Top Tips for Amazing Cinematic Drone Footage

I have just recently got into using quadcopters/drones for capturing video. With my background in film making I thought it would be useful to share what I have learned so far so you can get even more cinematic looking aerials.

UPDATE*** I have made a video on camera settings, check it out here:

My camera settings for the DJI Phantom 3 Professional are typically:

4096x2160p @24fps
Film Picture profile
Sharpness -1
Contrast -2
Saturation -2
