The Mavic Pro offers photo and video. It is obvious that my strength does not lay in the video part. I never did any video post-production the way I do it with my photographs… Of course I tried to make some videos and I found out to have the white balance never on auto. Why? Because when flying around with the quadcopter, the light situation changes all the time and with this the white balance too and this can cause “funny” and unwanted effects.
Taking photos with the Mavic Pro – different story!
During daytime flights, I usually leave the settings on “Auto”. This is a little different when flying the quadcopter during sunset. In this situation the Mavic tends to overexpose the sunset (See picture number 2) and there is almost no structure in the sky.
I set the quadcopter to manual mode. The only option I can change is shutter speed. I try a different shutter speed until I get a decent result.
For the bracketing I set the AEB (Automatic Exposure Bracketing) to 5 photos. The exposure value within between is 0.5. Now with 5 photos I get a full range of -1, 0, +1. I have to say that I so far never created an HDR photo.
