The Optimist Regatta is meant for sailors age 7 to 15. And is divided into gold and silver fleets. The Gold fleet is meant for the top 100 ranked sailors, while the Silver fleet are meant for the rest of the sailors.
I had the privilege to be given the permission to film this Regatta by Raffles Marina, and in return give them the footages filmed in the process. This is the first time I fly so low at about 6-7m above sea level. The disadvantage is sometime you may get signal drop flying so low. However, this is an open sea with very few large ships around. Hence, I experience close to no signal lost.
Did a flight today at the Kan Daw Gyi Lake in Yangon, Myanmar. This place was man made by the British while the were ruling Burma. The lake is super green due to the algae that is growing in the water. I could see some pumps at the side trying to clean the water, but I guess it is not working well. Within the lake compound there are many small Chinese eateries as well as some tea and dessert stall. They even have a mini Zoo in there with ponies, goats and cows.
Karaweik Palace was completed in 1974, and is now an iconic restaurant
The current accessories are: Flood Lights, Speaker, Beacon
Will DJI create more accessories such as a secondary Camera options, So that user can mount a specialised camera for a specific purpose? But that would mean a 2 channel video transmission which the Mavic 2 platform may not be able to provide. I think for the start they have proven a concept of a modular system which I think will open up a huge potential for future aerial application.
Recently, there has been some talk about Mavic 2 Pro video output has been disappointing as DJI did not implement a full sensor read out. However, DJI has clarified that they does full sensor readout. However, at the backend, they resampled the video into 4K due to the constrain that they have to make the camera small. This allow for cleaner and greater dynamic range. So how does it match up to the Sony RX100VI which uses the same sensor? One thing I found is that when I shoot at HLG, the footage tends to get overexposed. Hence, you will see in the video some part of the footage is washed out. I did not want to change any of the settings to maintain consistency.

I have tested the Mavic Pro in both D-Log and HLG mode.
Check out the video below.
You can download the uncompressed 4K video below for your own assessment.
Got the package a while back, but was unable to do this video because I was in Vietnam when the package arrived in Singapore. My first impression of the Mavic 2 Pro have been very positive. I think DJI has used a better material to make the shell of the Mavic 2 Pro. Many videos have shown that is it much more resistant to crash now. Great Job DJI!
I will test out the flight performance this weekend and will give you guys more feedback. So stay tuned.
July 18 will be the day we all will be waiting for. Stores in the US did not restock their Mavic Pro series, getting ready for the version 2. (DJI has postpone the event for unknown reason, some say is to create more hype and anticipation, while some feel that they may be experiencing some technical issues which need more time to rectify.)
From the internet, there are leaks about 2 versions, the Mavic 2 and the Mavic 2 Enterprise.
Mavic 2 (both version) now feature an interchangeable gimbal where it can be removed to fit onto a hand grip like a scaled down OSMO. Will the camera come with a 1” sensor is still unknown.
The Mavic 2 Enterprise now can attach additional modules on top of the drone to allow the drone to have additional functionalities for industrial use which requires user to travel to remote areas.
