Hi,

Not sure if anyone here can help or not.

With reference to the blue numbers on the side of the loco cab "PN001", when I shoot with with my P4P, these numbers badly flare out, they nearly give an effect similar to using a flash would with a DLSR. This does not ever happen when I shoot with my 5D mk 3.

The question is, why does the P4P camera do this, and would a filter of some kind potentially fix the issue?

Thank you

What's special about the numbers?  
Are they reflective and catching the sun?
Does this happen at any time of day/light conditions?

They are reflectorized, but the flaring from them only happens when I shoot with the P4P and not my DSLR (never seen it).

Happens in morning light prior to 8.30 and afternoon light after 3.00pm so far

This phenomenon is typical for particular lenses, Phantom included. It's noticeable at specific time of the day and when sunlight is directly behind camera sensor. Basically if you see drone shadow within frame boundaries you'll also notice this effect.  In this scenario the image is not too attractive anyway, lacking contrasting shadows.

Thanks for that explanation....any ideas if a filter of some sort would help?

Nope. It's there, period. The only way to avoid this is to compose your shoot at different angle.
