Swing Lens Panorama
Lens: Noblar T 29/4.5 Camera: Noblex 135U Photo Location: Various ISO: 100 Shutter Speed: 1/30s Aperture: F11 
Posted By: tuco, 09-18-2022, 11:20 AM

This small format panorama camera has a swing lens. The simple, fixed focus lens swings through its field of view on film loaded over a curved surface. It projects a 24x66mm image on 135 canister film. It has fast enough shutter speeds available that you can handhold one too.

I found it a fun, interesting and challenging experience to use one these cameras for sure.

I can see how that pano camera certainly had a place back in the film days.
I can also see how well a pano shot can support the main focal item in its environment.
Great photography.

Thanks. I find shooting with a pano camera (eg looking through the pano viewfinder) verses stitching photos together to create a pano a much different experience in what compositions I find. I tend to find shots like this when I can look through a wide viewfinder. When I stitch shots on my digital camera, I tend to do mostly landscape stuff. But that's just me.

Good observation! And I thank you for it.
Now that i am conscious of the matter, I might be able to use it with my non-pano-viewfinder camera.
