A behind the scenes look at the worlds largest photo: How the 320 Gigapixel London panorama was made, by LJ Rich at the BBC

I had some fun poking around the pano when it was first unveiled, looking for fun curiosa and crazy artifacts, and sure enough, everything from kitchen coops on balconies and image stitching mishaps on an Agmageddonian scale, its all there. But looking at the sheer scale of preparations makes one appreciate the hard work done by the 360cities team behind the pano. Some quick facts: 4 Canon 7D's were used, each with a 2x converter and a 400mm EF lens. Each camera took around 13.000 pictures, while mounted on a sturdy robotic Class Rodeon VR pano-head. The work was finished after only 4 days of shooting, and 3 months of stitching, done in Autopano Giga from Kolor.

Sigma 35mm f/1.4 DG HSM Lens Review at SLR Gear: There's a lot to like here: great results for sharpness, low chromatic aberration, and low distortion.

"Sigma's produced an excellent lens in the 35mm ƒ/1.4 DG HSM, with comparatively great performance at the ƒ/1.4 aperture setting, where the lens will no doubt be used for the majority of the time. There's a lot to like here: great results for sharpness, low chromatic aberration, and low distortion. There is some significant corner shading when used wide open, but coupled with the corner softness at the same aperture settings this contributes to an interesting look and subject isolation. If you're looking for corner-to-corner image sharpness you'll need to stop down. The Sigma 35mm ƒ/1.4 is definitely priced to compete, and designed to perform. . . . read more
