HELP! Calling All Nighttime Drone Photographers!

Recommended Posts

Hello from West Palm Beach Florida.

I'm shooting some nighttime skyline shots of downtown West Palm Beach. With the settings below, I'm still getting a shaky shot. I understand how 'long exposure' / nighttime photography works on the ground / from a tripod, but I'm having some trouble with the aerials. 

I guess this won't let me attach a sample image.  Feel free to connect via my email & please introduce yourself.

Note: This is shot during civil twilight. 

Settings Used:

DJI Phantom 4 Pro V2.0

ISO: 100

Aperture: 2 (or lowest / most open)

Shutter: I've tried all options between 0.25s to 8s. 

Manual Focus Assistant - ON (Rack Focus)


Mechanical Shutter - OFF

Lock Gimbal - ON

FRONT LEDs- OFF (But I don't think they shut off)

Thanks all.
