    Evening clouds. Too wide to shoot. Oh wait, I has fisheye! 5N/Pentax DA1017.

    Thank you all. :)

    It was a fleeting thing (I was late to the party as usual), literally 2 minutes after the second shot this was gone as the sun had dropped below the clouds on the horizon.

    It is amazing how easy these shots are to make with the 5N/EVF. Move the EVF up as far as it goes, point the camera straight up and look through the viewfinder like you normally would. With a fixed viewfinder you're reduced to either laying on your back or doing a extreme backbend. The LCD is an option, but somewhat limited compared to the EVF.

    Now I need to go find some churches with cool ceilings… ;)

    You need to turn something like that into a 'little planet" :) Stereographic projections are GO !

    They are fun if you can get the right sky. I'll look into creating a "little planet" out of it, but I think I'd need more structure along the edge of the frame to make it work right. :)

    With a fisheye?! I'm impressed (amazed) that you didn't catch a piece of your forehead in the composition!

    Church ceilings would look great on the fisheye.

    Have you (or anyone) tried to shoot a 3D photo with the NEX yet?

    With the Pentax adapter the lens is long enough that your noggin is out of the frame. Win!

    Might have to do it off the tripod with a e-mount fisheye. I guess I'll find out if I ever see one. ;)

    I've not seen anyone who's tried 3D with a NEX so far.
