Hi, I am curious if somebody is using DJI Mavic Mini for stock footage? It was good for any sale?

Thank You for any info

I have used the mini for a couple of months.
Finished clips and photos were accepted and sold but I need to work hard to fix them.
I had three major problems with it.
- Lack of detail, regardless of resolution.
- Blurred parts in some dark areas. Not grain, noise, as you might expect with a camera but blurred or macroblocks at parts of the screen, which cannot be fixed in post.
- The biggest problem (if you open video with a lumetri scope you can see it) is that it has a difference in luminocity brightness every a couple of frames, that some report as a frame flicker problem.
   I could only fix that with neat video but it takes time and I use a latest generation i9, with 64 GB of RAM and a Cuda enabled Nvidia with 6 GB of memory.
Maybe try to find and download an original sample shot with the mini, see how you can edit it and then decide.
But for all the above, I would reccomend against it.
Plus, Shutterstock does not accept its max resolution, so you have to upload to a custom resolution only for them.

I am now using Mavic Air 2 now, which is much better.
It sometimes also gives blurred results when for example high winds shake a bush or a tree, but it is much better.
I have asked a friend to send me some evaluation samples shot with the Mavic 2 Pro and it seemed better, but I also had some sky banding problems with it on export.
Maybe I am overreacting but I want to make my life easier for stock so I think that if one has the money either goes for the Pro or at least Air 2, not the mini.
Or maybe one just waits to see if Mavic 3 will really have a large, Insire like sensor soon!

Stocksy are VERY picky over Mavic pro footage, and i was very frustrated with the quality too, so for both those reasons i sold my first drone to upgrade. I also get a lot of declines from my Osmo. at stocksy, nowhere else of course. only stocksy and adobe premium are super crazy nitpicky, in my experience. i think everywhere else is fine. a camera that flies is a marvel!

i found the first Mavic to be pretty dodgy, and Stocksy declined a lot of it. i happily upgraded. but still, it's a camera that flies!  they compare the quality to people who hung out of choppers with DSLRs....  it's not quite fair.
