    is there a way to correct fisheye effect when camera on quad is pointing down while actually filming and flying, it disappears as you raise camera to level.

    Lens correction is available specifically for both GoPro and the DJI camera in both Photoshop and Lightroom.

    I don't think the FC200 has anything in camera settings to correct this isle only what MacCool there suggested .

    Hay guys,
    You should also check out Prodrenalin video-editing sw on ProDad.com. Includes fisheye correction specifically for the phantom. It's cheap and works well.

    The fisheye distortion is there all the time and never disappears.
    Any straight line that does not pass through the centre of the image is bent outwards by the lens.
    If your horizon or any vertical line passes through the centre, it appears straight but other lines are warped.

    A sw fix with the ProDrenaline video-editing sw ( to be find on prodad.com) is much cheaper, does not add weight to you bird and gives no inbalance of the camera-gimbal.

    Try switching to narrow.

    The 5.4mm lens weight is negligible, although filters would add weight.

    I know it's expensive! I personally think you'd be mad to spend that on a fix but it's still a legitimate and probably the best fix so it deserves a mention.

    In camera app click the cog in the right bottom corner then a slide out comes out on left side and where it shows 1080 tap that and you will see this and set the right roller to where mine is and hit the check mark and you have it set to narrow ;)

    Be aware that switching to narrow only trims the edges of the image and reduces your resolution.
    It does not remove fisheye distortion or change the focal length of the lens.

    And for the OP, you can find the answers to many questions in the manual.
    It's full of useful information about the Phantom.
