Here is my first photo from the DJI phantom 3 Pro. The quality is a little all over the place, as it was my fist flight, and I focused more on that than on the camera. It needed a little more setup, as for this the auto used a F2.8 and 1/350 of a second, and the photos just weren’t that sharp. Still a lot to learn :) Also, this is a two shot panorama, I just rotated the drone a little and took a second photo.
Btw. flying with the DJI is a lot of fun and its quite easy, just don’t forget to update the firmware, as it will refuse to start without that (and you have to be by a pc to update)

Learning to fly

Technique: Photoshop edit, Number of exposures: 2×1, Camera Model: DJI Phantom 3 Profesional, Focal length: 3.61mm, Aperture: 2.8, Middle exposure time: 1/350s, ISO: 100, Tripod used: yes, Location: 48.164531, 17.169800

Another little timelapse clip. Again I tried a sunset one, as I think those are the most interesting ones. And those are the ones that are the hardest to do. But actually with the Magic Lantern firmware, it’s not so hard at all :)

I’ve been experimenting with timelapses here and there, and I haven’t shared much from that. So today, one of the short clips I took. There is no video editing done on this clip, it’s just combination of all the frames.

I plan to do a longer, more edited video one day, but for now, I only slowly accumulate the clips :)

I started editing the right side of this image, when I noticed that I actually took it as a panorama. Actually, it’s possible, that I just took too pictures in a row with the same settings and they just overlapped enough. It happens quite a lot, and I just do a pano anyway. If it fits, it fits :)

This is a two tile panorama, each tile from 5 exposures.

How time flies :) This shot is from the 2011, when I was still using the Canon 450D :)
