I failed to mention I do the aerial shots with an RC plane.
I do aerial photography using used 7 mp Nikon 7900s and get good quality images in wide range of lighting moving at 5-25 mph at 100-700 feet alt. I go through 2-4 cameras a year. A Pentax W30 is almost indistructable and great in rain or water landing but only produces equal quality to Nikon in perfect light conditions. I shoot in sports mode, continuous, infinite focus, wide angle all auto settings to get fastest shutter. No feed back, I shoot blind, but get the shot.Question: You are far more versed on camera tech than I do you suggest I upgrade in the GoPro or Nikon/Luminex etc. direction. Getting the cameras wired for remote activation is a consideration.
