So. This is my review of the DJI Mavic Drone.
Thanks for reading. Here’s a test video:
Fine, here’s my pro/cons
• Ridiculously small and light
• Low Profile
• Great video feed.
• Amazing sensors/tech
• Fair price
• Quick to fly
• Setup tricky
• Too many variables
• Too many safeguards
• Movements very sharp
• Video not as nice as GoPro Hero
• Footage plays down chunky in Premiere compared to GoPro
Overall it’s amazing. Its a great little tool to throw in your bag and take with you wherever. It’s a little bit of a whiney Nancy when it comes to updates and settings; I had difficulty getting it set-up, but once done, it was up and flying quickly. That says it’s so damn smart that it simply wont fly if you’re in a place that DJI says you shouldn’t fly. For this reason I’m not selling my old Phantom 2 because it’s totally off the grid, and sometimes as a filmmaker you need to be unrestricted.
All in all it’s well worth it’s plastic soul.
