    It is currently working for me. Do you have more information on the issue?

    Here are my camera settings.  After completing the mission, I was looking at the image metadata and noticed as the XP Keyword it just "Single".  On HDR images this usually says "HDR".  When looking online at some different sample images from the MA2, the Smart photos are tagged with "SDR".    I pulled most of my camera settings from my Mavic 2 zoom repository, so i set everything to not required as I was testing except for the Smart Setting.  I've had limited time to test with the MA2, but will have another one to test with shortly.  Any help on what I did wrong initially would be great.  TIA!

    Here is the test plan I used.

    1. Open DJI Fly and confirm the camera is set to single
    2. Force close DJI Fly
    3. Open Dronelink and run this mission
    4. Force close Dronelink
    5. Open DJI Fly and confirm camera has been changed to smart photo
    6. Open the photo viewer in DJI Fly and confirm there is an image in the camera roll marked with the smart icon in the bottom left

    Thanks Jim.  I'll test this and let you know how it goes.

    My Mavic Air 2 has taken quite a few "Smart" and "Single" photos via Dronelink in the past couple days. 

    All of the "Smart" photos are recognized as such by DJI Fly (i.e., when using DJI Fly to view photos on the drone's SD card, the thumbnails are properly marked with the Smart logo).  Likewise, all of the "Single" are recognized as such, and display the Single logo. 

    The "tags" value in file properties of the Smart photos varies...   Some of the Smart photos say "sdr", some say "single", and one actually says "hdr".   This was also true when I was using the DJI Fly app.

    I have two conclusions from that:

    1. Dronelink commands are working correctly to set mode (single/smart) as requested.  This is proven by DJI Fly being able to correctly identify the photos as Single or Smart.
    2. The exif tagging done by the DJI SDK doesn't specifically correspond to the "mode" (single/smart) selected.  My GUESS here (only a guess) is that when "Smart" mode is used, the photo is internally identified as such (hence DJI Fly's ability to identify them as "smart"), but DJI varies the algorithm used (SDR, HDR, or Single) based on lighting/contrast conditions.  The exif tag doesn't correspond to the "mode" selected, but rather the actual process DJI decided upon for that particular "smart" photo.

    I was finally able to test with Mavic Air 2 again.  I was successful in getting it to take "Smart" photos.  Thank you for the help!
