Hi from the Eastern Shore of MD

I am new to this Forum but have used Pentax for a long time. Still have an MX and a LX Film Camera sitting in a bag. For Digital I have a K10D, and an old Cannon S-200 pocket cam.

Started with 828 roll fill camera in the late 50's while in 4th grade. Later had a darkroom in high school. Took the NYIP course in the 70's and did a bunch of weddings and some commercial work with Bronica 6x6's for years. Went back to real work for 15 years and now am 'retired' and working on Fun photography. My current interest is aerial photography from my Ultra Light airplane.

Wheels, Wings and Radio Things

Any tips on what settings on the K10D will work best from the air? Usual conditions are shooting the ground from 500-1000 feet up in the daytime. Problems are camera shake and movement due to vibrations and buffetting in the air.

Welcome to the forum Paul, glad you could make it. Ask your questing in the Pentax Beginners section and I'm sure someone will come up with an answer for you.

Welcome to PF Paul. Too bad you weren't around a month ago. We just had a Pentax Gathering in Cambrige at Blackwater NWR! No idea about the aerial photography but we have a few flyers hereabouts. You may want to check with "Heliphoto."
