Re: Carrier planes not good enough for aerial reconnaissance?

For mapping, as used for planning and assisting invasions, larger cameras were normally used and these would have been too large for carrier-borne aircraft. The US tended to use B-24s for this kind of mission. Smaller cameras would mainly be used for "spot" targets over generally smaller areas.
