    this is turning into a big conspiracy to make me build more cameras -- which is a good thing.

    I love the distortion & vignetting
    So how about a 105, 80 or even 75mm lens off an old folder?

    Tessars tend to break off too abruptly, but a triplet might just be the thing. "Perfection" could be an old 65mm Angulon, but I understand you're not after perfection?

    maybe I have something useable. I'll have a look in the morning.

    Darkroom Experimenter , I had been seen a russian camera at internet which takes 72 shots per 35mm roll. I think you need a this kind of stuff.
    May be you can squeez a panaroma in to 18 x 24 mm size negative.
    I advise you to put a kodachrome film in to the machine because they are the strongest to heat , humidify and time , if i m not wrong.
    Anyone knows how to squeze a panorama in to very narrow area ?
    I need a this kind of solution also

    not after perfection...but I think I should rise somewhat above my usual level of simplicity if so many people are going to spend time on this

    if you have a spare lens that could work -- that would be excellent!

    I think this could be a good excuse to make a couple different types of cameras I've been considering for a while.

    I normally make rotating panoramic cameras & simple ones with insanely wide lenses. I've never made multiple-lens 360 panoramic cameras (film wrapped around a cylinder with multiple lenses creating the 360 degree view)...and this might be a good time to start

    Mustafa - I had thought of doing something like that for fun...small format on 35mm

    hmmm...the cheap 35mm "panoramics" just used part of the film...perhaps you could get 72 panoramic images simply by masking differently and using the upper & lower halves of the 24x36mm frame instead of justing wasting the unused area?

    Mustafa, I think what you are looking for is an anamorphic cinema lens!

    those are the ones that are made to shoot wide-screen on 35mm film, sideways. They do this by compressing the horizontal, and then the movie is projected with another anamorphic lens restoring the correct proportions.

    Ole - Is there a way to accomplish that anamorph , someone told me to use two cylinderical lenses or i read that panavision started to lens business with inventing triangular prisms for cinema.
    Is it a fantasy for DIY people or is there a way to do it ?

    Darkroom Experimenter - You are right , you can may be make first shot to the top of film than when roll finishes , you scroll it back and start again with taking from the bottom part , it is less complicated.
    But it increase the chance of losing the camera in mail. 72 different people ...
    I think developing a excellent camera system and publish its plans at internet than to ask the people to build and make 36 shots per people is more interesting.

    interesting ideas...you're right...sending film through twice is much simpler

    Great idea about uploading plans & having everyone make one....perhaps a document for people to print out & use as a template for making a camera out of cardboard could work too

    I just finished developing a single frame of 35mm film for one of my smaller cameras...I was thinking---why do this in "serial" fashion? I can just make 25 single frame cameras and we all shoot at the same time...much faster

    I would be interested in this too.

    Another panoramic format I have thought about using in the past is 25 x 60mm on 120 film. Should get about 30 images on a roll.
