    Hi Shawn, nice video. I just bought my Anafi and I really like it. I can see your pans show up very smooth in the video, leading to my question: Do you have any tips about how to avoid choppy/jerky pans and movements in the footage? I'm not sure why I don't get as smooth footage, even when I export from adobe premiere cc with the same framerates and in good quality. The pans still look jerky, and I can't figure out why. My camera movement isn't extreme, it happens even in relative slow turns. I've also tried different settings on the drone without luck. So I thought I would ask for any tips if you have? Greetings from Norway

    I happened to see the distance from home shown in FT, how did you do that? I thought the Anafi only used the metric system, not imperial. I'd prefer imperial.

    Hi Tom…thanks for the Anafi videos…seriously thinking of buying one soon. But was hoping that DJI would have some new information concerning a new drone but seems like they weren't ready to go public with anything as of yet. Also noticed that your Anafi exposure changes when it comes across light and dark materials…ie, grass or concrete. Is it possible to set your exposure manually on the app. I think that would be a more professional visual rather than having the screen go from dark to light or visa versa. Thanks!!

    Shawn, i did not ever mean to insult you , your site is great, something i could not do, just wanted to let you know that the quality of sound and info was not as good as the info i got from you re the DJI report, perhaps its good for you re technical reasons, if no one tells you you will not know!
    Regards Ramon

    I hope to soon get my first drone. As of right now it's ether going to be the Parrot Anafi or Autel EVO! I just wonder if I would get in trouble without obstacle avoidance! Thanks for the review! Tom
