Tap the Settings button on the Camera Controls bar to access settings.
The settings are divided in two tabs: Camera Mode and General Settings.
Use the top slider to adjust the amount of light (exposure) in the image. Choose Au (auto, the default) to let the camera choose the best settings, or select M (manual) to adjust all the available settings.
- ISO: Adjusts the camera's sensitivity to light. The higher the number, the higher the sensitivity. Choose from 100, 200, 400, 800, or 1600.
- Aperture: Adjusts the opening of the lens diaphragm. The smaller the number, the larger the opening - and thus more light reaching the lens.
- Shutter: Shutter speed also affects the amount of light reaching the lens, but this setting adjusts how long the shutter remains open. Longer (slower) speeds can increase blur and wash out images.
- Exposure Value: In Auto mode, you can use this selector to automatically adjust the ISO, Aperture and Shutter values to achieve the image quality you need. In Manual mode, Exposure Value becomes an indicator, showing the expected visual quality.
Some drones and advanced cameras also include A (Aperture) and S (Shutter) modes that provide limited manual control of each mode.
- Image Format Choose the image file format (JPEG, RAW, or JPEG+RAW)
- Image Size Sets the aspect ratio (4:3, 16:9, or 3:2 ratios)
- Video Settings: Choose the Video Format (MP4 or MOV) and
- Video Size Provides a range of sizes and frame rates
- White Balance: Adjusts the image color to compensate for different qualities of white light in the environment. Choose Auto(default) to let the camera choose the best settings, or select Cloudy, Fluorescent, Incandescent, or Sunny to correct the color to best suit current conditions.
- Center Points: Allows you to add a circle with square, circle without square, or crosshairs to the center of the active camera feed.
Additional settings are available for thermal cameras. Settings for gimbal control and media storage are also available from the status bar.
NOTE: Camera settings now persist across logins and active sessions, so you should not have to reset camera settings when logging in or restarting the app. However, this can result in unanticipated performance on subsequent uses of that camera. If your camera feed is all black or white, check to see if the Exposure setting is set to Manual. Either change the manual settings to fit the current light conditions, or change the Exposure setting to Auto.
