    Help, comments, advice appreciated...

    I'm thinking (about 95% sure) of using the GR21 for a very particular
    project. I'm making a body mounted machine that takes automatic
    portraits when it senses the emotion of thrill (working with a
    scientist in Dublin). I'm going to be studying people riding at
    faigrounds.

    Because of gyroscopic efects, the camera needs to be mounted as close
    to the face as possible. I'm going to be using the GR21 at it's
    minimum distance of 30cm. I know that with a 21mm lens there's going
    to be distortion, which might actually add to the quality of the
    images. But I'd like to be sure.

    HAS ANYONE TAKEN ANY PORTRAITS WITH A GR21 AT 30 cm?

    I could really do with seeing some examples of what to expect before I
    hand over my money for the thing. Can anyone take some pictures, scan
    and email them to me at ?

    Before anyone says it, I can't use a GR1V because I need the remote
    flash and remote release capabilities, and the 5cm difference in min
    focus is crucial.

    Thanks
