    Hi,

    I've been recording videos with my Phantom 2 Vision and noticed that on afternoon when giving the back to the sun, the Phantom shadow is being covered by a light color.

    Is it a feature? Can I remove it some way?

    Check this frame from the video:

    Whoa, I never heard of this effect before!

    Thank you for the clarification, zenoshrdiu!

    The rather scratchy, moderate resolution makes it look a bit like a defect, but you will probably start spotting it frequently now - it is a 'real' optical effect that every camera in that situation will show.

    Yes. So I think the better way is to keep it in mind at the moment of shoot a video, avoiding if possible this spot on the floor.

    Interesting. Now I will have to start looking for it.
