    I actually have one coming for the out of focus and purple triangles in corners
    just thought maybe this is a setting not the camera hope this is solved as well when I change it out

    it does do it up high as well a lot. This clip may not have shown as much up high but it does and very troublesome

    I had one video do it for a few seconds and then it settled down. I don't know what caused it.

    I've been searching the web like crazy the last few weeks getting all sorts of useful info, but unforntunately I didn't always bookmark the site I was on. Well, someone posted a video that adressed that very problem (which I have experienced filming with my Vision). It was very frustrating and it ruined some good shots.

    Well, that video had a guy flying his Phantom and showing the lines across the screen and he showed and discussed how to alleviate them.

    1st of all, he said the lines were caused from the sun and the shadows from the propeller blades casting into the camera lens. He put a sun shade and a filter on the lens and corrected the problem.

    I have since got a P2G and I ordered a filter for my Gopro. So, that should solve the problem!

    This is an example of the lines...... This was taken by my Vision.

    I hope that with my P2G will not have that problem when I get my filter!

    Right, but the video that addressed the problem (wish I had bookmarked it) had discussed other similar issues with lighting that were corrected with a lense filter.
