Just tested the QuickShot in Android 4.1.10. Seems ok but there was a notification about camera optimization or something like that and the camera changed to auto mode. Is this normal even in iOS? I'd prefer to do QuickShots in manual mode ISO 100, shutter 1/50.

As much as I can determine, the app will control the camera settings and gimbal movement while in the Quickshot modes.

Is it confirmed that the camera settings are locked in "Auto Mode" on IOS and Android?

Ok looks like I'll be using less of this unless playing around.

Looks like it, with all the countdown and such, I think there's no allowance to do any manual adjustments. Also the video is automatically recorded.

That's pretty lame. They should give us the option to go have camera be set in auto or set it manually.

A question about auto camera settings:   I like shooting MANUAL with 30 FPS/60 Shutter/100 ISO + ND 16 Filter. If the lighting conditions are right, is there any chance that auto mode will be close to my preferred manual settings? or is Auto camera always going to push the Shutter speed and increase the ISO or some other funky auto setting?

I like the idea of the quickshot a lot but would rather have manual control of camera.

Also it only takes video when moving away from object.  It should take video moving forward also.

Is there anyway to override the settings?

Yes I agree with the auto/manual option. Simply in the camera settings, QuickShot Mode: [auto/current]. Edited (removed manual from the list): [Auto] will let it do its thing, [Current], if it's currently on manual, leave it alone else proceed with auto.

Unfortunately depending on the light conditions, the ISO/Shutter auto settings will be totally different from what you've set manually once it goes auto.
