One Week with the Mavic 2 Zoom – What I've Learned
This video solutions some questions I have been requested since my final evaluation of the Mavic 2 Zoom, and it additionally goes over some new issues I’ve be taught in regards to the drone.
At 5:09 I talk about getting the best zoom quality with perfect focus throughout.

Can you do a video that explains contrast , sharpness and saturation ,what each one is actually adjusting and how can these changes be observed , what to look for ? And are ND 8 filters a good all around filter ?
Or maybe you have already ? Could you Share this information again, if that is the case.
Nice vid! Does the mavic has a headless function (smart mode)?
Battery last 20 minutes, is this a joke?
Hey ED, is the setting you show at 2:35 a troll? I have looked all over the place for that setting and it just simply doesn't exist on DJI Go 4.
Am I missing something? I have a Mavic 2 Zoom and I really want to stop my controller from charging my device. Please know that I am using the full sized USB port on the bottom, and not the smaller side port, because I use an Android tablet. Other than that, I have the same setup as you.
Thank you champ ! Great Video
That was a great video! For the novice like myself, you introduce me to a few things I can't wait to try. Thank you! I will look for more of your takes!
Does the battery die when you are not using it?
great and very informative video, there is 1 mistake, you cant take of in sport mode, even if the button on RC is switch to sport mode, mavic will be in p mode, so if you want to switch in sport ,you must switch to p and then switch back in sport… 🙂
Great information! Would like to know what software you use for editing and what you feel would be the necessary computer capabilities.
Hi Ed Ricker, great video. Do you know if there is any way to take a picture without having the controller in your hand s? Timer or something like this.
Thanks for this video, Ed. I'm upgrading from a P4 to a M2 Zoom. Great tips and info. New subscriber.
I ordered a pro 2 based on people told me. Should I order a zoom too?
Is the Super Res mode shoot in RAW files?
I love the scene with the kid running!! I love those moments in the beach, now I want a drone
Great vid, I've just bought the zoom which is my first ever drone, to be honest it's all over my head at the moment but you have been very helpful
New Mavic 2 Rain Wet Suits are released at @t Change the function and feel of your drone.
I just got this drone for Christmas and it is god tier.
Thank you for making this fir Novice. Don't know why experts make stuff for experts that probably know stuff already
Oh no! That little yellow running boy have a jpeg!
ur eyes look like u popped a lotta pills before making this vid mate
I bought already the dji mavi 2 zoom Is the best one thank for your review.
I bot a mvic 2 zoom
And in the settings RC Settings i dont have that option to turn on or off CHARGING MODE
I did app date my mavic also RC yesterday, please can you help me, what i must do???
Is there also digital zoom available on 2.7K? scrolled through the comments but didnt see that question… Would love to know 🙂
Finally someone with some sense! I'm sick of watching people review the Mavic and saying not to bother opening the props!
01:20 Might reduce motor life. ? That is nothing for a brush less motor.
Can we take panos in mavic 2 pro?
the word "Auxiliary"…. is your enemy lol 🙂
wow the heck with a go pro lol
Love to see Dix park in videos.
Can you show us dji mavic 2 zoom ka camera quality
One of the most well detailed explantations of a drone and its camera qualities ive seenso for?? cheers mate
with the obstacle avoidance function, does it work with an object moving towards the drone if the drone is static? what I mean by that is that I lost my first drone when I was taking some low altitude static footage of a yacht race when 1 of the competitors ran in to the drone, now if the drone is static and the object is moving towards the drone, would the object avoidance system kick in and move the drone, obviously I don't want to lose another drone but I love taking low altitude shots over water (ships / boats / surfers etc)
nice review. Trying to decide what to get for my next quad and it's vids like yours helps a lot in the decision making process. Cheers mate.
Thanks. I'm just dipping my toes into drone video and this brought up a few notable points. LOL: When you discussed the focus/zzom-in problem and your solution, I was thinking, well, though sometimes not practical, I'd have just shot that from zoomed-in to zoomed-out, then reversed it in the editor. The LOL is because later in the video you suggest that very technique for another shot. Personally, I prefer to not shoot with digital zoom at all since I can take care of that in my editor, as well. But, I can see where if you're switching from optical to digital, doing it with the Mavic would give a smoother product at highest quality. Anyway, thanks again for the vid!
Does the Mavic 2 let you shoot manual camera settings and 4k in quick shot mode? The Mavic Air forces auto 1080p in quick shot modes. Thanks.
Another awesome video.
I'm learning a lot about my new mavic. Your videos are well done and you explain everything clearly. Thanks.
But can you access the SD card while it's flying? That's key for a professional like myself. I cant be bothered with landing to swap out my card. Also, my vids are so full of great footage, the card weighs like 10lbs. I need a more powerful drone so it can carry my heavily laden memory card.
Do you ever fly around or do you just hover
Why DJI is not fair to Android users?
Not charge the phone option is not available for Android users
even my phone has 90% battery , RC still charging my phone , Hope DJI address those issues.
Great video and review does your horizon or level need to be recalibrated based on the time lapse footage?
All the cars behind you are the FAA wanting to lock you up for flying your drone!
What song did you use at the end?
Yesterday while flying my Mavic-2 I pressed the video record button. The little circle on the right of the screen turned red. When I decided to quit filming I pushed the button on the controller again and the red circle on the screen did not go back to green or whatever the color was before I started filming.
It reduced in size, still red and there was a little red dot next to it.
Does the video have a pause button or is it busy doing something else.
I tried taking some stills while filming but I don't guess you can do that.
Any suggestions ?
