I have thought about this as well, but haven't ever found the time to try it. I would guess that it ought to work pretty well as long as the distance between the car and the subject doesn't vary. Do you have any examples that you can post? Have you tried doing this where everything was at the same distance from the camera (i.e. no foreground)?nwphoto wrote:I had been thinking about wide images of wide subjects for a long time, and had tried shooting Main Street from viewpoints on the other side. After some interesting failures I decided that what I needed was a LOT of very narrow images. But how to shoot those without wearing out the DSLR shutter, and myself?
Solution: video cameras happily shoot LOTS of images. So rotate an HD videocam to 'portrait' mode, mount it on my car window, and shoot while driving slowly along Main Street. Then write a program to extract, select every nth image and join them.
