Award winning photo “For The Love of Coffee”

DoubleXAir’s photograph was chosen as one of the top 10 winning photographs worldwide in the DJI Mavic Air photo contest.

This photograph was taken in a coffee farm in Guatemala.

Hard at work // coffee farm in guatemala. at the foot of volcan de agua, coffee lays on huge patios dryING naturally in the sun. the coffee is raked and turned by hand for dayS, even weeks until it is dry enough to be weighed, bagged up and shipped WORLDWIDE. This aerial view shows not only the scale of these huge farms, but the strength of the sun on the figure raking the coffee. It’s important to remember the many hands involved in making our coffee & that nature, as always is at the heart.

Life is a beach

We had a great week in Spain filming a beautiful villa on the east coast. What a beautiful landscape.

We are currently putting the film together and will hopefully be releasing it over the next few weeks.

Guatemala // Coffee Farms // Film and Photography project 2018

Its not everyday you get asked to work on a project like this. So when being approached last year about filming and photographing the coffee plantations in Guatemala, we jumped at the chance to be on board.

The brief was to document the coffee making process and also the incredible landscape in which it grows. The volcanoes in the area and the altitude of the landscape play a key role in producing such exceptional coffee.

A brief like this doesn’t come without complications, and although DXA are a small team, the level of planning to get ourselves and our gear safely into the country was no small feat. Also working in a country like Guatemala requires a little local help and advice, not only for safety reasons but also to assist with finding locations, translating and dealing with authorities when required.

After 10 days in the country we returned home extremely proud of what we captured. The people we met where fantastic and the locations breathtaking. We can’t wait to share the project with everyone.

DJI Mavic Air Review by DXA

An amazing thing has happened in the last few months. The compact camera that used to live in my coat pocket has been replaced, with a drone!!! Small drones have been around for a little while now, but nothing quite like the new DJI Mavic Air. This thing packs a serious punch, not only in its size, but the quality of the images it produces. 

In the past few month, DoubleXAir have travelled half way around the world with this little drone and it has become a valuable part of our kit. 

Its shoots really lovely 12mp RAW still images and also 4k video at 100mbps. In some instances we have got better footage from the Mavic Air than the inspire 1PRO. Add that to the compact size of the drone and you really are onto a winner. 

But are there any catches, yes, there are a few things that let the drone down. On a few occasions I have been flying the drone and the controller has lost signal with the drone. I would understand this if the drone was a long distance away but not 100meters. The Main then enters return to home mode which is very frustrating and time consuming. Also due to the size of the controller and the mobile phone live view, getting complex shots is very hard. Simple push or pull shots are easy, but when you introduce more complex manoeuvres they can end up looking a little jerky. 

The Mavic Air has an obstacle avoidence mechanism built in to the drone. To be honest I always turn this off. When its on, the drone is continually beeping and I personally find that more distracting than avoiding obstacles the old fashioned way. 

From a footage point of view, the 4k 100mbps is really usable and mixes in perfectly well with the GH5 footage. Having Cinelike D in the Mavic Air really helps with getting a good flat profile for grading. Low light performance is non existent but what would you expect from such a small sensor. 

Here are some pics we shot of Brighton Pier at sunset.x

All in all the DJI Mavic Air gets a big thumbs up from the DoubleXAir team. It will definitely live in my pocket over the summer. What a long way we have come in the last 4 years. I wonder where we will be in 4 years from now.

So nice to see some snow this year in Brighton. We were testing out the new  DJI Mavic Air at the time. We captured this shot of Lewes Crescent Brighton in between the snow showers. This little drone is very impressive and shoots really lovely 12mp RAW still images.
