1. Stop Motion

Mavic Mini features a brilliant 2.7K camera that is stabilized by a 3-axis motorized gimbal, which means you can use it like a normal camera! Set up Mavic Mini in a nice spot, take a photo, move your subject to another position, and take another photo. Repeat this process and combine all the pictures into one video to get playful stop-motion style footage.

5. HDR Images

This next tip is perfect for any budding photographers out there. Indoor environments are full of different types of lighting, and it's quite easy to end up with over or underexposed images. How can you improve your shots in these environments? Place Mavic Mini on a flat surface and take several shots of the same scene at different manual exposures. Combine all these images together with editing software to produce a stunning image with a powerful dynamic range.
