I wonder how useful the 27x zoom range when it's used on a brushless gimbal ... I was looking at Sony's BOSS camcorders which have incredible image stabilisation built into them - like this amazing video from Mikrokopter from 2012:

That's a good idea Glenn - I've got an S95 on one of my platforms but only use CHDK to allow me to trigger the shutter via the USB port. I hadn't thought of zooming the camera as well ... I like your thinking!

Cheers, David :)

The problem with the CHDK cameras is that when in shooting mode they disable the HDMI port, so if you want to get the analog video signal out as well as controlling the camera via USB, you need to use an 11 pin mini USB cable. There are a few available at some KAP shops, but they are quite pricey for what they are. I'm planning on making my own once my order of 11 pin connectors arrives.

Those remote zoom camcorders look pretty nice!
