    My still images and video both have these white spots all over. I have always kept it in auto because I dont know anything about cameras. Its on a P3A. Thank you so much for any input. 006 (2).JPG 006 (2).JPG

    Definitely doesn't look right to me, shouldnt have while spots appearing on your photo's, if its new i'd take it back, if not might need to go to DJI sadly...

    I think this is called "dead pixels" or "hot spots" DJI has a DNG (raw image) cleaner to remove hot spots. But it does not apply to JPG's or video.
    You seem to have a defective cam.
    Nothing on or inside lens cover?

    dust shows up black, not white. Also there are a lot of red ones towards the bottom. has to be a faulty camera I think.

    Thats what I was afraid of. I have had a hard landing but no damage or crashes. Could that have done it? I just got it last Thursday. This is really disappointing.

    Take it back or get fixed under warranty.Don't bother mentioning the hard landing. It will just confuse the issue.
    If it doesn't look damaged. Then it's defective.

    Definitely take it back, it isn't fit for purpose
