...

    Processing Mavic 3 Pro images with Capture One

    I am curious if anyone else using the Mavic 3 Pro is having issues with RAW files in Capture One. I have used C1 as my primary raw image processor for years and have used it with older Mavic Pros and the Inspire 2 with no real issues. With the Mavic 3 Pro I am finding that the raw files are not...

    What happened to RAW?

    I flew my MaVic 3 yesterday for the first time in awhile, and the first flight was flawless. At the beginning, it notified me of a firmware update, but got stuck on 1% for awhile so I decided to wait til I got back to WiFi at the rental house. When the first battery ran out, I went back and ran...

    Air 2s Photoshop HDR and Mavic AIR2S - Disappointing results

    I recently upgraded from the Air2 to the Air2S and I have only gotten two flights in. While the verdict is still not in I would like some input from other people that process their images in photoshop raw. I typically have been shooting in AEB mode and processing the photos in Photoshop HDR...

    Why is my RAW image grainy?

    Hi all, I’m new to the scene here and have just started shooting in RAW for post. However, when I have brought them onto my iPad, the images are really grainy, as you can see attached. As far as I’m aware, the ISO was at 100 and I did not have any filter on the lens. I am unable to see how to...

    Central bright zone in raw (DNG) from Mavic Air

    I've hit a roadblock trying to shoot RAW (actually DNG) photos with my Mavic Air : there is a distinct central bright zone, and I have not been able to tame it. (Note: I edit photos with Corel PaintShop Pro 2020. For those unfamiliar, PSP is a poor-man's Photoshop, with a similarly long...

    DNG - is it affected by sharpening settings?

    Has anyone done tests to see if the DNG raw image recorded by the Mavic is affected by the sharpening or noise reduction settings in the same way as video? Obviously being raw it SHOULD be but its already been shown the Mavic does process the DNG image in some cases such as D-log being selected...

    Dng files?

    Hi all New owner here. Had my mavic 3 days and loving it so far. Only problem I'm having is when I've taken a photo in RAW, when I try to download it to my iPhone it saves "original DNG file not available" but I can press another button to save the photo to my phone. Is this because you cannot...

    Processing Mavic DNGs

    I was surprised to see a fair amount noise in the sky in the first DNGs I processed with Adobe Camera Raw. I was concerned that the image quality was not going to be sufficient for my commercial work. However, I processed them again using Phase One's Capture One 10 (The applications I use for...

    Mavic Files - Location and Types

    Does anybody know of a resource that details all of the types of files and their location and purpose? I'm particularly interested in which files would be useful to the common flier vs the unix/linux type person. For Example 1. SD Card on Mavic - DNG, JPG image files, and MOV/MP4 video files...
