Thought I pop the little mini 2 in the air on my walks today.
4 shot HDR’s
3 shot manual pano
Nice shots Steve.
It’s not a bad little beast is it? I put mine up this morning again and tried a little video and a few shots. Doesn’t quite compare with the M2P (as you would expect) but the results are way better than the original Mini and will definitely do as a backup (or to fly where the M2P can’t).
Yeah it is a little beast. Quite impressed with these.
It pays to take a few shots of the same spot and merge in LR.
Great shots Steve how are you finding the Mini 2 so far? Quality? Wind handling? Etc
Thanks Steve. It’s fantastic for just throwing in your pocket and in the air, quality of photos… Great for whats taking them, not a patch on the 2 pro but then their a different league. Not to much wind today, enough though you can see it twitching and handled it perfectly. overall I’m impressed.
Great photos Steve, love that pano
I’d agree, it is a little beast. I’ve been really impressed with the video quality, the photo quality is not too bad either.
My thoughts exactly, particularly where I can’t fly my M2P.
I noticed that this morning, it was twitching away yet I had a rock solid image on my phone
Cheers Steve food for thought
The handling seems very good and it can handle a bit of wind. Photo quality is not bad, especially RAW, but from what I have seen so far of the video looks to be very good in both 1080p and 4K.
Ah I didn’t realise you had got the Mini 2 John. It looks like you’re all finding it pretty good so far I’m trying to work out if its worth me biting the bullet and getting one too? I’m just not sure yet
So would you say that the video quality is better than the photo quality Steve?
Yep Steve, first flight was yesterday morning - Blantyreferme Anti Aircraft Battery - Videos by Drone - Grey Arrows Drone Club UK
Pretty impressed with the Mini 2 so far. I will still be mainly using my M2P for photos, but where I can’t fly it, I’ll use the Mini 2. The Mini 2 is great fun to fly too, definitely worth getting one
From first impressions, yes, but I have only put it in the air twice so far and not had a chance to fully process it all. There are guys on here that would be able to answer that question for sure, having had the Mini 2 a lot longer.
Steve, I think that you have to ask yourself what you want it for. It does produce far better images and video than its predecessor, but probably wont match your MA2. The main reason I have one is that it allows me to fly it in places that I would be unable to with the M2P and still get very acceptable results.
Thats good to hear John, I’m gonna take a look at your video now I’m still weighing up if I will get the use out of the mini 2 for the money. I mainly fly in the countryside so far
Thanks Steve, that’s exactly what I’m trying to weigh up at the moment. I’ll have a good think about it cheers
Great pictures and colourful tempting me to get a mini 2
Thank you David.
