Which should you buy? The DJI mavic Pro or the Phantom 4 pro?
Colin Smith puts them through their paces and shows you both.
Pros: Lightweight, portable, affordable, batteries are reasonably priced. 20mins or so flight time, rotating camera, Quick to set up and fly. Fast shooting.
Cons: Can be a bit bumpy on video while flying in wind because of light weight. Hard to move gimbal smoothly while shooting video. Gimbal is very fragile. Crooked horizon often,
Phantom 4 Pro
Pros: 1″ sensor, sharp photos and video. Good Dynamic Range. Good Low light shooting for photos and video. Very stable, even in moderate wind. 360 obstacle avoidance. Good flight time with upgraded battery (over 20 mins).
Cons: Heavier and larger than Mavic. More expensive.
I have been making best of class drone training videos since the very beginning and have amassed over 24 hours of training on Flying different drones, understanding the flight apps, strategies for getting great video and photos. These videos have all been shot on location in Southern California and the Hawaii Islands. I also have indepth tutorials on how to get the most form your images in Photoshop, Lightroom and Premiere Pro. Enjoy!
