Wow that was longer than I thought!

Is this a good choice for Aerial Photography! I will be strapping it to a Raptor 50!

how do you trigger the remote? with a servo? And do you have full control of the shutter that way? Meaning you shoot continously as long as the button is pressed?

8400 is good

Oh 8400 is good, its user friendly, and works great with the black widow downlinks.

One of the good it can do is a time-lapse option.

You will try it in diffrent ways and see what works best for you. HelicamSolutions sell the camera triggers

I own about 6 units of coolpix 8400, since am making time lapse videos on 5 sites. and one is back up

Ah if you use the raw images one way to make it write faster is to use turbo flash card, they are design to write images faster then normal cards. they cost about 120USD max
