"I don't know if the S100 is actually better, I'm a lot more comfortable sending the S100 out on longer missions I guess. It's lighter which is an advantage for longer missions, and it's half the price. It does have GPS which can…"

"Thanks for all of your quick replies, moglos. I find all of this very interesting. What makes the S100 better than the NEX5 for mapping?"

"No prob with the NEX, I love it. I've read that in auto focus mode using a HDMI converter you can have periods where it takes a long delay between images (you should google it to get the details, it is only in specific situations). I've…"

"I've heard good things about the NEX5. Mostly that they're high resolution means fewer shots from higher altitudes. I've also read some have had issues with the NEX5 not being capable of capturing large numbers of shots in rapid…"

"But I also have a Sony NEX5 and that works great with live vid and triggering. You need a HDMI to analog converter. That adds about 1.5cm of width so the extra space means it might not fit on your gimbal."

Compass/GPS near motors for storage?

I have a folding gps mast for storage. When it folds down it is CMs away from the motor. The compass is not powered when it gets folded. Will this affect the compass after it is folded back up and powered on? The reason I ask is I remember the DJI nazas require a magnet be rotated around compass to "degaus" it.
