looking for a camera for mapping

Hy All,

I am a land surveyor. I have a new x650 quadrocopter.
I'd like to make aerial photos to make maps of an excavation.
Please tell me a camera which make sharp pictures from the air (10-20m).

any reasonable compact camera would do at that range. Biggest problem is that you will not be very high so the field of view will be quite small. You also need to be able to trigger the camera or let it run automatically. At around $80 the Canon A490 will accept CHDK control and gives 10Mp. At the price it is almost disposable!
