HI Guys,

I have had my Phantom 4 for a couple of months now and just got the ND filters 8 & 4 from DJI. This is the first flight using both together and recording D-log. Edited quickly on Final Cut. I would love feedback on the exposure, saturation, settings used & smoothness of video etc. I know I won't win awards for content lol. I had settings at iso 100, 24 fps and shutter speed of 1/50. all thoughts welcome and appreciated.

The video does have more of that cinematic look to it. That's good . Which ND filter the 8 or the 4?

Thanks BDOG

I used both at the same time as I didn't have 16. So stacked the 4 and the 8 in 1 mount. This looked good (exposure wise) on the histogram for the most part except some overexposure on concert hall at end.

Thanks

I liked it but I feel the transitions into the next seen seemed a little harsh. Maybe give them a slight taper at the end and beginning of each scene so it's a little more gentle as when I watched the video it was the thing I focused on more than you flying around. Seemed quite smooth though and add some music for dramatic cinematic effect :)

Hi YoshiK1

Thank you for that. Yeah I agree video is quite jumpy in the transitions. The main purpose of this video was just to try the ND filters and settings but totally agree with your feedback. Thanks.

Sorry I totally never mentioned any of that haha. I can't expand the video so it's only a small window I can see. With that said the exposure looks good to me. A pinch more of saturation and contrast would make it pop a little more but that could be because of the small window I think that. Flying was very smooth and the camera movements were also. Good job :D

Nice blacks with details, strong mids. God choice for two tonning.


Be carefull with uneven correcting of the sky during the primary color correction.

You have my like ;)

Great feedback. Thank you for taking the time. Yeah I didn't notice the sky until you mentioned. Perfect.

Thanks again
