Good evening (or good morning),

New pilot here from London. I've had the Mavic Pro for about three weeks, moved up from a Hubsan. The Pro is a fabulous drone (as you all know...), and I'm now comfortable with flying it. Now I need to address the video issues I'm having, which are certainly all caused by inexperience. My videos are all 'washed out' - I've tried adjusting the exposure using the controller, but without much success. I guess I'm going to have to invest in some filters - can anyone please guide me with some recommendations? Thank you!

Best regards - Chris

Any of the commonly used filter brands listed here would be a good choice.

Welcome...Thumbswayup
I purchased the Skyreat filter set from Amazon, well worth a look and a lot cheaper than the more well known names.
Came with a very nice discount and cost £21.00

It's probably not just about filters. Tom's Tech Time YT channel has a pretty good video on camera settings and a great one on drone camera techniques.
