I Need a Camera

What would be the best camera to put on a slow stock for AP? I have a flycam but that does not have the best shots and Videos. I am looking for something to put on the plane and Take good pictures and not to heavy. How will I power it? With bats in the camera or hook up 5 volts or what ever from the lipo I have in my SS.
Well please tell me what I should use. Thanks.
