Let me be the first to bitch. I use a Linhof 612. So at 2:1 this means I'm still homeless? What autocrat came up with 2.5:1?

OK I'm vented. I still sent in this years subscription.

You belong to medium format. What makes you think your camera is panoramic?

So if I get a new lense does that mean I Xpand?

It must be designed to avoid people like me - who uses a 35W back on a Bronica ETRS: 24x54mm negative size = 2.25:1.

Almost made it.

But I'll get my own back by taping half a roll of 120 FP4+ in my 30x40cm camera and get a 6x40cm panorama!

Almost made it.

Me too, Horizon 202, 24x58 mm => 2.41:1.

For me aspect ratio has a lot to do with where you started. If you started with 6x6 then even 6x9 or 35mm can look panoramic to your eyes. I started at the other end doing 8:1 panoramics with Cirkut cameras. Coming from that extreme 6x17 doesn't look very panoramic to me.

When I shoot 617 I always crop a bit off the top to stretch the format a bit, I like a 4:1 minimum.

Clayton, the horizon 'round here is never that flat.

Of the 100+ shots I've made with the 35W back, more than half were vertical...

Okay, enough about your cameras.

Let's talk about the xpan.

(just kidding.) (not really.)

Clay, Ole, The camera has its own feel to it. Yes as a pano it does not add up. But as a hand held street walking fast handling camera it is remarkable! Pop in film set exposure and go. The larger cameras, Sure they are great, I have a pano back for my LF (well 4x5) also but it is nice to run and gun at times and this guy makes it really easy.

Ole, it's the same here, hills everywhere and I've never done a single vertical panorama.

I'm kind of wanting to fashion a panoramic pinhole camera...24mmx80mm. I'd count, right? ;)

True, until you start climbing high peaks, loading Kodachrome 25 in it, etc.
