    Of course, this might add to the cachet

    Film flatness and focusing accuracy has been a concern for me, which had kept me from doing it for years. Until one day when I picked up a used bulk film loader from a camera swap meet with some film left in it. I opened the loader and took the remaining film out. The remaining film was in a unknown condition anyway so I wasted it. I found something about the unused film. The film was naturally curled or rolled in the direction of the the film's length. But I found that it was completely flat on the vertical direction. This was not what I usually saw on a processed film that curls in both directions. This prompted me to cut a stripe of it and put it in the camera and closed the back. Then I had the shutter fired in B to look at the film from the front side through the opened shutter. The film looked very flat to me. I could not imagine that there would be a focusing problem. Of course I can say that all 35 mm long roll films will be like that. I will need to investigate it.

    The reason I want to shoot panorama with 35 mm films is because I have a lot of 35 mm 100 ft long roll films. I will never finish shooting them through my 35 mm cameras. I will shoot 46 mm films on my Pentax 67-ii too. I have quite some 46 mm films left from a student portrait job with a Camerz camera. I have some 70 mm partial rolls too. That I can't use in my P67-ii though.
