    Got my first RE shoot next week and you got me excited to do it. Thanks for all the details

  2. Daniel Farias on November 22, 2021 at 10:14 am

    What about using the drone to film the inside of the home?

  3. Geir Amund Lindberget on November 22, 2021 at 10:16 am

    Great info! But wow, that is some richie rich housing 😂 A neighborhood of castles.

  4. Isthmus Media Group, LLC on November 22, 2021 at 10:19 am

    H.265 with newer drones is much better in 5k if using a high bitrate. Just a thought! Great video!

  5. Morten Woldstad on November 22, 2021 at 10:19 am

    Nice video.
    If you shoot in 4K, then you can maka a photo of every frame in the video. You do not need to change between video and camera mode. You do not get a RAW file, but again, no one knows. Or do you think this is a bad idea?

  6. 1400Media on November 22, 2021 at 10:21 am

    Drone stills and video tomorrow. I knew I would be watching this vid for the 3rd time

  7. Vojtech Ďurkovič on November 22, 2021 at 10:25 am

    hi, do you use nd filters?

  8. Jason Joseph on November 22, 2021 at 10:26 am

    Does your drone really sound like that ? haha. Awesome vid as usual. Many thanks !

    thank you for the video

  17. Shel Bukowski on November 22, 2021 at 10:33 am

    Hello. Video size at 1920×1080 at 30 fps. Then in post production you’ll slow it down to 24 fps.
    Question- why not shoot it at 24 fps? Thanks.

  18. Mike Wiseman on November 22, 2021 at 10:36 am

    THANK YOU SO MUCH for this video. It’s extremely helpful!

  19. UpliFT-RC on November 22, 2021 at 10:36 am

    Very well done!

  20. Juan Pablo España Briceño on November 22, 2021 at 10:37 am

    Hi! Thank you so much! Great video! Would you please explain how you did that transition in 11:50?
    Best Regards!

  21. Skygirl View on November 22, 2021 at 10:37 am

    Did I miss it? Nobody asked what a high quality video like this goes for?? I’m just guessing, $1,200. Close, or way off?

  28. Andrew on November 22, 2021 at 10:39 am

    Thanks for taking the time to make this video btw

  29. J Aguilar on November 22, 2021 at 10:39 am

    What editing software do you use? Is it the DJI internal software?

  30. BERNARD BOSCHULTE on November 22, 2021 at 10:42 am

    Hi, is Pixieset limited to JPEG images or can I upload DNG images with pixieset?

  31. Andrew on November 22, 2021 at 10:43 am

    What’s your favorite site to get music from?

  32. Danny Sherrill on November 22, 2021 at 10:43 am

    how much would a 1 minute video like this cost? Would you charge a realtor by the hour or set price for the video itself?

  33. aggiebq86 on November 22, 2021 at 10:46 am

    What are your thoughts at using fades to transition between shots and clips?

  34. C.R.I. Training on November 22, 2021 at 10:47 am

    Thank you for your generosity making such an amazing and simple explanation video to help others

  35. Rabee Bin Nadeem on November 22, 2021 at 10:47 am

    Hey Mike, would you go with Mavic 2 Pro in August 2021 or Air 2S for real estate photography/videography? (since Mavic 3 is not coming anytime soon). Does the variable aperture really helps with real estate? I mean one of my mentor told me to get mavic 2 pro over air 2s just because of the variable aperture.. Please help! Love your videos tho! ❤

  36. Yan Did It! on November 22, 2021 at 10:49 am

    Thanks! Leaned a lot from your videos!

  37. 05subisti on November 22, 2021 at 10:53 am

    This is one of the best videos I’ve seen on both video and photos for real estate. I’ve been wanting to get into this for a while to help my wife who does real estate photos. Do you think the Air2S would do the job or is the Pro worth the extra money? Thanks again for a great video and what a beautiful home!! Nicely done!

  38. One Finger Print on November 22, 2021 at 10:54 am

    It’s people like you who make the difference in the lives of others. Thank you.

  39. Andrew Jacobs on November 22, 2021 at 10:56 am

    Do you not use any of the intelligent modes, like active lock, spotlight, etc.? I’m doing my first house on Tuesday and I was going to use those modes to let the drone do most of the work. don’t think I’m a good enough pilot yet to do it without the intelligent modes.

  40. obisteve on November 22, 2021 at 10:58 am

    Fantastic video! Out of curiosity, how much would you charge for a shoot like that?

  41. Austin Dunn on November 22, 2021 at 10:59 am

    can you get decent video like this with the dji fpv

  42. Victor G. on November 22, 2021 at 11:03 am

    Where were you while shooting? That’s the funny part is getting out of the shot lol. Awesome video!!

  43. Avant-Tom on November 22, 2021 at 11:03 am

    does anyone else not have the option to do brackets in the photo menu?

  44. JustMe on November 22, 2021 at 11:04 am

    Awesome video sir! One question, do you only use the tripod mode for low level videos at ground height, or do you use that for the entire shoot? Also, is that mode only applicable to video mode? Thanks for your time.

  45. Jon's Real Estate ~ Photo & Video on November 22, 2021 at 11:06 am

    Very impressive! Thank you! Very educational.

  46. RusticPix on November 22, 2021 at 11:07 am

    Thank you so much for this video! I just got my certification yesterday and I also have the same drone! Your shots are amazing and super-helpful!

  47. senseTUBE on November 22, 2021 at 11:08 am

    is your "video sweep" using POI ? and if so why do you not say this ?

  48. Flying Buffalo Aerial Photgraphy on November 22, 2021 at 11:09 am

    What do you do with the stills? You don’t incorporate them into the video. and how do you make it speed up …is it a Premeire feature you are doing or is that in your shoot?

  49. Jay Dub on November 22, 2021 at 11:09 am

    Amazing video. One minor question. Where were you hiding to film that? were you inside the car next door? Do you have any tips for how to stay out of sight when shooting these videos?

  50. Nathan on November 22, 2021 at 11:10 am

    Can you explain the benefit of using AEB mode for 5 photos? do you merge them together in lightroom afterwards and edit? Also, how much should I charge someone for this type of project. Thank you!
