Fionnphort Panorama

Fionnphort, Isle of Mull, Scotland

A couple of years ago I stayed on Iona for a couple of nights to get out early looking for Corncrake. I didn't get any luck with the Corncrakes (heard loads, saw a few deep in the iris beds) but had fun with the scenary. The above is a panorama is looking at Fionnphort at 05:55 on 25 May 2010 (click to view larger).

For the technical minded, it is created from 16 frames with my Canon 1D mkIIN, 500mm and 1.4x, resulting in a 143 megapixel image (30,770 x 4,640 pixels) or a 3.0 x 0.5 meter print!

You can see some of the detail by navigating around the Zoomify version of the image below (requires Flash).

SOLD: Canon 400mm f5.6L USM

Canon 400mm f5.6L USM - SOLD

Excellent condition, all glass is clean and free from damage. The body is almost completely unmarked - there is a light scratch on the tripod collar and the foot is lightly scuffed from attachment to triopds.

The lens was purchased new in 2005 from Park Cameras and has a date code of UT (2005).

The sale includes: Original box, lens, caps, case (unused) and Lenscoat hoodie (neoprene lens cap that slips over the lens hood). I will also include a home made neoprene cover - not as nice as a lenscoat but cost me nothing.
