    So with the 4th of July coming up, there will be all kinds of fireworks going off. Does anyone have any tips for trying to capture video or pictures with the P3 ?

    not sure how much of this we can follow. i know aperture is fixed on our birds. in order to see where im going when flying at night, i have iso set to 3200...which is no bueno for shots. so im thinking get to the spot where i need to be, then drop the iso for when the fireworks start. you can easily adjust shutter speed using the dial on the controller - right side index finger - to adjust without having to use touch screen.

    just my two cents.

    I did some quick testing last night and for photo's I did 3-5 sec and it really worked nice with some good color. For video I did highest ISO and seemed to catch it okay. I plan to use those settings this weekend..
