    Should I be using the tap exposure lock at the start of every flight similar to the tap focus? If I do lock it does it stay locked as a setting or reset to unlocked my next recording or flight?

    I ask because on my 1st flight I did the tap to focus. After doing so I realized the box was yellow and not green. That means I was locking the exposure. I recorded a short video and landed to figure out how to switch to auto focus. Figured it out and did the tap to focus. Up I went and recorded another video. Now 6 flights in I have never touched the tap exposure again.

    After uploading all my videos I have noticed that the first video is the best footage by far. That's the video I exposure locked by accident. I can't find any info on the tap exposure lock and would like to no more.

    Assign a 5D or C1/C2 button for exposure locking.

    Just tap the AE lock icon upper right on the video feed. That locks the exposure and turns blue when locked from memory.
