    How do you print panoramic negatives?

    I was thinking about building a panoramic camera of the rotating type that would take roll film and be able to make 360 degree panoramas on 120 film. I have it all designed but then I realized that I would have no way to print the negatives.

    I understand that some panoramic cameras don't us the rotating design and are just wide-angle lenses afterall.

    In any case, how do you print panoramic negatives?
    f/22 and be there.

    you would print it as any other negative. You will probably have to make a negative carrier from matt board and be sure you have a lens that will cover the size. there are a few carriers for some enlargers, but they are hard to find.

    depending on the size you also could use a glass 4x5 negative carrier.

    I shoot 6x17, and print with a 10x8 enlarger. I could print 6x24 max, anything larger would need a custom enlarger.

    I had Steve Grimes machine a 6 X 12 opening in one of my Omega 6 X 6 negative carriers. It works fine.

    I've been considering the same problem for a different style of shooting, ending up with a single negative 3, 4, or even 5 frames wide that I'd want to print as one piece. 2 1/4 x 14" pushes me well past a 4x5 for the "small ones", even an 8x10 enlarger would be too small for the large ones.

    I use a durst 1200 and made a mask with a 6x12 opening by adjusting a 6x9 mask with a little iron saw.

    I'd actually like to enlarge some, maybe 4x.

    Sadly I end up scanning my 6x17 images. I have an Omega 5x7 enlarger chassis, but no working light source for it. Maybe someday I'll get a good color head for it.

    120 x 4 will look wonderful, but you can proof & file with glass contacts.

    I do have a flat bed scanner for web publication, bad i know.
