Even if we fail to admit this, but vertical videos are pretty much everywhere these days on social media.

For example, you already have part of the video or photo with you and all you have to do is do some cropping and share it on social media, right? Well, it's not that easy, especially when you are handling video.

If that's what you want to do and the words DJI and Mavic are also in the same sentence, then we have the right tutorial for you today in which we will show you how to shoot portrait photos and videos using the DJI Go 4 app.
