I am looking to get into a prosumer drone this year, basically waiting to see if DJI releases any major improvements with a Phantom 5 that hopefully comes out Oct/Nov or if an updated Mavic has a real camera sensor on it, otherwise I will likely grab a Phantom 4 Pro at a minor discount.

I love the idea of the mavic with portability (especially if ever traveling), but I think the quality of the camera is more important and unless they basically provide the new P4P camera on an upcoming mavic revision I will have to pass on it.
I do not want buyers remorse in the sense of thinking "these photos look good, maybe even great, but certainly not outstanding."
I also want to just jump in and grab a top-tier quality drone and not waste money on a middle market one to then find myself buying the high end again later.

Just curious who out here already has experience with some high end drones for photography and video.
I would imagine a few of you have a P3P, P4, or P4P.

As much as I think it would be awesome to own an Inspire 2, those would be even bigger and less portable not to mention a steep price increase so I have the draw the line short of that one I think. If I did anything major with video or commercial use I would reconsider or perhaps see what happens in 3-5 years.

I don't know much on what the P5 will bring, but I have a feeling the camera won't be touched much and will focus on more sensors, maybe a bit more portable, and try another 5+ minutes battery life. If they do the 5 series like the 4, then the P5P won't come out for a bit of time after the P5 and it may actually see a noticeable camera change or 2nd controls for the camera, etc. I guess they try and trickle down some of the Inspire features into the Phantoms.

The Mavic would be fun to try out I think, but I want the camera still over the portability. If I was one who traveled a lot or on the road all the time those priorities might switch, but that is not the case for me.

I will have to try out the various photo settings, I am no expert on post-processing, but can likely learn or figure it out. I agree you can do more though if actually shot in RAW though.
