Best way to mount my Sony NEX5N to my Quad copter.

Best way to mount my Sony NEX5N to my Quad copter.
I have been taking aerial pics for realtors in my area with my GOPRO2 and they are complaining of the warps and curved lines. I have tryed using all kinds of software to fix. Not working and I am not spending half aday to fix pics. I have a Sony NEX5n and I cant seem to mount it without having fuzzy out of focus pics.
I have yet to have one GOPro Pic come out of focus after taking over 3000 pics.
Anyone have any Ideas for me.

Leave the autofocus alone, it works just fine...

Use shutter priority, set shutter speed at 1/800 ISO at 200 and go shoot. If you still see blur, there is a real vibration issue somewhere. I have been shooting with this setting for a yr now and practically 100 percent are sharp. If I pan very fast I get one here and there.

Also, choose the standard continuous mode, not the hyperspace mode. The standard is fast enough, you will fill your card in seconds with the fastest mode.
