The Camera view is accessible by tapping on the camera preview located on the bottom left of the screen. When in camera view, the preview will show the map view.
The Camera and Gimbal controls are used to capture images or video, change where the camera is pointing and control the zoom. They also display available memory and provide access to other settings.
Camera Gimbal and Zoom Controls (Optional Virtual Joystick not shown)
The Camera Gimbal control consists of a camera and a gimbal sub-controls, which are shown separately below.
The camera control is used to capture video or still images, change between camera modes, and configure the camera settings.
The photo and video mode versions of the camera control are shown above. Switch between the modes by selecting the camera/video icon, and press the round button to capture images/video.
The sub-controls for each mode are listed below.
The gimbal angle indicator in the upper right corner of the video stream displays the current camera pitch (up/down).
The compass in the lower left corner shows the direction the gimbal is facing, as well as the position in relation to the vehicle and how wide the current field of view is.
Gimbal Joystick Control
The on-screen gimbal Joystick can be enabled to control both the pitch and yaw (if supported by the gimbal hardware).
Zoom out/in by pressing the -/+ buttons. Depending on the Camera the Zoom level may be shown as field of view or zoom level.
The multi-camera selector allows you to choose between multiple cameras. The displayed arrow indicates more than one MAVLink-enabled camera is detected. Selecting the camera name opens the Camera selector.
In the Camera selector all connected cameras are displayed and can be selected.
Camera and gimbal settings are accessed from the camera-control settings icon.
The options presented in "Camera" depend on the camera and camera mode (video/photo and EO/IR). For example: ISO, white balance, brightness, sharpness, video frame rate, exposure mode, etc. The available storage on the camera, if available, is also shown here.
The settings that are independent of the camera type are shown in "Settings" (additional settings may be displayed if supported by a particular camera).
