    Here's a shot I took yesterday at the local Earth Day celebrations
    taking place in my neighborhood park. The tree at each end of
    the image is the same tree. I'm the guy with the fat head.

    This was taken with a Corralis 360 degree 35mm film camera.
    I was told that what I have is a prototype of the camera that
    is sold under the name "Spinshot". The camera definately looks
    and behaves like it was built in someone's garage, but it's a lot
    of fun. I need to get it out more often.

    The camera is mounted on top of a handle, and there is a pull
    cord. When you release the cord the camera rotates and takes
    a photo that covers 400 to 500 degrees. It has a tripod mount,
    and it is possible to operate it from underneath the tripod, but
    that is about the only way to avoid having the photographer in
    the photo.

    There is only a single aperture and shutter speed (controlled by
    the rotation speed, so possibly variable?). Previously I've used
    it with C-41 BW for the exposure latitude. This is Tri-X
    developed in Diafine (compensating developer).

    Thats very cool, I've always been intruiged by these kind of shots it's strange trying to get your head around having 360 degrees laid out flat in front of you.
