The Gakken panoramic conversion
The Gakken offers many good features as a candidate for panoramic conversion. Being a DIY camera, you can do quite some modifications during the assembly process itself. Unlike the Nimslo, the material of construction is completely plastic. This spares the craftsman from the hard metal milling works. The film path is 72 mm. long. Thus when used with a suitable medium/large format lens it gives an 1:3 aspect ratio panoramic.
Moominsean did an excellent job in converting the Gakken with a medium format lens. For more details visit his blog .
