I have been following a number of threads on rcgroups, and in other places about the attributes that the perfect compact camera for aerial photography might have. While there hasn't exactly been a consensus, or enough interest to spur any of the big camera manufacturers into making something that caters for us, the following is what I see as a good summary of what people wanted: APS-C or similar sized sensor Under 250g ready to shoot Interchangeable lenses Powered by main flight battery Continuous shooting Manual camera control Remote shutter via RC channel AV out Instead of sitting on my hands, or settling for a camera that achieved some of these goals, I have been a little more pro-active. I have found / hacked / modified / wired together a prototype camera that meets all of the above goals, except for AV out. The camera I started with is part of a series, or line of cameras that HAD that feature, but because I bought mine as a new model before there was a definitive answer online on the topic, I simply assumed that it would have it. As it stands, there are quite a number of second hand, older camera bodies available, and I am thinking of buying one, to complete the above list. I already have everything that I need in the prototype that I've produced, as I do photogrammetry, and FPV isn't really relevant for that. However, I believe that a large number of people must have a need for a similarly light, large sensored camera, so; *** If I were to attempt to manufacture these in small batches, how much would you personally pay for something like this?
