Actually this is the best footage i have seen so far from the mavic pro. These images have the right amount of sharpness to my eyes. Also in the statue shot we can finally see the advantage of bigger focal length / shallower depth of field, as selective focus is not an option for a P4 owner. This is an example of how an experienced user can show the true potential of a product.

Yes, indeed.

One of the lighthouse shots (at 1:14) is pretty representative of such feature. Actually, the add-on is evident for that particular shot, comparing to the previous ones immediately before. Finer narrative tool.

Look at those colors, look at the stuff in the distance:

 

Of course, it's a class of difference. But that just hits the spot with me. That resonates. But even Phantom 4 footage does.

Casey Neistat. He started using his Phantom again, after having lost his Mavic Pro... (:lol: Casey, Casey, Casey...) I found the footage instantly much better. I've talked about it before... the stability, the color, the rendering of objects further than the plane of the subject. It looks off to me on the Mavic.

Nope. Very videoy. Mavic looks like film instead.

Really think so, huh? Well. I'm with Luke on this one! The 4K high detailed and 60p are terrific on aerial stuff! :scream:

You know what. I actually liked the Phantom when you'd just hook up a GoPro.

 

* note how relatively ancient these video are... already an awesome job back then. I guess we just have the prizes, compact size and level of automization now, but for me the Mavic's image is a step back

Not much wrong with the Phantom 4 either though, like in all previous non-Mavic Casey vlogs, or e.g.:

I love the BMPCC look. It's very low-fi S16 filmic sorta speak.

But I don't like mushy aerial shots. It just doesn't feel right. There's nothing filmic about it to me. It's like lowres spycam footage with ugly color. :grin: Just makes me want to puke almost. But izallgud. To each their own. I guess it's the other way around as well.

footage with ugly color. :grin:

That makes no sense. There's D-Log.

At the end, there's no ugly color these days anymore.

Nature landscape, no problem. Building edges are terrible though.

The Gopro and Phantom 4 look better to my eyes too.
