Ok, I just did some testing with several different mapping solutions. All of this was over the same general area and as close I could with settings to be the same. This is all on the same hardware (tablet: ipad Pro, inspire 2 latest firmware x7 camera with 16mm lens). Sandisk Extreme Pro 64gb.
- DJI GS Pro – Was able to shoot every 2 seconds, jpg, no missing frames. Dead accurate GPS information and positioning.
- Map Pilot - Was able to shoot a DNG raw file every 5 seconds without fail. Accurate GPS.
- Drone deploy - Was able to shoot ON AVERAGE every 2 seconds, lots of timing variation and really odd GPS position information. Strangely, if you look at the actual source image spacing, it has just about the right amount of overlap, but whatever DD is doing for capture methods is causing failures.
I have not tried Pix4d capture yet.
Here’s a dropbox link if anyone wants to check out the sample images from these runs.
Here you can see timing, gps position, etc. There is something really wrong with drone deploy.
