    Hi folks
    I came across a recent thread in this forum with some fine still photo nightime examples taken with the Phantom. If I recall correctly, people were using 30 second exposures to get those nightime shots, but I cannot find any setting in the DJI Pilot app that allows you to do that - maximum I can see is 18seconds.

    Do I have that right? Are longer exposure times actually possible?

    thanks
    Martin

    Unless they changed it very recently, the maximum is eight seconds. Even as stable as the P3 can be, getting a usable photo at eight seconds takes perfect conditions and a bit of luck. Getting quality results at 30 would be out of the question.

    I think you mean 3 seconds. That seems to work for me.

    It's 3 second exposure for the cool night time shots.
