    This gimbal appears to be a 3 Axis Zenmuse Gimbal prototype shown at the CP+2014 show in Japan in February. Could a GoPro H3-3D 3 axis gimbal for Phantom be coming soon?

    Stabilised video in the Sony maybe ?? makes sense to me if I was going to chose a camera for a flying platform.

    The SONY does have non-optical image stabilization, missing on the GoPro 3. But the GoPro 3 does offer up to 4k video at 15fps and 2k and 3fps.
    I'm betting SONY is making an investment in DJI, and maybe as a not-so silent partner. It would be a VERY smart move for them.

    I am glad to see this.

    I have a Sony AS15 and prefer it to the GoPro.
    I feel it has a much sharper image and more vibrant colors.
    I use the Sony AS 15 on my Phantom I.
    I attach it to the GoPro mount with rubber bands. Cheese I know but it works:

    I am still trying to set up an FPV on this system.
    looking at an hdmi converter to AVI then I can place it in a standard FPV transmitter.
    If anyone has a suggestion please let me know.

    Doesn't seem to make a massive amount of sense given the shape of Phantom legs which will get in shot... :?:
