So all of a sudden today there are videos comparing viseos of the Karma vs. Mavic. The Mavic is showing a soft focus compared to the GoPro. Not good for Mavic, and I have a Phantom. Now I can see a lot more research has to show up on these forums before I buy anything. The one thing I am not sure about the Mavic, it's so small. The Phantom feels big and substantial. Looking at people pick up the Mavic. it looks so small. Good or bad? I don't know for sure.
The other thing that kills the Karma for me is the range. 3000 feet right? My current DJI Phantom 3 Standard got to 7500 feet last week. 3000 feet is just unacceptable to me.
Did you see any of the rest of the craft? It came back?With hundreds of flights on my Solo I have yet to see the props in any of them.
I am hoping the Karma is better but that the camera isn't really integrated is sort of a deal breaker for me
Telling it to turn on and off and telling it when to start and stop is before the Vision + technology. Can it pan or tilt or look straight down? Can you control ISO, shutter speed, color temp, bring up and down contrast, saturation, etc all from the app?This is the best part for me, being able to take the same camera, and take it from being mounted on an object, to being handheld in a stabilized gimbal, to flying in a drone is pretty compelling. The Karma also completely integrates the camera, it turns it on and off and can tell it to start and stop recording, etc.
