    Thank you for the link!
    I think it looks pretty good as well

    I really like what I see. Finally, still images from the I1 that match what I normally expect for photographic use. The DNG sample images have been post-produced with levels and sharpening. Unlike my MFT Olympus OM-D images, these are geotagged. Just waiting now for my X5 to arrive.

    If other samples start to appear with the same quality, I could very well be adding an Inspire Pro to the drone arsenal. Compression seems to be good enough. My other big concern is gamma in the darker colors. These samples help to show that it is there. But, I want to see the same for shaded, high-contrast shots. Fingers crossed.

    I was not overly impressed with the samples. I aerial shoot with Nex 7, 5 and recently a Sony A6000. The photos were pristine without any edits. Some of the x5 seem under exposed. Now take that I just sold my main rig with those cameras for the I1 x5....Hope the Micro 4/3rds pops more than those samples..

    Do you have the in-camera settings cranked for the A6000? Most folks take photos at lower dynamic range in order to get a better edit in the end. I'm pretty sure there will be easy settings for a more dynamic look for those folks not willing to spend time editing their photos.

    The supplied JPGs cold have gone through who knows what and with unknown settings, most of the EXIF is stripped. Heck, 4 of them have been taken nowhere near the place they're said to be from.
    The DNGs are of course RAW and while they do have preapplied edits you can see with what parameters and reset the settings and start over in your favorite RAW processing software.

    Good find @ianwood I'm looking forward to doing a test grade on those clips and throwing the DNGs into lightroom when I get home from work tonight. Thanks for the heads up.

    I'm disappointed with the video files subject matter. It would have been more helpful to assess the bitrate speed if they had been some fast moving clips.

    I don't think that's an accident. We'll see them soon enough.

    Agreed. I don't know about you guys shooting aerial video but my videos have more motion in them than those hazy samples.

    This one shows the glory of 60Mbps (7.7MBs) capture plus YouTube compression.

    Slightly better than an X3 but the same backend processor / compression was all too familiar unfortunately.

    Nope
    We are experienced, we have our own photo business for 8 years and have been Rc'ing for 30. I just think I would have adjusted those photos to show the ability of the END result. I don't want to guess or make assumptions on what it could look like.
    Sample below is a GoPro H3 from a Belly mount off our TA Matrix. We flew dual cameras, Sony a6000 off the Gyrox5 and the H3 for side shots. Obvioiusly H3's are processed but for a non stabilized shot they are ok. G0025527_tn.jpg

    Don't get me wrong I like the I1 x5 and will be ordering a package from Aerial Media on Wednesday of this week :). I just want to see images that blow me away.
