    Hello All,

    I decided to film a waterfall rather late in the day and am wondering if there was something i could of done better with the camera settings?

    To get a bright enough picture to fly I had to set my iso at 3200 and shutter at 40 so things didn't get blurry due to the movement.

    Obviously i could of flown earlier but i really wanted to get a cloud reveal.

    I did use Photon Pro (noise reduction) in the first clip but its still not that great..

    Would 1600 iso and a shutter of 25 been better?

    Not sure what you used to edit the video in, but in Premiere I would probably have used shadows/highlights to bring it up, the beginning of the video especially you have a real strong magenta cast so your color balance is off unless you wanted it that way. I would adjust before doing noise reduction.

    I would have shot the video earlier in the day, as you yourself suggested, and then returned later for your cloud reveal shot. Then just edit them together. No one will know they were not shot at the same time. :cool:
