    Not in HD but it goes over some features and has some good video of unit flying (at DJI China)
    According to the narrator, the shipping version will include the 5200 battery versus 4400 in the beta version. Should be 25 min total flight time. That's awesome!

    HD Comparison of Still and Video images from Vision vs Phantom with Hero Black
    I can't tell if the video and still are actually better or just more saturated and over-sharpened.
    I will be mainly using the Vision for raw stills so hopefully they will look good. This is what I do with them:

    The video actually looks pretty good compared to the gopro3. The gopro3 colors look flat compared to the vision.

    Is it really true about the 5200mah battery in the shipping version?? That's a surprise.

    I Just wonder, in the video the go pro 3 be is showing little yellow. I dont know if that will make the shoot worse?

    I really love the vision footage :) nice video

    I would take the Vision vs Hero3 comparison with a grain of salt.
    both these camera's have built in sharpening/contrast/gamma shifts that occur when the video is compressed, which can change with different shooting conditions. - and adjusted later in post.

    I thought the GoPro 3 looked a little washed out compared to the Vision. Nice demo.

    How did you mount the gopro? How did it handle the extra weight? Vision camera was better than I expected.

    These aren't my videos, I just deal with the excruciating wait for the actual Vision by scouring youtube every day for new videos. Ideally someone is going to do a side by side comparison of the RAW still pics. The iPhone app was just updated yesterday with better support for the raw files.
