Hopefully you can help me. We will follow a Tesla over a bridge, driving sideways at about 30 km/h, but I get some kind of lag in the picture. Ive been using a sandisk extreme plus V30 64Gb . Cache set to 2 Gb Shooting 4K the bridge 25fps exp 1/50th the other is tried at 60fps 1/30th. Any suggestions on how to avoid a lag? With lag I mean that it is like you take away some frames in the movement. All help is really appreciated as we have the shoot coming up soon. Cannot attach film file

Have you tried lowering the res and see if it still lags?

The most common cause of lag is a phone/tablet that isn't up to running DJI Go4 properly.

So, the lag is coming from the file on the SD card? As @Meta4 said, if it's only on your display, then it could be a device issue.

Is the actual video on SD lagging, or the real time video feed?

Edit: Thunderdrones did the same question at the same time. Sorry.

If I may ask, what device are you using for the live feed?
Is " 60fps 1/30th " an typing error or did you mean 30fps 1/60th?
Try to disable the video cache on the device to see if there is improvement.

The lag is on the final result, not on the iphone.
Ok, then it is a problem with the video settings you are using. Can you try lowering your resolution?
