    An example of the necessity of focusing the camera once airborne. From my dewy, morning flight just as the wind started to pick up.



    It appears to me, without knowing for sure, that as the Mavic camera initializes it center focuses. In this case on the wet blades of grass.

    Perfect illustration of what happens if one does not tap the screen to change to infinity focus!
    Short sweet and to the point.

    Is there anyway to focus to infinity before you take off?

    I would say there isn't. But, that's not a big deal. Just take off and hover a moment, then finger the focus on a distant object.

    Only option is tap as high as possible on the screen away from the ground.

    Hopefully with a firmware update we could pull focus by using the C1 and C2 keys. Just like the inspire with x5

    There's a manual focus option with a slider. General settings > manual focus.

    Ahhhh I see. Thanks for the info... I would have known that by now, if my Mavic actually arrived as promised.

    There's also an option to assign C1/C2 to refocus at center.

    True. I believe the C1 button is set that way by default.
