Hi everyone,

Since the Christmas season is here, I wanted to know with what phantom 4 settings I can capture the night lights the best with.

I haven't used my drone for any night shots, so I'm curious as to what would bring the best quality out of my camera.

I know some people have complained about the grain that appears when you raise the ISO, so is there any way I can avoid that and still capture amazing footages in the nighttime?

Thanks!

Use the lense that came with the camera and set ISO to 100 or 200 and then reduce the shutter speed until the ev is close to zero

It's a trade off between grain (or noise) and less sharpness at very low shutter speeds due to camera shake. You can take it up and experiment with different ISO settings (leaving the camera on auto) to see which you are happy with. Windy conditions will of course be more likely to cause camera shake.
