Cheers, a just use Lightroom and some photoshop to clean stuff up.  The most important thing with the pictures is having taken them using Nd filters.  The more control you have with taken the photo helps massively when your editing them afterwards, well that's my theory

ND filters might be useful for video but not for stills on a Phantom.

+1 to the above post, ND filters on a Phantom are not that important, coming from a DSLR background, i use them for slowing down the shutter speed when photographing waterfalls to show a movement effect on the water, but on Phantom unless there a reason you need a slow shutter, you wont need an ND, a Polariser will be most useful, but getting the polariser at the right orientation will be a tricky one.

Having more control over highlights is why a use them, on a mirror-less or dslr sure a only use them for slow shutter stuff.  A only use the phantom in really bright conditions am surprised by people not using them to have a wee bit more control.  

Do you have any examples of your photography from the drone in sunshine, just so a can see if am doing something wrong

A use a Nd8 filter most of the time, don't just take my word for it though check out examples of people's pictures taken with them not just their words

Hi mate,

Its definitely not wrong, did not mean that, an ND on a quad is more apt for videos, because videos need a slower shutter speed to show movement....

so by using an ND, all you do is slow down the shutter speed in turn allowing more light for a mean exposure for the scene, so control of highlights are not really achieved by an ND, you are essentially exposing the same scene in a different shutter speed, instead of say 1/1000, you might expose at 1/500.

if you are using a split or a graduated ND then you have a different exposure on the different parts of the image.

Here are 2 images of greater dynamic range situations, you can take 5 or 3 exposures in AEB mode and then merge them together to get better control of highlights.

this one is using a DSLR Canon 5D (3 images merged, would have preferred 5, my bad)


This one is no the P4 (5 images merged)

As an experiment you can try with and without ND, if you get an exposure of 1/1000 without an ND, and 1/500 with an ND, turn the exposure wheel on the phantoms controller to get 1/500 and see the results.

These are just my understanding of the basics of ND and photography, happy to be proven otherwise if an ND really makes the exposure different.

Your photo is a prime example of what am talking about, your highlights around the sun look over processed.  A find it really surprising anyone that has ever used a camera doesn't use them when needed to put the sunglasses on the camera.  Check out my proper camera stuff here https://www.facebook.com/Hilophotography

Its not over processed, its because of the high dynamic range and just 3 photos in the merge, thats why i said need 5 to get the exposure right.

fine if you think sunglasses are the answer to getting the highlights correctly exposed, then thats not the right approach, but am not going to argue here.

Again an ND has a different use, not what a lot of people use for getting a better exposure.
