Articles related to the Sony α 900 camera. Mostly panoramas taken with the camera and usually a ‘shaved’ version of the Sigma 10mm/f2.8 fisheye lens. ‘Shaved’ in this context means that I removed the metal sunshades of the lens with a saw. Now I have a 180° fisheye along the longer side of the sensor.
Recently we had equinox and as we are living on the northern hemisphere it was spring equinox. Traditionally this is the time when we go out and shoot a panorama for the World Wide Panorama (WWP). An event where we regularly contribute since 2005. The theme of the event was “paths”. Thinking about “paths” I finally thought of educational trails (Lehrpfad in German literally translates to educational path) which are very common in Germany. I did a search on educational trails in Frankfurt and found an educational trail of the faculty of geosciences/geography at the University of Frankfurt/M.
As I followed the trail I did several sphericals. The one I finally chose for the event shows a lovely spot near the old village center of Niederursel a district of Frankfurt/M.
