Hi guys! I cannot get a single clip to avoid being ultra grainy. I've gone through two Mavic Air 2's and tested different settings as well as using or not using ND filters depending on the situation. The attached shot was in D-cine 4K60 1/120, No ND. I haven't tried any plug-ins, but am open to recommendations. Any suggestions otherwise? TIA.

It the camera the problem ... or the subject you are shooting?
Try shooting something that doesn't have a whole screen full of fine detail like a hillside covered in tree branches.
Do some test shooting of something with hard detail, like a well-lit house wall from 20-30 ft.

I can't really see that ultra graininess you're speaking of ...

Then that car shot is really underexposed ... check the histogram. If you want to produce the cleanest vid. push the histogram more to the right without overexposing & then later bring down the brightness in post.

I saw no graininess either. Only the flicker of the video. It is pretty underexposed for sure.
