Yes, I agree on that.  :)

Just wanted to know if someone is using something like that. I had a Toughbook before mainly because of the screen brightness as I work on the field with sun on my screen and as is time to upgrade I wondered if someone has any experience with these.

Hello all,

I know what I would use in normal environment, but for a rough environments and not a bottomless budget I would probably go with something like Getac S400 or Panasonic Toughbook 52.

Anyone using something like that?

Hello all,

I agree with JMR in aspect of using a lighter camera/lens mainly because of the flight time which is an issue using multirotors. Well, can be an issue if using heavy cameras  :)

I have been using a Nikon D800 and a D5200, but am currently testing a Oly E-PL5, wich is a nice little bugger. Especially with 17mm f/1.8 lens. Had a Sony NEX, but had an issue with in-flight triggering as it only has a IR remote option... if you don't want to use servo or hack the camera. Am waiting for the new Sony full frame's which should be announced in several days.

Anyway, I know microdrone and mikrokopter products and am actually using mikrokopter electronics on my drones and haven't had an issue with it - yet  :) ( I use moisture protection and crash cages on all electronic components ). As for the wiring or electronic protection it basically depends on the frame you use - meaning, if you use MK and need one, you must make it or buy a kit or RTF package, that offers it. They are available, but ignored as everyone wants to lower the weight.

Microdrone offers you a great complete package and looking at the md4-3000 it sure is nice. 8) 

Best regards,
