I have been experimenting with different gain settings to get stable footage as well as trying to work out a good post processing workflow. Shot in 2.7k and reduced to 1080p in Photoshop. Spliced together in Premiere Pro with some help from After Effects.
Verdict so far: The P2 is ridiculously good - it's really an amazing tool. It's trivial to fly (you get the hang of it after 15 minutes of practice) and yet very agile and very stable. These quadcopter platforms are truly a game changer for film. Aerial photography that was once only available in high budget productions is now available for anyone. The GPH3+ footage (Protune + Raw WB) plays very nicely with footage shot on a DSLR.
The difficult thing I think will be not overusing it :)
