Mavic 2 Pro Lens Distortion Correction

It is quite stunning that there is not too much information online about how to correct the lens distortion of the DJI Mavic 2 Pro, only on the Dlog-M to Rec.709 LUT User Guide V1.0 from October, 2018, which isn’t super SEO friendly, so here I share those recommended values to correct barrel distortion:

Blackmagic Design DaVinci Resolve 17 recommended values:

ResolutionValue
4K HQ0.18
4K FOV0.245
2.7K0.240
FHD 24/25/30/48/50/60p0.245
FHD 120p0.18

Only the paid version of Blackmagic Design DaVinci Resolve can use these values, those who are using the free version will need to make use of the Warp/Lens Distortion effect in the Fusion tab, as described in video Waa Productions.

Adobe Premiere recommended values:

ResolutionValue
4K HQ-4
4K FOV-9
2.7K-8
FHD 24/25/30/48/50/60p-9
FHD 120p-4

Final Cut Pro recommended values:

ResolutionValue
4K HQ0.02
4K FOV0.05
2.7K0.05
FHD 24/25/30/48/50/60p0.05
FHD 120p0.02

The Alex4D Wide Angle Fix plug-in is required when using Final Cut Pro X for video distortion correction.

True crop factor of the Metabones speed booster 0.71x on the EOS R5

In a previous article I wrote about recording 5K ProRes RAW with the Atomos Ninja V and the Canon EOS R5 by enabling crop mode, but this mode introduces a 1.6x crop, which can be mitigated with the Metabones EF to RF speed booster 0.71x, and by the way, has the same crop factor as […]
