ihv: Weird, CCD for aerials? Aren't shutter speeds more critical i.e. higher ISOs are more desired? CCD goes barely ISO400-800.
If I were to take aerial, i would choose the brightest day possible with sun at the highest which produce less shadow.Aiming at iso 100 if possible to get 1/1000. At such distance aperture is not worrying coz you focus at infinity anyway.So iso 800 is plenty imho.
Why these folks whining over something that is so obvious. If it doesnt have it, it means the manufacture is not targeting at you to buy their stuff. Stop complaining. Get what you need and keep taking pictures. Yes the camera cant make you a good photographer, but your skill can
