Best Mavic 2 Pro Picture Profiles | Best Camera Settings

Most of the settings on the Mavic 2 Pro are pretty straight forward, but choosing a picture profile is one of those things that you can’t truly see the results of until you do some trial and error. In this article we’re going to find out which picture profile is best for us Mavic 2 owners.

If you're interested in my Mavic 2 Pro LUT Pack I used to quickly color grade all of the different picture profiles, it's available here on the Aerial Guide Shop!

In the video above, I go over the multiple use cases for the different Mavic 2 Pro Picture Profiles and Camera Settings, here is a distilled version of what that video is saying for the picture profiles. I will urge you to watch the video if you'd like to see the results for yourself though!
