Shoot in 4K 60 & 1080p 240

-> The 60 frames per second allows you to slow down your video, while still taking advantages of the 4K resolution.
-> The 1080p, is pretty grainy and aliased if you're not shooting in ideal lighting situations.
-> Use the 240fps in very bright locations in special circumstances, adding a higher ISO with this is a recipe for grainy footage.

Know When To Use HDR & When To Shoot Regular Video

-> HDR video is best suited for high contrast scenes with brilliant highlights and dark shadows. HDR video is an auto option, which means you can't change the shutter speed, ISO, or other settings. The exposure value can be changed.
-> If you want to colour grade your footage to create a certain aesthetic, you should shoot with ordinary video, pick the suitable colour profile, camera settings, then colour grade the material manually.

Use D-Cinelike If You Want To Colour Grade

-> Stick on one image profile if you want to colour grade your film so you don't have to try to match the colour grade on HDR, Normal, and D-Cinelike footage, which might be difficult.

Know when to shoot 12mp stills or 48mp stills, but always shoot JPG + RAW

-> Shooting in the JPG + RAW option will give you the most room to work with the image when it comes to post production.

Try out FPV mode

-> When you set your drone in FPV mode, the camera will track the pitch of your drone and respond to your instructions. This provides for certain unique views that are not possible with Follow Mode.
