Note that we already have a Photoscan Pro license and we have an investment in Canon lenses already (a 24mm fixed and a zoom). The Canon 6D is particularly attractive because it is light weight full-frame so easier to maneuver on a pole. Will likely need fisheye because full-frame is more zoomed in. We're also budgeting for more GPU ram in our computers (NVIDIA Geoforce from 2gb to 4gb)
