Week 15 - Horizon 202

In week 15 I'm planning to use another Russian camera. I've used this one quite extensively since I bought it new 2 years ago. It's a swing lens panoramic camera taking in a horizontal field of view of about 120 degrees, and making 58mm x 24mm images on 35mm film. One of the reasons I like this camera is because you can't quite emulate it using a digital camera, as far as I know, there are not yet any digital cameras with curved sensors, though of course many incorporate various software panoramic functions.
I'll be putting in a roll of slightly out of date ISO1600 Fuji colour negative film with a view to using it to take some photos at the forthcoming Sharrow lantern festival.
