    Has anyone else hit 'the wall' with their camera yet ? I am noticing that while filming in river beds with dense foliage, the leaves blur together in UHD. I have to admit, I'm kinda disappointed, but am resigned to it being an entry level (albeit high end) drone for aerial photography. Is the 60Mbps max bitrate of storage what we are 'stuck' with or can an update improve it ?

    All digital cameras will have trouble with fine detail like grass and tree leaves and the smaller the sensor, the less it can handle this.
    But the P3 camera is a big step beyond the P2V+ that came before it.
    And the P4 will probably be another big leap forward when it arrives.
    I was constantly frustrated by the camera on the 2 and I'm aware of the limitations of the 3 but it's not a big problem for me and I'm generating much better work than I could before the 3 came along.
    If you are aware of the issue with busy fine detail, shoot less of that sort of subject.
