    I've watched a couple of tutorials but my version of the app is perhaps different (I'm using Andriod latest version).
    I don't see the switch ..... anyone else run into this?

    Do you mean manual flying or manual photo/video exposure?

    Oh ..... thanks! I feel better knowing I'm not completely inept.
    But there seems to be a lot of chatter suggesting it's there ..... crazy!

    So ISO is the only way to adjust for light on the P3 I guess ....

    No, there are other exposure settings, like EV. There's no manual flight mode, but there are a great number of manual camera settings.

    However, the best way to adjust for light is a(n) ND filter.

    Yes .... I asking about Manual Camera settings. I can't find the way to it.
    Where exactly is the switch (see attached screen shot).
    I can't even toggle to the EV settings to manually change them ....

    You should see the ISO, EV, and other values across the top, under the flight mode bar. For me, the right shoulder wheel of the transmitter changes the EV value.

    There are some additional manual camera settings by tapping the slider icon on the lower-right. Someone is bound to have a good video walkthrough of these features, but I don't have a good one handy.

    OK .... I played with it a while and got it. It is tricky, and there's nothing intuitive about it. The manuals a very poorly descriptive of this, and right now there are no video tutorials to explain it.
    But it does work ....
