The image will turn gray when the images are aligned. Camera is lensless using a pinhole for film exposure and is made by Mottweiler Photographic of Santa Fe, N. Sell one like this. There were also a number of American and foreign military panoramic cameras manufactured that are not included in this text. A detailed mathematical description of various map projection functions including cylindrical and spherical projections. I wonder if it is scratch prone when dry, or only when wet? The image should be square and accurately centered in the frame so that the origin of the following polar to rectangular conversion step will be correctly centered. Most of the cameras listed produce an image of at least degrees wide and many take a picture of degrees, a full circle.

Seller assumes all responsibility for this listing. Obviously, there were other panoramic cameras patented and made by their inventors that are not included in this list. Cannon, a Canadian, patented a simple cycloramic camera fitted with a lens of fixed focus. Marcellus of Philadelphia, which was a degree slit roll film camera. Film may be loaded in daylight and unloaded in daylight after the complete roll is used. These photographs are a simulation of a degree field of view fisheye lens that covers all possible viewing angles 4 pi steradians.

Keep in mind that film speed did not really take off until the ‘s, forty years after the Cirkut went out of production. In fact, my first published works manifesting just such a vision are three posters of panoramas and maps of Gettysburg and Antietam.

The film traveled between two rollers while the camera was turned by hand on the optical center of filmm lens and could accomplish a degree picture. The Hulcherama camera uses standard or roll film. I have a few choices: It becomes more of a question of which lenses might work well with the gears that you were lucky enough to get with the camera.

For additional information, see the Global Shipping Program terms and conditions – opens in a new window or tab. Dan – I’ve used Cirkuts enough to know how, but never have become proficient, so a more experienced Cirkut shooter may disagree with some of my ideas.


Many inventors patented their device with the intention of getting wealthy. Dan – Excellent news that aerial film is alive and well. I can’t imagine a Cirkut print can be quite as sharp as a print from a sheet film camera, but to me this print looked quite good.

If an equivalent photograph were to be taken with a conventional scanning panoramic camera using format film, it would require using a lens with an 11 mm focal length. Sign in for more lists. Is it panoraamic it? Mangin’s Perigraphs Instantane, made in Paris by Bardon, made a degree sweep with a special lens that gave a long strip photograph.

Hulcuerama Kodak or Ilford rep might give you an idea on the future availability of aerial film. You must log in or sign up to reply here. My head is spinning from all the Cirkut talk – on this forum, over on APUG, plus Jim and I have exchanged a couple of emails, where we were discussing sharpness in Cirkut prints.

This is because the vertical axis is now using an camefa theta mapping instead of the desired f tan theta mapping of hulchreama panoramic camera.

Panoramic Photography with Fisheye Lenses

It uses a volt battery to operate the motor and the rate of rotation can be varied from 1 to seconds per revolution. The contrast is a bit high, as you can see in the loss of the shadow detail on the mine barn; but still, it’s damn good!

Delivery time is estimated using our proprietary method which is based on the buyer’s proximity to the item location, the shipping service selected, the seller’s shipping history, and other factors. What remains is the revolution and evolution of the oeuvre in the directions of the compass you see herein It was all metal construction and powered by batteries.

As a student in the School of Architecture at the University of Minnesota, one often began a project by going pnoramic to a hypothetical building site with a 35mm camera and taking a series of sequential snapshots.


A photographer named Braun took Alpine panoramas using this czmera and was praised for the “fine technical qualities, cloud and aerial effects. Film is the first thing to check on, and I don’t have up-to-date information. Up to 18″ x 48” picture was available. Most of the cameras listed produce an image of at least degrees wide and many take a picture of degrees, a full circle.

This feature was dropped in later models; whether because it didn’t work or wasn’t considered needed, I don’t know. If Michael and Paula are able to get the “new Azo” deal going, they may have it available in roll paper, so you could use it for Cirkut.

What do you use for film? Film was curved on the cylinder while pxnoramic lens and prism unit was rotated by clockwork to produce a panoramic image. More correctly, the context itself becomes subject matter……….

It used a 4″ film with degree field of view and 12″ long exposure.

Anybody use a Cirkut?

See all condition definitions – opens in a new window or tab. The primary goal of this project was to develop a method of producing extreme wide panorxmic panoramic hulcheramma with a compact hand held camera. The slit camera is battery powered and made by Charles A. So I’m thinking a Cirkut can take a sharp-enough picture, but my few attempts haven’t been as sharp as they should be.

The rotating slit drum is battery powered and the camera is manufactured by Kamera Werke, Noble, Dresden, Germany. Right up there with rapid access X-ray films.

This camera was capable of making a degree picture on 6″ roll film. Fiddling canera the governor adjustment might get it there.

Please examine the photographs.
