A couple of DO’s and DONT’s – firstly DON’T fly in AWB (Auto White Balance) not only will all your film parts look different you are asking for trouble in post production, especially when trying to grade your footage.
DO use ND filters where possible, not only does this slow down your shutter speed but it makes your drone much more versatile to shoot in more conditions, especially when the outside is bright and avoids over exposure of the whites.
DO keep your ISO as low as you can, higher ISO means less quality, check your histogram for every change you make, same with over all exposure.
DON’T over expose your scene, try and keep your exposure to a 1/3 of a stop under or around 1/2 a stop.
DON’T over sharpen your custom settings, DJI does a decent job of sharpening, anything over +1 will destroy any in camera changes.
DO use AE or exposure lock before you start filming, keeps the scene consistent.
HD acquisition: use 2.7K (either 24 or 25 fps dependent on NTSC or PAL area) looks best.

Video Format: MOV (personal preerance, MP4 is fine also)
NTSC/PAL: PAL for Europe – NTSC for North America
White Balance: whenever possible choose a fixed white balance.
