    Nah, the astronauts already knew what their boots looked like. The widest lens that was used on the Moon was the Hasselblad SWC with the 36mm Biogon lens.
    Warning!! Handling a Hasselblad can be harmful to your financial well being!

    Nothing beats a great piece of glass!

    I leave the digital work for the urologists and proctologists.

    ". This series of lenses were originally developed for special scientific and industrial use where wider-than-180° picture coverage is required in surveillance work, photographing the interiors of pipes, boilers, conduits, cylinder bores and other constricted areas. But in applications such as advertising and commercial photography they are used extensively for dramatic effects"

    Well my memory was a "bit" off but its essentially the same idea.

    I remember going to a Nikon show at Detroit Camera in 1972 and seeing one of these. Quite the lens, but very specialized.

    You shoot your shoots? I guess it's better than shooting your shorts.
    I do use a digital device in my photographic pursuits when necessary.
    When someone rags on me for using film, I use a middle digit, upraised.

    Well if I included my knees in the photographs, then it would only be the tops of the knees. Hence I would be shooting my high knees!

    Yeah, nobody wants to shoot their shorts-very distressing.

    A lens like this would be as much use to me as as an ash tray on a motor bike.
