Smooth and hd setting within DJI fly app V 1.6.9 iOS

Firstly sorry to post another question today.
Ok so I’ve been out this afternoon ( with drone ) and to cut a long story short when I got to my third battery after already using a bit of juice from another 2 ( I was waiting for sun to go down ) I kept noticing very grainy like moving pixels on my phone screen I phone 12 what ever I tried EV settings different ND filter , clean the lenses you name it I tried it , it was like it was also out of focus up close or further away I just could not work it out and blurry sometimes ( it looked like It was drone footage from cheap B&M drone ) , anyhow I’ve come home to take another look at everything before I try to work out if there’s a problem , on doing so I noticed under transmission within the fly app where you have HD or Smooth neither one of them was on never noticed this ever as it’s usually one or the other and as far as I’m aware you ( can’t ) turn both off , does anyone kindly know if the transmission feed as stated can or would cause a problem with photo images I really would appreciate some help or thoughts and I thank you in advance ……
Sorry the feed was terrible :+1:t2:

Question, why are using an ND filter ?

I was down by the Thames and the sun was bright and was going too try a bit more motion blur but then decided on other interests .

Can I just add although I ended up using auto but prior was using pro for the iso and shutter speed for motion blur , when I checked the iso was at 200 but as said using in auto .

Edit : just to add I’ve just connected everything back up and after everytime I close the app my setting for smooth or Hd has gone :thinking:

I have never touched this setting, can’t even recall it being there. But … if it’s under transmission, then it will only affect what you see on the phone whilst flying, not what is saved to the drone’s SD card.

Other than manual panos … I very rarely use anything but Auto :man_shrugging:

That’s why I saw crap feed :+1:t2:

I forgot my sd card so what I see on my screen went straight to my phone in photo album do you think maybe that an educated guess that kinda makes sense
Many thanks

If you are referring to the cached video that is stored in the phone’s album, then yes. That is lo-res, very compressed, horrible, nasty stuff that shouldn’t be used for anything decent. You will need the SD card for uncompressed, RAW content.
