No where near 50. These are frame grabs from the video taken with full manual and the helicopter flying at full speed. The aerobatics I speak of, most are performed at maximum of 20 feet high unless they are doing a different trick that is based on alot of space..

This just happens to be me flying and my friend(who has only been videoing a year or so) is taping me when I fly.

For fast motion up close, as I was saying, it depends on your skills very much and the settings, but you can get it to work for you and have great results if you learn the camera..

Good luck on your decision.
hi i notice from those screen grabs that it is outdoors bright light therefore i take it the iris is quite good depth of field.even with nd filters on the vx would be giving me a hard time if i was trying to get a shallow depth so im sure the v1 has an even deeper depth of field due to the chip sizes.therefore a manual focus would prob be possible and so i would agree. but indoors low light possibly different ..just a thought..but next time im down the rink i will give it a go..cheers john

Yes John, I try to keep the iris as low as possible for the majority of my shooting to be honest and with the heli's it's no exception.
