Here's my pennies worth... I've been using a £40 Sony Bloggie for filming from a glider. It's a superb little camera, it's cheap, it's light and the angle of the camera can be adjusted easily. It does superb 5 Mega Pixel at 60 Frames Per Second (FPS) at 720P or 30FPS at 1080P. The only downside is the angle of the lens which is around 120 degrees view i think.Here is an example of one on ebay... http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Sony-bloggie-MHS-PM5-PM5K-Camcorder-WHITE-BOXED-/221172984527?pt=UK_AudioTVElectronics_Video_Camcorders&hash=item337eefeacf.
Hmmm - We could get really technical here about pixel density vs image quality but at the end of the day (and in my previous life in Film and TV) we always used to say "Content is King"
Definitely true, but i still wish I'd had a gopro on this day;(and a more stable aircraft as a camera platform...)
My initial batch of 'cheap' GoPro 3's (Silver) arrived today. I was initially a little suspicious as they don't have any serial number sticker inside them so I thought they may be copies but apparently not. I've thoroughly tested one of them and it worked perfectly - I even updated the software via GoPro's site - it connected OK and the camera was verified by GoPro. I configured the wireless App and that worked perfectly too - so far, so good Still haven't got the batteries though - they arrive on Monday - very happy with this little purchase - they'll be on eBay on Moday!
Any chance of uploading a sample video?
