Request #1: I need auto record on battery, soon otherwise this gets returned

Request #2: more choices for battery standby, Off-1-2-3...minutes

Tip #1: move slow motion 720p 120fps under video size, it is a mode, not a setting

Tip #2: make ON/OFF order uniform across settings, not ON/OFF and the next OFF/ON. I suggest OFF first to match settings with number values

Tip #3: set your strings/variables right, DEMO1 looks bad (image)

Problem: now taking 16MP pictures instead of 12MP in previous firmware, developper error?

The smallest bug: after taking a picture, the Large/Middle angle symbol disappears

Without the bitrate-demanding grassy field background, I don't have to post-process my onboard footage to prevent Youtube from macro-blocking it to death with its low bitrate recompression.

No problem even with fast-moving scene like this. Sure if you pause the video and look for details on the gravel it's not the best, but the strength in 1080p60 video is details in the time domain. If you can play the video without a single frame drop, the smoothness of the video and the details in the object movement cannot be achieved with 4k24p mode which is like stop-motion animation and useless with such fast-moving scene.

I think this cam handles light/dark scenes pretty good with such challenging condition (quickly changing between bright sky and dark bridge/ground). No post-processing has been done in either video except turning down the volume.

Q6 led screen replacement


Recently my quad dropped into water together with my Q6, after cleanup with 75% alcohol and drying, the lcd was not working but the camera still able to record. So I ordered a lcd replacement from gearbest and replaced the led, see pic below, I think my soldering looks okay. But the new lcd still not working. May be it is something else that causing the problem. Eg a burned cap? Anyone know what I should be for in the PCB?

.FW v2.4 was never published before. But some Q6 was delivered with it.
Maybe that is the reason of the newer date.
Changelog is missing too.

Lens cover ??


Does the Q6 come with a protective film on it ?? I just got mine and it seems to have a slight blur to the video like there is a cover on the lens .

Mine didn't. If it did, it would've been very noticeable or else I would've remembered strongly of bitching about it.
