    I was just watching someone stream Kerbal Space Program and thought "nice mod" when I saw this pic :)

    Looks like a screenshot out of GTA:SA in a high rendering mod..

    Yes..that has been mentioned, the consensus is its a real photograph.

    It's Half Dome from Glacier Point Road. :)

    Though how they get half dome to appear as close as they have done I've no idea. @Tom / @Big G can tell us?

    Zoom lens..flattens out distance.

    No, a telephoto lens does. Zoom just refers to the fact that it's not a fixed focal length, you get some very ultrawide angle zooms.

    Assuming it isn't a render, then yes a telephoto lens will give that affect (similar to giant moons against skylines).

    Jeez I was going to change that to telephoto...but thought, no one will notice.
    Of course a zoomed in zoom lens is the same thing.

    Completely incorrect. You get ultra-wide zoom lenses that "when fully zoomed" will not give that affect. You need a lens of medium telephoto properties (which may, or may not be of a zoom nature) to compress the image - it is the focal length that determines this, not the lens mechanics.

    Some examples of wide angle zooms that would never compress the scene may be:

    - Sigma 12-24mm - example of why zoom does not equal telephoto
    - Canon 10-22mm
    - Nikon 12-24mm
    - Fujinon 10-24mm

    Zoom refers to variable nature of the lens. Zoom does not mean telephoto. It's a common misnomer to assume that a long focal length image is "zoomed in", almost all of the massive lenses you see at sporting events are not zoom lenses, rather fixed focal length telephoto lenses.

    Uh oh, nerd alert.
    A 50-300mm lens will flatten the same as a 300mm telephoto, when zoomed in.
    C'mon...your just being pedantic.
    Anyway zoom lenses give you this.

    It's not being pedantic, it's you being utterly wrong, and now you're comparing a 55-300mm zoom at a telephoto focal length (i.e. 300mm) to justify your bullshit. It's purely about the telephoto focal length, nothing to do with it being a zoom.

    When I said zoom lens, any reasonable person would take that as a telephoto powered one, not some specialised wide angle or fish eye zoom.

    Tell him about crop factors G. Let him explain how you're wrong there too.

    Did you look at that gif.
    Its a frickin zoom lens flattening the scene and pulling in the background as it zooms.

    It's the fucking focal length you chimp. The same effect could be achieved with multiple fixed focal length non-zoom telephoto lenses. That gif only demonstrates flattening of perspective when the focal length is long - that is, tele-fucking-photo. The zooming is irrelevant, and if anything, shows that the zoom nature does not matter until the telephoto focal lengths.

    I think you finally agreed with me there.

    I tbink you'll find when I wrote zoom lens 99.9% of sentient beings would know it was a lens zoomed in .
    Not the particular properties of a zoom lens even when not zoomed in.
