Hello everyone. I will be shooting some after dark video and stills of decorative lights with the Inspire. I would appreciate some recommended settings for the camera. I plan to shoot in 4K video 30fps...and RAW stills. Thank you, in advance, for yourtime and advice.
 
Hey Pete! For video, I would just try to get close enough to get a good auto exposure on the subject lights and then lock exposure. You don't want auto exp to jack up the ISO on dark scenes, or it will be pretty noisy. However, if you are on Android, I did have trouble finding exp lock and I'm not sure it's supported. If that's the case, just manually expose for the lights and then stay manual.

With RAW stills, I'd use the same approach. Of course, the benefit with RAW is you'll have a bit more range to work with in post.
