Just started using DD a few days ago with my P4P on android. Made two maps with DD in auto mode for Camera settings, but noticed the exposure was a little too high and possibly a little blurry from the shutter being too slow maybe. So the next maps I set the camera to manual on DD and set the camera on the P4P using the DJI app.
At first I used shutter priority mode on the DJI app with a shutter speed of 500 I believe. Set white balance to Sunny and ISO to 100. I did all of this while at my mapping altitude. So I exited the DJI app, closed it, and started the DD where I proceeded to map my area. Everything looked fine on the picture window in the corner of the screen, but when I got home with the pictures and looked at them before uploading them I see they were all underexposed. After looking at the metadata for the pics I see the shutter had increased to 800, from 500 where I set it.
So I started up the DJI app again to see what the camera settings were and everything was on auto, even White balance. The ISO was still 100.
So i then set the camera to manual mode and sunny white balance. Set all the settings where I wanted them and tried again. It once again changed shutter speed, but everything else was still where I set it I think.
I tried mapping a test area multiple times. At first the camera view in the corner always showed a bright image. But in some of the later flights it would start bright then go dark. At first the live view would be bright but the images it was capturing were dark. I had one pass where it made it about halfway through a pass using the manual settings, but then it increased shutter speed and I once again got dark images. Most of the time I get all underexposed images, except for the test shot DD does right at the beggining.
So long story short, it appears something is changing my Manual camera mode to Auto at some point. As well as my white balance from Sunny to Auto. And somtetimes it will still be in manual mode, but change shutter speed at some point.
Any Ideas or people seeing this as well.
