    Here is a quick nighttime video I took with P3A
    Battery was low when I took off so I didnt have much time to play

    Nice,
    Good thing you had that "Wood Powered Homing Beacon" going in your backyard.
    Dogs love Phantoms, till they catch one and get bit. :eek:

    Thanks for sharing squeaky.

    No red glow from the LEDs there like the fisheye on the P2V+ had.
    Did you cover the LEDs or does the lens just work that way so it's not a worry?

    You can turn the front LEDs off in the app.

    I did nothing to the LEDS they were on (you can kind of see them on take off reflecting on the table)

    has anyone written an app to turn the lights off completely yet? They can be a real nuisance for twilight videos

    Wow, that is some outstanding low light performance. GoPros are completely useless in situations like that. Those Sony Exmor cameras are pretty good. Thanks for posting.

    No .. and looking at this video it looks like it's not a problem with the P3

    You can turn off the red front lights in the app. Rear status lights remain on for obvious reasons.
