I'm considering using a smartphone to take a series of aerial photos from an APM controlled fixed wing aircraft before stitching them together with something like AgiSoft.
The benefits of smart phones versus a compact camera that I can see are.
1. Smaller and lighter
3. Can be programmed
4. Inbuilt GPS
There are some good camera apps that allow shutter speed control with a timed continuous shooting mode.
Does anyone have experience or any insight into trying this?
