    We've hand held our P3P for ground shots many times. We've done this for still and video several times. It's worked out very well you just have to be smooth, steady, and slower than you might think.

    Come on man really? Does that really add to the thread any?

    Makes sense, keeps the video format and settings consistent for editing, and you bring less gear to the shoot. By the way, the title makes perfect sense to me, and that is a very well done video.

    I usually use a handle held camera for ground shots and then mix Phantom and ground shots together. I've never had an issue with this. Of course I shoot the both at the same resolution (in my case, 1080) and both at 60fps. The quality of the Phantom camera is great but it looks best at the long range drones usually show.

    I just picked up a Canon G7X Mark II. I like to add in some time lapse and other shots (sound like someone else? :) ). I also use a Sony Action cam for things like video from a vehicle. But even a cell phone would work just fine.
