    You should take in account an Horizon panoramic camera. The older model is calles "Horizont" and is ful metal. Newer modesl are partly made from plastic, but they have more times available. I own the older model.

    I second Uwe's suggestion of the Horizont or Horizon. I have the Horizon 202 which I bought new 17 years ago.

    Good optics and an overall well thought out camera.

    I'm with you on the DaYi, except that I can't convince myself to add a 4x5 Crown to the kit.

    Another possibility if the goal is simply a long low image is to convert a Folding Pocket Kodak to 120 film. Its been done, but the result is effectively a crop from a shot taken with a normal lens.
    hi dan

    you are probably right about the film gate ..
    i have 6x6 and 6x8 graphic backs and they look like the film gate can just be removed
    .. ( too bad they can't ! )
    i your folder idea is the best ... 3a folders are cheap and plentiful ..
    and probably can be rigged to have a 120 roll instead of a 122

    Look for a Bronica ETR series camera with a 35W back. It is a 35mm panaramica back. Depending on the coverage a 40 or 50 mm lens. Depending on shooting style, a WLF or a prism finder and a handheld meter or a metered prism. No cropping needed. With some shopping around you are under the $300 mark and have an entry into expanding into MF as well as the basis of a very good 35mm system.

    Vivitar Ultra Wide and Slim. Plastic 24mm lens, really pretty ok considering. Frequently seen on eBay for between 4 and 25 bucks. I had lotsa fun with mine. Or any old fixed focus plastic lens cheapie with "panorama" crop mode. I made some 6" by 18" enlargements from stuff I shot 15 years ago with one: really quite a bit better than I expected. All from a European trip I had bought a Rollei 35 for. The Rollei died on the first day of the trip, the Agfa "panoramic plus" soldiered on. Plus pocketable and 35mm is cheap. Not all labs these days handle the old 35mm panorama mode, though, but many will.

    Horizon Perfekt is a nice camera, better built than you'd expect, and the lens is remarkably sharp. Being a swing lens camera, you can get wonky horizons if you don't hold level, but it has a built in bubble level to help with this. I really like mine.

    If I felt like spending a bit more money, I'd probably take a look at Gaoersi cameras.

    Darin, it took me a while to find this link -- too many bookmarks and this one not well identified -- but here's a maker of quite inexpensive rotational panoramic cameras. Their site is up but I'm not sure they're still making and selling cameras.

    Inexpensive because not motorized. Hand cranked, I expect using one well takes practice.

    Are you sure this was not posted on April 1?

    I have a simple Panoramic camera, a Kodak Panoram 1. It works.

    Horsley Camera is real. One of their cameras was featured in Amateur Photographer (UK magazine) a few years ago.
