So I have a couple questions if any one could be most excellent to help me lol. When you are in manual mode with a nd like everyone says, and you go from shooting the ground to the sky and the exposure and lighting changes drastically, what do you do? I mean auto looks bad because you see the change in your videos and it looks weird, but idk sometimes it seems better? Idk.

Then also...when flying low over a river my drone would float with the current. How do you stop this? Turn off some kind of sensor?

Disable the VPS if you are wanting to fly low over water

Firstly, don't shoot as much sky, and do them as separate shots, don't try to do a transition tilt between the two scenes. I never leave my camera in auto-exposure for this reason, only fly in manual.

Hello kirkd1989, when you fly your phantom 3 over water, please keep a appropriate altitude. Besides, if necessary, you can turn off the VPS in the MC settings.

Given that this is in the P4 forum, you can't disable VPS.
However, some people have put sticky tape over the sensors when flying over water which seems to help.

We wrote an article, "Making better video with your DJI Phantom 4 / 3 / Inspire" that also covers manual settings and ND filters. Maybe some of the info can help you.

And like Geebax, already said do separate shots and set exposure for them separately. If you want to do a lot of combined /land sky shots consider using a graduated ND filter to even the exposure out a bit.

It would be nice if there was "shutter mode"  for Phantom video settings that locks shutter speed and keeps ISO auto, cuz its there when i use with OSMO x3.

And what's the best way to upload our content? When i upload from app to anything the quality isn't anything like I see with people's on line. Is there a difference if I upload straight from drone to computer?

Yes, use the files from the SD card instead.

after importing from the SD card, what is the best way to get them on IG and youtube and stuff without compressing it more than it needs to? I still see people online with phantom 3 pics more clear than mine...

A lot of that depends on post processing. We are working on an article that gets into specifics a bit more but as we currently still disagree on what's best that might take a while

A good place to start for youtube though is with their own recommendations.
