This question is going to sound weird, I’m cringing at myself as I ask, but here it goes.
I had been flying my phantom 4 pro v2 with the DD planning app on my ipad. The photos that were captured were always 4864 x 3648 pixels. I never thought much of it and didn’t crunch the math, but that is 17.7 megapixels (1.333 aspect ratio.) The phantom 4 pro v2 has a 20 megapixel camera.
My mavic also has a 20 megapixel camera and captures images that are 5472 x 3648. (this is 1.5 aspect ratio.) Again, wasn’t paying too close of attention, but that computes out to a true 20 megapixel size.
Now, due to some ipad vs. DD issues, I tested out the pix4d capture program on Monday, and when flying with that app, all my phantom 4 pro v2 images are coming back as 5472 x 3648 resolution … the full 20 megapixel.
So this is weird, and I’m dumb to be just noticing it now. I haven’t seen anything in the DD app where I would set the aspect ratio of my images or ask for a lower megapixel. Can anyone explain what’s going on or explain what I must have done to get smaller images when flying with the DD app? I’m confused …
