    Spiratone made something like this in the 1970s and 1980s -- the Portagon. And it was A LOT cheaper than $100. I think I paid something like $20.

    You probably could do just as well with the lens from a magnifying glass and a piece of PVC pipe. Again, a lot less than $100.

    Check out the PlungerCam at:

    for a d.i.y. version of the same idea.
    Film is cheap. Opportunities are priceless.

    Ah, but the Spiratone Portragon didn't have swings, tilts, rise, fall and shift.
