Paper Abstract

An experimental panoramic camera has been breadboarded which generates film strips side by side, diagonally across a 91/2-inch film web. Both scanning optics and film move continuously and no clamping mechanism or vacuum platen is required. This enables the camera to operate at over 10 frames per second. Other advantages are convenient stereoscopic viewing, and the use of much smaller film spools than for similar coverage of a conventional panoramic camera.
