Here is a video from today with fixed aperture f8.0, shutter times between 1/100 (down to the ground) and 1/300-1/500 else.
@quadslo, regarding your last post I should have taken 4 or 5.6?

All scenes except the middle (you will notice) are 4x accelerated.

Props: Graupner 14x8 E-Prop

I run on 4S8000 (Zippy) gives about 10-12min flighttime,
AUW with Video Downlink but without langing legs: 4300gr

Please let me state, that this is not a recommended copter for the Z15, DJI recommends the S800

best regards

Try the 5.6 or 4 if there is less vigentting on the edges.
Nice to see that there is no gello effect on the shutter speed above 1/200

@rsun77

Yeah, on this copter the Z15 already looks small

I see you have the maxamps batteries. I also have them, but they do like long (very long) flight-times. So if you have the chance, you could have a look at the Zippy 4S8000, they have 770gr a pack and the like the discharge rate - I assume you will have - more than the maxamps, and you can really use 7500 of them.

Keen to see that beast in flight

best regards

Lol, they were only for display.

I am going for some 4s 8000 or so on it.
It will also be too heavy for my setup.

Thinking on trying out the DJI engines on the SJ6 and see what I kan get out of it.

Zenmuse Z15N on X7

Got our shipment of Zenmuse gimbals in yesterday. Haven't fixed our S800 yet so first order of business was to put a Zenmuse on our X7 demo copter. Should be interesting to see how it performs.

We're planning to use a Wookong-M separate for the Zenmuse only.

Saw your x7 front mount earlier this year; looking good. I will let you know when Ace One is ready for it.... I have two Ace Ones coming in from China ..... to my house. So, I have a personal interest in getting it done.

What s-tab you use for the X7?

lil of topic but since endofdays is rolling out one clip after the other.

photozone.de. has great lens reviews and describes the vignetting characteristics of the sony 16/2.8 pancake in detail.

their lens reviews are in english ( despite the .de domain )

and ACCURATE

haven┤t seen such precise unbiased lens reviews elsewhere.
stop by before you buy, their reviews match what i experienced on each and every lens i have .

btw . i do own a nex5n/16 myself , no bashing intended....

cheers

rio
