It will soon be the night of whizzes and bangs, I’m hoping to get my Mavic airborne to catch some displays, any tips ?. My biggest concern is getting hit by a rocket
It’d be great to get some pictures and videos.
I guess altitude is key? How high does the average rocket go?
The odds of getting struck must be really slim though! There’s a lot of airspace up there
What sort of settings would you use for capture?
I’m thinking need a higish ISO hope to get away with 400, my photography background would use a long exposure so need to factor that into video.
Some thought will need to be given to location too I guess.
Any big organised displays you were thinking of capturing?
Don’t know what it’s like where you live, but round this way it sounds like world war three is taking place - it’s absolute mayhem. You could take off from pretty much anywhere in a ten mile radius here and you’d not be short of fireworks to film
Local to me Buile hill park put on a decent display, last year I planned to take some photos from Media city getting the fireworks in the background, unfortunately I miss calculated and didn’t see anything lol. Will try from a little closer this year.
I did think of going to the Fireworks world championships in Blackpool but didnt get around to it
