I have both the Inspire and P3.  Aftering updating the firmware today and recalibrating IMU, I noticed that I cannot enter manual settings the same as on the I1.  In fact, I cannot adjust EV at all.  Without ND filters the camera is not suitable for shooting videos.  

What am I missing?

As far as I know it's a different layout to the Inspire. Once you click the sliders Icon below the big shutter button on the right of the screen  then you're in manual mode. When you exit that screen, your back in auto

Tapping on the settings icon opens another window where you can adjust either ISO or Shutter speed. If you use the camera setting icon to close that window, you just go back into Auto mode!

You have to close the adjustment window by swiping it off the screen.

The really big clue is the camera settings icon - if it's highlighted, you're in manual mode.
If it isn't highlighted, you're in AUTO.

Thanks for the replies.  I cannot adjust the EV setting in either auto nor manual mode on the P3, however there is an adjustment that is a available on the Inspire when you hit the sliders icon.   How is it possible to shoot acceptable footage without NDs during the day?  Even on an overcast day the minimum shutter speed has to be around 1/500 to avoid over exposing which we all know happens to video shot at high shutter speeds.

I'm ordering the Renaat ND filters.  This looks like the only fix until DJI releases a camera with aperture control.

Something is not right. You should be able to adjust exposure.

To change EV in auto mode you roll the the wheel on the top right of the transmitter to the left or right

But how can you adjust EV in manual mode?
