Had my second flight today Air 2s  and as with my first flight with different camera setting the footage shows the camera refocusing in the recorded footage, has anybody had this issue or is there a setting I’m not aware of that prevents this happening

Have you looked at the file on the SD card, is it also the same?

Videoeditman-- those clips look like the hi-res from the card.

FlanniganFlyer-- Seems like an issue on the camera especially if you've tried various resolutions. Best to reach out to DJI support on this.

Resolved, it wasn’t easy to find how to change from MF to AF but I found a video tutorial on how to change between them, thanks all for your input

I’ve had this issue from time to time. I don’t understand why that should be happening on manual focus? Sometimes it ruined a few clips.  I can understand autofocus doing that, but not manual?  I think the focus feature is a bit lacking on this drone so far, hopefully it will be resolved.

Yes what few clips I’ve been able to get because of the weather have all been ruined because of the focus shift, I will try the AF setting next time I’m able to get out flying

Thank you, that’s a great video but I don’t understand how it applies to the MF/AF issues seen in the videos you originally posted. What am I missing here?

Here's the video i was talking about and the MF to AF setting is at the time stamp 12min 13sec, but it's a good all round tutorial worth the watch
