ztasevpcbpsowzl26d
Iiiiiinteresting. They seem pretty close in terms of performance and whatnot so I had been wavering on which one to buy, but that may be the deciding factor
nslziwfurlzprll26d
Assuming regulations don't change in the near future
pvelirbzvlae26d
upxnqrpoxunnchun I don't think the regulations will change between the Mavic Air and the Mavic Pro.

But the Mavic Mini is a bit of a different story. It is much smaller (and cheaper) lower quality (but still 2K).
uwztzijzhfph26d
wphtztnuabvkvosj how will you be travelling on the Pan American route (sounds awesome)?
fnreyyjhysge26d
The Mavic Mini is 249g and the limit for registration is 250g in most places ๐Ÿ˜„
oamberuybmntmzr26d
Ahh, I confused Mini with Air facepalm (too early in the morning to think). I don't know if I'd want to get a lower-quality drone since I'll be driving around (with likely some bouncy roads) to deal with.

But yeah, we'll be driving from Toronto all the way down to Ushuaia and then back up to Mexico (where we live long-term). We'll be driving in a Jeep and then staying in Airbnbs for month-long stays so that we can save money while traveling. Should be interesting
bweswfjrobfv26d
Woah. That's cool!

If you're travelling by vehicle the whole time then I'd probably go with the Pro over the Air as you'll (from memory) get more active tracking functionality, a controller that is not dependant on your phone, longer range (you shouldn't be flying outside of the max range of either of these without a commercial licence, but I've had a couple of times where I've accidentally flown behind an object and lost connection - so greater range is handy).
cchtufasfhlw26d
nice shots!
rywomyxjny26d
V nice!
zrrlkajpyv26d
Mine are largely backlogged
bulwaagqry26d
Snapshotted frame from some epically cool footage I took
olyctxzupahlcqm26d
Those are amazing!
wtqgnuvaav26d
This is captures from the raw footage in DLOG
bgnbxmmett26d
I'm looking forward to making the time to edit this stuff
qzkvbrtmdp26d
It's all pretty cool in motion form....
lmpbizddeprfhna26d
Do the drones usually come with an editing platform as well?
vgcfkexrzu26d
Also - I don't use or trust ActiveTrack or anything like that when in a vehicle
tgbwwknzkv26d
I've had the drone almost smash itself into a wall with it
rsgroyadmc26d
So I just go manual
izrpthfnxr26d
Not sure if there's a platform
iqrxzsfmwk26d
I use DaVinci Resolve
secdmncjil26d
Droning...from the back of a pickup truck...
uwbtfaqudcjpalp26d
These are amazing - definitely looking forward to getting back into photography again
folugjsyfjjq26d
So I got frustrated with all drone laws in the world. Is there any good regions, where it's much less of a hassle to fly legally?
pyozhjhfpv26d
New Zealand
fmnschawlemw26d
(and those that are worth the fly)
igxgqlpjlp26d
Most of these are from there
lsxqhffazfth26d
+1skin-tone-2
cpagxgnoqexd26d
I've been to Portugal, but those rules are sick... and it seems like they are not so strict in reality, unless you are a pro/ stock pilot
yiwnmlxmbr26d
Most of these are a lot better in motion lol
mhuqkibrfzek26d
jroiezugwubhqhvq glad I could be of help, do post your journey when you do it!
jptudfzncduu26d
Active Track on the Mavic Pro 2 is _supposed_ to be way better than on the 1. I haven't tried it myself though!
npyrlpmtpkkj26d
DJI Go4 (app) has some basic editing tools in it. Useful to put together a quick video to share, but not more than that.
dfdglpuvnputzhh26d
Will do!
xmqonloqtnhv26d
(the last shot was a lot brighter in real life before the drone police come to get me for flying in darkness!)
qwznkfzkrg26d
I have Mavic 2 Pro
rdpckwtxuw26d
It still tries to commit suicide in tough terrain
rdbdbciwzno25d
Got a cousin that films with a gopro on a racing drone, results in quite epic shots
yiskwsrbqzc25d
for example instagram (dot) com/p/B6VHjSahGmv/
upjblhj25d
Thatโ€™s awesome! Always kinda wanted a racing drone
eydkmdggv24d
photography, this underwater i assume. lighting is great!
xkswcldqx24d
Great to use a subject in the photo ๐Ÿ˜„
mcoeymmtd24d
so cinematic
atgilnial24d
Lovely colour grade
cpuso24d
qjrdgznuqq Yes underwater, I built a home made snoot using water bottle, Iโ€™m getting great results from it ๐Ÿ‘Œ
wlmebtcakojva24d
That first print feeling
yrysi24d
elvyjszszibthw I didnโ€™t expect it to feel so good, but Iโ€™m so happy
eikya24d
Now gotta figure out how I can sell some photos sweat_smilestuck_out_tongue_closed_eyes
fxjosazoejnvu24d
It is such a unique feeling. I think in storage I still have all my first test prints after I bought a large format foto printer
gbtbverpnjvyg24d
And that's definitely a cool photo as a first print
umyrwq24d
do you need a lot of practice to get a used to a drone for shooting?
caacvc24d
also I assume you don't see what you're shooting at?
zipfmuwlmzt24d
you have a screen on your controller, if that's what you're asking about
gfqfeatzrkj24d
and you can adapt the controller movement to whatever your console of choice was growing up ๐Ÿ˜‚
nvudxmnhvax24d
except most console games didn't have an "up"/"down" so that one is a bit tricky
fpuffe24d
playstation ftw
lsuwsrvi23d
Photography relatedโ€ฆIโ€™m trying to take my own passport photo (which Iโ€™ve done before). I just went to the US gov web site because I remembered they had a measurement tool years ago. It now says you need to use IE explorer and itโ€™s a swf. I guess it hasnโ€™t been updated in a while?
ljwmcozdbbdty23d
Could you just Photoshop, and an image template set to blend as Multiply?
rhsgfmsj23d
The ruler in photoshop works too. Just nice to be able to upload it to be certain it meets the spec
qhimnswtouyg23d
zwsiilwfdr thanks! Although I don't know if I even did grade it, I think that might have been default ๐Ÿ˜…
meklpotugbobkl8d
I forgot who posted a staged picture of the guy on a boat I think in Myanmar. There's a site dedicated to those types of photos. www.picsofasia.com/the-library-of-fake-travel-photos-in-asia/|https://www.picsofasia.com/the-library-of-fake-travel-photos-in-asia/
qmovzeur8d
But those arenโ€™t fake, theyโ€™re staged
voxnyvvc8d
If enough tourists go to a place and want the exact same shot the locals will make sure they get it and then they can make some money off of it
uajzloqe8d
But theyโ€™re not fake
vnznrjoh8d
I think this idea of โ€œauthenticityโ€ in non-western contexts is a little orientalist
hjkvnjj8d
It's a valid critique. Kinda funny when staged photos shot by thousands of people win a competition...
fyoannb8d
Yeah, maybe "fake" is not exactly the word for this, since it implies a value judgement...
aawlwil8d
"My concept of photography is intrinsically superior" yadda yadda (and I disparage "fake" but agree with the sentiment).
xxdqgdqf8d
The whole genre of travel photography is probably a little suspect in that itโ€™s always a western gaze demanding โ€œauthenticityโ€
cttihmg8d
Yeah, I suppose it often is. But then my own photography is dry and boring because I seldom have people in the picture... ๐Ÿ˜…
szhvu7d
dgpawakbweaaqtq that was my photo, interesting there is a library for staged photos ๐Ÿ˜‚
xvpqwvmn7d
fewuwbpn I used to be like that! Iโ€™d wait for half an hour for people to get out of my way so Iโ€™d get the perfect shot of a building or something. Then I got a gig that required photos of people and sort of liked pushing myself out of my comfort zone. After that I started using it in my research and found photos of people actually doing the stuff I was writing about made my findings a lot more compelling so Iโ€™ve tried to get better at it
xuyhmjq7d
Yeah, just add people and things become more interesting (and potentially problematic)!
wegsguov7d
Yes, exactly! The eye is never neutral. What narrative are you creating? What cultural narrative are you contributing to?
churi5d
Not diving at the moment which drive me nuts. Keeping my sanity by editing previous photos ๐Ÿ™ƒ
frdqaqnd5d
I am about to open my photo and video achrive is this goes on and spill it all over...and finally edit some videos too which has always seemed too time consuming...well, usually
asecf5d
Itโ€™s, thatโ€™s why I only edit videos when Iโ€™m stuck on long flight ๐Ÿ˜…
perlytrvhef5d
I need to start editing some old photos too
jqthgeuk5d
long flight - i would go trough some footage and snooze for the rest of it :D
mytwy5d
Seems universal problem ๐Ÿ˜‚
vcfud5d
I remember I saw an ad somewhere for a service where you send them your videos and they will do a pro edit for it
foijnavy5d
now you gotta find me the link ๐Ÿ˜„
gyyvv5d
๐Ÿ˜‚
fppoq5d
Ok let me try my google skills
ojxxn5d
Iโ€™m not sure if itโ€™s this one, but seems close to
``````
nraan5d
kjrwrpcvq I think I saw their ad on instagram stories. Looked much professional than their website if itโ€™s the same service
ixhwljpj5d
Thanx, they have some practical solutions on their blog, nice little rabbit hole to jump in
seeuw5d
Youโ€™re welcome. I recon you can find freelancers as will online who do the same
ejqqxggx5d
I am sure a lot of 19 yo kids would be faster and better than me I just have to give it up as a thing I wont do myself before looking for them ๐Ÿ˜„ Lets see how these next monts go ๐Ÿ™‚
yhuvwgvdkmhbs5d
kzlmldrqxxcwzths used a service like that recently to make a travel video, and they did a pretty good job
kzcjx3d
Those guys are really hard to shot with the tg6 unless you give up the iso. They wiggle and jump really fast, so you need shutter speed > 160 to freeze them
vybkgssr3d
I was just about to ask isnโ€™t it hard with the compact camera. But you have lights I see at least, right? Or is it a build-in flash light?
wrsxp3d
uwihqxrgx Iโ€™m using external strobe. The hardest part is to focus or get the shot when theyโ€™re jumping around. Iโ€™ll try to get a video next time
llhef3d
What I do is wait for them to come into the view, shoot fast & blindly and hope it works then repeat ๐Ÿ˜…
gbnhq3d
My friend use different technique, I would say the camera limitations and your experience determines best approach
azcdk3d
Mine since the focal length is really narrow, is to hit the capture button all the way so the tg6 focus and shot quickly. otherwise even with not moving subject I tend to lose focus
yudcpcwm3d
Yes, I know the struggle of compact, have done the same myself ๐Ÿ˜… whats your friend doing and what camera with?
kauqm3d
beynhuosv heโ€™s using canon G7ii with diopter, and manual focus. Works really well for him
uxqdu3d
If youโ€™re interested to see how it turned out you can check his insta. pirata__morgan
lqdvo20h
Took it with a gopro. Lots of noise and some weird red pixels..
