    I was try to get a video of harvest moon the other night.The video was cloudy. Just looking
    at it with your eyes it was bright and white. Is there a setting on the camera I should be doing?

    HOw about long exposure shooting? Drop the iso to 100-400 and then crank up the shutter to 1-4 seconds(allthe way right)... those are the settings that are usually used for night time photography

    For capturing the moon, you can mess with the gimbal settings to allow the camera to look all the way up. I just don't know if that is how it was stock since it was locked when I bought mine used, but you can unlock it so that the camera rolls safely up, but be warned: The two arms and props will show in the field of view.
