    As to taking photos with air stewardess, a PnS is also less intimidating for all.

    I find that having a point and shoot camera is more versatile on the plane than an SLR. So for tours, I'll always lug a PnS along.

    Some skyline photos for your reference (shot with Canon IXUS 800 IS. No soft photos!

    When flying over places like these, I wish I have my DSLR with me. This one snapped with my camera phone:

    one trick to minimize reflection from the windows is to actually touch your lens against the window and snap. this way your lens is perpendicular to the internal window the only chances of reflection is from the external window panel liao.

    if u want clear pic, its best to be seated forward of the wings. sat behind the wings during my flight to london, my shots the lower half is slight blur compare to the top. reason is the jet trail from the engine.

    That could be too much of a hassle for some, check out SeatGuru for the optimal seating location as an alternative.

    According to my friend who is an air-stewardess..

    There's no strict rules restricting photography on-board the S.I.A plane BUT different airlines varies.
    Just try not to use flash when taking photos of people and people might be affected and thus, compliant.

    It's best not to do it while taking off and landing (due to safety reasons).

    When i took a flight to taiwan (to and fro), all passengers must not have any backpacks or bags of any kind on their laps or under the chair during take off and landing. All must be stowed away above...

    So my dslr was stuck up there when we were landing and i saw the most beautiful sunset flashed by me. I wished i had a compact camera to put in my pockets then...
    Dun blame the camera...blame the one behind the viewfinder :bsmilie:

    If you had travelled in a commercial airliner being flown through the clouds in the darkness of the night, flashes from the anti-collision strobe lights along the wing tip can be extremely annoying.

    Unfortunately windows in the cockpit does not have shades and there was this time I actually inquired with the pilot during a flight test on why is there a lighting strike in the vicinity every regular interval. Silly me.

    ... in some airlines, no camera was allowed to hold by hand during landing and takeoff.

    In America, you have to be strap in your seats 1 hour before and after every landing and takeoff with your hands in the air, no chit chatting or visits to the lavatory allowed.

    Among other things, during the final hour of flight customers must remain seated, will not be allowed to access carry-on baggage, or have personal belongings or other items on their laps.
    GG if your flight is only around a hour.

    I'm too obedient and turn off all electronic equipment during take-off and landing
    It is the camera, not the photographer.
