Today got my For Fotodiox filters and wanted to give them a shot on my Phantom 3 Standard

So I went outside and it was VERY VERY BRIGHT, NO CLOUDS day.

Camera was set to MANUAL
VIDEO SIZE 1920X1080 24PFS
ISO 100
SHUTTER 50
EV NOTED +2.0

So I put the ND4 on and it did very little, the screen was still a wash out white
So I put on the ND8 a little better but still a wash, EV as only +1.7
So I put on the ND16 and the EV was +1.3 still not at 0 but better, but far from being a good video

I didn't have a higher ND so I left the ND16 on and I changed the shutter to 80 and the EV was +.3 and it was a great video ..... I looked at it on my computer and at this setting it was great.

I have been lead to believe that by changing the shutter to a higher number , the clerity is not the best . Would it better if I ushed a higher ND filter (if I had one) and left the shutter at 50 ???

Try Auto setting on the camera, and see where the controls are set.
Then go to Manual, and experiment...

Adjust the exposure wheel, on the right front of your RC. See if that might help.

Don't have a right wheel on my RC, did the experiment, wasted a battery and a half to find out my ND filters don't reduce the glare and might have no choice but to increase the shutter speed. The video is still great but just wondering if I'm loosing something by increasing the shutter while keeping the ND16 on

Put EV to -0.7 or something.
That will lower the 'average' exposure metering.

I agree but how do you do that ?
Its my understanding you try to get the EV as close to 0 as possible and that can only be done by;

a) filter
b) shuttter
c) fp

Is there another way with the Phantom 3 Std camera settings ??

What I usually do (not with P3, I don't own that) is lower the EV to -0.7.
That way I get a little darker image and not so many over exposed parts.

Not sure if it's the same with the P3, but here at 24:10 a youtuber lowers the EV.
