Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
The original price of panoramic cameras put them out of the scope of many professionals and amateurs would find it impossible to justify such a purchase for the occasional use. With the digital revolution it is now possible to purchase panoramic cameras at reasonable prices. This book therefore acts as an excellent introduction to Panoramic Photography. Frost covers all the main cameras by type and explains the relative advantages of each type and each camera model.

Frost gives plenty of detail of the issues and techniques of panoramic photography including advice on how to get the best from each camera type. I would have liked more about composition (14 pages) because vision is the hardest part in photography and the unusual aspect ratio of panoramic photography requires a new way of looking for the best picture. That is not to imply the 14 pages are inadequate, they are indeed adequate, but that is my issue more pages would have been welcome.

Metering and filters are dealt with well.

There are some stunning photos too, all the more to get you out there with your camera.

Normally I do not like Lee Frost's books but on this occasion I was very pleasantly surprised!

Warning, this is not a book for digital photographers, they need to look elsewhere!

The images in this book are excellent.

However the book is based on Lee's experience of using three models of film camera, making it limited in scope for anyone approaching the subject for the first time. The amount of space dedicated to composition is limited and could have been expanded by removing the sections on exposure, depth of field and reducing the amount of on filters, which again concentrate on the three cameras he uses. This is hardly a book that will attract someone just staring in photography and I would imagine that most readers already know how aperture affects depth of field!

The subject of using digital cameras occupies only a small part of the book and makes no mention of how the camera should be set up around the nodal point of the lens!

In all a disappointment. The images cannot be faulted but anyone wanting to produce panoramas from a standard film or digital camera would be better looking elsewhere, an hour on the internet will prove more rewarding.
