HORIZON 205 - MEDIUM-FORMAT PANORAMIC CAMERA

11
The Horizon-205pc is the professional middle-sized photographic camera with a rotating non-interchangeable built-in lens. The camera is intended for different panoramic shooting: landscapes, reports, interiors, architecture, etc.

It may be used successfully during the advertising and decorating practice, in scientific, technical photography and other kinds of photographing by means of the roll film (of the 120-type).

The Horizon-205pc camera has the next advantages:

metallic focal shutter with the shutter speeds of 1, 1/2, 1/4, 1/8, 1/30 and 1/60 sec; the shutter permits to take pictures within premises or in streets under the conditions of weak illumination;
the lens which rotates during operation provides the necessary quality of the image across the whole field of the frame at the expense of elimination of the unevitable optical distortion which takes place when shooting by other types of cameras and using wide angle lenses;
the optical viewfinder gives the possibility to define exactly the limits of the taken subject.
The right position of the camera, that is, “strictly along the horizon”, is controlled with the help of the level which is visible in the viewfinder field of view;
THE ESSENTIAL ADVANTAGE OF THE HORIZON-205PC CAMERA IS ITSSHIFT-MECHANISMWHICH PERMITS MOVEMENT OF THE LENS UP AND DOWN ALONG THE VERTICAL AT THE DISTANCE OF 7mm RELATIVELY THE CENTRAL ZERO POINT; SUCH MOVEMENT CONSIDERABLY EXTENDS TECHNICAL POSSIBILITIES OF PHOTOGRAPHING;
high quality prints of the large size may be made from the negatives which were produced by the camera during taking pictures.

    Серьёзная машинка. Интресно где и кто её реально применяет. Сайт Zenitа почему-то закрыли. Блин Такие мощности и у ломо и у Зенита да и вообще у фототехнических заводов и все как-то скромно через пень колоду, маркетинг жутко хромает.
