Sony HDR-CX730 / CX740 / CX760 / PJ710 / PJ720 / PJ740 / PJ760

Still working on configuration, training and evaluation, but getting some pretty pictures in the meantime. Today I went to nearby Catalina State Park on the north side of Tucson, Arizona. The Cinestar 8 is proving to be a very stable, fun flying machine. I am still getting familiar with its flying characteristics when it's got a big payload. Today I had the 2-axis stabilized gimbal with the Sony CX760V camera on it. The camera has 96GB of internal memory, which is great, but unfortunately I have to completely unmount it from the copter to get to the footage. So I decided to try putting an SD card in it and record to that. But whilst testing it earlier in the day, I had inadvertently recorded about 20 minutes of...nothing. So when I got out in the park, I only got about 10 minutes of recording time, so I missed the spectacular sunset. Oh well...I'm still figuring all this out. :-) Happy New Year 2013. I'm looking forward to a kickass year!
