The Mavic 2 Pro is a great drone, it’s not perfect, but it’s a huge improvement over the original Mavic Pro. And while it’s not as sharp as the Phantom 4 Pro, I’m still happy with the drone and plan to use it for the next year or so. The image doesn’t feel over sharpened or digital, and I love the colors. It’s also the best flying, longest range drone I’ve used. But for this review, I’ve focused in on image quality.
🎥 Suggested Camera Settings Best Quality Settings : Color / Dlog-M / Syle : +1 (or 0), -1, 0 + Natural LUTs and distortion correction in post.
You may prefer to Denoise the +1 footage at ISO 100. It’ll take the edge off and clean the shadow noise. Alternatively, if you like 0 sharpening, then you may want to sharpen a bit in post. I’m still testing between these two because it’s a close call. I think that +1 sharpening with light noise reduction will likely look the best, but will be a little more work in post. The Noise Profiles include a light sharpening “regular” preset and ISO profiles for doing this. They also come with lowlight settings and a LUT for ISO 3200-6400 dlog footage, which has a strong color shift in the blacks.
Easy Workflow Settings : Normal – Style – 1, -2, -2 – Normal mode has additional sharpening added. It’s too much IMO, so I suggest -1 sharpening to compensate. Normal also does not need distortion correction in post, although you do lose grading flexibility and some dynamic range.
