Come one, come all to Charleston, South Carolina, the location of our next IAPP conference planned for April 2016. There will be great food, spectacular views, and a chance to meet and network alongside veteran panoramic photographers. Take a step back in time and see the wonderful history and architecture that is classic Charleston. Whether it is photographing the historic buildings and parks of downtown or shooting panoramas at one of the many plantations teeming with wildlife, you are sure to come away with some fantastic photos. We will have workshops and presentations on new software and equipment. Also, be sure to bring your latest favorite panoramic prints to enter into the print exhibition. Check in at the IAPP website and Facebook pages for more details coming soon.
We have already started the early planning process for the next IAPP Conference in Charleston, SC. Stay tuned for more information.

Seitz 6×17, 160 megapixel Digital Panoramic Camera kit with D3 – 7,500 scan back (7.500 x 21.250 pixel images).
Cost £20,000 (+/- US $30,000) which represents 50% of new value.
Mint condition except minimal W&T on body frame. 90mm & 250mm Lens, Center Filter, 2 Spare Batteries & Chargers all in Waterproof Explorer Case. Lenses and Scan Back in absolute mint condition, no dust or anything. The D3 Scan back can be used on the Seitz Roundshot for 360 degree images.
Reason for sale is while the images are beautiful, there are 3 main reasons.
1. I want to take pictures ‘away from the car’, ie, you can-not take camping equipment with the Seitz equipment as it is just too heavy and bulky.
2. At 52 my knees seem to be getting ‘dodgy’ ie I can start feeling them getting painful if I carry heavy weights, especially up hill. (Weakest link in the chain as it were!).
3. I am getting more into workshops where Nikons etc are more suitable or relevant.
So when I look at the overall picture, I can find a smaller lighter camera, save my knees and not really loose any market in terms of print sales. Indeed the change would free me from the restriction of having just a 90mm and 250mm lens and allow me to shoot in more remote locations with a greater lens choice.
If serious, suggest communicate directly with me via email at email@example.com

Framed or mounted images will not be shown. The following specs are recommended (and may not be exceeded, due to space limitations):
- For regular panos from ﬁlm panoramic cameras and stitched panos from digital cameras, the maximum size is 44″ on the long side & 14″ on the short side, a 4:1 ratio. Prints must have a 2″ white border all around, so the actual maximum image area will be 40″ x 10″ on 44″ x 14″ paper. Other ratios may be used, but must be a minimum of a 2:1 ratio or greater, with the aforementioned maximums of 44″ on the long side and 14″ on the short side, including the margins.
