I would consider the light sensitivity of the lenses. Many compacts have a very poor light sensitivity and are only able to get good pictures with a bright light (sunny day).

Those are not able to get good pictures on a cloudy day, or near sunset, maybe if handheld, but not in AP.

Just a suggestion but look @ the Canon Pro 1 I have used it with great success and have the GenLED’s to control Zoom/Shutter So easy to use.
A Picture with the Pro 1 on my Predator Condor Gasser:

This photo was cropped but still had enough for a nice picture!

I don’t use the Zoom much on the Heli but I do on the PoleCam..
Here is a link and look @ the Product Description:

Tatayoyo:
What is a good range for light sensitivity?


HUTCH964:
I have been looking at the Canon Pro I and I like! I have owned a bunch of canon cameras I curently have a Powershot A75 and a Canon Rebel EOS. Eventually I will mount the Rebel on there. But I am waiting till I get a Gasser for that application! I am thinking the Pro will probably be the ticket for this application!

What you are looking for is the 'f 'number of the lens. You really need a minium of f2.8. f2.4 would be even better. The small the number the better as it lets more light into the camera.

Cheers
