Watch Elena Buenrostro, Founder and CEO of Women Who Drone, demonstrate the Mavic 2 Zoom's top 3 features: Hyperlapse Mode, Dolly Zoom, and Digital and Optical Zooming. In Hyperlapse Mode, the drone can record a hyperlapse video while in motion. In this video we can see boats and clouds go by while the Mavic glides along the cityscape. Dolly Zoom, similar to what we see used in horror films, allows the drone to zoom in on Elena while it's moving backwards. This makes the background look like it's expanding around her, while she stays the same size in the frame.
I am a writer and an artist based in Georgia. Specializing in illustration, graphic design, and video art, I love to explore the new ways technology intersects with art. I think drones have done amazing things for photography and video art, making what would previously be costly and difficult more accessible. As a complete novice, it was only recently that I saw what independent artists could do with their drones, and I continue to be impressed by the sights that drones are able to explore and the images they can capture.
