Aerial photography is changing so fast, info more than two days old is suspect.
For the benefit of weight and keeping costs down, integrated camera/gimbals are the way to go. Separate cameras a la a GoPro, is less desirable for affordable copters.
At this time, the sales leader DJI, makes excellent copter/gimbal/camera packages. You will most likely end up with them.
Just don't do what I saw one fan do while chasing 611 in 2015: We are trackside, the loco is minutes away and there is a guy who has just popped open the DJI case and is now reading the instructions...

I Foam Therefore I Am.
