The RVJET Mapper is a complete fully autonomous mapping platform designed to be used with compact digital cameras like the popular Sony A6000.
The dustproof camera mount is designed for compact cameras like the Sony A6000 series. The A6000 is the optimal camera because it is lightweight, includes a flash hotshoe , and has the ability to be triggered through the MULTI port. For example, Sony A5100 is a fine camera for mapping, but doesn't have the flash hot shoe. Sony NEX5 is a great camera but only supports infrared trigger; the MULTI wired trigger works better. We recommend the Sony f2.8 20mm pancake lens. A more affordable lens which works OK is the Sony 16mm pancake lens; it is not as sharp at the edges.
The Sony RX0 is very rugged and has fast shutter & quality optics. Waterproof, shockproof ,dustproof. Downside is no flash hotshoe.
