Pictures of Clouds from inside a plane
Hi!.

Can someone advise me what are the requirements for a camera to take high quality pictures of clouds from a airplane (not from the ground)?.

Thanks,Ricardo Xisto..

Hi quality is going to be relative as the airplane window is going to be the limiting factor. They are not the best thing to be shooting through..

True, they are always greasy with fingerprints or nose prints and sometime something just stuck on them....

Budget airlines at least... I never fly first class before...

Depending on the plane you're on, see if there is a rear window/door at rear of plane with no seats next to it. If so, these may be the better vantage points. Don't attempt to use a polarizer as it will have issues with the dual pane portholes..

Aim at an angle to minimize glare from the window panes and try to focus on more distant subject matter so the close up distortions of the window are minimized.....

Mount it on the wing and make it remotely controlled and on a 360 degree swivel and protect it from the elements..

Since that is costly you'll have to make due with shooting through dirty plane windows...

The absolute first requirement is to have a window seat!.

Sorry, couldn't resist..

Taking cloud images out the window of an airplane is a satisfying endeavor to me and always yields decent results. Since I teach meteorology, I'm always on the lookout for photo ops. I've had my best results by placing the lens up against the window. Not flush, but with at least one edge touching the class. This minimized internal light reflections from the airplane interior..

Doesn't matter what angle I shoot. I just want to be close to the glass. Also, try for an area away from window scratches, but in reality, since they are so close, they don't show up anyway. Higher up the window seems to work better for me too. I think that there are less reflections near the top than at the bottom..

These experiences apply to dSLR cameras. Don't think p&s would do nearly as well. Good luck. Remember, digital "film" is inexpensive, so you can afford to experiment..

Taken from my window seat. Be careful of reflections from window. Best not to touch lens to window as will cause vibration. Use a fast shutter speed, may have to up ISO..
