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.
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.

Just want to say a huge thank you for those who came to participate in this workshop. I truly enjoyed myself and also hope that the new friendship that has been forged will continue to grow and the passion for photography and videography will also continue to blossom.
I do encourage all of us to bring our questions and suggestions to:
It looks like drones are here to stay. More company are exploring how to use robotics to make business more efficient and cost effective. In 2 -3 years time, I am sure when drone technology becomes more mature, safe and reliable we will see more application for them.
The Inspire Pilots of Singapore was formed recently on 26th August 2015 for the sole purpose of gathering like minded Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAV) pilots together. Especially those who are flying the DJI Inspire 1 quadcopter.
This website is still under constructions and the exact details of what we are going to do will be announced later.
We are current powered by RP Innovations Singapore. RP Innovations Singapore is currently sponsoring some of our activities as well as giving us technical support.
