Here is my latest video shot entirely with the DJI Inspire 1. I spent a few days in Portland last week for a shoot and was able to get away during magic hour to get some flying in. Please watch in 4K if you have a 4K display!

If you have any questions about how it was shot or edited, feel free to let me know.

Really nice. Love the slow rotation around the bridge at 3:00ish. Also wondering about which edit application you used and color correction. Fixed exposure? More info please and well done.

Thanks everyone! I used FCPX for editing and color correction. I did not shoot fixed exposure. I locked the WB, but other than that the camera remained on auto.

Very nicely shot, but it doesn't take long before the images become repetitive.

If I may, I suggest you read this earlier post: http://www.inspirepilots.com/threads/kill-a-tip-for-better-videos.2172/#post-23104
Thanks! And thanks for the feedback. Some shots are similar, but they all show something very different. I don't usually put together "sizzle reel" aerial videos because I feel like what makes the aerial platform so different is that the shot can continue and go to places that a real copter, or another boat, or jib could never go. That said, I've found that the 3 minute mark for an aerial "beauty reel" kind of video seems to be a good middle mark. As I said, I appreciate the feedback, I do agree that a lot of aerial videos are a bit repetitive and too long.
