    Hello Guys...

    Just as the title states... the video feed when I am in "Photo Mode" seem to not be HD while if I change to "Video Mode" (recording or not) it seems I get and HD feed... any reason for this?

    Thanks!
    JC

    If you put the photo mode in 16:9 same as video it will be the same - so it's related to changing resolution.

    Even in 16:9 it still is a little different, but not by much.

    It's way darker/muddier imager even in 16:9. Something about the camera switching modes. Bothers me too.
