Various types of aerial camears:

Single lens camera: A single-lens reflex (SLR) camera is a camera that uses a semi-automatic moving mirror system which permits the photographer to sometimes see exactly what will be captured by the film or digital imaging system, as opposed to pre-SLR cameras where the view through the viewfinder could be significantly different from what was captured on film.

Multi lens camera: The multi-lens camera is a unique piece of technology that follows the principles of lomography for capturing still images. Lomography encourages a light-hearted approach to photography and encompasses over-saturated colors in the images, blurring, and alternative film processing techniques.
Strip Camera:

Panoramic Camera:
Digital Cameras:
 The use of digital cameras is slowly increasing in popularity, paralleling the popularity of digital cameras in the general public.

The CCD (charged coupled device) is the electronic component on which the light from the lens is focused.
 Digital pictures are made up of tiny "squares", each of a single color, called pixels. Each CCD has a maximum number of pixels that it uses to generate the image.
