I know its been explained on here but I cant find it. Wondering what manual camera settings do you use when you shoot at night? And if its with a higher shutter rate, does that mean the footage at night doesn't look as good as its during the day when you are able to have a lower shutter rate closer to double your fps? Hope that makes sense.



Thanks guys

it depends on the spill of lights which can effect artefact distortions(u get a sort of grain effect)...the best way to probably answer this is to always try a few test camera pics, and a short video, experiment with the ISO,  shutter speed and exposure time in camera settings...there are a couple of YuTube videos showing this, u can test camera settings indoors with a TV test pattern for colour chart...the other action to mention is post production changes can be made useing some simple cheap , often free apps..

Thanks! I participated in one of those threads. Since then I did shoot a pretty decent video at night. I used dlog and did some color grading in post. The super amazing thing with this was that it was shot WITH an ND8 filter on the Phantom 4. (My stock lens came with some gunk on it and I am waiting on them to ship the part.)I don't really remember the settings exactly, but you experiment. I actually wish I would have tried to push the shutter slower, but..... you do what you can you know. Just try different things. Learning to shoot in dlog and post process is the difference between taking a photo in auto and using Photoshop.

I think night is best for IR photography, so I'm guessing that video using IR is better, makes living things as the subjects.
