    Casey just added a comparison but his Mavic footage still looks soft.

    Do you think he may have missed the part about the Mavic focusing?

    Without a doubt. Plus, he's been manhandling that lens over the past couple of Mavic videos. I'm betting he needs to give a wipe across the glass, too.

    I think that is the only video I have seen of him not slamming equipment around. I don't follow him at all. I think his videos are somewhat entertaining. ....but not for me. When I see him slamming, throwing, dropping, and just abusing stuff like some little spoiled rich kid...I wanna slap him.

    That is interesting footage because you can see from the start it is out of focus and then he adjusts the focus and BOOM. Sharp as!!! It is definitely the issue with Casey's footage. He either has a smudge on his lens or isn't focusing.

    It really looks like the Mavic is out of focus rather than it being "soft". It probably needs some calibration...

    lol, when you have close to 5M subscribers, you can afford to break equipment without caring.

    The Mavic footage looked pretty soft compared to the video posted by @brusca

    It's the same sensor as the P4 but different lens. Hope they didn't cheap out on the lens quality, because my P3pro 4k footage looks better than that.

    I personally do not care how many people follow him. Means nothing to me. I think that if anyone finds him something worthy of following must have a weak mind. And NO, I am not jealous of what he does or how much money he may make or the free stuff that may be sent to him for him to act like a jerk. Some are followers. ...some are leaders.

    Nice clean footage, but I see we still have the dreaded tilted horizon problems!

    The GoPro drone is the Karma which uses either a Hero 4 or Session 4 or the recently announced Hero 5 or Session 5 cameras. :)

    It's that little cube video camera.

    One of the new cameras from Gopro.....Google it for info. (It's not the drone as gyrex says it is).

    You may want to read up on 'sarcasm' sometime... Also, the little wink emoticon is a dead giveaway too.

    Let me back up a sec and say I hear ya loud and clear and I feel the same way you do. I don't follow or subscribe to his videos either and I don't subscribe to folks who think throwing expensive gear around like they don't care is fun or funny. I see it as wastage.

    I agree 100%. I'd consider myself quite 'well off' but treat my gear with respect. Seeing someone thrash expensive gear around without a care is super irritating. It shows that someone hasn't worked hard for their money and don't respect it.

    I just got a Gopro Session a little over a month ago. What is the difference?

    I understand that point of view and I know this thread is about the drone but he's a _daily_ video maker and a _very_ good one. He's _using_ his equipment. He's explained this time and time again, he respects his equipment but if he can use it around his daily life it's pointless. He can't stop and take the time to set up a tripod 50 times every day, he can't play it safe with his drone and expect people to be interested in those shots. There are millions of boring "safe" drone videos on the Internet. I get about 5 seconds into them and click off. His job is to deliver interesting shots each and every day. This requires risk. It does not mean he does not appreciate his hardware.
