    Are you looking in the album within the vision app, or the normal album on your iPhone? When used an iPhone 4, if I recall correctly, my downloads went to both albums. Perhaps an update since I last used an iPhone has made them go to only one of those albums?

    I'm guessing you shot your video in 1080i60? Interlaced video - any speed - is not supported by Apple iOS devices. This is not just a Phantom thing. Even iTunes can't transfer interlaced video files to the phone. Even if you could transfer an interlaced video file, it wouldn't play. Unlike flat-screen TVs, iPhones and iPads can't play interlaced video - they have no de-interlacing engine.

    You'll have to download any 1080i60 files to a computer using a card-reader, and then convert them to 1080p30 before they can play on an iPhone. I think 1080p30 is generally the best HD format to choose on your P2V camera.

    Virtually every device, computer, or TV has a progressive-only display today anyway. In my opinion, there's no reason to ever shoot 1080i60 (interlaced video) with your Phantom - UNLESS you specifically plan to do slow-motion special effects later in your video-editing software by slowing it down. Or you plan to show your video on a circa-1999 tube-style HDTV set :)
