Hi Mohan, can you tell me how long does it take the camera to take a dng raw pic? Does the screen go blank for a few seconds just like it does on the p2v+ and if so how long does the screen go blank for?I have both cameras. I like both. However for what I am trying to achieve the Phantom 3 makes more sense. If I was going to strap the camera to my bike then the P3 would be a bit impractical...
Most people are happy with fisheye. I don't mind it either on the video footage as long as the camera is pointing at the distance / horizon. If you angle the camera down then the fisheye becomes more obvious against the backdrop. I like to take still photos as well as videos and the fisheye is annoying on the photos. I have therefore gone to the additional expense of changing the lens on the Go Pro. These lenses are not cheap and not easy to change either.
On the P3 the camera is purpose built for a UAV. You can take snapshots after composing your shot instead of having the Go Pro take 2500 pictures that you hope would have covered what you want to photograph. All this functionality from the Pilot end. Having the ability to compose a shot, change camera variables is useful and should not be ignored. In real life you wouldn't just snap randomly 2500 photos without composing and checking exposure would you? I would rather be able to turn video on and off especially when 4K footage is so hungry on the media. Not sure if the Go Pro can take 128GB cards either?? The Inspire does so I am assuming the P3 may do (not tested)
Finally people say that the P3 gimble is fragile. The Gimbal is lightweight and made to be agile. Make it too heavy and you will have to trade of weight and speed of reaction. I would rather have a lightweight and lean machine that will fly longer than a tank that will stay up for 5 minutes before it needs to land.
This guy said there is no delay:can you tell me how long does it take the camera to take a dng raw pic
but this is unfair man!... haha... you are comparing $1.7k camera + some lenses (one of them the 300mm 2.8 cost $7.5k)... to a GoPro Hero4 Black at $499!!Time will tell, but for toy town cameras the gopro does have many more options. check out the sony a7s to see what proper 4k loos like..
I'll say it again. You don't have to be stuck with the fisheye with the GoPro.If you want to be stuck with fisheye on an action camera you can't control in the air (except on the new 3DR Solo) and the limitations of the drones able to carry one, go for the Gopro.
All the professionals (DPs, etc.) agree that 2.7K is the ideal mode for the Ambarella A9 and Exmor-R (the imaging system in the Inspire, P3 and GoPro Hero 4).You keep saying this in every thread, I ask you what is the best mode for a 4K display?
I think most people don't understand that... Try to say that to all this dji fans...All the professionals (DPs, etc.) agree that 2.7K is the ideal mode for the Ambarella A9 and Exmor-R (the imaging system in the Inspire, P3 and GoPro Hero 4).
The bitrate of the imaging system is really not enough for true 4K. It would need to be about 100mbps to get a true 4K video.
While I agree that having 2.7k at 60fps would be nice, I think it's a bit too vague to say "4k will not look good in some situations" especially when we already have footage available to examine. Why talk generalities when there is evidence to pore over?I think most people don't understand that... Try to say that to all this dji fans...
The best mode to film in the dji camera is 1080p 60fps that records about 40000kbps which is good for 1080p, the 4k will not look good is some situations because of the low bitrate.
