    Hi everyone;

    Since I know very little about photography, I was wondering if someone could help me with the camera settings for my Phantom 3 Professional. I just tried to take some video (stationary of course) indoors and it came out very dark. Obviously all my videos will be taken outdoors in future but I have no idea what the camera settings should be.

    Getting around the different menus for this device is very confusing to me as I just don't know which buttons to press to get to the correct area to do something.

    If anyone could help me with this I would be most grateful. Thank you.

    Bud

    These are always my settings:
    4K - 30 fps
    White balance - 5700K (This may change but I only shoot on bright sunny days)
    Color - None (I don't colour grade at all, I go for the natural look)
    Style - I just leave it at 0,0,0 but I know a lot of people will say different
    ISO - 100
    Shutter - This changes, but I try to keep it around 60-100 depending on the brightness

    For an example of my settings, see the youtube video.
    The only thing is I filmed this in 24fps (forgot to change it to 30)
