Panoramic film formats (1)

In film based panoramic photography, a large number of formats exist.Both 35mm and medium format panoramic cameras offer a variety of aspect ratios.The common theme that underlies all these formats is the long, slender look of the slides, signifying the high length:width ratio of panoramic format.

One can very easily visually compare many of the available sizes from this Flickr photo.
