I'm not talking about the range of the lens, of bloody course a wide angle can reveal more of the scene, but it can't suddenly reveal the back of your shoulder or foot that a normal lens couldn't. That is what is being proposed here. A magical lens that you can aim at someone and it can reveal their backside. yeah.

What? A convex lens (fisheye) will absolutely reveal more than a normal mirror. A large convex can reveal almost up to 180 degrees, while a normal mirror is much more limited.

This picture might also been taken slightly from above with a shutter on timer and therefor the camera is "hidden" and the "observer" without the suit is exposed.

This qoute states there were only 2 guys roaming around on the moon, but the answer were looking for now is... How come the guy in the reflection looks out of place?
If we can't manage to give a logical reason for the '2nd' man then we could say this was staged.

Jack's reflection is distorted in Gene's helmet. By looking at his shadow it can be seen that Jack is aiming his camera toward Gene.
The camera can be removed from the chest mount.

I just have 1 question for those who say the photo was taken by the astronaut... How in God's name can his shadow point in 1 direction, but his body in another? That's not possible, your shadow on Earth "replicates" your outline . . . Am I missing something here?? Please explain to me how that is possible, without a 2nd light source??
(OMG, I 'm going to get flamed again in a number of days )
The light source has to come from the left to generate that image, yet it seems it was at an angle from the left to produce a shadow showing his "back pack"....
I don't know anymore, I'm confused... Someone PLEASE explain this to me.
