It's becoming obvious to me that you are a wonderful teacher as well as a photographer. Your explanations make a sometimes complex subject seem very simple. Keep up the good work..

180 Degree Rule: Double the frame rate to get the best shutter speed for motion blur; as in 25 frames per second, shoot at 1/50th shutter speed. My concern is not so much people moving in my drone video, but the disturbing effect from flying over terrain, or when panning the drone. Would like to have as high as possible frame rate to keep sharp, but need somewhat slower frame rate to remove the disturbing "jitter" created by fast shutter speed. I guess I need to do the tests. Thanks for the explanation, it was clear.

I have watched SO MANY videos about ND filters, this is the only time they have been properly explained in my opinion!! Thanks so much 🙏🏻 now I know when to use the expensive set I bought and have never used!

Eurka! I get it now. You summed it up in a way that a hundred other people couldn't. "Allows you to set the correct shutter speed to get the appropriate motion blur."

Before I had a Mavic I never heard of ND filters. I've been reading so many tutorial and watched many movie clips over the last weeks. No wonder why there is so much confusion among photography "rookies" like myself. This tutorial rocks !! It clears up the myths, is simple to understand. No bull-straight-to-the-point explanation. Thank you so much and a huge thumbs up !! I will recommend this video from now on.

Thanks for the tutorial. I know why ND filters are used for film making but I would love to know more about using them for photography. I have read that because the Mavic has such a wide aperture it can make landscape photography very difficult unless you use an ND filter. Would you be able to make a tutorial on ND filters for photography also. Cheers!

another awesome tutorial sir! I am still trying to get all the way through the Masterclass 2.0 and have not made it all the way yet, which by the way I am learning so much, THANK YOU. I have been massively confused about filters and more so about adjusting the shutter speed for when trying to get the best exposure even when using ND filters. So I suppose my question would remain that the filters only prevent us from cranking up the shutter speed to much but it is ok to adjust the S SP based on the exposure presented at the time? I will be doing a ton of drone video this summer from my boat, typically on very bright sunny days, do you recommend using NDPL? I will also be videoing a huge fireworks show on July 4 ( in the middle of the fireworks, not from a distance ) what settings would you suggest? I am flying a Mavic 2 Zoom.

Thanks for the very clear explanation! Still not entirely sure WHY I would want motion blur however. Isn't a clear picture better than a blurred one? 🤔

This video sold me on ND filters. Thanks for the extremely detailed and clear explanation! My 2nd set of ND filters are on the way! Any advice when it comes to polarized, neutral-density, and… what’s the other one? 🤔 Regular density? I dunno. 🤷🏼‍♂️
