I have been working with panoramic photography for about six years. All the pictures seen here were taken with a 35mm Widelux camera. The F5 model I use is quite old but is basically the same as the F8 version currently available. The camera movement rotates a 26mm lens to produce a 140 degree panorama. I then combine two or more images to form a panorama as wide as 360 degrees. There are several panoramic cameras that produce a single negative this wide, but knowing how delicate the Widelux is, I can only imagine the problems that could be encountered taking one of these on a backpacking trip. I've been working mainly in black and white, but have experimented extensively with handtinting. I'm planning to put some of these tinted pictures on the web as soon as I find a good way of reproducing the "tinted" quality with a scanner.
