Guys, check out my latest compilation. Tried to choose only the most epic shots from 5 sessions (1-3 flights each). These are my first 3 weeks with this drone.
Full review will follow soon (think I tested most functions out soon - currently exploring Litchi more).
Filmed mostly in 4k (first 2/3rds) with some minor color grading.
Last 3rd (frozen fields) were in 2.7k/25p and NO color grading here (since magic misty golden hour didnt need my corrections :)

greets from Austria,

Curious how you are focusing and getting such forgiving depth of field. i.e. going over trees that are focused and then to horizon, etc

God I wish it were that simple. The more I research the more I am finding that most people seem to be seeing this. If you look at any level of detail, the individual frames look more like a painting than video. if you are interested, this guys explains and shows my issues perfectly. Unfortunately the more I research, the more I find I am far from alone. I believe it is either a firmware issue or a production issue which would explain why some are seeing it so profoundly and others not. Check it out and tell me what you think.

Here is a my frame extract of one of my videos and a link to a 9 second video. I reshot it several time and taped the focus point time and time again with the same results. If you open the still and look at the detail it is (like I said) like a painting. Also and I think this is a bug, this was shot back to back at 1920 instead of 3840 and as you can see it almost looks like a posterized photoshop filter and an exaggeration of what I am seeing in the 3840 movieThis in fairness was shot after a firmware update. Perhaps thats it as I didn't notice it before.

I only focus once (usually after ascending a few meters and looking to the horizon. this does focus to inifinity which works in most cases. only if you film very close objects, you'd need to focus new...

Beautiful shots!

I just got back from Vienna (a conference) and didn't bring my Mavic because I couldn't figure out the rules - especially for visitors.

Would you know if a tourist will be allowed to fly their Mavics? (Responsibly, of course).

Man that was nice. Goes to show what a well tuned MP can do.

Vienna is almost fully covered with a no fly zone (since it's within 20km range of the international airport. So basically nobody should fly there I guess...
Visitors dont get easier rules here :)

Boy, this looks terrible. I mean, if you go for a fance painting effect it's nice. Can imagine that you're pissed with this quality. I dont think this is focus related. This more looks like a software filter (noise reduction?).

Have you tried taking DNG Raws next to JPGs? If I'm correct the RAW pics should look fine (or maybe very noisy?)
Good luck!

Before there were drones, you would have to hire a copter to do that.
