I had two days of glitch free flying so I decided it was time to start flying over the water. There is a pretty big swell here and the winds were really light. There were only three surfers out because it was big and it was early so no one was charging out. I did not get any cool aerial surf media but I did get to see how the water looks through the DJI Inspire 1. There is a ton of haze and you can see it in the pictures, clear morning would be sharper but I still think these turned out cool. There is a flock of pigeons that gets fed every morning and you can see them flying around. After reviewing the footage, my recommendation is to leave your drone stationary and let the birds fly through your field of view. I thought I was being crafty by rotating around following them but I think it just ended up with too much motion.
You can apparently change the camera mode to turn on burst, bracketing, and continuous but I have yet to figure out how to do this. Time to start reading up on the DJI Pilot app. I have learned that there are two customizable buttons on the back of the remote as well and I can already think of some cool uses for these like switching between these camera modes and changing the resolution of video speeds depending on the amount of motion I am filming. 1080p 60fps for fast moving stuff, 4k 30fps for the still shots. I am new to 4k and still blown away at the detail when I just stop and hover. It is just beautiful.
The Inspire 1 also came with what I think is a neutral density filter that the manual says will fix those issues I mentioned in the previous post, so I will be testing that out soon!
It also seems like the youtube videos do not show up in feedburner email that goes out to subscribers so if you want to watch the video below you might have to click here.
