    I've always been really impressed by the DR on my Phantom 4 and on every DJI drone I see.

    Did you blow your highlights? I feel like it's really easy to overexpose because it can be really hard to see what you're getting. I see a lot of overexposed drone footage. I always try really hard to squint and make sure I'm still getting detail in the highlights and pull the exposure down to get it.

    Yeah, I was flying without ND filters in manual mode so there's no way to control aperture (it's fixed 2.8) except for lowering ISO/raising shutter speed. I wanted to keep the shutter at 48 (@24fps) as an experiment to see if I could get "cinematic" footage with the drone. I also shot in auto mode and I wasn't too crazy about the higher shutter speeds (the Gopro also does this as it is fixed aperture, too). I'll have to do a run with ND filters and see what I get.

    BTW does anyone know how the Mavic Mini meters? It looks like a spot meter the way it dealt with a tree line where half of the trees were in sun and the other half shade...

    On the other hand, most decent models are made in China, and due to political developments it may soon become very difficult to get dependable support (not that it's very easy to begin with... my Mavic Air developed sudden violent left turns, and I cannot get them to respond to my submitted ticket for the life of me).
    Starting to see what you mean. It takes forever to get in touch with them -- calling or online support!
