    I don't see a market for that one. Perhaps 20 a year?

    I have another product idea even if it is completely off topic:
    What about a basic "small" 8x10 enlarger which fits on a desk with normal room height and allows a 20x24 enlargement with a 240mm lens? All those used Laborators etc. are huge monsters which do not fit in most darkrooms. I think that could have a potential market.

    best

    Maybe scratch that last bit with the news today about Calumet. They would have been the obvious rental house for a camera like this. Of course there are others, but with Calumet, you had a network of rental houses in various cities.

    Hi Mirko,
    Yes: I certainly would be interested. But there is a limit to my budget as well.
    I would like to see the possibility to choose between different angles of panorama, not only 360 degrees.
    Best if one could adjust manually, otherwise increments with 30 degrees from from 60 up to 360 degrees would be nice.

    Furthermore, it would be nice if the lens could be interchangeable. This would make the camera itself less expensive. But choosing what type of lens mount is a whole other story. Maybe interchangeable as well??

    Thanks,

    All the features asked for in this thread have already been on the market in existing, modern cameras. The only outstanding feature of the "Adorama" would be that it would be new off the shelf.

    Offering different lens mounts as such should not be a problem, but optical problems might already arise at this stage. At least with the urge to change focal lengths. That would necessitate a basically different design.

    What about PanADOX?

    I probably would not have a use for such a camera. I'm happy that Adox is looking into new film camera development, though, and hope they can create a camera that will be a profitable item for them.

    There have been so many posts that I hope to catch all questions with this answer:

    1) The camera does not exist yet, the next step will be to build a prototype.
    2) The price depends on the current cost for materials and quantities. We target a price below 3.000 EUR without tax.
    3) 35mm lenses are fine to use because of the slot image (you don´t need an image circle with full coverage). Other mounts than Nikon are possible but will be a custom modification with a price tag to it.
    4) The format is ADJUSTABLE in about 5° increments. We might even allow self-programming via a PC. This all depends on the cameras success. This is a 2014 technology product.
    Depending on the settings formats of e.g. 6x9, 6x12, 6x17, 6x24 etc. can be achived.
    5) The times are adjustable as well

    Hi Mirko,
    I believe this has the makings of a beautiful panoramic camera. I'm very interested.
    Unfortunately, a price range close to € 3.000 EUR is a lot more than I can afford.
    But if you need someone to test the camera in the field, you're more than welcome.

    Just a suggestion, maybe put a Canon EF mount on it by default? EF is an almost 'universal acceptor', then you can mount any of Nikon, Pentax, M42, Leica R lenses. The more available lenses the more popular it might be. With a Nikon mount you can only really mount Nikon lenses (and MF goes with everything of course).
    An awful lot of electrons were terribly inconvenienced in the making of this post.

    f/64 and be there.
