Going to shoot carnival pictures with two photographic systems as different as the 35mm and panorama at the same time, is asking for trouble.

Because you end up walking, running, fighting for space in a crowd for days like a photographic Christmas tree, with cameras hanging from all over.

And also because of the dynamics and state of mind of shooting with the regular 35 mm (3:2 format) are so much different from panorama, which approaches the 22:9 proportion.

35% wider than the new TV screens 16:9 format.

Sort of playing the saxophone and the guitar at the same time, almost .

But panorama is only marginal here, for a lot more Carnival photos, please see the Carnival Section
