Taking aerail photos


I just purchased a Pentax 67 camera. I am in th process of lerning the camera(never used medium format before). Iv;e taken 2 rolls of 120 film. 1 was 160 the other 400. The 160 turned out much better that the 400. My question for you is, while the pictures appear to have enough exposure they just don't seem as clear as I invisioned. Any help would be appreciatied.

Kerry L. Walker   What do you mean by the 160 turned out better than the 400? We need more specifics. Please upload a couple of examples.

Gray Hebb   The 160 speed film pictures turned out much clearer(not perfect) the the 400 speed film pictures. I am experimenting with the settings trying to get good results. I am looking for general suggestions on how to get better pictures. I am taking the photos from a high wing cessna. I am always shaded looking at a sunlit area. Does this make a difference in my shutter speed and f stops???

Vince Broesch   Are you taking the door of the aircraft? If you are shooting through the plexiglass, you will not get good results.

Vince Broesch   Whoops, typo, that should read "door off" the aircraft. Anyway, aside from freezing and insurance limitations, you really should get rid of the door.

Gray Hebb   I don't take the door off but I do open the window. I don't take the pictures thru the glass.
