This picture is awesome!

Is there a cost to this event?

Is this a demonstration-only? Or, should participants bring their Z1 and laptop with the stitcher pre-installed?

Are there slides that you want to share?

Are you taking a video of the event?

Your photography really advanced with the Z1. I am very curious on your RAW development technique. The lighting is incredible.

Sorry for that, all written in Japanese.
