I tried the new DJI 360 pano in auto exposure RAW+JPG on a non sunny day. In the 360 pano I got all overexposed pictures, in a other pano, a non 360 pano I got correct exposed pictures with the SAME settings. Anyone have that too? I had zebra stripes ON and the starting exposure was correct, without zebra stripes. I did not try to stich, I just looked at the pictures. They are totally over exposed.

Same here. I think the problem is that the photos are taken too quickly to allow the AE to find the right exposure levels before moving on to the next shot. Hangar 360 allows some time between takes for things to settle in, and I expect we'll see an update that addresses this shortly -- at least, we will if we all go and complain via the Go 4 feedback channel.  ;)

if you let the app stitch the sphere photo the result is only 1.40mb why am I doing something wrong?? The quality of the photo sphere seen in the Go4 App is very poor... i'm on android s7 edge

Yes, also getting the same results in sphere. You can probably save the pano by working with the RAW images, but clearly they should be better exposed at the time of taking. I was surprised how quickly they are taken in comparison to Litchi which seems to take its time (and do a good job)

Are any of you with the problem taping the screen to focus before using pano mode? The app tells you to do it right after you start it up. Maybe that will help? Just a guess.

Shouldn't make a difference except potentially in focus -- I can see AE adjusting, but the shutter trips before AE gets a good exposure level.

The size of the image depends on many factors. Please try to link the drone and download the original version of the pano. Or you can upload to Pixelsky and PM me the link, I will help to check.

Dji please fix this option, it's one of the best things about the mavic. The camera definitely needs to take the pics slower.

On the spark AE is locked when shooting the pano's.
Also a 1 second delay between the photo's taken is desirable, you can do a manual focus too on each photo before shooting.(like litchi). example:

I tried a 360 pano today and bits of it were overexposed - but not all the pictures. It appears the overexposed shots made it hard to stitch together.



I used DJI Media Maker and the end result looks better. However, I can't upload it to SkyPixel because it's not 2:1 ratio.

I had this too. I assume it tries to set a base exposure on the first shot, and if the first shot is the ground its likely to be over exposed.

Hi J.T., thank you so much for sending me the link. Have you tried to shot it in a good light condition? The sphere should be stitched on the app and can be shared to Skypixed directly. For your case, it would be nice if you can provide me with the original pics of this pano from the SD to Dropbox, and help to name the mobile device and app you are using, will help to check. Thank you so much.

As you request this whas taken in very good light condition   and this one too but the quality of the two photos stitched within the Go4 app remain very poor, the first image is only 1.37Mb and the second is only 1,63Mb.
I've taken the foto with pano sphere mode on jpeg all other settings in auto on an Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge and then stitched connectet with the mavic pro on the ground at the end of the flight
On the dropbox you need all the 34 photos or only the final result?

Hi there, the overexposure Sphere might because the all the EV of the pictures are depending on the first shot, so you can try to adjust the drone's direction to the start the shooting, or you can manually adjust the EV or shutter speed to the suitable one before you start it. See if it helps.

Hi sir, got your PM and it is confirmed normal. Please note that when you use the stitch function on the DJI GO 4 app, the size of the Sphere pano is depended on the details of the image, and the pixel might be not very good. So you can try to use other professional edit softwares to stitch the pano. Thank you.

I got the same problems with over expo, but since so many people compliant about it.  I don’t bother to upload anymore photos.  
I agree with Ex Machina.  The pano action is way too quick .... at least compare to Spark and Litchi do way better job.

Hi, same here. Even when setting exposure on -1, most of my panoramas came out overexposed. I'm usinv an ND16 filter on sunny days. I had to try multiple times to get a good panorama. I share ghe thought that pictures are taken too fast and the camera does not hqve the time to adapt fast enough. I will probably switch back to Litchi, which I was using with my Phantom 3.

The over exposure is caused by two things. 1. The speed at which each picture is taken and 2. The order. Dji takes the pictures in a vertical order, unlike litchi. Which means it points at the bright sky then the not so bright horizon and if you are over something like water the bright ground. This range of contrast combined with speed causes over exposure. Both can easily be fixed by DJI and if and when they do you will have great sphere photos. Until then try the litchi app

@ DJI Thor:
When I made the 360 with over exposed pictures the setting for the photo's was set to auto. I did start away from the sun, with no overexposed screen. I did have a exposure graph on screen so I could check every picture if the graph would tell me overexposure. For every picture it took, the graph was correct, so technically NO over exposure on the moment of capturing it seems. On the sdcard however, all are overexposed. Even on days without any sun.
I solved it now by setting the pictures in manual mode now. BUT what I see there as well is the following: I start away from the sun. I set my EV at 0. Start the 360 pano. It does not stay at the 0EV, but for all puctures it is set to -2EV. That result is good enough in result to correct in post. I will put some of the pano's in a Onedrive with link, I do not use dropbox

I just sent a ticket into DJI support, since I'm having the same problem .... but don't have the problem in Litchi

See difference:

DJI 4 Overexposure

360 Taken With Litchi

After a few back and forth emails, they claim that

(1) There is no bug in the software
(2) They want me to send my unit in.

I'm leary of doing this, considering how many other people are having the same problem.

I'll send the link to this thread to support and see what their answer is.

Where both panos taken the same time? Looks like Litchi can do the job better.
Did you use the same program for finishing both?
