Thats very cool ! I just dicoverd chungdha on youtube, showing some nice stuff.
And this DIY rig does not look crap like most stuff out there :)
Video not available in Germany, maybe Vimeo would do better?
Hmm, does anyone noticed the incredible low dynamic range from the inspire1 camera? i havent seen any good looking footage where the sky isnt blownout! But there is tons of great looking footage from gopro, where the sky is not overexposed.
How can dji build such a nice copter and put such a crappy camera on it? I will never understand the marketing genius behind that...
Theres no Link to watch anything :)

I have a Sony A57, which got replaced by a GH4 now. What youre trying to get is not really possible with the A58! The Camera does not work fine at Lowlight/ higher iso and will always produce lots of noise or artefacts. The low recordingbitrate and Avchd isnt a great help also... Using fast lenses might help a bit, but fast lenses for Sony are expensive.
But theres a way you can get cleaner noisefree videos using a noise reduction tool like neatvideo http://www.neatvideo.com/ or else. Having, as for example, After Effects in your pipeline, you can mask the noised areas and use noisereduction tools. It mostly gives a good and clean result.
