Today’s video shows off downtown Dubai, a bustling city that always does well as a backdrop for drone videos. The video was made by Swedrone Aerial, who had this to say about the short clip:
“Early morning flight in downtown Dubai with the Mavic. Went ok apart from some range problems that can be seen as twitching in the video. It does that for some strange reason. Using ND 4 PL filter. Cut and graded i FCPX”
