    Curious to know if using the SRP ND8/CP or the regular ND8 for fireworks this weekend would be a good idea.

    Of course I will be filming at night. Do you recommend using one of these filters for fireworks at night? If so, explain why?

    Or would you use no filter?

    No. At night you need all the light you can get.

    I've yet to do this with a quad. Can anyone recommend settings for this? ISO and shutter speed. I was thinking that you can be flexible with ISO but shutter speed will need to be 1/30 to 1/60 or greater depending if you want blur from the fireworks vs sharpness. anyone have any recomendations?

    Subscribing.

    I'm wondering about settings as well. I want to try a longer exposure to capture the fireworks and the ground lighting.
