The Mavic 2 Pro can record video in 10-bit, but this mode suffers from significant barrel distortion on the edge of the frame. DJI acknowledged the issue and created presets and values to correct this problem in Premiere Pro, Final Cu, and DaVinci Resolve.
What Is the Problem?
An automatic correction of the barrel distortion is applied natively when recording video in 8-bit, but the distortion is not corrected when filming in 10-bit (DLog-M and Hybrid Log Gamma or HLG). The Mavic 2 Zoom is not affected by the distortion because it cannot film in 10-bit.
How To Fix It?
The video above shows a custom fix for the Mavic 2 Pro, but DJI just released its official correction in the latest user manual (version 1.2). DaVinci Resolve and Final Cut Pro X users must input these values manually, while Adobe Premiere Pro will implement the correction automatically in its presets.
Is the Video Quality Affected?
By definition, a post-production correction generates a little bit of crop or stretching, so the image quality is affected. That being said, the barrel distortion on the Mavic 2 Pro is relatively modest, and the footage is very sharp. The quality loss shouldn't be dramatic. In any case, I prefer to lose a bit of sharpness instead of experiencing an ugly optical distortion.
