I'm getting some pretty terrible footage/stills out of my Typhoon H after the first flight today. I have 1/60 shutter, manual WB, and a Polar Pro ND 16 on the lens. Should I not shoot in the log mode? Is 1/60 shutter too low? Do Polar Pros stink?
I thought it might be vibrations from the copter that is ruining the shot. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
As others have mentioned, your settings on the Typhoon H don't account for the blurriness. I just received my Typhoon H back from Yuneec (it was replaced). The camera is blurry on the left side of my video and pictures. Also the left side outer distortion is more than it should be. This tells me that the lens is not properly adjusted. My lens is clean and my tests were done with the lens cover off so as to remove any contamination from a smudged or not-perfect glass lens cover. I've let Yuneec know.
You can try what I tried to be 100% certain. Take the lens cover off. Ensure the actual camera lens is clean and free of all dust or smudges. Place your Typhoon on a table, outside on a sunny day. Set camera on AWB. Face it at at objects that are at least 50 feet away (could be stationary items like houses, cars, trees, etc). Snap a photo, then pan the camera slightly right, snap another photo & carry on over and over until you have about 180 degrees of photos. Have a look at them and see if one or two of the same objects are sharp in all photos. Finally do the same in video but with a slow 360 pan. Everything in the photo should appear in focus no matter where the camera is pointing. If there is any loss of focus, it should occur extremely near the outer edges, but only slightly.
