Your piece is beautiful but there are issues with the imagery, very soft compared to other cameras. The GH series have the best dlsr aerial footage I have seen so far. Yeah, you might not have the manual options in the gp3 like you do in dslrs and digital cinema cameras. but the sharpness will out perform the nex5n by far. I think this wll be my last post about this. My nex post about the gp3 is when I get it up in the air.
Gopro hero 2 adds lots of in camera sharpening, this also accentuates noise when shooting in low light with the hero2. i'm sure gp3 adds in camera sharpening as well. NEX does not add as much in camera sharpening, this is not a bad thing. Add shapening in your edit.

@Sid, excited to see some raw gp3 footage. Which lens will you use? We all know the 16mm is shite! After all the noise about this topic let's hope your test and observations are not tainted in any way kidding

Hi Roberto,

I know that video pretty well but that guy is balancing a NEX7 were the base plate is almost at the bottom out of factory. For the NEX5N there is the need to lower it so it is not touched or described in that vid

Thanks I just seen a post in R100 vs GoPro thread and someone mentioned they bought it there.

I checked BestBuys in my area and they dont have them yet.

I will keep looking.

Tony, I checked too. I don't think they have them for online order and in store pickup yet. I am going to go down to the local BB and check it out tomorrow.

Thanks I was thinking the same thing.

I never called or went down.

I just looked online and it says pre-order.

When I seen pre-order on GP's site I assumed no stores would get them untill then.

Now I am on the hunt.

Hi Sid. Have you checked out the wifi yet. I was wondering if it has the lag that the gp2 has.

Cheers

I just checked with BB and my local store only got 3 and they were gone on Sunday. There are none to be had in the entire Las Vegas metroplex. Oh, well, it saves me some money.

Would that work or am I missing something here.
I guess I could try that and see for myself.

Note: I did finally get the Orange RX for the gimbal working as a one man setup with the 8fgs and the sbus rx on the S800.
hi

I am going to receive my z15, as i understand we can use the r6208sb (s800) and orange rx for z15, all on the only one Tx (8fgs) ?
