    Are drone land surveys better than traditional surveys in terms of cost?

    Basically true. But the larger the project gets the less relative accuracy you get with photometric photogrammetry as well. That is, that points close together will stll be "reasonably" accurate. But points far apart may be less so, even within the same model. Warping tends to occur over...

    Are drone land surveys better than traditional surveys in terms of cost?

    No, MMP tells the camera to use Shutter Priority Mode. Then the camera obeys. MMP does not process and command when to change the aperture, or any other similar adjustments. That is the camera's job. To the end user, it makes no differences so long as it works. But under the hood, that is...

    Are drone land surveys better than traditional surveys in terms of cost?

    I can't say on your example. But MMP does not adjust the camera settings on the fly. It just sets them up as specified and then the camera operates on it's own. As for the ISO. I can say it adjusts because that's what I have used many, many times. Try it and see. It's just a setting away...

    I think the OP was just seeding their link and doesn't really care about facts or discussion.

    Are drone land surveys better than traditional surveys in terms of cost?

    Donnie, a couple of tips using MPP which I typically use as well with P4Ps. Exposure. I also use Shutter Priority, but I suggest you leave ISO on auto and not fixed. You probably have the experience to select a good shutter speed for conditions, and on auto, the ISO will adapt AFTER the...

    That is a broad statement given no idea of what you mean by "survey" or "better" or "traditional". Just sayin. ;)

    Night photography strategy - so many to choose from....

    I didn't know that. The US consumer economy is us, right? And so I guess that makes sense. I know where you sourced your Inspire. Where do you get the rest of your stuff? Oh, you out-sourcer you. Just like me and everyone else on the forum. Now, about those night shot setting tips!

    Night photography strategy - so many to choose from....

    Hey Donnie, a couple of the strategies are discussed in the following thread. It is in regard to the Evo2 but it is applicable. I personally stay away from the HDR specific stuff because it can have the most unintended consequences depending on what it used to look at it. More so on video...

    Does this not qualify on the FAA's site as broadcasting "REMOTE ID"?

    Agreed. Currently, you have to select "No" when in reality, it may actually be able to comply.

    The FAA has not yet specified the requirements. That field in the registration is for future use. Also, it is not a transponder.

    Found 11.27.22 - Looking for CineReader TG Model - Thunderbolt

    Doug, I remembers seeing I2 guys complaining about how the new cards needed a new reader when the new card came out. I suspect that it is not compatible. But I don't have one myself to say for sure.

    Remote ID renewal issue Inspire 1

    Have you tried entering "No" ? It is what I have put in. I have 7 currently registered craft with 0 having anything for the relatively new "remote id" field. I suspect this is for future use.

    searching for to buy cinemadng license key from crashed drone

    The cinema license can only be transferred from one craft to another by DJI. From what I have heard, they will not do the transfer unless they are physically in possession of the craft with the original license. No one has the ability to sell or transfer a license on their own.
