Hi everyone,
This looks like a great forum for phantom.!looking forward to chatting with you all.
In regards to phantom 4, I brought my husband a phantom 4 pro plus for his Birthday. We took it out to fly last weekend and the video footage is clear but the photos are blurry.. any advice for this problem? I thought it might be the gimbal turning around to much but I ddI a gimbal calibration and it didn’t fix the blurry photos.

Any advise would be great.
Thanks :)

Welcome to the forum, from central US! I can't give any advice on the P4, as I just got mine today! Lots of smart people here though. They'll have an answer for your issue!

Now that I think about it, I'm gonna ask... Did you remove the protective film from the camera lens? Sounds simple, but I forgot on my P3. Took a little head scratching before I noticed. Others will probably ask as well.

ND filters are good for motion blur for videos but can blur photos. Were ND filters being used? Maybe the shutter speed was too low.

Where are you in Oz?

You are a wonderful wife, and have a very lucky husband.
Sometimes you may feel like a dartboard here with all the answers coming at you. It occasionally takes a while for the right answer. And welcome to the forum.

Did you focus the camera before taking the photos? Here are some helpful videos on that topic:

Thank you misinger. I needed that info too. That’s a video save. My instruction of the day. A big one.

Welcome to PhantomPilots from Dayton Ohio!
Make sure you are tapping on the point you want to focus on prior to taking the photo, or half-press the shutter button on the controller and it will auto-focus on the center of the screen.
Enjoy your new P4P, Fly safe and have fun!
