    Hey guys,

    About to mount a Sony a5000 w/ 16mm lens underneath P2. Quality is far superior to GoPro so hoping I can get it airborne. Here's a cropped image a5000 (RAW) vs GoPro3 Black (Wide)

    Got a few mounts arriving via eBay... anyone else tried this successfully with an a5000? Any tips?

    Any success? I'm interesting in mounting the new Sony A5100 (283g) and the SOny 20mm lens (69g).

    I would guess the sony cams and the gimble for them z15 would be a bit heavy for the phantom ... I also have the nex7 and video/pics is much more superior the the gopro but is alot more heavy and to get a 5min flight with it won't be worth the money invested for sure.

    The NEX7 is a popular camera for the S800/900, but, as you say, too heavy for the P2.
