    Does anyone know where to find the documentation for the camera settings with the latest app version?

    Isnt it in the latest release of the manual on the website? I know they upgraded the manual since the update on the app.

    Seems as though you can only select different POV options now in 1920 X 1080 res. now. It wasn't like this before the add update, was it?

    I'm only able to select 1080i and 1080p as the highest resolution and as the only allowed changing the FOV (field of view) to wide or medium. Which software version allows 1920p?
    Also, what is the difference between 1080i and 1080p?
    Thanks

    No such thing as 1920p.
    1920x1080 is 1080p
    i=interlaced, p=progressive, only applies to video, not stills.
    As I understand it, the only thing that changed is there are only two FOV options now and there used to be three.

    Does changing the FOV on the P2V+ simply crop the image?

    Good question, wish I knew.

    On the DJI website for their new manual and under the camera resolution functions it says this:

    Three Field of View (FOV) options are supported when shooting in 1920x1080 60i, 1920x1080 30p and
    1920x1080 25p: Medium (110°) and Narrow (85°).


    Is this just a typo or poorly translated Chinese to English?

    I have hardly played around with the camera settings very much at all since I bought my PV2+ over a month ago. I've basically changed the resolution to 1080 p from 720 and that was it. However, I could have sworn before you could select 3 different FOV's on the previous app, regardless of the resolution setting.
