Default Aerial Shots with ZS7 from Helicopter

This was a Bell 412 and shakes like an out of balance washing machine...the ZS7 did a very good job from what I see especially the Power OIS...I can't even beleive the shots came out as good as they did...





Zoom is excellent from the next two photos you can see the zoom and also the stabilization when zoomed even in a Helicopter that is shaking furiously...

Did a great job of zooming in and decent stabilization on the M/V Pacific Supplier (I only realized this was one of our vessels after reviewing the photos...


Some of the local villages...it was overcast and dark so I thought they came out well...

LTZ-

Surely a different sort of viewpoint. Well done.
