    are they still shooting 35mm?
     

  5. Who is they? the school photographers?

    To tell the truth I have no idea what they're using where you live or what other school photogs do in different areas. But here you can see school photog's with 30d's and d200's. Don't need much more than that really. I am unaware of any other lenses that take a panoramic picture in one shot without using any special equipment. Are they using medium format cameras? Don't really need that but I'm sure some places will use them for school photos. Actually this one guy who is fairly new to photography asked me my opinions on this one lens that he was goign to purchase. It was like a 50mm lens but it had a little black plastic piece on the top and the bottom of the glass. :mamoru: Don't remember what the lens was but basically all it did was add a border to the top and bottom of all pics giving it a "widescreen" look. It is some ebay lens so I'm sure it is a great buy! :bowdown:

    Yeah you can use 35mm and just cut (crop) the picture afterwards. Or if using digital, you can temporarily add a black strip across the top and bottom while you are processing your image so that you can get an idea of what your result will look like later after you cut off (crop) the excess when the prints arrive.

    I'd say they're shooting a really wide lens on a DSLR (10-22 anyone), then cropping it.

    This is what I see at our college for large group shots.

    I remember long ago when I took a class trip to washington d.c. we took a group shot in front of the capital building. The camera was some sort of panning camera. The photographer asked the last person of each row to run to the opposite side a few seconds after the the camera started moving.

    In the end result, there were 3-4 people in the same panoramic picture twice. I was not into photography back then, so I have no idea what camera it was. Definitely interesting at the time though lol.
