Why Cine-like matters to your video

If you're newer to shooting video you might be wondering what all the fuss is about. After all, the DJI Osmo Pocket shoots great looking video straight from the box.

The Cine-like color profile is what's referred to as "flat" — with low levels of saturation and contrast while still retaining the important data of your subject. It's popular with folks gunning for a more cinematic feel to their video.

Shooting in a flat color profile such as this gives you more freedom in your edits to change the look and feel of your video. Whether manually adjusting levels or using LUTs (Look Up Tables) in an app like PowerDirector on your phone or tablet, the Cine-like color profile will give your Osmo Pocket footage its best chance.
