An interactive panorama of the Eclectic Visions show is at: or via the link on the Photos page.

For the technically minded - It's taken with 4 shots, 90° apart, Nikon f800e with an 10.5mm shaved fisheye lens on a Nodal Ninja pano head. Each shot taken 5 times with shutter speeds 1/30-1/500 Sec. at f8 and merged to HDR in Photomatix Pro. Stitched in PTGui Pro and coded in KRPano.

No apologies needed Doug - that is what happens when I post at 3 AM  ;-) and thanks so much for getting links to Uri's awesome 360 tour of the show up and easy to access!

Thanks, Doug. I fixed it, except the only thing on that page is an invitation to the opening...

I think I ought to revert to the old link. Your thoughts?

To Kim: Yes you can share but Facebook will not display the interactive panoramas on its own pages (I have to make some changes to the way I publish them). Sharing a link to the panorama on my web site will work fine. For the Eclectic Visions pano it's:

for my entire web site:

Thanks for all the work to do this Uri. I really enjoyed the 'tour'.

The lens is a full 180° so I get a complete sphere. I could get away with 3 shots 120° apart, but prefer more overlap. One more shot may sometimes be necessary to cover the nadir. In this instance I just faked it and covered the nadir with a logo and © notice. 
The 'shaved' designation means that I removed the sunshade from the lens (carefully, with a hand saw on the $1000 lens, not for the faint of heart) in order to get a full circle on an FX, full-frame camera sensor.

This group will infuse some new energy and direction into the Club. Feedback from club members indicates that people would like more interactive educational activities (workshops, classes, small field trips etc.) and maybe a schedule of educational opportunities ahead of time so that people can plan to attend.

The Victoria Camera Club has an external speaker every month and are willing to share their list of speakers so we can participate, at a cost of $5 a person. The club has funds to cover this at the moment. This would require using the  Zoom format (which has worked so well during this Pandemic).

Club meetings will resume in October, giving this new group time to work out their ideas for new directions.

Some people are cautious about in person meetings (because of health issues) and others are ready and able to jump back in. Maybe in person meetings and Zoom meetings can co-exist. Something to talk about.

Maureen has offered to look into a monthly newsletter with, possibly, more coverage than the website offers such as emails, using facebook etc.

Avril would like to see an improved use of the website: more posts, more comments, more helpful critiquing. We might need a refresher course to remind us how to give constructive feedback.

Doug has a show about Covid in September at the library -  in the Community Program Room. He will give a talk on September 7th at Noon. This will be previously unseen material, not the triptychs we have seen on the website.

Photosynthesis has a virtual show coming up, starting on August 31st. Some club members also belong to this photography group.

There is no theme yet for the photography challenge in October but when that is decided it will be communicated to everyone.
