    Google street view type of photography. Anyone done this?

    I'm thinking about starting a project that will involve photos of many locations. I thought it might be cool to allow the user to navigate through the photos in a manner similar to google street view. My project would not be nearly as in-depth and detailed, and would use using far less images...

    Stocking suffers? Making a list.

    Well I often consider major photography equipment purchases to be a very personal decision, weather its a tripod or a lens, what works for you might not be so great for me.

    Rear curtain sync on a TLR? Timer? converter?

    So the question... Is there any (easy)way to make a flash rear-curtain sync with my Yashica TLR, or any film camera that does not offer rear curtain, for that matter? For bulb exposures I could try using a stopwatch and manually triggering the strobe before closing the shutter, but that is a...
