suggestion for a friend about drone and camera

Hola,

i m writing you as i need a suggestion for a friend about drone and camera to buy for his company. I'm not into Aerial drone cinematography so this is the spot where to get awesome infos. From what i've heard he's about to start all the courses for the licence stuf to fly the drone even for commercial activities but he asked me what good camera i could suggest him. I thought about gopro 4 first but he told me about a better camera like a Reflex. For what comes in my mind i'd suggest him a small Nikon d5300 but if he wants more definition it's better Pana GH4 or Sony a7sII. Unfortunately i'm currently using D7100 D5300 and d5200 and i can't be of any help. In case he decides to go with GH4 or Sony A7s what wide lens would you suggest him?
What kind of Drone would carry that kind of weight?
Many thanks guys and sorry for bothering but aerial drone imagine.....is not my fav cathegory, but it's never too late
Gracias

Re: suggestion for a friend about drone and camera

What camera is appropriate depends upon what kind of work your friend plans to do with the drone. Also, how much money he has to spend. Heavier cameras will require more expensive and complicated drone systems and have many more capabilities. What kind of budget does your friend have? What will be his anticipated needs?
