A couple of weeks ago I found an Wideboy Mark III being sold on Ebay, which rekindled my interest in that camera.
Wideboy is a swing lens medium format panoramic camera. A simple gadget that has to be hand cranked to take the picture. Being a simple design it would very easy for the initiated to study the general principles of rotational panoramic cameras and improve it if necessary.
I thank a lot the Ebay seller "Green Mountain Camera" who sold this particular item and allowed me to use these pictures. The weblink to this Ebay seller is http://www.ebay.com/usr/gmcamera
Check my old post on Wideboy/Horsley Cameras for some more information particularly on Mike Rignall who designed these cameras. Some extra information can still be found from
You can learn more on the construction details of Wideboy from this article which got published in the November issue of Amataeur Photography magazine in 2014
An operating manual for the Wideboy Camera( and other Horsley/Mike Rignall made cameras ) can be downladed from here.
