Dear all,
anyone knows if it is possible to recover also the height at which a photo/video has been recorded?
Inside exif data I am not able to see it.

Thanks in advance for any answer

if you look in the flight log from your flight then i believe it shows when pictures are taken - you can then look at the altitude in the flight log at that time. also to note that if flying over uneven terrain the height provided will be relative to your launch site height and not the height from the ground if flying higher up or lower down the hill.

Bee sure Video Caption is turned on in Camera Advanced settings.
You should get .STR file with each video file if it's on.

Forgot that all altitude info in EXIF are based on ASL not take off point so it's not accurate.
Can bee + - 20 m in altitude.

Yes sure, thanks Bekaru, but I wishes to have the altitude into exif data, saved into photo. I will try as suggested by G_Sig

I saw that this setting is made in order to have the .STR file with all datas for videos, but...do you confirm that with this setting OFF you also have not the altitude on photos exif? Did you try that?

Have not tested it so I went out and tested it.
You are right it don't matter.
You are using Mavic Pro? If its Mavic Air there is a tread about that.

With Video caption off.

If you flew the drone in a place with GPS signal, the altitude above sea level will be recorded, you can recover it when reading the image attributes.
For video, when video captions enabled, BAROMETER will be recorded. Hope it helps.

IT uses GPS altitude in the EFIX data which can be out by 20m or more.
