2018 Golden Hour Challenge


#44

Thanks @pilningpilot hence why I went just around the corner! :joy:


#45

I must have a look at Litchi, though sounds like I might need to be a bit more organised!!!


#46

So finally taken the plunge and downloaded Litchi! See if I can make use of it for the golden hour challenge as still a few weeks to go…


#47

I’m hoping to use it for tomorrow’s sunrise, too. :+1:


#48

Bit soon for me though going for a sunset tonight for a sunrise and sunset double day! :smile:


#49

Hi Chris , tried this tonight but the fastest timed shot setting I have is 5 seconds on Dji go app, which is too slow to get enough shots on a 14 minute flight (need the time to get it back!). Were you using a different app to get 2 seconds?


#50

I am on latest Go4 App, I just selected the lowest shutter speed that was available at the time.
Not sure without doing a check with the drone connected, I will let you know.
Not sure if it was down to the amount of light coming into the drone lens ,at the time, the shutter speed was 2 secs


#51

The Go4 goes down to 1 shot every 2 secs for the Mavic Pro.

Can’t recall, Brian, is yours the MP?


#52

Just rechecked mine and definitely lowest was 5 seconds and a maximum of 30 seconds! which seems high. Have to see if other apps like litchi have better options similar to the settings on the hyperlapse for the Mavic2


#53

This was done on a Mavic Air


#54

Mavic Air Dave


#56

I am sure firmware up to-date so not sure why the difference


#57

That’s not the issue, then. :confused:


#58

I’ll have to fire the bird up tomorrow and see exactly how I done it !


#59

Thanks Chris as thinking I am going mad, which is not unusual :laughing:


#60

Just double checked mine and almost died … 10 secs was the lowest! :open_mouth:

But in jpeg only, 2 secs!

Didn’t check RAW only.

My usual setting is RAW+JPEG


#61

Brian, were you in JPEG only? Or RAW or RAW+JPEG?


#62

that’s what I was shooting in Dave, Jpeg, hence the 2 sec setting.
RAW would not be able to be saved to card in 2 seconds would it?


#63

Either RAW or RAW+JPEG give me 10sec minimum. But I’m not on latest firmware or Go4.


#64

Thanks for persevering yes I was shooting RAW and JPEG

I agree Chris, must be because of the time for RAW processing. A shame because RAW will be far better for creating a timelapse at night

Another reason to buy the Mavic Pro 2! :wink:

Thanks again both
