Sony came out with a new fairly compact camera with a huge footprint, 36 megapixel full frame sensor, same sensor as the nikon D800 but only 474 grams, also without a desharpening anti-aliasing filter. Its pretty expensive to put in a UAS at $2200, but might be outstanding for high performance photogrammetric mapping, maximizing coverage with fewer flight lines and hopefully decent lower light performance. Not many lenses yet, but a prime zeiss 35mm 2.8 without image stabilization might be very good.

Others have interfaced APM to sony cameras, best approaches?

I assume IR will be the only way to trigger.
