You can never practise enough, it's the only way to get better and get confidence! This is an edit of an hour on a Sunday morning practising some slow intricate shots and some more traditional drone shots.
I don't love the image from the DJI Mavic Pro but I do love everything else about this diminutive drone. You can see my video review of it at http://gopb.co/mavic

My main issue with the image is the compression is too high and the way it renders edges is not as good as the Phantom 4. Still, you can get good results with the right picture profile and some gentle massaging in post!

This was shot with cinelike, sharpness -1, contrast -3 and saturation -1. I used to shoot Art picture profile but it was removed in the last firmware update. I really do need to get my hands on the Phantom 4 Pro with a sensors 4 times the size of this and the Phantom 4 and H265 100mbps video, sounds much better! Shame it isn't Mavic size!
