Felixstowe Docks at Night

Took the Mavic Air 2S out tonight to try it out in low light…quite impressed with the 1" sensor…


Awesome shot


Love that! Would make a great canvas printed nice and big



That’s amazing!


Nice one great photo.

Cracking photo. Do you have more info, shutter speed etc ?
I’ve always wanted to get a night shot with my Air2, but not sure how to set it up.

Hi Mick…image was shot with the Air 2S mate…it has a 1" sensor…Air 2 has a 1/2" sensor i believe…dont know if you would get the same results…but here is the way i got the above image…
I took 5 images using AEB (Auto Exposure Bracketing)…ISO 3200…F2/8…and the shutters were 1/25", 1/15",1/10", 1/6" and 1/4"…i merged them in Photoshop…i then overlaid an image of the sky i had to give a few more stars…

Hi @Terry1
Ah, I see. Yes I wish I’d got the Air2s for night shots now, but the Air2 is doing a good job for me and the video’s I take are mainly through the day.

I used to have the Mavic Air…and then the Mavic Air 2 and now have the Mavic Air 2S…lol

So the difference between the air2 and air2s must be well worth the upgrade ?

@Stillight @Terry1 …would it be possible to just upgrade the camera ? :thinking:

@Sandbagger Good question, well presented.

I unfortunately don’t know the answer or have the skill to do it.

@Stillight …Somebody with Tech skills might have the answer , I googled the Air2s replacement camera and its about $590 from USA inc shipping, so far too expensive to just experiment with and it does stipulate for Air2s only…regarding photo quality with the Air2 I shoot mainly in 48mp but I have read that more mp doesn’t always mean better quality images so more research and trials needed for me

Hi Mick…i went for the upgrade because of the 1" sensor…i fly to photograph…not for fun…

I dont know whether you can or not…ive checked it out and cant find anything about it…this might be worth a look though… DJI Air 2S vs. DJI Mavic Air 2 - A True Upgrade - YouTube

I think it how big sensor is…ie…allowing more light to each pixel…

Size of Megs doesn’t mean better unless your creating A3, A2 or bigger photos that require high definition, on a phone or pc a 12meg camera is sufficient. The only difference with a 1” sensor is it captures more of light than a smaller sensor.

Looks :+1:t2: ace…

For such a small drone these photos prove anything is possible
