    I hear some people mention that 720 60p looks better than 1080 30p. What does everybody else use. I am using the Phantom 2 Vision Plus with stock camera.

    Thanks

    Edited to include camera type.

    All depends on camera. Are you asking about a Dji, GoPro or what?

    I don't kow if it is a good idea to follow a "camera how to" from a guy who does not know what is "exposure compensation". He calls it "another white balance"...

    I used these settings and do _not_ agree with ISO being set at 100. My video not looks terrible. I need to remember to switch back to auto.

    In-app setting are same for Vision/Vision+, so in my opinion and experience, yes. Anyway, I did not found a better video about camera settings. The only thing I'm experimenting with is not to set WB to auto, but to choose sun on sunny days and cloud when sky is completely covered with clouds. The reason is, when WB is set to auto and Phantom flays from sunny area into the shadow area, color sometimes changes drastically and I don't like this. By my opinion is better to have constant and most suitable for current situation WB and then make final colors correction in post-production.

    Ahh I see. It looks like the gimbal is the only difference between the two.
