    Yes .. interesting but nowhere near a perfect solution.
    It would be great to put a 28 MP camera in the air but the limitations on this are significant.
    1.. If it's from Dronexpert, it's going to be expensive. Their Inspire version costs 600 euro = US$670.
    2. The camera with standard lens weighs 454 grams + whatever the Dronexpert piece weighs.
    This weight is going to have serious implications on performance and endurance and put limitations on your flying.
    3. No FPV !! What??
    What serious photographer looking for better quality pictures would be happy sending his camera out and not be able to line up his shot? You need to be able to to check your composition and see if you have the tops of buildings in the frame etc.
    4. Fixed camera - unable to be adjusted higher or lower in flight.

    I'd love a better camera in the air but not tempted by this.
    Given how easy it is to rotate the Phantom and to tilt the camera, I can't see this being an improvement on what we can do already.
    There's no way I could take pictures like this with it
