    Hey all! I had a break in between taking care of my dad and classes, so i decided to go flying around my neighborhood and play around with the camera settings while its in manual mode, and it completely blew me away by how clear they are!!! I'm just attaching pictures haha.

    what were your camera settings? (resolution, fps, iso, shutter, etc.).

    were you using an ND filter?

    It's the phantom 3 4K, my ISO stayed between 800 and 1600. And resolution is just 1080. Fps doesn't apply here. And I was not using any kind of filter. I just used the ISO and shutter speed to adjust the light as well as playing with light balance.

    It was basically different by a little for every shot.

    Thought ND filters were mostly for video, not stills.

    This may sound dense of me, but what exactly are ND filters?

    It give the video image a much nicer look, a more natural look. Also since the light is reduced coming into the camera you are able to reduce the shutter speed manual, which has some positive effects. This is in layman's terms of course, as I'm not into videography that much and pretty much a novice. But I do use them, here's where I got mine for the Standard.
