"Finally got a chance to do some testing, and now I see that the DJI Go app only supports a minimum of one shot every 5 seconds in JPG mode! I was sure that I had seen an option for one every 2 seconds. So, that won't work either. I've…"

"Yes, the time lapse and focusing from DJI GO and then switching to UgCS to fly should work. It would be really interesting if that solved your issue, we will had to add Time Lapse to our app :) Good luck! Artūrs"

"Hi Artūrs, Wow - that is really surprising! Thanks for the link to their specifications. I wonder why they have such a long time between images. For photogrammetry, I'm shooting in JPG, not RAW, so I would think it would be capable of faster…"

Launch with DJI Go, focus, then fly with UGCS

I'm using a DJI Inspire 1 Pro and both the 15 mm and 25 mm lenses. Since DJI haven't made the ability to control focus available via their SDK, (apparently the beta version out now does!), I've been looking for ways to ensure I'm getting proper focus during photogrammetry missions. First, some background on what I've found with these lenses:The 15 mm lens, even when set to Manual on the lens itself, resets to some not quite at infinity setting each time you power on.
