Hello to everybody,
today I was playing with my bird and I saw something that I've never seen. Someone  please can watch the video and tell me what was happen? The daylight was strange but what I saw in the video was much more.

Thanks to all.

Hi Thriller. Good day and thank you for the inquiry. I noticed on the video that propellers shadow was captured on the right side of the video recording. It might be that the sun is at the back of the drone when you shot the video. Thank you. Have a safe and happy flying.

Yes, prop shadows. I had that too, mostly on sunny days on certain camera angles. Since I i started using ND filters on sunny days, the prop shadows seems to be reduced. I hardly ever have seen it again. Anyone noticed the same?

Thanks for your answer. You can easily understand the sun position looking at the trees shadow on the ground.

Thanks El Diablo and thanks Montfrooij.
When I took off yesterday I was scared because I saw the video full of  rows but when I turned from that position the lines disappeared. Today I went to the same place at the same time with the same angle and I wasn't be able to remake that situation... yes the light was very strange yesterday.
Thanks to all again for kindly replies.

Sometimes the rule of thirds isn't effective with drones at certain angles to the sun. Tilt down slightly and any banding caused by the props will go.

It is certainly something to think about with the angle of the sun in some conditions.   Also useful to know about the ND filters alleviating it.

Hi CW, the 'Rule of Thirds' is mainly to place the subject of interest in one third of the frame to make the composition more interesting. You don't necessarily need to divide the image in even parts (1/3 sky, 1/3 mid ground and 1/3 foreground).

Agreed - that's why I said it is not necessarily effective. If the sky is very bright then using that 'technique' can turn the foreground into a black mess and enhance banding.
