A 360° Panoramic Camera

The idea behind this project was to make a 360° Panoramic Camera as cheap and simple as possible. I enjoy making things that way. The material is PVC plastic in sheets, tubes and rods. The film advances behind a slit as the camera rotates. A full panoramic image without splices is produced in one shot. It uses 120 film commonly used in medium format cameras. The film strip is 60 mm wide. The camera was made in 1988, long before people started to stitch together digital images but almost 100 years after the 360° camera was invented. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Arthur_Clarence_Pillsbury
