    I plan on flying the black magic cinema camera 2k next week. I will be flying a flat octo with an alexmos brushless gimbal. For fpv I will be using the Teradek Clip and Ubiquiti Router. For anyone who has flown this camera, are there any speed bumps I might encounter with the fpv or anything else about the camera? Is it as straight forward as prepping and flying any DSLR camera on an alexmos gimbal with a Teradek Clip? I'm thinking we will use the 24-105 IS lens as well. maybe the 24 IS prime.

    your main issue is the BM does NOT have an HDMI output, you need an SDI to HDMI converter. I ran into that issue a few weeks ago when trying to run it on my hand rig.

    It's not a great camera at all for aerials. You don't see them flown often. The cropped sensor and rolling shutter make it difficult. The 24-105 is a heavy lens and you will need something wider to get much usable results with this camera. It is a bit heavier and bulkier than a dslr so it will really make a small alexmos setup work hard. In my opinion, the pocket camera is much better, with the lumix 12-35 it has a nice range and looks nearly identical to the cinema camera even though it only shoots 1080. Even better still, the new 4K.
