Drones have quickly evolved into powerful and sophisticated tools for aerial photography and filmmaking, making them desirable tools for a wide range of creatives and applications. In all that sophistication are a lot of nifty and useful features that are easy to overlook. This great video tutorial will show you nine great features you should check out on your drone.

Coming to you from Videomaker, this awesome video tutorial will show you nine useful and easily overlooked drone features. Along with return to home (RTH), my personal favorite is a simple one: bracketing. Though it is often hidden a few menu layers deep in the photo settings, you should become familiar with your drone's bracketing settings. The combination of a small sensor and scenes that often have extreme dynamic range can make it a real challenge for photographers to rein in the shadows and highlights, and one of the best ways to deal with this is simply to take three- or five-shot brackets. Most drones are stable enough that you can do this without needing to worry about issues with alignment and sharpness, and it will make your post-processing life a lot easier. Check out the video above for the full rundown.
