As part of the new firmware I've noticed that I can't change from taking photos to taking a video without landing the copter first.

Do we know the reason why? And can this be changed back please!

The release note from September 07, 2105 had a note in them about that, but I'm on the wrong computer to pull it up.

DJI has made another change today and now shows September 08, 2015 for a release.

If you want to change from "single shot," "burst mode," HDR, "time lapse," etc., you have to exit from photo mode first. Seems kinda strange, but that's what it implies.

I don't take many photos - almost always run video, so it doesn't matter to me.

Maybe the update dated 8 September changes that.

I noticed the last few flights a similar problem of it hesitating or locking up when using the app to switch from photo to video.  But when I used the hard buttons on the remote, it seemed to work.

My reference to that date came from a post above by gregg1r - I should not have mentioned the date without checking it out.

No offense to Gregg intended - I just quoted something I probably should not have quoted - my apologies.

I smell a gas leak in this firmware. Time to ground my phantom till the dust settles.

So, can someone from DJI let us know why this has become an issue?
I had to land to change from capturing photos to capturing video. The toggle switch is greyed out whilst the P3 is in the air.
