I have Copterworks AF25B and will be mounting Ace One to it soon.
We have been asked to to few jobs, where we need to fly 300-500 meters quite fast. So the only thing we see option is mount a FPV camera and fly with a monitor.

Can people tell my pros and cons, why am I not seeing many doing this in arial film work?

It's actually done quite a lot. Search youtube for it. Most of the really good quality shots require a nice enough gimbal system. There are some guys that are filming baja and motocross races with LR/FPV Heli's and are pretty successful at it.

Watch at YouTube

<--- I think those folks were some of the first to do a lot of that type of filming.

I have the same airframe, well almost. The only concern is if there are people around. I would not fly that beast over a crowd.

Your crowd comment... I have seen a few idiots fly low over crowds. One video from my country was posted of a "commercial" flight low and fast inside a stadium in the dark at a football game! Absolute madness.
This is how law enforcement of model flying starts!

How often has something (because our models are full of electronics) simply gone wrong...

Fly safe...
