I finally got my replacement camera in the air when a day of really nice weather arrived. This camera has a different CMOS sensor array than my original camera. While it still has similar high color saturation and contrast that I needed to correct during editing, and a touch of sharpness added, the corner-to-corner focus of this camera is very good for AV after I adjusted the focus. While I don't have the old camera to compare, it sure seems this one has better white balance and less color "hunting" during slight changes in light level. here's the link:

The original plays a little smoother in addition to having better resolution.
