Horizon Perfekt: I Can't Stop Nodding to this Head-Turning Camera

As the name implies, the Horizon can capture everything on the horizon. With a squeeze of the shutter release, the turning lens records everything the eyes can see. No other camera come close to the panoramic view it can produce!

On one occasion, my friend lent me his Horizon Perfekt, I felt so happy and excited! I can’t wait to bring it out for a walk with my friends. But, as I didn’t like to read instruction manuals, things went wrong as I didn’t load the films properly. Fortunately, the results still blew me away! Using slow shutter during the evening hours, I managed to capture the shots I want!

Hence, I brought it to a hot balloon festival in Taitung. I felt confident and the last incident won’t happen again. Little did I knew that despite my confidence, the same problem surfaced again.(I had cut away the bad shots on both ends).

Although I failed again, it is really good at capturing images, taking in everything in front of it, wider and much more than what my eyes can see! I will definitely succeed if given another chance. Hence, I brought it out again!

At last, I succeeded! Woohoo! Capturing panoramic shots is its basic function, what surprised me was the beautiful depth of field! Therefore, don’t get scared by my failures, in actual fact, I can’t praise the Horizon Perfekt enough and it is definitely number 1 on my shopping list!
