    Selecting singlet from schott catalog and DIY horizon perfekt body

    Horizon Perfekt is the most beatiful camera I have ever seen , its like a russian submarine
    But I havent got even a single dollar to buy it or reference books.
    I have knowledge about the plastics and I can produce a cheap mold and produce the body from cheap polyester and coat with polyurethane like a soldier shoe.
    But problem is to put a glass in front of 35mm film.
    Lens will not rotate , it will be a singlet.
    I dont know anything about selecting diameter and focal lenght of a lens.
    Can you help me to select from schott catalog ?
    I want a 70 x 24 mm negative .

    Best ,

    To build a repllica of a rotating-lens panoramic camera with a non-rotating lens seems to be to be a waste of time. It is simply not possible to get anything resembling a sharp image (nor even anything resembling an image) out of a singlet over 24x70mm panorama, even WITH rotation!

    Perhaps you should rather look at these English eccentrics, who make simple cheap rotating-lens cameras with some very ingenious simplifications?
