Panoramic conversion of medium format stereo camera
This is a nice example of panoramic conversion of a medium format 'Sputnik' stereocamera. This 6x12 panoramic camera was handmade by Claudio Bottari, an eminent camera maker from Italy. The lens is a Schneider Super Angulon 1:5,6/65 mm and the viewfinder is salvaged from a Russian Horizont 35mm panoramic camera. The steps of the fabrication process is given here.
Mr. Bottari made quite a few interesting cameras, panoramic back, pano head etc.The details can be found from his website http://www.claudiobottari.com/
I thank Mr. Bottari for his permission to use this pics. Thanks also to Olaf Matthes who first pointed this website to me.
