    So, my CG03 camera is at servicing, but I wanted to shoot some footage anyway.
    So I installed a Samsung Xcover3 to the Q500 :D

    Horrible, horrible, image quality, but hey, it works!
    Should I do a Periscope transmission from the air? :)

    At least you got to experiment with the Samsung.

    Out of the box, brand new, the CGO3 had problems with the SD card slot. Video glitches at room temperature, and would not even detect the card at -7c. But my reseller just gave me a new Q500 4K so I don't have to wait for the servicing of the camera! Awesome!

    A quick raw video out of the camera from today:
    I messed up the shot on the camera tilt up, but nice images anyway. :)
