My DJI Mavic review is at gopb.co/mavic
This was taken from a short flight whilst out Whale watching with my DJI Mavic Pro, only one battery was used. Taking off and landing from a small speedboat was challenging with the IMU and with take off and landing but the shots were worth it.
I was mainly out to take photos (I have posted those and ones of the Aurora on Flickr here: flickr.com/photos/philipbloom/albums/72157676834210515)
There is so little light right now in Tromso, Norway where I filmed this. The sun doesn’t make it fully over the horizon so you get light for a couple of hours and that light isn’t strong. Not idea for the Mavic but I shot in 2.7K 25p at ISO 200, 1/50th second for the most part. Profile was preset off, sharpness -1, contrast 0, saturation, 0

We had the amazing chance to go to Norway again this past summer for 2 weeks thanks to Matador Network and Visit Norway. We had the best time exploring even more of Norway this time. If you haven’t been to Norway its a must! Hope you enjoy and that this inspires to get out and explore the world.
Huge thanks to Jay Perry and Rebecca Tracey for road tripping with us and just being awesome!
Filmed with Canon C300MkII, Sony A7RII and DJI Phantom 4. Edited in Premiere Pro and graded in After Effects using Vision Colors Impulz LUTs.

In spring of 2016, me and a couple of friends decided to head up to no-mans-land above the arctic circle to explore, sail, fish & chase some spring slush.
I brought a couple of cameras and my split board to what turned out to be the most amazing experience of my life so far. To be continued.

The Sami People call it the ‘blue time’ – the period in winter when the sun doesn’t rise above the horizon in northern areas of Scandinavia. Jeff Allen visits northern Norway every year, in both winter and summer, to break out of the world of credit cards and double glazing that society has become and explore the breath-taking wilderness and coastline by sea kayak with longtime friend Bjørn Eines. In more recent years, he has taken up dog sledding under the experienced wing of Tore Albrigtsen and now guides expeditions to the region to let others witness the beauty of his favourite place on earth.

4K Dreamy landscapes from above Norway
In April of this year, a couple of adventure-seeking friends and I took off to Norway from LAX. I knew what to expect based on Google images and travel blogs but I also know how easy it can be to sell a location by a photo or two. The thing about Norway is that the sights I enjoyed the most were usually en route to our destinations – things that weren’t already pitched to me in internet photographs. The routes we drove had more tunnels and bridges than what I have encountered in a lifetime. We were constantly crossing over bodies of water (fjords!) and driving through mountains that were too massive to drive over or around. Each time our car emerged from a tunnel, the light would bring us a new majestic environment, one after another. I jokingly compared this phenomenon as watching a television that only subscribed to nature channels, and each time we went into a tunnel, we were changing the channel. This said, I bring you the N O R W A Y channel – a montage of footage taken on the route between Oslo and Bergen, but mainly up north around Lofoten.
