I'm a sports photographer (from the past) and am used to capturing instant photos where one has little time to adjust settings. The only two settings I adjusted for sports photography were white balance and shutter speed. I allowed the aperture to be set on auto to match my shutter speed based on the ISO and white balance.
When I fly Phantoms, depending on the time of day and lighting conditions, I will adjust the settings. I am pleased to say that DJI has an excellent auto adjustment system for most photography, so if a new photographer flew in auto mode, the result should come out pretty good.
When I fly the Typhoon, again it depends on time of day. Best images are in early morning or late evening. Middle of the day, images are all wrong. I avoid moving the camera from bright to dark lighting as the camera just can not handle the changes. It usually ends up getting the colors all wrong and it blows out the highlights. Have a look at 90% of the videos on this forum that owners have taken with the Typhoon H... you'll see the colors are either not correct, and/or over exposed or even under exposed. The Typhoon H suffers from not being able to auto set the exposure for the picture at hand. The basic fix is to film with the exposure manually set at -0.5 or less depending on the amount of light. Also the Gorgeous setting should only be used when you wish to saturate the colors. If you're doing post-processing, than Natural is a better option.
Many of the camera problems with the H, other than a defective lens, can be fixed with a firmware/software upgrade to both the Camera and the ST16. One day, Yuneec will have this out. Only other option is for Yuneec to start offering an upgraded camera, since it is removable after all. No company makes a removable camera if they don't plan on providing other camera options.
