    I have a P3 Pro and plan on filming a fireworks show on the 4th of July that we put on every year at a lake we live on. We have a platform about 300' off shore that we launch everything from.

    What settings would be best to do so? I plan on keeping the P3 above as stationary as possible while doing so about 200' up and about 300' away.

    Thanks for advice.

    I don't have any advice, but I am very anxious to hear from people who have done this as well.

    You'll want the lowest ISO possible to avoid noise but you need at least 1/30th shutter speed or maybe you can do 1/24th for 24fps. Not really any settings you can do besides shooting in Log color to help in post processing.
    Don't fly too close to the exploding fireballs!
