The Ipan panoramic camera

An ingenious design by Michael Lawton. The first prototype of the Ipan camera was made in 1973 and from 1979 to 1984 around 50 copies were made. Very few details are available in the internet as well as in printed media, till I discovered the excellent site of Mr. Olaf Matthes , himself being a great panoramic photographer and camera builder.

I'm very thankful to Mr. Matthes for kindly allowing to use this picture. To know more about this camera and other works of Olaf Matthes click here.
