    48MP Bayer Sensor + Image Averaging = Increase in Signal to Noise

    You can increase the signal to noise ratio of the 48mp quad bayer sensor on the M3P by employing a technique called image averaging. This technique corrects most of the noise and noticably improves the image quality for 48mp images. The YouTube link below explains the technique for those who...

    Noise in D-Log

    Hey all, I wondered if you may share some best practices for using D Log. I am coming from a Mini 2, so I’ve never used a log before. I recorded some beautiful shots in D log over the weekend, and when I color grade them, they look awesome for the most part. However, one thing I am noticing is...

    Mavic Air 2 video compression & noise issue

    I just got a Mavic Air 2 brand new from Amazon, and I'm having issues with some weird unwanted video compression/codec, and also getting grain/noise while shooting in broad daylight. You can see it if you look closely at the tree foliage. I shot this in particular clip in 4K, but this problem...

    Photos of people not great....

    Am I taking photos wrong or is the MA2 not that good at taking photos of people. Close distance there's no great issue, anything further then 7 meters or so and the noise on people is horrendous, but buildings/trees in the distance still remain clear as day. Help appreciated.

    Video/JPG/RAW big noise at Daylight | Mavic Air

    Hey guys, It's quite difficult to not see the big noise in the photos attached (the video is too big to attach here) - In the JPG/RAW image I think it'd be normal a bit of noise at daylight but IMHO, there's too much, isn't it? I didnt take a screenshot when flying the MA, but the settings were...

    High levels of Noise on videos on Manual mode, at ISO 100, LOG mode and without filters. Please Help.

    I'm confused as even when I shoot video at ISO 100, in LOG mode and without any filters, if the sun has gone down as you can see in the video before, I get a high amount of noise. Can someone tell me why that is? And how i can avoid getting that? I'm shooting in...

    Maximum height we can hear a Mavic?

    What's the maximum height above ground we can hear a Mavic Pro on the open air? Is there any acoustic study on the Mavic Pro or Platinum or any other drone at different distances? I've found some information, but too theoretical for me. DJI’s quiet new drone could be easier to integrate into...

    Initial impressions: Costco US$1299 MPP+goggles

    First timer here, picked up Costco's spring 2018 Mavic Platinum Pro (MPP) with DJI Goggles US$1299 bundle last week at my local store, and subsequently read/watched reviews to decide whether 1) it's a good deal, and 2) would I prefer the smaller/smarter/cheaper Mavic Air (MA), as suggested by...

    Sudden Noise When Selecting Custom Channel

    I've generally had poor range on my Mavic Air since purchasing it and it constantly needs compass calibration where my MP virtually never required recalibration. Today I decided to check out custom channels in an effort to solve the problem and seemingly identified something unusual. I live in...

    Color grading in Premiere Elements

    So, the other day was a perfect spring day, and I found the perfect spot to fly; for the first time, I took the time to set the video properties with post-processing in mind; put the whitebalance to "Sunny" and the profile to D-Cinelike. But then when I arrived home, I learnt that apparently it...

    Grainy above normal

    Hello, I am new to this forum, but I read all the thread about grainy video but I found mine really grainy. I don't have a ND filter yet, but even without it, I can't explain this result (4K, 30fps, auto mode): Do you think that the camera has an issue (I am pretty sure the camera is OK) ...

    Mavic Air - Noise levels

    I'm curious about the Mavic Air noise levels but I don't see any reference to this on the official Specs page. On the Casey N You Tube video he seems impressed by how quiet it is when it starts and takes off. Anyone know what the noise level actually is? Oddly enough the noise levels of the...
