Comparison footage of DJI PHANTOM 4 PRO's camera using codecs H.265 and H.264 in D-Log.

ALWAYS USE H.264 for D-Log.
Tested with the latest firmware update - April 2017.
The P4P uses the following bitrates to record at the various resolutions for H.264 and H.265.

4K:3840×2160 24/25/30p @100Mbps
2.7K:2720×1530 24/25/30p @65Mbps
2.7K:2720×1530 48/50/60p @80Mbps
FHD:1920×1080 24/25/30p @50Mbps

The only difference between 4096×2160 and 3840×2160 is that the latter is 256...
Does anyone know if the Phantom 3 Pro 4k is going to upgrade their video codec from H.264 to the new H.265 high compression codec used by Roku and other 4K UHD streaming devices. Right now the .mp4 4K files will not play on Vizeo M series Televisions because they need the H.265 to play back...
