For aerial shots with a model helicopter I want to make shots in the 720/60p format. The maximum payload is 500 gram. Any idea which camera I should use for broadcasting in HD?

I think you might need something like this.

Looks good. But is the quality good enough to use the shots in a full HD P2 project?

There is some compromise in the quality and workflow, I think the biggest problem you will be faced with is going to be vibration as opposed codec quality. Other problems should be lack of manual control but the benefit is size.

HD Video Resolution Modes: (subject to change, pending final firmware release)

1080p = 1920x1080 pixels (16:9), 30 fps, 15 Mbit/s data rate
960p = 1280x960 pixels (4:3), 30 fps, 12 Mbit/s data rate
720p = 1280x720 pixels (16:9), 60 fps, 15 Mbit/s data rate
720p = 1280x720 pixels (16:9), 30 fps, 8 Mbit/s data rate
WVGA = 848x480 pixels (16:9), 60 fps, 8 Mbit/s data rate
Sensor Type: 1/2.5" HD CMOS, 2.2┬Ám-sized pixels
Light Sensitivity: Super low-light sensitivity (>1.4 V/lux-sec)
Video Format: H.264 compression, saved as Windows- & Mac-compatible MPEG4 (.mp4) file
Exposure Control: Auto with user selectable center weighted average and spot metering settings
White Balance: Auto

I did some research. A build in stabilizer would help a lot. What do you think about something like the Sony HDR-XR520? Is there a similar model from Panasonic? I would prefer AVCIntra or AVCHD.

That video camera is discontinued.

Besides, all the reviews of the Canon Vixia are much better in almost every way. I'm planning to get one very soon for other applications.
