Wooden Skids

Continuing to work with the new little camera and its wide-angle lens.

It's a tough compromise. An SLR viewfinder makes it much easier to see the tilt and skew of the camera, which wide-angle lenses are incredibly susceptible to. But the telecentricity requirements for a wide-angle lens to clear the space needed for a mirror box makes them large and introduces design requirements that have nothing to do with making a good image.

I have broken the links to hundreds and hundreds of photos, which will take a long time to repair. The workaround is to replace "photo.matthewpiers" in the link URL with "matthewpiers.smugmug". Awkward, but only temporary.

This is happening because I have revamped matthewpiers dot com. More of what I write and photograph will be going there, so check it out as well.
