The Horizon Perfekt has long been a favorite of the Lomography community, loved for the crisp panoramas and vibrant cross-processed photos it's capable of taking. Have you been thinking of adding this popular panoramic shooter in your camera collection, but would like to know more about it first? Maybe some reviews from passionate Perfekt photographers will help you decide!
The bright viewfinder with a level is helpful for keeping the camera in horizontal way, without tilts. Although for the first time, you may need some practice (as with all things) to simultaneously take a look at the landscape in the viewfinder and the bubble level (the same difficulty that you can have the first time you use a Lubitel camera and look into the viewfinder; you might be disoriented for a moment for the exchange right-left on the image!).
Horizon Perfekt: I Can’t Stop Nodding to this Head-Turning Camera by leftymia and translated by coolsigg
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!
Since the first time I saw the photos produced by the Horizon cameras, I was excited to own one. But the device is a little expensive. I tried to be satisfied with my classic cameras. But this is like watching a 4/3 everyday although the greatest movies are displayed in Cinemascope format. I finally decided to buy the Horizon Perfekt.
Apart from the technical specifications, it’s worth mentioning that this is a camera that produces some of the greatest images I have ever seen and that I’ve been able to take. The photos are always crystal clear and sharp, since the control is fully manual and it’s all left up to the photographer to get the perfect exposure.
This hefty machine cares nothing about what’s “in” at the moment, like light weight or most battery life. Instead, it’s focused on all the good ole favorites like great engineering, no batteries, and adjustable shutter speeds and apertures.
