0.27 it looks like a sandwich iron

Jules L says:

You should have had upscale the 1080p video in order to put it fullscreens. Just a small detail.

PhotoTech says:

Great review, incredible clips

Allan Sh says:

The verge is actually uploading in 4K? Welcome to 2018.

The music is to loud.

Coming into this video I was like, where’s Ben Popper at? He always does anything related to drones at the Verge. One quick Google search later it seems he now actually works for DJI in communications.

Robby Huang says:

Why can’t you do the dolly zoom in 4k? That doesn’t make any sense to me.

Dawson Boyle says:

I like that this review wasn’t rushed like the reviews released the days or just a few days after release

Henning Gu says:

The esthetics in this video a superb. And I don’t even mean the aerial footage. (although that is gorgeous too)

Zach Risinger says:

I honestly had never considered getting a drone before these models. Been seeing all kinds of review videos, and man. D A T F O O T A G E

I don’t think you exactly know what “Chromatic Aberration” is. Please look it up.

Asif Baig says:

Its a drone, you can fly closer to ur subject if you want, why the need of zoom! I would choose bigger sensor anytime!

AbdulRayhman says:

Somebody give the link of music in the start plzzz!!

blue4zero says:

I was in Iceland recently, however my Mavic Air decided to die, barely got any good footage :’( This video was amazing!

Matthew Rickard says:

If money and portability is no problem what is hands down the best shooting drown, like something you would use for a movie

Mr. Oculus says:

Not just elevating drone photography, elevating also the video quality of the verge!

William Stark says:

I wonder did they removed the vertical mode feature from mavic pro (1st gen)? Seems like the camera is too big to rotate 90 degree, but nobody every talks about it.

Yumian Deng says:

Wow I didn’t know I invented the greatest invention, thanks Vjeran :p

Lukáš Křepelka says:
