How Do I Get Better Video Quality on My DJI Mini 2?

Are you struggling to get high-quality videos from your DJI Mini 2? No worries, you are not alone!

Many drone enthusiasts face this problem, but the good news is that there are ways to improve the video quality. In this tutorial, we will discuss some tips and tricks to get better video quality on your DJI Mini 2.

Tip #1: Adjust Camera Settings

The first thing you should do is adjust your camera settings. You can change the camera’s resolution, frame rate, and other settings to improve the video quality. To do so:

  • Step 1: Turn on your DJI Mini 2 and connect it to your mobile device.
  • Step 2: Open the DJI Fly app.
  • Step 3: Click on the camera icon at the bottom left of the screen.
  • Step 4: Click on “Settings” (gear icon) at the top right of the screen.
  • Step 5: In “Camera Settings,” adjust the resolution and frame rate based on your needs. Higher resolutions and frame rates will result in better video quality but will also take up more storage space.

Tip #2: Check Lighting Conditions

Poor lighting conditions can significantly affect video quality. Make sure to check lighting conditions before shooting videos with your DJI Mini 2. It’s recommended that you shoot videos during daylight hours for optimal lighting conditions.

Tip #2.1: Avoid Shooting in Direct Sunlight

Shooting videos in direct sunlight can cause overexposure and washed-out colors that negatively impact video quality. To avoid this, shoot videos in the morning or evening when sunlight is less intense.2: Shoot Videos in Open Areas

Shooting videos in open areas will allow for more natural light to enter the camera, resulting in better video quality.

Tip #3: Use ND Filters

ND filters are used to reduce the amount of light that enters the camera lens. This can be helpful when shooting videos during bright daylight hours. ND filters come in different strengths, and you can choose one based on the lighting conditions.

Tip #4: Stabilize Your Video

Stabilizing your video can significantly improve its quality. DJI Mini 2 comes with a 3-axis gimbal that stabilizes the camera during flight, but it’s also essential to stabilize your hand movements while shooting videos.

Tip #4.1: Use Tripods or Other Mounts

Using tripods or other mounts can help stabilize your hand movements while shooting videos. This will result in smoother and better-quality footage.2: Use Post-Processing Tools

If you still notice shaky footage in your videos, you can use post-processing tools such as Adobe Premiere Pro or Final Cut Pro to stabilize them further.


Improving video quality on your DJI Mini 2 is not rocket science. By adjusting camera settings, checking lighting conditions, using ND filters, and stabilizing your video, you can significantly enhance its quality. So go ahead and apply these tips and tricks to get the most out of your DJI Mini 2!
