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
