Hasselblad lens? Ha! I wish! :-) Technically I believe the lens hasthe Zeiss name on it, but it's still a commodity point and shoot (and an aging 4MPixel one at that).

Cheers, John.

Met a man some time ago with a analog Hasselblad. There was a bubble lever built in, making it possible to get the horizon 100% correct. His lens also had no distorsion, at the wide end anyhow.

Personally I have to do lens correction in PS. Anyhow, my point is you've got a straight horizon and straight verticals at the right end in the picture. Yes even four megapixels are mostly much, much more than you need

That's cool. Do you play in a band? Your work always goes to show that it's not the camera that makes the photo rather the person behind it.
Thanks Mark!

The image was stitched together from 4 frames using autostitch, so I took care when stitching to get the horizon straight and level: it's one of my pet hates when it isn't, particulary as I never seem to be able to hold the camera straight, and always tilt in the same direction :O

Ideal, I play keyboards in a cover band, we do weddings, corporate events, parties etc, and as you say it's good fun.
