I think this is the most likely place to start a dedicated forum, the interest generated by Jim and any other potential/curious posters will keep the discussion alive. IAPP's forum has failed to do that and the other forums started since the demise of the original panoramic forum have bombed too. The other forums allow digital which in current times have swamped film based technologies.
This site is only getting bigger so further specialisation makes sense.
I'd like to see more discussion of anything panoramic, Roundshot, Alpa Rotocamera, Widelux, Noblex, Hulcherama.........
