    You know - I've shared many times my dissatisfaction of the vision plus camera ... but getting the right shot is not always about pristine, tack sharp pictures. I got up at 4am and went through 4 batteries to come up with the following shot. My Altitude was only about 15-20m - cant remember exactly ... I've burnt out a lot of compacts messing with the sun ... I saw the opportunity and figured a quick exposure would suffice without much harm. Glad I gave it a shot before turning my lens and changing my flight path to play with the tree tops.

    That is a great shot! Worthy of a postcard.

    Thanks man - I'm still working on what can be done in post processing to make it even better!

    I'll get the very best out of this tiny camera yet!

    Stay Tuned :)

    No - It would never be that good coming from the vision plus camera footage. I do pull em from video - (a lot) but that's simply too good for that to be the case.

    Here is another rendition by a forum member at the Australian Photography forum:

    I simply could not match the post processing on that level - Full credit to Closei.
