How to: CINEMATIC FOOTAGE mit Xiaomi Mi Drone 4K – Tutorial

hey people what’s up Momo here.
There have been some People asking me how I can pull my cinematic drone shots today it is about the settings that I
make on the drone. First i activate the personal hotspot. my
drone is connect via iOS I have an iphone 7 and the controller is connected with
the lightning-usb cable. i noticed here is that my iphone is never recognized the first time. I always have to do disable and reactivate the hotspot again for the app to recognizes my iphone and then connect to the controller I recommend you to check at home whether there is a new firmware update.
I just realized it on location and had to update. it was a small one so no problem there but it is not possible to skip or ignore updates.
so you are forced to always update which can be frustrading when it is larger update and you have to perform it on the spot at locations.
So we are connected now and I checked here again if my iphone was
recording the screen. the first thing I do is in the camera menu
to look if my settings still are so as I would like them to be. I put the
saturation and contrast to minus 10 sharpness I leave on default and on
this test flight I got the white balance set to D5000 and I’m super
satisfied with this D5000 thing what I still do in the camera setting is enable the grid a nice Rule of Thirds
that’s great. now i am bringing the camera
in position for the take off. on the bench where I sat
there was too much metal and that has confused the compass So thats it . if you want to see more of me then subscribe to my channel, thumbs up and comment below if you have still questions .
Until next time

    Great bro! Do you think -10 is even better than -20 on saturation and contrast? I am using -15 :). I hope they will introduce iso manual control anyway

    Klasse Video! Ich habe bei meiner Drohne das Problem, dass die Einstellungen bzgl. Saturation und Contrast zu sehen sind ALLERDINGS ausgeblendet bzw. ich kann da nichts verändern – weißt du woran es liegen könnte?

    Hi, I'm writing to you from Spain, thanks for the video. What configuration do you usually carry in drone? is that I have the impression that the videos are a bit bluish and looking for a solution. Greetings and thank you.
