FT-2 on a tripod

5 Frames with an FT-2 Soviet Swing Lens Camera – By Daniel Smith

I find the experience of taking a panoramic photo really satisfying; they are just so immersive. Until recently, this has mostly been accomplished with a digital camera. The only analog panorama photos I had experienced were those from point and shoot cameras that came equipped with a panoramic mode, in which a mask can be applied to the viewfinder and film plane that would crop a panoramic image into a standard 35mm negative frame. Of course the problem with panoramic point and shoot cameras is that the image quality from such a small negative is often pretty terrible.
