My mistake as a newbie to jump in with both feet and arbitrarily pick 2.5:1. It seemed somehow kind of "seat of the pants" to me and I am ignorant of arguments that were previous. It still seems kind of seat of pants but I rarely stick by any rule. Certainly a 22X48" picture made by a George Laurencian camera would unquestionably be a "panorama". Let's hope folks wouldn't be silly enough to not come to the forum over semantics. A panorama is a panorama. I suppose you could put a 6 inch lens on the Laurence camera and put circular text an inch away from the lens and fill the film up with it. Then it would be a 22X48" picture of text. I could do the same with the Cirkut camera and make a negative 80" long of text. It wouldn't be a panorama. Just me but it seems a bit silly to banter over. I'll see if Sean wants to change the forum to just the Header with no other descriptors.
