Excellent! Thanks Pete. I watched them full screen and I don't see any jello. I think the camera is definitely worth considering.

More work on my RX100 Quadcopter mount. I'm having roll servo jitter issues but I'm getting there.
I now understand why many video without roll stabilization! I removed the power to the roll servo for this test.
I ran out of light last night... so off I went to the shopping centre for a fly (and to add a few UFO sightings).

Interesting, that seems a really good low-light performance.

Really nice. The workmen seemed very blasť about the aircraft - multi rotor relatively nearby or didn't they see it?

I approached them and asked if they minded me doing a quick test video. I explained where i wanted to fly first. "No worries" they said... then one asked "hey... is that one of those machines that can go upside-down?". "Just on a bad day" I replied

btw - Dmala commented the that the low light performance was good. When i go HDMI straight from the camera into the 42" plasma tv... it is stunning. Very black sky, no high-iso noise

This is with the Active stabilization in the camera turned on.

that seems very good as far as stability goes. What copter setup are you using there ?
it is quite brutal on light changes, can you use manual settings in video ?

Here is another test.
I had the "Steadyshot" on full. The in-camera stablization processing adds some jello. The un-steadied video is crisp but shows up every bump.

I also had the camera on full auto for the video settings. It has full manual settings available.

This is from my diy HFP Quad.

Thanks. Once your vid was over Youtube showed a link to a RX100 review done by davomrmac . This person's camera after about 5-10' of taking a video would get a message that it was overheating and would shut down, have you observed the same problem? I would guess it is a single defective unit but it may be helpful to check......

I had one unannounced shut-down while making the above video after 5 minutes. No idea what the message was... it was flying!
I have made 8 minute videos without a problem. I'm not likely to video/fly longer than 8 minutes anyway but I'll do some testing.
I'm not using Steadyshot anymore. That might help keep the temperature down.

I did a 15 minute video without an issue - but it was inside facing the window. I'll try an outdoor test later...

I think Stacky and I will be grounded for the next 2 weeks with a 20-40mph "Spring" westerly winds. That's the problem when New Zealand is a big long N-S ridge in the ocean

I'm off to Palmy tomorrow for the weekend. I don't think I will bother taking a machine with me...

I notice the focusing speed of RX 100 is sometimes a bit slow in video mode.

Can you put it on manual focus and set the focus to infinity?
