Interested to hear others findings on this, here is my findings so far... Which is better for Video only - Sony cx730 or CX760 vs DSLR Camera such as 600D 650D 7D 5D ? DSLR - 600D 650D 7D 5D: + Has better manual control. - Weight is much more (1kg in total, with lens) - Has 12 min record limit - Has very limited stabilisation (depends on lens used, but none will come close to cx760 stabilisation) - lenses can be expensive if you buy a few. - can not zoom in flight (not easy to do, but you can install a servo with belt to zoom lens in flight) - Must get your manual settings right on the ground, as you can not change in flight. + Perhaps has sharper, crisper footage with a bit more punch (more color saturation out of camera). Sony cx730 cx760: - Has limited manual control (but once you know the options available it does not limit aerial shooting IMHO). + Weight is much less (550g total - more flight time) + Can record for 7 hours full HD 50p with built in 96gb flash drive. + Excellent stabilisation on all axis (except roll, but the radian will keep roll perfect for you). + Can easily zoom in and out while in flight (LANC or IR controller). No need to buy extra lenses, built in lens has very good wide angle, and more than enough zoom for aerial work. - Must get your manual settings right on the ground, as you can not change in flight (can use full auto mode, but pros will not want to do this, hard to cut footage in post if exposure keeps changing). + No jello effect at all (unless you break a prop or have a multi that is flying terribly). + More keeper footage. Cleans up vibrations due to wind or thermals, etc. Please keep your comments on topic, only mentioning DSLR vs cx760 (no other mirrorless, or GH3, NEX5 or anything like that for this thread pls).
