    Mini 3 The night belongs to Mini 3 Pro

    Mini 3 Pro has turned out to be the exact drone I was waiting for and more. I didn not expect that finally I will be able to get a great quality video not only during the day but after the sunset as well. I'm quite happy with the way this video turned out but let me know what you think. The...

    3 4th of July fireworks

    Flew the Mavic 3 at sunset on the 4th to film fireworks (Landed before it got fully dark). The Mavic 3 handles low light conditions way better than any other drone I've used, even the super zoom camera managed to deliver useable footage of distant fireworks!

    3 DJI Mavic 3 Low Light Test - Christmas edition!

    Thought I'd take advantage of the Christmas lights at home to shoot a low light test of the Mavic 3 last night. Don't worry, I didn't fly the drone for this one - instead I carried it around like a gimbal.

    3 Downtown Battle Creek, MI Night Flight Christmas Light Display 2021

    Its Incredible how much better the camera quality is on the Mavic 3 then the iPhone 13 Pro Max. I used the Mavic 3 for Aerial shots and used my iPhone 13 Pro Max on a DJI Osmo 3 Gimbal.

    Air 2 I am impressed with MA2 low light video shooting

    I would like to post here my first sunset video shot with MA2 over very famous Bulgarian stone hoodoos formation, called Stob Pyramids. Part of the video was shot in ISO 200, otherwise ISO 100, 4K, 60 fps, 1/120 speed. Color grading in DaVinci Resolve 16. I hope you will enjoy it.

    MA2 trying to land in the evening - ATTI?

    Rookie MA2 owner, decided to fly around the sunset time. Started off good but when it got darker there were warnings about no vision systems because of low light, guess I did not comprehend the significance of it at the time (or what can happen down the road). It was all good until landing. I...

    Working on low light footage with the Mavic 2 Zoom

    Been trying to play around with some low light flying, I set ISO to 100 and manually changed the shutter to get a usable exposure, I think it turned out pretty good. It's still a bit grainy, especially when looking directly at the sunset. I think I may have pushed the Zoom to it's max. If anyone...

    Mavic Air - shooting video at night - best settings

    Hi there, I've googled a lot, and tried to find answers in existing threads, but no luck so far. I need to get the best night footage from my Mavic Air, I've tested several settings and assumed the following so far: - going above ISO 800 makes footage extremely grainy with some flickering...

    Who says Mavic can't do low light?

    I don't generally post my own work, but as an example and inspiration of the (sometimes debated) Mavic capabilities. Use this sensor wisely and it'll do good things for you:

    A night scene with my own music

    Hi all, flew around this nicely lit church the other day, around midnight. The weather was misty and cold and the scene was very mystic to me. It inspired me to try out my capabilities as a composer as well! I wanted to catch the atmosphere of the scene to the music while I wasn't able to find...

    Low-light flying over a Finnish medieval cathedral and old town, long pan

    Tried out a long pan around a medieval cathedral in the evening. Thins got a bit noisy in the darkest scenes, but the lighter ones were quite ok. Added the texts to try out the motion tracking -feature in Premiere Elements 15.
