Hey Everyone! I am finding it more and more difficult to sit through videos of drones flying around. So, I am trying to make them very short. This video seems like it is over before it starts. Just a little snippet. Here is one I made today. Vermont is normally spectacular in the Fall. This Fall has been so warm that it has not produced the nuclear, psychedelic foliage we usually see. However, I did manage to find a little spot on a cloudy day. Thank you for viewing.

Edit: Forgot the specs. Shot at 2.7K 24fps, D-Cinelike, 0,0,0, 100 ISO, white balance set to cloudy, manual exposure around 1/80 second with an ND 8 filter. I wasted most of a battery fiddiling with the ND filters today. I just could not get it right. I started with an ND 4 and realized I needed more. Even with an ND 16 I was getting some crazy readings with high shutter speeds. I finally gave up and figured 1/80 sec. was close enough. I think the results are pretty good.

Eddited in FCPX with some minor exposure adjustements mainlly to bring black levels down and then applied a 3D LUT.

Nice!  Where were you?  I didn't recognize the peaks - but that could have been the clouds.  The colors were great yesterday too.
I'm planning to head out Fri to get some shots.

Thanks.

Manchester. One shot is looking west toward My. Equinox. The other is looking north toward Dorset at Mt. Aeolus and Owl's Head.

Thank you. I am also mixing regular video with drone footage on short films. I just think that pure aerial videos for the most part are getting old. With so many drones in the hands of millions the novelty has really worn off. I mostly take stills and look for interesting compositions or patterns from above.
