Determination of aerial camera shutter and aperture settings to produce consistently high quality aerial photographs is a task complicated by numerous variables. Presented in this article are brief discussions of each variable and specific data which may be used to systematically control each. The variables discussed include sunlight, aircraft altitude, subject and season, film speed and optical system. Data which may be used as a base reference are included and encompass two sets of sensitometric specifications for two film-chemistry processes along with camera-aircraft parameters which have been established and used to produce good exposures. Information contained here may be used to design and implement an exposure determination system for aerial photography. /Author/
