DJI Mini 2 is an amazing drone which supports 4K video recording and it has 3-axis gimbal and so many great other features and it’s weigh just 249grams and it means you need not to register the drone in most countries since the drone weighing 250grams and above has to be registered in case of most countries.
There are lot to talk about DJI Mini 2 but as far as this post is concern, we will just see how to take 360 photos using DJI Mini 2.
Let me tell you one thing that capturing 360 photos using DJI Mini 2 is very easy. DJI Mini 2 will take care of taking 360 photos for to you.
You need to make sure the SD Card is inserted in DJI Mini 2. Because if SD Card is not inserted, we cannot take 360 photos as the options will not be shown.
If SD Card is not inserted, it will just show options to capture photo or video.
Options like Panoramic Shots(360 Photos), Quick Shots, etc will be showing only when the SD Card is inserted.
After inserting the SD Card, turn on the DJI Mini 2 drone by pressing the button two times and hold it on the second time.
Connect your mobile with the Remote Controller and turn on the Remote Controller by pressing the button two times and hold it on the second time.
Open the DJI Fly App in your mobile and once you see the screen showing DJI Mini 2 in the center and Go Fly button on the bottom right corner, it means your drone is connected.
You can use auto take off option by clicking the icon on center left side of screen, and then holding the center when it says Auto take off.
Make sure the area is wide open sonce the drone will auti take off to certain height and there should not be any obstacles nearby.
Only after the drone is hovering, you can capture the 360 photo, select Panoramic Shots from the options and make sure you are selecting Sphere Panaroma from the Panaroma options on the right side and click capture.
Now the drone will automatically start taking multiple pictures from every distant angle and it auto rotate at that height for capturing.
Once after capturing the photos it will auto stich it for you to make it as a 360 photo but please keep in mind the top portion of the 360 photo will be blurred by default after stitching since the drone cannot capture the top portion.
I would suggest you to take 360 photos mostly in case of the outer spaces of any places so that the blurred portion on the top of the 360 photos will be sky in most cases and you can post edit the 360 photo with the other similar sky photo using any software. Let me know in the comments if you would like to know about which software to use for editing as above.
DJI Mini 2 will also store the captured photos of most angles in the SD Card which you can use to stich yourself in softwares like PT Gui but the auto stitching by the DJI Mini 2 is so well and the 360 photo looks amazing as if ot is taking using any 360 camera.
I hope you like this post. I will try to write more about DJI Mini 2 in coming days. Let me know in the comments if you have any questions.
