Anyone experiencing the same issue as mine, after upgrading firmware today, AF had gone completely messed up in both video/photo mode.

I tried both day/night time shooting and all footage was blurred as hell...

**My videos/photos taken yesterday before the firmware upgrade were completely crystal clear

Example: (Resized smaller to upload here, completely out of focus)

I just tested and the continuous auto focus is working fine and refocusing as I fly around.

Are you not hearing the refocusing beep and the camera refocuses?It's also working correctly when I manually refocus.

Ken thanks for looking into it. Let me give you more details.

Saturday I was out for hiking and flew the drone, Go 4 App told me there's an update available but I had no wifi in the field so I ignored it and flew my drone. All pictures and videos were crystal clear.

Sunday morning, I update the firmware before I left home, update successful and flew the mavic nearby. Noticeably thru the iphone picture was a bit blur, tried focusing near and far objects, no improvement at all. Took several shots and videos and head back, checked it in the mac all footages appeared as blur as you could see earlier.

So the only thing happened in between was the firmware upgrade, no crash, no drop, nothing else. Ken, can you please check with the developer if they had touched any codes on the AF in the newest firmware? Tks vm.

To address on the possibility of condensation in/out of the lens, here's the temp and rel. humidity
I flew it at around 12:30 and 23:30, not a dry day but definitely not a wet day either, bright sunshine at midday

Saturday had even higher relative humidity when the AF worked fine, it was a bit misty on the mountain top when photos/videos were very sharp.

Not likely a condensation problem for me I guess.

I had this focus issue because of condensation.
After drying the camara it's fine.

You saw your issue that's why I bring up the weather condition when I flew, but I don't think it's likely the reason though...

Have you tried to reset the camera settings to default. A while back someone had a similar issue with focusing and this helped as it gives the camera a little kick when it resets.

I don't think there is a setting for auto-focus.  It just does it with current firmware and dji go 4.

Mine doesn't auto focus. I'm on latest Fw and Dji go 4 on Android. I have only tap to focus or fully manual choices.

Ok here's what I will test today:
Upgrade firmware for all 3 batteries I have for sake of consistency (Think I have only upgraded firmware under 1 battery)
Reset camera setting
Fly again today (Weather is even nicer today, less haze, less humidity)

Result: AF is back to normal, seems "Reset Camera Settings" did the trick
So the unsolved mystery is what happened after the firmware upgrade....

It will prompt you on the fist page of the app if the battery needs the update. No prompt means the battery is up to date. Hit the DJI icon in the top right of the camera view page to go back to the main page. You can always connect it up via Assistant 2 and force a f/w update if you are not convinced that they do not need one :-)

^ Thanks! So i I flew today with the new update i think I'm having this problem too and I tried resetting the camera setting when I tested it in the house after updating focusing was fine I tested it at different depth of fields to make sure and it focused just fine but when I went out the fly and review the footage (and I know for a fact I tap to focus a few times because I do not see it automatically focusing) I noticed that in the footage it was not as focused as it used to be could it be that temperature plays a role? I believe it was about 40 degrees Fahrenheit

I think i also have a focus issue since update. Will try camera reset when possible. Conditions were not optimal though: 5 deg celcius at ground level, flew @ 500' , bit hazy.  Whatever it is, sure if reset does not fix it the next firmware will
So happy with this little critter so far!

Id like to add: the dji do4 never "told" me to update go. Check for updates said  no updates available. When i went to google play the update button appeared. Got the current version now but too cold to fly.
