Hi all,

Have recently purchased a Matrice 600 Pro. Does anyone have camera recommendations for still photography?
I'm currently using a Z3 camera, the video quality is sensational, but the still photos aren't great, they're quite rough and grainy even when I play around with the settings.
I'm new to drone flying, but have quite a lot of experience with high quality DSLR cameras.
I'm using the Go App to fly it. Is there another app I should be using to make better use of the camera?  

Thanks in advance!

The only way your going to get DSLR quality is to use a DSLR camera.
I shoot a Nikon D7100 and also have a Z3 mounted on an Inspire 1.  I am happy with the Z3 performance even though it's no where near like the images i can capture with the Nikon because i understand its limitations.

If you have done much work with your DSLRs you'll understand that the size of the sensor , the quality of the lens and variable aperture are what make the most difference. You just can't cram that into a small form factor.
The X5 variants are a step in the right direction but dollar for dollar they still can't compare to a DSLR. Things are improving every year though.

Which DSLRs can be used? Does the Ronin MX gimbal suit most DSLRs?

How does it work? Sorry just not quite sure how to put a good camera on to it and still have the video feed to fly it too?

I'd love to put my smaller Canon 500D on there. I see there is a gimbal specifically for the 5D Mark 3, but what about the rest?

It's mid range in size, so it can accommodate a good range of DSLR sizes.
