Hello,

Sorry if there is already a thread about this.

Is the 1080p at 48fps (I've seen this described some places) a firmware upgrade? I havn't been able to find it on my Phantom 3 Standard.

Thanks.

-Stephen

Where is that "advertised"?

The specs page reads as follows:

Video Recording Modes
  • 2.7K: 2704 x1520p 24/25/30 (29.97)
  • FHD: 1920x1080p 24/25/30
  • HD: 1280x720p 24/25/30/48/50/60

Hi, maybe not advertised, but I've seen it at least 3-4 places:
"... a third Phantom 3 model: the Standard. Second, it shoots "2.7K" video (2704x1520) at 30fps, 1080p video at up to 48fps, and 720p video at up to 60fps." http://arstechnica.com/gadgets/2015/08/flying-djis-new-phantom-3-standard-better-software-better-camera/

Or here: "The Standard, as with the rest of the range, comes equipped with a camera mounted on a motorised gimbal. The camera features a 1/2.3-inch, 12 million pixel sensor that is capable of capturing 2.7K video at 30fps, 1080p at 48 fps or 720p at 60fps" DJI Phantom 3 Standard hands on review | TechRadar

Is this not true?

I just threw mine on and there is no setting for 1080 with 48 fps. It's only 30 or 24 so that's why you can't find it.

Alright, thanks.

I guess it made sense to me that it would have 1080p at a higher frame rate than 2.7K, but I guess not.

Strange, has anyone else noticed how often reviews make that claim?

Here's another: "The Standard tops out at 48fps when shooting at 1080p":
DJI Phantom 3 Standard
Is strange but it's not in the app so they must be just wrong or the app is . Wonder where they get their info.

I don't know about you guys but my p3a has an option for 1080p at 48 fps. I tried it and it looks terrible, like a jerky 25 fps. I'll be going back to 30 fps.
