So I was curious if DJI Go or Mavic logs have video information like color settings or any other camera settings stored in them. I have several video from when I first started flying and I am trying to determine weather I used d-cinelike or d-log

@baddog Did you ever find an answer? I'm wondering the same thing. Or if the files themselves reveal in meta data what they were shot in.

Video files don't have any metadata and I've not seen anything in flight data that shows camera settings.

I did find that turning on Video Caption in camera settings produces .SRT files next to the video files that include some camera info. Search .srt or Captions here and elsewhere to learn more. The following example from my M2Z does not include altitude but I've read other models do, and M2Z may eventually. It does show "d_cinlike" to answer the OP question.

It's just a text file so easy to look at, or upload to this neat visualizer @0Kajuna0 here created: DJI SRT Flight Data Viewer

Example:
1
00:00:00,000 --> 00:00:00,033
<font size="36">FrameCnt : 1, DiffTime : 33ms
2019-03-21 16:58:30,405,642
[iso : 100] [shutter : 1/60.0] [fnum : 280] [ev : 0.7] [ct : 5286] [color_md : d_cinlike] [focal_len : 240] [latitude : 38.858281] [longtitude : -94.518687] </font>

2
00:00:00,033 --> 00:00:00,066
<font size="36">FrameCnt : 2, DiffTime : 33ms
2019-03-21 16:58:30,439,004
[iso : 100] [shutter : 1/60.0] [fnum : 280] [ev : 0.7] [ct : 5286] [color_md : d_cinlike] [focal_len : 240] [latitude : 38.858281] [longtitude : -94.518687] </font>

00:00:00,066 --> 00:00:00,100
<font size="36">FrameCnt : 3, DiffTime : 34ms
2019-03-21 16:58:30,472,394
[iso : 100] [shutter : 1/60.0] [fnum : 280] [ev : 0.7] [ct : 5286] [color_md : d_cinlike] [focal_len : 240] [latitude : 38.858281] [longtitude : -94.518687] </font>
... etc. etc. etc.
