    My German is next to non-existent (it is German, right?) but the term "panoramic camera" is used several times. And, he is clearly describing the motion of a swinglens camera (such as a Noblex) during the interview. The early images (such as the nuns) are a dead giveaway of this type of machine, too.

    Then, at the end, the printer is clearly shown mounting a pano 35mm neg to the glass neg stage. However, I agree that this camera looks like an Xpan, and those negs don't have that swing look to them.

    Are the prints large? Yes. But we really can't see the quality of them in a web video, now can we?

    They're probably fine, though - after all, he's using TMY ... (kidding)

    Taking pictures is easy. Making photographs is hard.

    Yes, at the beginning, where he's jumping around in front of the camera, it's a swing lens camera.

    Xpan and Widelux

    The camera at the start is a Widelux. It is shown on his website.

    The camera in question IS an Xpan with a 30mm lens. The knob on top is the tightening screw that fits the hot shoe. Look here to see it...
