    I shot this tonight with my Inspire. 2 second exposure, 400ISO. I seriously can not believe how stable this craft and gimbal are! To be able to pull off a perfectly sharp 2 second exposure image from a uav is simply mind blowing. Has anyone else tried messing with longer exposure shots?

    Stunning, love the clarity. What other settings did you use? Any filter? Editing software?

    Cheers for any help, Mark

    The news needs to see this so they can understand "Quad Copters" are being used for beautiful things.
    Oh I forgot, the news does not report on cool stuff.

    Thank you! I shot it manual on the inspire. I processed it through Lightroom, some basic levels correction and a little boost in the shadows. No stock filters, just some random adjustments until I liked the look.

    Thanks, never ceases to amaze me how good these platforms are in the hands on a photographer. I can fly, easy, but film/photo capture another learning curve from point and shoot. Also use Lightroom 5.7.

    Thanks again, Mark

    A bit harsh, we're not all photographers, and this is the latest platform that most of us have had a few weeks at most, it's nice to swap ideas, tips, help etc. Yes you can google before you post I agree, or search on here before you post, but hey great people on here are doing great things with the I1, just getting it to take-off and land without putting it into a tree or on the White House lawn :) is an achievement considering some of the stories.

    And I apologise the older I get the more I get like Victor Meldrew. :)

    It probably was a little harsh (the older I get the grumpier I get) but I would have thought anybody who is serious enough to lay out the cash for an Inspire (which cannot be considered a beginners platform by any stretch of the imagination) is also serious enough about photography/videography to know what something as basic as long exposure is!

    Sorry - just my acid tongue o_O Apologies if I have offended anyone.
