That was a bit str8 forward against Canon. I am not an expert but i am sure there are a lot of reasons you can get non sharped and wavy footage. Never the less i agree that Hd camcorders and flash memory ones are not the best for AV but still there are some good ones out there.

As for the choice of a camcorder i am into to it as well but i would be looking for satisfaction and not a plain brand name. The Lumix LX3 is a fantastic photo camera - camcorder with the only disadvantage that there's no live feed for FPV flight or for the camera operator. It would be nice to discuss what you need to do with it in order to get a more comprehensive feedback.

Hope it helps.

canon problems
Yes your right , very straightforward. I have no Idea what they do
but their camera's hate the slightest vibrations. I spend so many hours on some of them that I got frustrated with canon. Every sony I tried till now just does the job. I also liked canon better as a normal camera but I gave up. The only good camera I used with AP is the canon 5DmarkII But its on the heavy side especially with a zoomlens.
If I have to go heavy I prefer a sony EX1 ( still best for me till now ) or when super light is needed a sony HC5/7 or SR11

good luck

The truth is that this is not the first time i hear about canon being sensitive to vibrations. I am currently on the run for a new camera (Currently stuck with contourHD)and fortunately i don't have the money yet so i will not make a hurry up purchase. I guess canon is a stay away for aerials after all.

Look at the panasoninc SD1-9 for a smaller camera or the panasonic HMC150/151/152. Both of these cameras are CCD and take great video. The CMOS cameras at times can show wavy lines/rolling shutter. If you are stuck on canon then look for a canon that has a CCD chip.

Coperstudios,

Am not stuck with canon. They look great and have a good marketing plan that's it. The HMC series are way heavy for my trex 600 but the SD9 look nice and very lightweight.

I only fly Canon still cameras but Sony HC5 rocks for video. The great thing about the HC5+7 range is that you can still find the odd one out there cheaply

Hmmmm.... this is strange. Did you have this problem from the beginning of your purchase?

When it goes to standby is it after a loss of video signal? Some cameras (e.g aiptek stops recording when there is a loss of video signal). How much vibration you have on the heli? Maybe something got affected inside the camera eventually due to the vibs coming from the heli and need to be seen by a technician.

Also another important think is that sometimes this camcorders go on standby every time you close the LCD monitor. Try using it with the LCD screen open as you would record if it wasn't on the heli.

Any more info on this could help understand the situation. You could also try contacting people in video camera forums to see whether they faced same problem (regardless the platform used in this case rc heli.)

Hope you get this sorted.

The Sony DCR-SR47 is a HHD recording camera. HHD cameras generally don't like the vibrations from helis. If they stay working through spool-up, they are likely to stop once you pull any sort of "G's" as a disk-preservation function.
That is where either solid-state or tape is better for what we do.
