‘DJI Phantom 4’ Review, Day 6: Has Video Quality Improved?


We’ve seen the Phantom 4 attributes, but what about video quality?
To examine this,we looked intently at the horizon and shot Phantom 4 and the Phantom 3 up to about 300 feet. It seems like there’s a modest development in lens aberration after reviewing the footage, but the Phantom 3 had scarcely any aberration in the first place, so this is’t an advancement that you’ll see regularly. We have to do a suitable evaluation that is sharpens, but pictures do look somewhat sharper.

The Slowmo

One thing that surprised me is the 1080P 120FPS slow motion way. For a couple of days of possessing the Phantom 4, I understood the 120FPS attribute was in the program somewhere, but I never troubled to look for this since slow-motion ways smartphones and never seem all that great on most consumer cameras. Now was camera day and so I thought I’d give it a try. Astonishingly, the footage was really functional. It did’t seem anywhere near as great as 4K, but it did when shooting in slow motion ’t have all those wild video.

Based on which DJI says, it’d appear so far I’m joyful with what I’m seeing and the Phantom 4 camera has’t actually enhanced, but I’ve discovered some clear differences between both cameras. Is the Phantom 4 has better white balance settings. The white balance is adjusted by it precisely and the white balance presets appear to give results that are better. Here are two pictures using the white balance preset that is bright. The bottom picture is the Phantom 4 and the top picture is the Phantom 3.

I ca’t say for sure, but it appears like there’s somewhat more dynamic range in the pictures in the Phantom 4 compared to the Phantom 3. The Phantom 4 also appears to get the exposure right more generally. With the Phantom 3, I’d attempt to shoot in full manual mode, but with the Phantom 4 I’m generally placing the white balance and simply leaving it in vehicle.

No problem!
In the DJI Go program, now you can steal to zoom in and out. This attribute is only on the Phantom 4 and what’s trendy about it’s which you can get 2x digital zoom in the 2.7K shooting style. This characteristic is fantastic if you’ve ever felt like the wide angle lens on the Phantom was only a bit too broad. ’s why and zoom in when you get the footage in the editor, but that’s not the greatest thought and here a number of people might say to only shoot in 4K.

This means you should end up getting a cleaner picture with less compression artifacts than cropping in afterwards and shooting in 4K.

Could it be better in low light?


I found something quite interesting in the DJI Go program while doing some test shots because of this review. This setting is on by default, but I tried turning away it and see a fairly large difference in the number of sound it was pulling from the picture. That is really a characteristic that’s just accessible on the DJI X5 cameras that are higher priced, but it’s on the Phantom 4!

I did’t believe it would make seasoned cinematographers any happier than they’re with the Phantom 3 before getting the Phantom 4. I feel like it’d be worthwhile to update even if it was only for the developments I mentioned previously, after carrying this out review however.
