First day out and noticed this in one of the clips. It doesn't show up anywhere else, sun was actually pretty low in the sky and quite a bit to the left of the camera (note shadow in first few frames) possibly a reflection and not shadow? Note, not the obvious prop peaking out in the upper left but the lines in the lower two thirds of the frame.

Auto shutter with low sun shining THROUGH the blades in SPORT mode...  Seems normal to me.

Yeah it looks like props and speed is to fast with camera almost pointing straight ahead, maybe fly slightly higher, and turn camera slightly down..

What's in the upper right corner?  It looks like some sort of line, a crack?  Or is that the gimbal cover on?  I kept watching, and it seemed to move, must of been a jet trail...

Your first video, I had this exact issue today... And the drone was not in sport mode and was not on even moving. Those black lines flickering from the bottom. But after I changed the camera angle they went away, I only noticed these once I got back and watched the footage on my laptop. Not sure why it did it. Although I remember someone before mentioning about shutter settings?

Is there an optimal setting for this to avoid this kind of thing happening. It was perfectly bright and sunny it was like 4pm for me. 3 hours away from sunset.
