Hi,

I'm using a brand new Nikon D5000 for aerial photo, and today I tried to make a video with it. Horrible result. The image gets heavily distorted due to the vibrations on the mount. I would expect the image to vibrate, but it distorts. Does anyone else have an experience like this?

I believe it a artifact of the D5000's rolling shutter. If you pan quickly, you'll notice that vertical lines (like poles) will become slanted.

Really nothing you can do about this. It's a limitation of the camera.

Diferent cameras and diferent helicopters,.. However i can report to you that my Canon G9 Photo camera is much more sensitive to vibrations than my Sony HC5 Video camera. (Talking about both in video mode)

My G9 is only smoth in video at a specific head speed, and with my HC-5 i get the same results with diferent head speeds, and the image is very clean.

I have read that this is due to the "rolling shutter" found on CMOS cameras such as the D5000. There exists post-processing software to reduce the effect of this. One of them I have found is Deshaker for virtualdub. Does anyone have experience with this? Do Canon DSLR's also have this rolling shutter / CMOS ?

Garbage in, garbage out. DeShaker or any stabilizing program will do nothing for wavy footage, vibrating footage, or grossly bumpy footage.
