Mavic Pro sharpest settings video :


In this video I go into see in-depth testing of the Mavic’s camera. I tested the rumors of 2.7k vs 4k sharpness by shooting a test chart. It’s clear that the 4k resolves more detail, but further tests show that it also contains a bit more noise.

Comparing color profiles shows that D-log has a better highlight rolloff, and can be corrected back to D-Cinelike gamma with a corrective LUT found here :

The noise flicker problem is sometimes mistaken for over sharpening. It’ caused by the Mavic’s aggressive inter frame compression, causing the noise to re-appear every 8th frame. This requires sophisticated noise reduction to remove.

For a simple, no processing settings I suggest 2.7k – D-Cinelike, +1-1-1
For the best sharpness and quality I suggest 4k – D-Log, +1,-1,-1 along with the corrective LUT and Neat Video to de-noise the image.
