Not too shabby, friend!
Hi guys. Just posted my first YouTube video. Would appreciate comments regarding improvements
Thank you for your time, to both watch the video and to share your knowledge.Not too shabby, friend!
I'm in the process of learning to fly the darn thing too. I've adjusted some of the control settings to smooth out movement, but you can also use cinematic and tripod modes to accomplish much the same.
Are you using a UV filter and/or ND filters? At very least consider a UV filter.
And use manual camera settings as often as possible. Try the other video settings, just so you're familiar with them. (I'm mostly staying with 4K)
For stills, I shoot in DNG, which is mavic's raw format, and process them on computer later. If you don't already have a raw photo-editing application, there are many available, including a few free ones. I can recommend Raw Therapee for both PC and Mac OS.
For video I use FCPX on my iMac. It wasn't cheap, but it is extremely capable. There are some free ones available, such as the free edition of daVinci Resolve
You certainly have some inspiring, scenic locations available!
I normally have a UV filter on all my cameras, including the MA camera, mainly for protection and keeping the actual lens clean -- it's easier to clean the filter off the camera, should it become rain-spotted, for example.Thank you for your time, to both watch the video and to share your knowledge.
I haven't used any filters yet, but I am going to buy some ND filters. I have heard that if you are only going to buy one set of filters, go for ND.
By UV do you mean polarizing? If not, I don't really see the point of it. Please explain
I see, thanks!I normally have a UV filter on all my cameras, including the MA camera, mainly for protection and keeping the actual lens clean -- it's easier to clean the filter off the camera, should it become rain-spotted, for example.
I purchased a mid-range of ND filters that included a UV filter in the set. I leave it on unless I'm using one of the ND filters.
