    Does anyone have photos from both P3S and P3A? I wonder if difference in image quality is noticeable.

    I am a happy owner of P3S and need to get another bird. I don't care about 4K and the range is just fine for me. I am just debating if I should get a P3A for better image quality.

    I have both but rarely take photos. More of a video guy. Video quality of both is nice. I usually record in 1080X60 on P3A & 1080X30 on P3S since it doesn't offer 60fps option. I would think the A might be slightly better since it has the EXMOR sensor but Panasonic is no slouch when it comes to ele tropics. Check my YouTube (schtuperman) channel for samples.

    @Dirty Bird @DroneDestination Thanks for the info. I checked out the videos on youtube. There is no difference. The P3S footage (Carnival Pride) even looks better. I guess I will get another P3S.

    5X range with the P3A though if you can handle the price difference.
