I was bored at the flying field today so I decided to do something useful, attempt to video an electric ducted fan. Damn they are fast.
:) you could get paid for that... :) hehe nice video, a bit shaky... but very nice... this is with the Sony?
Sweet - was this done with your new Sony rig??
Damn that F18 LOOKS AWESOME!! One of these days I will need to get me one of those...yes, they are quite fast! Cool Video!
What sony do you use is it nex ?I use Magix Movie edit pro + mercalli stabilizer pllugin. Magix only $80 and mercalli around $200
If you have time to learn and eiger to explore more try avisynth + deshaker plugin.
Or just use youtube stabilize feature, its good enough :) check our video here : youtube.com/capungaero
@oejang aja Sony CX550E because it can simultaneously record 1080P, take still photos and output to my FPV transmitter, in addition to being able to control its 10x zoom, shutter and record via LANC port using my radio.
I've just realised why some of the video isn't as detailed as I had expected it to be, I was recording at its 3rd highest quality mode.
Do you know if other Sony camcorders have the LANC port ?
Wich interface are you using for RC interfacing ?
@Olivier compatibility list here http://www.gentles.ltd.uk/w-rc-camera.htm
Hai, are you sure the CX550E records in progressive (1080p) mode? I got almost the same camera, an HDR XR550V. When I ordered it I thought it did 1080p and did not find out until too late that it only does interlaced (1080i) mode, which along with the AVCHD format is a pain to work with. I intend to sell it and get something better. Looking at the specs for your model it only says 1080i.
@Björn not sure, I got it mainly so I could simultaneously record video whilst taking stills and having a FPV feed. I'm thinking of mounting a GoPro next to the CX550. I agree AVCHD is a pain to work with if you use a mac like me. I haven't found anything that better than the CX550 in terms of being "jack of all trades". Sure for stills a Canon 5D mk2 would be better, and I'm sure there is a better video camera, but I haven't found anything that does everything I want it to do, and the CX550 is the best that I can find that is affordable.
If anyone finds anything better please let me know. I'm need all of the following.
1. HD video
2. HiRes stills
3. Simultaneous videos and stills with video out to FPV transmitter
4. Optical zoom
5. Image Stabilization
6. LANC remote control
