First attempt at night time photo. A little grainer then I wanted. I am still getting used to the camera and didnt understand when it was in Auto and when it was not. I do now however.

When you say auto, are you referring to auto white balance or is there a manual shooting mode that Idon't know of. I love taking night shots with my dslr but the P3 gives new opportunities for nice shots like yours.

Yes so there is a button on the DJI App all the way down in the lower right hand corner below the shutter and playback button. When you click that you gain control over ISO and Shutter. This is about as close to manual as you can get as far as I can tell. WB is set in a different menu which is located above the shutter and looks like a camera with a Gear on it. There is no control over Aperture as far as I can tell even though it says so in the Manual. I would love a DJI Rep to tell us if Aperture and Focus control will every be available for manual override.

What I didn't realize is once you set the ISO and Shutter speed and close the window the button in the lower right hand corner will light up BLUE giving you visual confirmation that you are using manual settings. If you tap it again it goes back to full Auto mode and is not blue anymore. I accidentally hit it a second time after setting up for a long exposure and didn't realize it until I got home. So this panorama is shot at about 980ISO at around 1/60th if I remember correctly. So I did a ton of noise reduction and some smoothing to get it out right but honestly it still did pretty good considering many digital cameras these days have a horrible time with low light photos.

Awesome thanks for the info. The photo looks good. Did you use Lightroom for noise reduction? I have found it can do wonders.

For Panorama shots do you just take multiple photos and stitch them in post? - Adam

Wow. The colors really look crisp. Phantom 3 seems to be a capable little camera. Great job! Cant wait to see more!
