"I also use a Sony RX100 without gimbal on the Iris+ (I use a Canon s100 in the same way). I made a simple interface plate out of thin plywood that allows the camera to be mounted with the top facing forward. The interface plate is attached with…"
"Having been in the field for a few years now my perspective has changed somewhat. Many folks, including myself, over-estimated the rate of adoption by farmers. I think it can be attributed to a belief that aerial imagery would be a clear benefit in…"
"We are now using the Sony a5100 for most projects (RGB and NDVI). It has a 24MP sensor with excellent dynamic range. It is also light weight and small enough for easy installation when used with the Sony 16mm or 20mm E-mount lenses."
"I've had several MaxMax-converted cameras. Never had a problem, so I'm surprised to hear about Michal's issue, but they are pricey.
Event38 has a filter that is not quite equivalent to the MaxMax filters, but still useful.
A potential new option,…"
"It is possible to use two cameras. We started with that method. However, it is a challenge to obtain precise synchronization between the cameras, it makes data processing more difficult, and it is not a complete solution in terms of band selectivity…"
You are seeing some of the complexities associated with using converted "NDVI" cameras. It does not make the data useless, but you have to take the limitations into consideration. One of the important factors to realize is that the data…"
"It was unclear from the way you asked the question whether or not you were aware that you need a visible AND a NIR band to calculate NDVI. Having both on one sensor makes image processing much easier. Be careful of "IR" conversions that only take…"
"The RF70 is superb. I want one please. Well done to you guys at RoboFlight!
However, dishing the Z3 is not necessary. I think both are excellent platforms if used appropriately. The Z3 sure is a nice hobby/FPV plane, but it is definitely not…"
"Something that I fail to comprehend (maybe because it is incomprehensible), is why the FAA is concerned about commercial vs recreational use of model aircraft, when the FAAs reason for existence is to keep the NAS safe. Getting paid for a flight…"
