These are photos made with a 100-year old Kodak Panoram 1 rotating lens panoramic camera. It makes four 6x18cm images on 120 roll film and has a simple single element lens. (I fixed the light leaks last Summer, sometimes they looked cool but most of the time they wrecked film.) Overall it's a PITA to use!

The following photos were made using a modern Noblex 612UX rotating lens camera that has an excellent lens. Ultimately I think making an interesting panoramic photo is quite challenging, I find most of them banal. In terms of sheer photo quality I know that stitching several digital frames is superior so it's easy to talk yourself out of shooting pans, they are a dead end.
