Can we control focus of the camera through Raveneye app?
With small steps.
Like we do with the front wheel of the gimbal.

I have the same question! I was not able to find any way to do this... Seems really odd that this feature is missing.  You can control so many aspects of the connected camera except for a crucial one like focus? I can understand thinking that the user can put the camera in full time autofocus for video, but they include a still mode in the app?  Most (if not all) cameras focus during the half press of the shutter button.  The camera control button on the gimbal supports the half press, why doesn't the app?

I think this could be added by firmware upgrade or at least app upgrade. Please DJI would you consider it ?

You must first click on this icon


And then, in this section


Here you can activate a dial on the screen to control the focus while watching the image on the screen.

I don’t think so, this part of the app is for controlling the focus motor which is triggered by the front wheel.

This just partially solves my problem. It just works with the external focus motor, not with the in-camera focus as you can also do with the front wheel.

I would need to have the camera far away and would like to use the dji focus motor for the zoom and the in-camera focus for controlling focus. And being able to map those controls to a game controller would probably be the most obvious thing to do in many situations.

This feature would be a great addition! Please make electronic focus via RavenEye happen, DJI!

Have you been able to find a work arround? There’s A system from middle things, that might work, but we where looking for a cheapear option, also thinking of using the focus motor as zoom, but then, we cant have the focus, we can probably have the one click to focus on the main app, but that would envolve not doing everything on one controller..
