    Hi guys, i've watched a couple of videos now and my Mavic's camera seems to have some problems. It looks really mushy and un-sharp even when i tap to focus. Haven't check, maybe i have some grease on the lens or something.

    Here is a test i did, it was shot at iso 100 in 4k and downscaled to 1080p

    If you look closely, the rocks are in focus but the 2 sides of the screen are really mushy and no details at all :S

    Could it be something to do with where you tapped? I remember seeing somewhere that if you tap an object more than 25m (i think) it will do infinity focus instead of focus. Under that distance away from the magic it will focus on the object. I may be wrong.

    It doesn't look like focus problems.
    In my opinion it has everything to do with a very bad videoprocessing, the low bitrate and used codec.

    In my case it is also in still photo's, so that rules out processing, codec and bitrate ...

    In that case I need to see the stills. Do you shoot in DNG?

    Camera/lenssoftness looks completely different. In your video I see very bad processing errors. It is not soft, it is unusable

    Your picture is an other story then the video. The softness on the right of the image looks like lens-softness/error. I have this also a little bit with my P3P.

    It looks like the same thing "Nomadic In The Philippines" on YouTube was having with his drone. He's got a video on explaining why he's returning his drone. "WHY IM RETURNING THE DJI MAVIC PRO DRONE!?!? LENS FOCUSING PROBLEM ON RIGHT SIDE"

    Can't see anything wrong in that video. I think peoples expectations are higher than the little sensor could possibly deliver.

    I believe the mushyness is a codec or settings issue on the software. I too have noticed the same. Not really had time to play around and did a very brief flight, but I used CineD and style soft and the footage was very mushy.... examples below... 100% crop of a DNG Raw and Footage... when i did it indoors out of my office window, I just used standard settings and it looked exactly the same as a Phantom just with a tighter field of view. Hopefully I can get out again tomorrow and try different settings whilst in flight.

    These are 100% crops
