This weekend I finished making the first panoramic camera and got a chance to shoot some film in it. Overall the results were less than desirable but I learned a lot from the process and I think I’m going to keep working on building more homemade cameras. The shot I was taking above appears in the left frame on the picture below.

Last weekend was the Route 66 Regatta, an annual rowing event put together by the Tulsa Rowing Club. It was pretty wet but I was still able to take some cool photos. For the future though I need to get a camera that is more weather sealed, the 100-400 pushpull lens I have probably got some water into it, which is unfortunate.
For more photos from the event click the picture to watch a slideshow.
Got a chance to try out the new 5d mark II during the 4th of July fireworks yesterday. Oh yeah, I bought a whole bunch of new camera equipment… 5d mark II, 580EX II flash, battery grip, and a new 100-400mm L IS USM lens from Canon. Its all super nice but I’m not really used to operating it yet. (more…)
