OK...who wants to shoot my homemade panoramic camera?

I'm going to make a simple 35mm panoramic camera and would like to send it around like the other projects in this thread.

This will be a 35mm camera with a very simple homemade shutter. The format will be either 24x72mm or 24x90mm ( still tinkering )...so it'll take approximately 11-17 images per roll

anybody interested?

I would like very much to try it and would be happy to see it and its' results. What size lens do you imagine it would handle?

I like to use the lens from disposable cameras, but I'll be looking through my lens box to see if there's anything that might be more fun to use

I stop them down to about f/22

.....they can cover 6x6cm nicely and just barely cover 6x9cm, although you only see brighter objects at the edges at 6x9

I love the distortion & vignetting

I am sure you will want a photo of New Mexico, so send it over.

I was in New Mexico last year and, ya know, I just didn't take enough photos there

Hell, I'm in. Pano and Canyon De Chelly were made for each other.

Might as well include a photo or two from the left coast redwoods! It would just have to be able to take long exposures...possibly in a vertical format.

The kind of shutter I usually make either be used as a normal daylight exposure or as a bulb exposure

I might put a bubble level on it -- but it'll be set for horiz format....maybe I can add one for vertical depending on how many I have lying around

I should probably post some test shots so you'll have an idea of what to expect re: distortion, vignetting, blurry edges, etc

I would be glad to use my 45, my 9mm or my 22. Do you want to stand beside the camera or behind it when I shoot? :D

Seriously, if you come to Rochester, I would enjoy shooting with you, not at you.

sounds like a fun way to make a pinhole camera

I'd like to join in this, if it happens.

It'll be probably early spring when the camera starts wandering off into the world.

I'd definitely be interested.

Please add me to the list! Sounds like fun.

uh oh...I might have to make TWO cameras now

Or add a nice HOWTO on changing the film if there's more people than frames. :D

And on that subject: if it is already going to make the jump across the ocean to Ole, then I might as well join in. Sounds like fun!

I expect you will need an Isle of Wight image so add me to the list!

Can I play? I think you might need to make three cameras.
