    I would think is something wrong with camera from v+. Everytime i record in sunlight i can see later video too bright. Almost blinds my eyes. Barely can see details of buildungs and no mentioned of white Cars. AWB doesn't matter if auto or manual mode.

    Any clues to make the video a little darker so maybe this white color will disapear? I mean of course prior using any software, just use settings in DJI Vision app.

    First, make sure your camera settings are default. If things are still too bright, lower the exposure until you find a setting to your liking. Read the camera section of the manual for specifics on available camera settings.

    If the camera is at the default settings and the lens cap is off, and the still image and video image are not normal, you have a defective camera. You should not have to make any changes from the default setup that came preloaded in your phantom. Call DJI tech support or return your phantom to your dealer for a replacement.

    It's not that simple, the app settings for the camera are there for a reason, changes may be required to suit conditions.
    Maybe the screen being used to play them is set too bright, they often are unless calibrated

    I think the lens filter kit is for the Vision and not the Vision+ but I would love to be wrong.

    I think, I manipulate too much to learn as much. However results are not good enough. Check my last video for instance.
    forward to 4:06 min. wheere starts video of hotel. It was really sunny day. Will try to set all defaults.

    Yes, well, as a member of the undead, at least I'll still be around when such a filter kit finally becomes available! :twisted:

    I watched your video and was expecting to see some terrible, washed-out footage. Honestly, it did not look very bad at all. Just a slight exposure reduction would help, and I'm sure your editing software provides some additional post-production adjustments. Nice video, BTW. Next focus more on the girls... :cool:

    Agree, try EV -1 or more. Is your computer screen adjusted correctly, calibrated?

    Over exposed a bit (can be pulled down in post) but the biggest problem is the horrible over sharpening (look at the aliasing that occurs at all of the straight lines).

    Some helpful advice about getting the most out of the mediocre Vision + camera:
