    Hi folks, total newbie here (first post). I'm considering the P2 and would like to use something besides a Gopro (or Vision) for (only) still photography. I have been looking at cameras with intervelometers in the 170-280 gram range. So my question is..without using a Zenmuse what would be a realistic (and "comfortable") max camera weight for the P2? Searching for this info has been challenging so any input would be much appreciated.
    Cheers,
    Jim

    Not much larger will work due to weight/camera quality. I have tried to fly my Sony RX100 on a Phantom V1 and V2 - it is better on a V2 but not by much. If your serious about still photography I would steer you AWAY from Phantoms and go for a larger Octocopter. They can handle the weight and have much less vibration with the weight. I WISH my Phantom could fly my T4 but that isn't going to happen. If you have to stay with the phantom, the Vision does a decent job on still photographs.
