(Android and iOS) Camera settings in Pix4Dcapture

The app only saves the images in the .jpeg format which is supported by the computer software. As for other camera settings, they are specific to the type of drone. The resolution is set to the largest available ratio.

DJI drones

The camera settings are set to automatic so that the images are optimally captured to ensure a good reconstruction with Pix4D Desktop.

Main:

  • White balance: Auto.This parameter adjusts for each image.
 
Tip: More flexibility is possible:
    • (Android) Changing the while balance in DJI GO (4) will apply during the flight with the app.
    • (iOS) Selecting the white balance as automatic, sunny or cloudy directly in the settings of the app.
  • ISO (auto, 100, 200, etc.): Auto.
  • Sharpness: Standard.
  • Contrast: Standard.
  • Exposure compensation: Default.
  • Resolution: Maximum.

Others:

  • Anti flickr (video): Auto.
  • Exposure metering (average/center/point): Center.
 
Important: Changing the camera settings in DJI VISION, DJI GO, or DJI GO 4 should be effective in the Android app (only, not iOS for now) but it is not guaranteed as it was not extensively tested. It also depends on the drone, camera and type of mission. The aperture and exposure time are automatically set by DJI but can be adjusted and should be taken into account. These settings impact the sharpness of the image.
