Anyone using a quadcopter for aerial stills?
Jul 5, 2013

I recently got a DJI Phantom quadcopter and have been shooting video with it. I am thinking about attaching my Canon S95 to it to shoot still shots from the air. I can use CHDK to provide intervalometer functions.

My GoPro cameras have this ability but the lens is fixed focal length and fisheye. The stills are only 5MP.

The quadcopter can lift a DSLR but I would not want to risk it.
