An Urban Legend that just won't go away!
We have all been told that a camera with a rolling shutter cannot do survey mapping. This has been repeated by so many that it just drives me nuts.
I have tested that Myth and it is an Urban Legend.
The latest digital cameras have extremely fast shutter speeds.
I have mapped hundreds of missions with a rolling shutter camera with no issues whats so ever over the past several years.
"Below is the worst case scenario with an extremely slow shutter speed. This would not be good for mapping or any other kind of photography. This camera is not good for anything."
