  1. Wonder how this works? As any photographer knows the wider angle the lens the large something will appear. A telephoto lens is used to bring things in closer and to compress. Surely they accounted for this. I’m just curious as to how.

  3. This is interesting. Does this account to distortions on some parts of the photograph? What is the percent error with regards to the measurements?
