Hello all,
I have been flying missions (maybe 30 or so) with Mavic Pro with good success but have recently upgraded to a P4P. With Mavic I typically flew at 175 agl, 65% sidelap, 75% frontlap and max speed of 15mph (I had earlier problems with faster speeds). I also used manual focus and exposure keeping ISO at 100 with max shutter speed for the conditions. I also used +3,+3,0 camera setting for best sharpness/contrast in the photos. I was wondering, in general, if I should make any adjustments to these settings for the P4P? One big change I hope to be able to make is faster drone speed, letting the DD use maximum speed of 34mph. Also, I assume it is best to use f-stop (not available on Mavic) to maximize shutter speed up to about 1/1000 beyond which I am thinking higher f-stop would help focus (assumption being that 1/1000 SS is fast enough. Any change to overlap to allow for the P4P’s wider field of view? Any input would be most welcome.
Thanks

Phantom 4 pro is a good option as compared to the Mavic pro. I am waiting for a review of both the devices. I go to Netgear technical support for details of the devices which I purchase from netgear.

DroneDeploy will calculate and set appropriate speeds for the height of your mapping mission.
DD will also work out overlaps for you.
Forget about the depth of field effects and aperture as the lens has so much DoF at any aperture that this does not matter.
Try using auto camera settings in DD, it works very well.
