I am on the way to make a description on the wiki, but an abstarct now:
- Canon: look for the Canon Hack Development Kit. It has an USB Remote
function, which actually triggers the camera via the USB connector
- I fixed the camera to the fuselage without any gimbal. I applied only
some precautional measure to avoid the causes of a crash.
- if you implement the digital_cam and the photogrammetry module, you'll
get a telemetry message with attitude and position information on each
shot. The message additionally contains an incremental ID, that can be
paired with the image names of the camera.
- image stiching: Hugin. An own script is useful to create an initial
arrangement of images for the Hugin based on the telemetry messages.

I'll be more detailed when I am back from holiday.
