    Beautiful, very smooth footage. I really like the opening scene where you're basically at eye level on land, then head out over the water. If this wasn't posted to a drone site, I might have thought you were walking with a steady cam until the departure over the water. I'm amazed that the ducks don't mind you flying so close to them.

    My one suggestion is to turn off auto exposure. In the scenes where you do a slow gimbal up, as more sky enters the image, the ground goes dark, and does so in distinct bands. This is distracting, especially as the ground remains your focal point, so everyone is looking at it as it gets darker until you can't make out detail. Set the exposure before you begin, and keep it consistent.

    Excellent cinematic style... u have a knack for this ... surprised that the ducks didn't seem bothered by you flying over them so close...

    Thanks Peel! About the auto exposure you are right, it's always off usually but i did the firmware update before the flight and it did a reset on it and forgot to turn it off -_- will do for next time!

    Yes...I'm also shocked to see how calm those ducks were with the Mavic flying that close to them.

    Agree about the ducks not being too upset with the drone -- this is good news for folks wanting to capture wildlife but not wantling to disturb them.

    There's a weird compression thing going on about midway witht he grass and trees blocking up. But, as the drone flys higher the problem seems to go away. That blockiness is worisome to me.

    @Raptorman, do you have a time mark for the blockiness? The blocking that I see I'm attributing to the autoexposure as it jumps from setting to setting. This can cause blockiness in compressed video as the B-frames are updated from different values.
