Panorax Zi panoramic camera

The Japanese Panorax Zi panoramic camera offers an unusual design. With a 360 degree horizontal coverage it was designed by Hiroshi Mito in 1954. It uses 35 mm film, though variants using other smaller and larger film formats were reported to exist.

This is a rare camera and the price varied around ten grands, the last time I saw in this ebay offer.

For a summary of features of Panorax (and many other pano cameras)visit the site of Massimo Bertacchi .
