    I am wondering if you guys take all filters off in low light? I accidentally shot with a ND8 and it came out pretty dark. Do you guys remove all filters for low lift sunrise or is there a specific filter to use ? Shooting with P3P

    Try an ND4 for shooting around sunrise and sunset.

    I like to leave my nd16 in place if i plan to shoot into/towards a low slung evening but bright sun. Otherwise I do like msinger or sometimes late evening, I put the clear lens cover back on.

    This was shot from a P3P with a PL-ND4 filter at 400' AGL.

    ND filters are like sunglasses, I wouldn't use them at night.

    Low light go with manual settings, a higher ISO and higher shutter speed. Pitch dark I got good results shooting a distant town with ISO 800 and 4 second shutter.

    Sunset settings wouldn't need to be that high. Remember you can instantly review your shots by pressing the Play button the lower right of DJI Go app, if the shot is too light go lower on ISO and shutter, if it is too dark go higher on ISO and shutter.
