Actually all the paparazzi autopilots with the same architecture have the same source code and the code is tested a lot. Problems could possibly begin, when trying to use some new features or peripherals, or if operating the hardware out of the designed conditions (for example current overload). So using the standard software configuration (ready airframes examples with a little changes) is reliable enough to have a stable flight. Regarding the camera control - the possible configuration depends on your particular camera. I'm a big fan of a hardware unification, don't like using lots of external adapters and so on. That was actually the main idea of developing the Krooz and the latest KroozSD
autopilots. You will only need to extend your airframe configuration with you custom camera control routine (there are some ready solutions among the camera control modules).

You can purchase the KroozSD board by bidding your price here on Ebay:

Regarding the NEX5 control - the control actions, like making a picture or video shot could be done using a ready servo channel controlled solutions like this one
or just using one of the free controller pins and an infrared led with this module
