Plastic Panoramic

I’ve always been a great fan of panoramic photography, and over the past year I have absolutely LOVED my hasselblad xpan panoramic camera.  It is my take everywhere camera, nothing else I own can match the quality of this camera.  Before I bit the bullet and bought my used xpan, I tried some less expensive alternatives such as the Horizon 202, the Pan-o-gull and the Vivitar Pn2011.  In the end I was always frustrated by the limitations of these cameras, and in some cases the quality was horrible.

While browsing the web today on Four Corners Dark, I came across Deon Reynolds blog.  The site has some truly wonderful photographs.  I was most interested in the Plastic Panorama Photography post.  Deon takes old Kodak disposable panoramic cameras (discontinued since 1999), reloads them with Kodak Tri-X, adds a yellow filter, and voila, an inexpensive, reusable panoramic camera that produces some truly outstanding images.

I highly recommend heading over to Deon’s blog to check out his DIY and wonderful pictures.
