You will probably agree that right out from the box your DJI Phantom 4 is already a good flying camera. Having the ability to shoot 4K drone footage or video as well as having the ability to do slow motion is great.

To clean the lens prefer Zeiss Lens cleaner. In the end, Zeiss knows lenses so it is sensible they also know how to clean them. When were on the go well frequently bring some Zeiss pre moistened lens cleaning wipes instead.
They’re smaller and much more convenient to carry around. And if you do indeed prefer another brand please share it with us in the comments so we may try it out.

The next thing well want to do is to decide if we want a more film look or a sharper\/more crisp look. To attain the more cinematic look well set the camera to film at 24 fps in 4k. Whenever you know you will always be watching the drone footage at 16: 9 you can choose 24 fps in UHD instead. This may prevent the letterbox effect that you’ll get when watching 4k footage on a 16: 9 screen. If you would like your footage to have a soap series look as opposed to a cinematic look, shoot at 30 fps in UHD instead. Those are the default frame rates.
