    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?

    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!

    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.

    (just kidding.) (not really.)
