Hi All

So I'd appreciate any feedback on my first video shot with my Mavic Air during our Indonesia holiday.

Things I have already done since that holiday is:
1) Lower the gimbal speed
2) Buy a ND filter set so I can use the correct shutter speed (some shots in the video were Manual and some Auto)
3) Start looking for a new PC - my computer can't handle editing 4k footage!! (So the Youtube version is 1080p)

Any feedback on framing and or speed or other types of shots I can use would be appreciated.

I found myself repeating the same type of "dronie" shots every time. What else can I do to make it interesting? :)

Some really nice shots! The gimbal shots worked for me, I thought they were well framed and revealed the full scene nicely. There was minor jerkiness on some shots, but it wasn't that jarring. Perhaps a little long - maybe you have enough footage for two shorter vids?

Thanks for the input Wagdog. Indeed - this clip was more for us to remember the holiday than purely to show the drone footage. I'll think about creating a separate drone video, but finding time to edit is a problem ;)

Looks great. I loved Bali so much. Hard to visit anywhere else and not just return to Bali after our trip. I specifically summitted Mount Agung (it erupted shortly after my climb) just so I could fly my magic and I was absolutely devastated to have lost all the footage due to a corrupt memory card. But man was Bali and incredible place.

I’d recommend trying Spotlight mode in Activetrack- let’s you take some impressive flybyes

Just a small observation (& I’m not meaning to come over as a member of the drone police), but a couple of your shots were taken over some pretty busy beaches - I wouldn’t make a habit of it!
