Anyone got a cheat sheet that they made up that get them "in the area" for just a regular night photos?..I know it certainly can change at moments notice..but I thought I would ask..

No cheat sheet but, RAW and Slower Shutter speed is a start.

What I do when doing night photos is something along these lines;
1. Manual Mode
2. Fairly long shutter time (if you go several seconds it will easily get blurry due to the movement)
3. 5-brackets to combine into HDR where you get more control of the lighting

I also always shoot in DNG RAW and I shoot in LOG-mode (for more dynamic range and freedom in post production. I think thats about it? And then; experimentation to see what works. It is not always equally light or dark when doing night photos.

Other thing to note is to turn the LED's off if using really long shutter times, it will bleed into the photo. Of course flying your quad with the lights off at night has other issues...
