Apart from the short battery life the only other downside I can foresee is overheating. I see that it uses a fan to cool down the processor - I wonder how that will work inside a housing?

Wow I enjoyed that greatly. I think you have a real talent for macro. The exposure and lighting are spot on and some very interesting framing.

I loved how you can see the eyes inside the mantis shrimps eggs.

I also noticed that the Youtube version looks quite a bit 'duller' and the drohne shots got a green-tint then what I get playing the local file on my OLED TV. Not sure whether its compression or just not the best export settings in Davinci Resolve.  It was my first project I did start-to-end in Davinci, so still learning...



I have had the same problem. There isn't much you can do about YouTube compression but I have noticed that if you set your data levels to auto in the deliver page (Advanced settings dropdown) when exporting H264 it appears to compress the video levels down to 16-235 so I now always set the data levels to Full so as  to maintain 0-255. I don't know if YouTube knocks the levels back down again during processing but I do notice a more punchier looking output at full data levels.
