GH3 too big, alternatives??
5 months ago

I have a multi-rotor of medium size (6 motors).  The camera gimbal I have will not support a GH3, and I want better video than GoPro.  The gimbal is actually designed for a NEX-7 or GX7 sized camera.

I almost bought a GH3, but I think the center of gravity is too tall.  I installed my Canon Rebel XT (old), which is roughly the same size as the GH3, and the COG was too high to balance on the gimbal.  I saw some video footage from Blunty comparing the GH3 and GX7, and I really liked the GX7, but is there something better out there for the same price?  (Besides the BMPCC- my computer isn't up to processing BMPCC I don't think- 8gig ram, 4 year old video car, etc.)

Thanks!
