Alright, I see, thanks. I assume the values above 1/500ish are the shorter SS ones, i.e. 1/600 and so on. Still, watched some youtube video a few weeks ago with a guy explaining the necessity of shooting with shutter speed at twice the framerate for cinematic-looking videos, and have been under impression that one should just always aim for 1/60 when shooting at 30 fps. I do understand the folly of shooting, say, at 1/50 for it, having had some experience with rendering videos with source files having different fps, causing ugly interpolations, and with the ntsc/pal/secam stuff back during the vhs days, so I figure even if double the framerate can't be achieved, it better be divisible by it.
The drone's auto settings, however, seem indifferent to it, instead steering by its light meter adjusting ss every second or so. In pic related, which is a cropped corner of the image, it has chosen a shutter speed of 1/374 which isn't even close to a clear division by 30. I guess I should just go manual after all, for now, selecting as low a multiple of 30 as the scene allows without blowing the highlights. Wish it were possible through some other means other than having to fiddle with the touch screen, feels like a cheap camera.
With aperture being locked it seems the better way of filming video on a drone would be an equivalent of a shutter priority mode combined with autoiso and occasional AEL to keep it steady within the shot. Gonna have to go over the menus again, kind of annoying that some settings only become accessible with the drone in the air.
Still, to have a way of dealing with situations which are too bright and for those low level tracking shots during daytime, I reckon an ND8 and ND16 combo would do, right? Would've rather had an ND4 than ND16, but it only comes in a bundle that's slightly more expensive.
