I'm currently doing my hour building towards my CPL (commercial pilots license) and will be doing a lot of flying around Europe with a friend. I'm looking to take a lot of photo's as its a memorable time and should also have some magnificent photo opportunities. I'm a novice photographer but have spent quite a bit of time over the last couple of years taking various shots with my Mum's Nikon D1 so I have an idea at least of the various settings/modes. The camera will need to be digital, I'll be taking vast amounts of shots and since the camera will quite often be hanging out of a window to avoid the relevant parts of the airframe it needs to be reasonably light. What would you guys suggest? Cost isn't an issue so recommend whatever you like. Thanks. - Edit, I should mention that I will be taking ground shots too, some of which will be at the Moto GP's since we're going to follow them around Europe over the summer.
