    A small clip from a trip to the islands on Sunday. Have installed my Nex 5N with 16mm in a hexa .. I have challenges to set the camera properly. Any suggestions?

    That clip is fantastic oylo! I can't fault it (and I like the music too).

    I'm amazed that the hexa-copter holds the camera very still with no hint of vibration or jolting when you change direction. I suppose all those rotors give it some sort of gyroscopic effect.

    What do you mean by challenges to set the camera correctly?

    I haven't done a lot of video recording with my 5N, and it's not a media I'm too familiar with. However, I did notice a slight stuttering on parts of your movie (and in some of mine too especially when I pan).

    I'm wondering if the speed type of the memory card have is not fast enough for HD video and could be lagging behind?

    I also found the info below from the 5N handbook... mostly gibberish to me, but you might be able to find some clue?

    The AVCHD format is a high definition digital video camera format used to record a
    high definition (HD) signal of either the 1080i specification1) or the 720p specification2)
    using efficient data compression coding technology. The MPEG-4 AVC/H.264 format is
    adopted to compress video data, and the Dolby Digital or Linear PCM system is used to
    compress audio data.

    The MPEG-4 AVC/H.264 format is capable of compressing images at higher efficiency
    than that of the conventional image compressing format. The MPEG-4 AVC/H.264
    format enables a high definition video signal shot on a digital video camera recorder to
    be recorded on 8 cm DVD discs, hard disk drive, flash memory, memory card, etc.

    Recording and playback on your camera
    Based on the AVCHD format, your camera records with the high definition image
    quality (HD) mentioned below.


    Video signal:

    1080 60i-compatible device
    MPEG-4 AVC/H.264 1920 × 1080/60i, 1920 × 1080/24p

    1080 50i-compatible device
    MPEG-4 AVC/H.264 1920 × 1080/50i, 1920 × 1080/25p

    Audio signal: Dolby Digital 2ch


    Recording media: Memory card

    1) 1080i specification
    A high definition specification which utilizes 1,080 effective scanning lines and the interlace system.

    2) 720p specification
    A high definition specification which utilizes 720 effective scanning lines and the progressive system.

    3) Data recorded in AVCHD format other than the above mentioned cannot be played on your camera.

    Thank you everybody and thanks for the info..

    I'm using this SanDisk Extreme Pro 16Gb (95 Mb/s) (SD HC I) memory card. I think it is ok for video, but not sure.

    Any experience?
