    Has anyone had this? This showed up half way through the flight. The early photos don't have the banding. The props did not strike anything.

    This photo shows the banding. NO processing has been applied this is just a jpg export from the original dng.

    Thank you. This makes sense.
    I was worried it was a camera problem!

    That's the kind of thing a lens hood could help eliminate, but I don't know if there's any specifically made for the vision camera yet, and they might create balance issues for the gimbal. However, a little creativity could get around that...maybe attach a small hood to the bottom of the body above the camera or something...anything that would block the line of light from blade tips to lens.

    Trying to shoot with the sun at your back whenever possible is always a good standard, for this and many other reasons...and if you can't get it behind you, at least 90deg to the side can help.

    Seems like the 46mm filter set up would be useful for making a sun shade out of paper or plastic.
    I have not found a filter adaptor in stock anywhere.

    I found this on BH and it could work.
    I don't know about field of view on this product below but some venting would not be bad as the lens profiles in Adobe LR 5 will chop off the edges anyway.

    But this will only work if I can find the filter adaptor for sale. I have heard of some people in Europe that have found it.
