    This is my first video with the Polar Pro ND8 filter. It helped a lot but I think an ND16 would have been better. Unfortunately that doesn't come in their 3 pack. What do ya'll think?

    Nice video. Two comments:

    1. Too long to view the same content
    2. Avoid sharp/ frequent turns

    Yeah, I know it's boring. I'm just still new to it, so taking my time and trying to learn everything. Mainly wanting to get the video to look the best I can get it. Thanks for the tips!

    I wish they had added the nd 16 in that pack also.
    Wow. Beautiful location you picked.

    Slow down, be smoother(I know you were only testing the lens, but in the future, move slower with yaw)it will also keep the arms and props out of frame.
    Turn off front led lighting.
    Video using manual camera settings.
    Open up shutter speed to 2x the frame per second speed to prevent the blured squiggle in the woodlands.
    Adjust white balance, seems too blue.
    Set -2-3-2 for your sharpness, contrast, etc. So you dont lose all the definition in the ground(green) among other advantages.

    Get DJI nd16 filter. It's the one I use the most. I have the 3 pack too and I hardly ever use the nd4 or 8 filter. Nd8 is good for overcast situations but that's about it.
