    Hi was just wondering when you decide on a POI and then enable the flight mode does the camera automatically tilt firstly to identify the POI selected and then adjust as the copter is panning or do it have to be controlled manually by the pilot? Thanks

    Your Phantom will point at the area of interest by default as it circles it. But, you can turn and shoot video or capture photos in a different direction by yawing.

    You have to have software like Litchi, for an example, to have the bird and camera do what you speak of.
    It will focus POI, interpolate, or do nothing depending on what you choose within the app. Among numerous other things available.

    No ... it's up to you to adjust the camera angle to show what you want to show.
