    And where is the photo of a long pole (or tall post) you warned us about?

    An interesting device (that takes these shots).

    Thanks Matt,

    Hi Henry, great shots. It would be great to know a bit more about how they were created. For example, what image projection types did you use to create these images...given that they encompass such a wide vertical angle? What software did you use for the stitching? Thanks.

    I think the answer is the last three pictures in the linked gallery "More of my Widelux pics" in Matt's post.

    Might have to think about doing some tall verticals myself now

    This is old school technology; I have a freaky, old, film camera called a Widelux. No stitching, no projection necessary. These are all single exposures. After it comes out of the camera it just needs a little Diafine and fixer. There is a little info about the camera at my blog, or you can google "Widelux". The Widelux is a "swing lens panoramic camera"; there are a few other brands and models out there such as the Noblex, the Horizon, etc...

    In this photo the lens is posed mid-exposure. It normally starts out inside the body on one side, and rotates to the other during the exposure. A small, vertical (to the camera body) slit is all that is exposed at a time. During the exposure the slit travels all the way across 6cm of 35mm film.
