    Seitz Roundshot 35/35?

    Anyone have info on the Seitz Roundshot 35/35? I'm curious about this camera, and can't find any info online about shutter speeds, apertures, etc.

    Is it worth holding out for a 120 Roundshot instead?

    DId you see the close up pictures of this one? http://webcache.googleusercontent.co...&ct=clnk&gl=us

    For $2400, I'll bet not many folks have these laying around

    SEITZ ROUNDSHOT 35/35 ROTATING PANORAMIC CAMERA. A SUPERB PIECE OF SWISS ENGINEERING THAT USES 35MM FILM AND PRODUCES PANORAMIC NEGS OR TRANNIES OF VARYING LENGTH AND DEGREE OF ROTATION.
    THE CAMERA HAS A BUILT IN 35MM LENS THAT PRODUCES NEGATIVE OR TRANSPARENCY THAT IS 220MM LONG FOR A 360 DEGREE PANORAMA.
    THE ELECTRIC MOTOR IN THE BASE ROTATES THE CAMERA FOR AS LONG AS THE SHUTTER RELEASE CABLE IS PRESSED . THE SCENE TO BE TAKEN IS VIEWED THROUGH THE TAKING LENS AS YOU ROTATE THE CAMERA BY HAND BEFORE MAKING THE EXPOSURE.THE CAMERA HAS EFFECTIVE SHUTTER SPEEDS OF 15 SECONDS THROUGH TO 1000TH OF A SECOND AND APERTURE RANGE OF F2.8 TO F22
    THIS CAMERA PRODUCES GREAT RESULTS THAT CAN BE GREATLY ENLARGED
    Is it worth holding out for the 120?? No you need to hold out for the large format 5 inch one!

    I did indeed see that (and the ridiculous price too!). Too bad you can't enlarge the photos and read the settings on the unit.

    I have a picture of a Vancouver Canucks NHL game made on a Seitz Roundshot camera - a Vancouver BC photographer named Kent Kallberg did it. I don't know the guy, it was just a promotional print and I grabbed it, since I'm a fan of panoramic.

    kallbertstudios.com, if it's any help.

    Jeff:
    I have both a Roundshot 120 and a 5 inch Roundshot (!). If you have any questions, don't hesitate to ask. I have used the 35mm Roundshot as well - and in my humble opinion, the 120VR is a much better camera - particularly if you use Mamiya 645 lenses. Best - Ed

    5" roundshot - now that would be nice! Thanks - this helps. I think I'm going to hold out for a 120 version.

    there are three 5 inch versions 65mm and 90mm(early and newest) and a supercamera called multilens cam. 65mm film height is 11cm versus 6cm on the 65/70/220 if 70mm film was used. i dont know if there is anyone left who cam print directly 5 inch films using a roundshot enlarger. i think 50cm was the height-limit, right? brad lapaine has such an enlarger.
