It's a Canon SD (Ixus) pocket cam. I forget which one off hand, but it is an older one with a CCD sensor, so the blades being filmed dont look bent like with a cmos sensor

Same here on the blades. Initially I checked them as 'close enough' and threw them on. Then I actually checked them well. .43gram variance heavy to light, and beyond the resolution range of my through-bolt balancer. So right on the money. I'm almost afraid to paint them they are so matched, lol. I'll be using Tamiya paint on mine also, but the brushed on acrylic, lighter and more consistent application weight-wise.

I've found Ghost Grey to be a good match for the Eurocopter blades, I believe the 'light' version of that color IIRC.

LOL. Mine are painted with dark Ghost Grey and they are a bit dark. The head is painted with light Ghost Greay and it appears to be correct. I am thinking that I may change the grey on the blades to a different shade with less blue in it but still darker than the light Ghost Grey. Take care.
